THE ORIGINAL POST:
A couple weeks ago, I put together a google map with all of the Michigan bars I'm aware of (and also everything from the spreadsheet that bouje has been maintaining.) The map is here.
Hopefully this will prevent the "where's the Michigan bar in Pittsburgh/Fresno/Topeka/wherever" threads that pop up every week, but if your favorite gameday hangout isn't on here, put it in the thread and let me know. I'll do my best to keep the map up to date.
Tickets went on sale for the Advocare Classic in Dallas this morning. I bet there are still some available if you're interested. I grabbed a pack in 347.
Can anyone provide insight as to the area for hotels (ideally Starwoods), city layout (beyond the fact it's sprawling), food (tailgating), and other general topics of interest?
Edit 2: I think I edited the title to Tater's specifications (let me know if it's still clunky)
Just a friendly reminder, get your ticket on. They are now on sale for those with at least a point.

McShay's latest mock has a couple UM guys in round 1.. Taco is really trending up, but I'm stunned Jourdan Lewis fell out:
11. New Orleans Saints, 7-9
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan
Charlton really came on strong in the second half of the season, posting 10 sacks in his final 10 games. He showed a lot of improvement with his hands and overall technique in 2016. The Saints need a pass-rusher opposite Cameron Jordan, and Charlton has the size, speed and power to be a difference-maker off the edge.
17. Washington Redskins, 8-7-1
Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan
Peppers is a polarizing prospect in scouting circles. He needs to be protected from deep zone coverage, and he did not have much ball production at Michigan, with just one career interception. But he is a special athlete with elite speed and a unique knack for keeping blockers off his pads. His electrifying return ability will also be an asset in the NFL.
32. New England Patriots, 14-2
Haason Reddick, LB, Temple
Look for the Patriots to add a tight end early, perhaps Michigan's Jake Butt or Ole Miss' Evan Engram on Day 2. But given how the board fell, they could get better value by targeting Reddick here. He opened eyes at the Senior Bowl, proving he can thrive as an off-the-line LB. Reddick has a little Tedy Bruschi in him.
