Thanks for all the suggestions guys. It was a fun weekend. I was originally trying to post pictures as we went, but man...what's up with the cell signal around the stadium? 75% of the people in the area couldn't get a signal. I think someone said T-Mobile is the only service that works right around there?
We started at Jordan's about 9am-ish. I'm a cheap ass and don't mind walking, so I hate paying for parking. I dropped off my wife and went on the hunt for a free spot. Got one just off Regent, in the residential area west of the stadium. I think it was near a school or something? The walk down Regent and through the stadium area was trippy. SO MUCH RED! I was diggin the red/white overalls, not gonna lie. Even in the sparser areas of the campus (when I was looking for parking) seeing small marching band contingents was interesting. Marching and playing to nobody. Added to the vibe though.
I got to Jordan's and the line to get in was insane. Add to that the fact I could barely get off a text to my wife (we're not T-Mobile) and finding her was an adventure. Once I found her inside, it actually wasn't too crowded in there. We started wondering if we should have gone to Lucky's 1313 instead. Their place looked cooler and crowded, so we bailed and went over there. Bad idea. We stood in line outside for 40+ minutes before the line completely stopped (place was full). We actually missed the first WI touchdown waiting in line. So, we went back to Jordan's and got back in pretty easily.
It had filled up at that point, and was a nice middle-ground of being packed but not TOO TOO packed, like Lucky's apparently would have been. Game was fun, and there was no shortage of things to cheer about. There was a bachelorette party at Jordan's, which added a lot more penis paraphernalia than I typically see at a football game.
We hadn't realized there was no way to get food, so by halftime we were starving. Given the udder lack of suspense in the game at that point, we decided to leave and go to Schwoegler's for the second half and to get some grub. It was right near our hotel, so that was convenient. It was really crowded with fans as well, but we got seats at the bar. Food was decent and we were treated to a trumpeter every time WI did anything good. Was still a fun atmosphere.
After the game we played a few pins, then went to the room for a bit before the concert. Overall a fun weekend. Thanks again for the suggestions, it totally helped us craft out the day!
