Stay cool. We could meet you at Red door and celebrate. Grabbed a hotel nearby campus for Fri and Sat.

And I'm not sure the value of Maloort. Drinking should be fun not painful.

Doesn't sound like much tailgating plans though. Must be too much work for an 11am game. Maybe we will see if the bars open early as well.

I never said I wanna drink that garbage, just that they have it and for some reason Chicagoans LOVE pretending they enjoy it

3) "Losers" https://www.yelp.com/biz/losers-bar-and-...ashville-2

Loser is right next door to winners. Kinda one place but two. All three are about 1 mile from the Stadium

Ask your sister if the bars open early for 11am kickoffs. All of them say 11am openings.

For what it's worth....

https://brobible.com/sports/article/loca...ilt-vodka/

I went to LSU/UW at Lambeau. I was in shock by not only how many LSU fans were partying at 8am but the fact that so many drove, many motor homes. Some even brought catering style tailgate trailers and even trucks from Louisiana.

They have to have bars open early. If not they must not know NIUs following!!!

I saw the same thing when NIU was at the Independence Bowl (it was a SEC tie-in at the time), tons of motor homes and giant food spreads. They were some of the nicest fans as we were walking around with NIU gear on. One group stopped us and cooked us a ribeye, another group gave us homemade gumbo and whiskey. I was so stuffed walking into the game!

There’s a bar called Tavern right next to the others I mentioned. They open at 10am. 2 for 1 drinks I’ve been told.

Seems there are lots just SW of stadium but you need a pass. Pass is $200 for the year but single game is available on Stubhub. We’ve got a group of 12 who will tailgate. Looks like lots open at 8 am

Also found this for game day parking: https://vucommodores.com/directions/

Worked out of our Nashville office today and saw a couple NIU fans while I went to lunch across the street.

Most of my group is still in Illinois saying they’re concerned their flights won’t take off. Hope everyone makes it

If not, looking for takers, I’ll be alone. So I’ll see what everyone is up to.
