Homecoming
Homecoming, better know as the last Saturday home game of the season.

How sad is that.

RE: Homecoming
ROLLLLLLL CALLLLLLL!!!! Who's all going to be there on Saturday cheering on our Huskies??

My buddy and I are driving out there Saturday morning, will be tailgating in the convo lot. First game of the year I can make. We're going to be loud, drunk and bringing the juice! Hope to see lots of my fellow Huskie diehards out there on Saturday. . .

Go Huskies, beat Ohio!

RE: Homecoming
Will there be an Alumni Village this year?
Alumni Village has faded away the last couple of years on a slow death march.
This was the place to be meet alumni, talking to former teachers and taking in the free food and refreshments.

RE: Homecoming
Any special gameday information I should know about? This will be my first game this season....

*How much does it cost to park in the convo lot?

*Do they sell beer on both the East and West sides? Just West?

*What kind of beer do they sell at Huskie Stadium? How much does a beer cost?

RE: Homecoming
The Convo parking is $15 I think.

Beer is sold on both sides and is about $4-$5. Selection is poor on the East side but the West side has some decent micro brews!

I sure hope so. My favorite part of homecoming except for the game of course.

Thanks.
Email states: "Come join your fellow Huskies for pre-game tailgating at the NIU Alumni Association tent in The Yard. Cost is free. Popcorn and water will be provided. Each college will have a table with swag and promotional items."

Talk about downsizing. We have gone from a Village of 10 plus large tents with free food in each college gathering tent to a single tent with some key chains and popcorn. The Alumni Village was one of the main reasons I donated big bucks to the Alumni Association.

RE: Homecoming
Since the weather will be ok, I will be there. Start at Fatty then move to east side visiting multiple tailgates. Then move to west side for more fun then game time.

I think domestic was Miller Lite or Coors Lite.

IPA's are around $8-9.

$15 isn't ridiculous. But yes, it's more than the $10 it used to be.

It's a well-paved open area with some grassy areas for families to throw the football around. Well stocked with clean porto's and trash can's. And not a bad walk to HS....

Bring a friend and then it's $7.50...…..Save 50% off Regular Price!....02-13-banana

East side was Keystone and High Life, I believe. 16 OZ cans though for 4 bucks is not bad.
