Im heading into Ann Arbor for the game early on Saturday. I'm bringing 3 of my friends (24, 27, 28 years old) to their first game. I've only been to a couple myself. Need some help with tailgating plans. I have hotel reservations for that night, so I'd like to park at the hotel and just cab it over to the stadium.
And now come the questions ... Should I drive my car and park at the golf course? I'd definitely like to avoid driving, but I have absolutely no tailgating ties. I'm driving up from Northern Indiana, so I don't have any Ann Arbor / U of M connections. I'm worried that if I don't have a car at the golf course that we'll just be stuck walking in circles. I wasn't really sure what there is to do close to the stadium if we needed a place to sit down and chill. I suppose I could bank on finding a tailgate party to crash, but I don't like imposing (I'm sure that'll change after 5 or 10 beers).
Just thought I'd feel out the MGOBLOG community and see what a good gameplan would be. Also, any suggestions on where to go the night of the game would be good. I'm assuming anywhere on South U would be good from reading other posts.
