    Don't get seats in the mezzanine if you can help it. They're pretty far up.

    Know what? The chairs are actually spacious! The wine isn't half bad. They had a coffee porter on tap that was really impressive. That yard of margarita? Well I just should have known better. Blech!

    I've been to the Erwin Center for concerts, college basketball games and monster truck rallies, and each time I'm always impressed by how well the venue accommodates each event. Small, yet perfect!

    The wi-call and the tickets are pickup and sold at the same window. Really? Waste of time.

    Don't ever support the Ringling Bro's Circus when they come to the Erwin Center (or anywhere)- they've been caught on film here in Austin abusing the animals- so awful! ;(

    UT needs a better basketball arena. Smaller and more intimate. Maybe right on campus, where students would have no excuse for not packing the place.

    UNC left "the Drum," with a 59-55 victory over Tulsa in the 2000 Elite 8. On that UNC team was a freshman…future NFL star Julius Peppers.

    Don't buy seats in row 22 and if you're 60 or over forget it. Too many stairs

    When there are long lines at the doors, walk around to the east side doors, where there's usually no line at all.
