limited tickets starting at $500

Chances are, most of us won’t be watching the NBA All-Star Game courtside – or even in nosebleed-style, for that matter (the very limited amount of remaining tickets cost upwards of $500). But what the City Beautiful will soon learn is that while, yes, the All-Star game packs a powerhouse roster of players – Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, our own Dwight Howard, to name a few – the real action takes place off the court this weekend, as an influx of superstars land in Orlando, hosting club parties, roundtable discussions and comedy shows. Locals also give a collective nod to the game with basketball-related art shows, happy hour and game-viewing events, All-Star block parties and, wait for it, even a few free events (see here for complete listings). If Orlando can avoid the violent mayhem often coupled with NBA All-Star Weekend, it’ll be an impressive slam-dunk for our city. – Aimee Vitek
