Head from there to the Docks - should still be some boats cruising the river - then cross the river to go downtown to any of the options mentioned above. I think Oliver House and the micro brewery are good choices. Isn't the Dirty Bird still open? That place would seem to be perfect for the 20 something crowd. I was there after one of the Mud Hen playoff games about 4 years ago and you could barely get in. Do that on Friday - and stay downtown - then check out and head closer to campus for Saturday activities.

My thoughts - but I haven't lived in Toledo for over 15 years.

The docks are a great bet. Chinese investors just bought it and putting momey on right now. All restaurants will be open by the summer. Then i would head downtown to the irish pub near the baseball stadium. I was just there last fall and its sweet.....good crowd and some love music. I would stay crown plaza on the river.

Talk about not being able to put 2 and 2 together, it just occurred to me...

condolences to your team UNHWildcats05. I had to look it up to be sure but for those like me who haven't put it together, just a bit back a young man, a football player was killed in Boulder protecting his girlfriend from a robber. That young man was a player for UNH.

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
Thanks from everyone in Wildcat Nation... Talk about a dose of reality and putting things in perspective...Very sad story... Things in the program are slowly returning to normal, but it is definitely something that will be an underlying story for the upcoming season...

Anyway, on to more pleasant things, thanks for all the great tips!!

We should be in Toledo on Thursday around 11 am. I think plenty of time to grab lunch/do some sightseeing/grab some food and drinks before heading over to do some tailgating pregame. Thanks to you guys I think we have some great ideas on where we want to go. What time are bars open till in Toledo?

Thanks again for the info. and if I think of anything else, I will be sure to post here!!

How come they keep throwing me out at 1am?

I need a new agent.

Not too soon I suppose to remember to tell people there's no Douglass Rd Exit or entrance for about a year.

Great story from ABC 13 news on downtown Toledo and all the new business establishments that have opened near Fifth Third Field and the warehouse district. Any out of towners first 'Toledo experience' should include some stops at these fine drinking and eating establishments. Both the Park Inn and Crowne Plaza are walking distance to the warehouse district. My personal favorite would be The Blarney with live music every Friday and Saturday night...

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
Hello again,

We are trying to work out our tailgating plan for gameday.

Do the folks who operate the Jambulance welcome opponents fans?

Seeing as how we wont have any of our regular gear, it may be cool to tailgate with some Toledo fans.

Not sure what we are doing yet, but just a thought.

Thanks again.

I certainly don't speak for Pat (RangerRocket) but he has a reputation for being a gracious host to visiting fans.
