It came from the Atlantic Yards Report

For first game, Nets slash ticket and concession prices 50%--plus free M&Ms

Norman Oder, who attended last week's Nets debut in Newark, just got an email from Nets point guard Devin Harris:

I wanted to thank you for coming out to our preseason game at the Prudential Center. As the season begins, it is important that we get off to a great start and now more than ever my teammates and I need the support of fans like you.

That's why I'm bringing you this 50% Off Discount when you use Offer Code THANKS for tickets to our opening night game against Vince Carter, Dwight Howard, and the Orlando Magic on October 30th at 8pm. You will also be receiving free schedule magnets, free M&M's after the game, and 50% off all hot foods, candy, select beverages at the concession stands.

Mark your calendars: next ESDC board meeting is November 19

From an Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) press release:

The next meeting of the Board of Directors will tentatively be held on November 19, 2009 at a location to be announced closer to the time of the event.

Now I can't be certain that is when the ESDC will announce and approve final leases, contracts, and other documentation regarding Atlantic Yards, but that's probably the earliest potential date. As for the arena bonds, the Brooklyn Arena Local Development Corporation (BALDC) has to meet, as well.
