Alabama game - MobileBama - 05-19-2011 01:59 PM
How many of you are planning on making the trip down? Any one staying in Tuscaloosa?
I hope a lot of you come down. It's going to be a very emotional weekend for sure. We can use all the visitors we can get so please don't let this tornado deter your plans
Tuscaloosa is a fun college town and Bryant Denny Stadium is a great place to watch a game.

Thanks for the invitation. I have no doubt that a game at ‘Bama is something else. I only hope Coach Saban remembers his days as Flash and takes mercy on us.
I hope Tuscaloosa and the Tide community recovers from those recent devastating storms.

I'm sure other Bama fans will chime in but here's my recs for places to eat while you're in town. There are lots of restaurants but I would focus on these
Chuck's Fish - upscale but fun restaurant downtown serving fresh fish/steaks/sushi
Cypress Inn - cool atmosphere on the river across from campus
Dreamland BBQ - decent ribs but great local atmosphere w/ football history oozing all over. Definitely worth a stop
Ramma Jamma's - right behind stadium. Good burgers
Mugshots - great burgers / fun restaurant downtown
Buffalo Phil's - ok food but great location on the strip next to campus. Go here before the game for sure
Waysider - legendary Tuscaloosa breakfast spot
Afternoon drinks (on the strip next to campus)
Houndstooth - patio
Bear Trap - upstairs deck
Buffalo Phil's - patio
downtown is geared toward older (21+) crowd and all bars are close by. There are a lot so you can just bar hop.
Bars on the strip are great too. Again, you can bar hop but I prefer The Houndstooth, Red Shed, Gallettes/Campus Party Store and The Bear Trap.
Gallettes/Campus Party Store has exceptional eye candy but gets packed late. Go early, get a wristband, go to other bars then come back.
Not sure if you were in a fraternity, but each chapter will be having food, drinks and bands before the game and on Friday night.
Gallettes/Campus Party Store - again, tons of girls hanging out before the game
Buffalo Phil's and Houndstooth- both popular option for hanging out before the game
I hope this helps! Feel free to pm me if you have specific questions. Any of you Kent State fans are welcome to send me a message and I'll do my best to help you out. ROLL TIDE!

Dreamland BBQ definitely looks like the place for me. Thanks for the great guide. When Alabama comes to visit Kent State in 40 years I'll be sure to make a guide for you as well!

I will be a HUGE Kent State fan that day. Good luck and remember you have to beat the SEC officials as well as the Criminal Turds.
RE: Alabama game - Jolly67 - 05-23-2011 07:52 AM
Does anybody have a clue as to the possible start time for this game?
RE: Alabama game - ATTALLABLAZE - 05-23-2011 04:02 PM
What is the date of this game? If it does not interfear with us I may be willing to attend and wear Kent State colors and cheer for you guys. This would be a great win for the Golden Flashes if you could pull it off.
