Why Use Our Guides?
It doesn't matter if you've lived somewhere for 40 years or you've adopted a brand new hometown, there are times that you just want to shake things up and try something new.
It's highly unusual for anyone to have tried every dining experience, attended every show and event, know of every game on the sports schedule, and be aware of every way to get discounts or freebies. So, city guides can be valuable resources for everyone.
Our little family team at OTL Seat Filler Clubs have been working with the arts and entertainment communities in many major US markets, as well as in London, for more than five years now. We've established relationships with the movers and shakers who provide fun, entertaining, and diverse things to do.
Through our show and event partnerships as well as the information and we've received from our members, we've realized that people are always looking for new things to do.
Outside of the box information
While a great many people may be satisfied with video streaming, gaming, and other home-based activities, there's still a huge population anxious to be social.
It's fun to go out to dinner or to see a show. Live music is an entirely different experience than Pandora, and, if you love sports, then you want to be right where the action is taking place. New ideas, available discounts, and general knowledge on what's happening in your city is valuable.
So, if you're wondering why you should use our city guides, it's because we're tapping into our resources to make the search quick and easy for you. We're providing fresh and current content that you'll find relevant. It'll save you time so you can actually go out and experience rather than just read.
The Cities We've Selected To Cover
Our city guides will cover Atlanta Georgia, Austin Texas, Charlotte North Carolina, Chicago Illinois, Denver Colorado, London England, Miami-Fort Lauderdale Florida, Nashville Tennessee, New England (Boston and Connecticut), Portland Oregon, Raleigh-Durham North Carolina, St Louis Missouri, San Francisco California, Seattle Washington, and Tampa-St Petersburg Florida.
You may be wondering why we've selected to cover these 16 particular areas?
Because we've decided to stay consistent with our OTL Seat Filler Club locations, matching them one for one. We currently have 15 cities in the United States as well as London. So, we're already familiar with the entertainment communities, we can pass on the inside scoop regarding ticket discounts, free events, music, theater, comedy, sports, family events, and more.
Furthermore, we're also using our resources to provide you with other valuable information that you may be looking for like restaurant recommendations, clubs and organizations, senior activities, and ways to stretch your budget with discounts and subscriptions.
As we launch new OTL Seat Filler Membership Club locations, we'll add new city guides to correspond to each additional region.
About OTL Seat Filler Membership Clubs
OTL Seat Filler Membership Clubs launched more than five years ago. They're relatively small clubs with members who enjoy all kinds of live entertainment including theatre, music, and comedy. Members pay very low dues of 11.99 a month with additional discounts for seniors, military, police, fire, rescue, teachers, and students.
That's all they pay, though.
All show tickets for members and their guests are free. Tickets may cost 5 or over 100 apiece but members are always on the comp list.
Where do the free tickets come from for seat filler members?
OTL partners with the local arts and entertainment communities as a private resource for venues. So, when a show or event has unsold seats, it can privately offer the tickets to OTL members.
Since a bigger audience is always preferable, it makes sense for OTL's show partners to offer the tickets and introduce some new, excited patrons to their awesome productions. Furthermore, members also spend money on food, beverage, and merchandise so it's a win-win.
The reservations and ticket pick-up procedure
When a partner offers tickets to an OTL club, the information is posted in the members-only area. Members make online reservations and then they pick up the tickets at the venue's Box Office just before the show starts.
OTL provides a will call list to the venue so nothing is needed other than an ID to pick up the free tickets.
Club Locations = City Guides
The OTL membership club locations coincide with the City Guides provided on this website. We're striving to provide a comprehensive source for things to do in your city as well as discounts, ticket resources, restaurant recommendations, and other hometown-based information that you may appreciate.
You can visit the club locations page on this OTL Seat Filler Club website. Memberships are individual to each city but seat filler members also receive guest pass privileges to all OTL club locations in the US and in London.
