Before, during or after the PSU game on Saturday, stop by the Cancer Support Community's Charity Beer Garden and save on a pint of craft beer flowing from 10 taps. You can also grab some Slows Bar BQ and a seat out of the sun and in front of a big screen.
Mention MGoBlog a the ID/ticket table and your $6 craft beer is $5.
Find it at 327 E. Hoover Ave., adjacent to Elbel Field, immediately east of the railroad tracks (used to be Purchase Radio Supply) and kitty-corner from the MMB's Revelli Hall
This and every game day, you'll find:
- 10 taps with local craft beers (plus bottled water, Coke/Diet/Sprite)
- indoor seating in the warehouse
- two big screen TV's for GameDay, pe-game, the game, post-game,
- family-friendly--bring your kids
- cash or credit cards
...and 100% of beer sales benefit the charity!
Thanks, in advance, for the support of the MGoBlog community.
We all have our gameday routines, right, but what do you do when you're already on your way to the Big House and you feel a sudden urge for great barbeque or a cold pint? Head to the south end of Elbel Field and visit Detroit's own Slows Bar BQ food truck and a Charity Beer Garden hosted by the local Cancer Support Community (100% of beer revenue goes to the CSC).
Closest beer to the Big House...and for a great cause!

Eat and drink for charity!
One of our sponsors called me this week to let me know they’ve made a bit of a purchase. Tailgater Concierge heard the plot just across from the stadium became available and jumped on it. Since this JUST happened they asked our help to get the word out, especially for this week against Colorado.
Their deal is if you want a tailgate and don’t want to THROW a tailgate, they will do all of that for you. They have the tent and the chairs and the tableclothed table and the cooler all set up for you. They’ll deliver whichever food/beverages you request (you can also bring your own stuff; they can supply a grill). They will even supply a runabout mother to staff it and pressure your guests to eat up or it all goes to waste!
If you’re interested they’ve got a deal going on for MGoBlog readers for a 20% discount with the code Tailgate. So get 10 buddies together for $50 each and you’ve got a prime spot with everything you want, and don’t have to worry about setup, takedown, or pretty much anything except gameday traffic.
You can also reserve a parking spot there and throw your own tailgate. I think that’s $65.
So this is the house, on Google maps:
Let’s spin that little yellow dude 180 degrees:
THE FUTURE: AN MGOTAILGATE WITH MARLIN THIS YEAR
They’re also going to throw us a tailgate there later on. Mentally pencil in the Wisconsin game for a tailgate for Marlin Jackson’s Fight for Life Foundation, which bears reminding is seriously one of the most forward-thinking and well run organizations for providing educational opportunities to disadvantaged kids. We’ll have a formal announcement once the details are settled.
My buddy and I will be in town for the UNLV game. I haven't been back to The Big House since I was a kid, so I'm coming to you guys for advice.
What are the best spots for tailgating near the stadium? We obviously aren't looking for anything with a season pass. Just somewhere to plop down a couple of camper chairs, a cooler and a portable grill for a few hours.
