I won a couple of tickets from work to see the Atlanta Hawks take on the San Antonio Spurs at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. The seats were great (especially since I didn't have to pay for them!) and the view was even better. We were about 12 rows from the court and they were considered boxed seats so we felt like we were getting the "star treatment." Unfortunately the Hawks got stomped 105 to 79 but we still had a blast!

The best bet in terms of parking is to ride MARTA. Parking is expensive and spaces are few and far between. It was an easy ride in on MARTA but it got kind of crowded on the way home...it just depends on what time the game starts/ends and what else is going on at the same time. It is only $1.50 one way on MARTA as opposed to at least $10 for parking if not more.
I was very impressed with the venue especially with it being my first time there. The seating is comfortable and roomy. The food was pretty reasonably priced for stadium food, although we did not eat there not knowing what to expect in terms of price or quality. The ushers are very helpful in getting you to your seat and very eager to answer any questions you might have.
I would definitely recommend that everyone go to the Phillips Arena at least once to truly experience it!
