The title says it all, more or less, but I am curious to hear the MGOboard's plans for the game tomorrow. I am also new to Dallas / Jerryworld so not sure how the tailgating scene works. Any general information would be greatly appreciated. Some quick Google search information: College gameday starts 8 am central.... UM Dallas says there is an official pre-game tailgate at some place called "Humperdinks"..... Gates open at 4 centralEdit: sorry for format. Typing on the phone.
For those of us in Dallas....what are your plans?
On McKinney tonight. Let's party. Go Blue.
Was there fot a few hours.. Head hurts, really dehydrated, mission accomplished. Getting ready to drive over and wait in line to park! Tailgate all day baby! Lets Go Blue!!!
Agreed! That place was awesome.
Was there as well..packed with michigan folks
I get there tomorrow morning and I'm tailgating all day! I'm curious as to how the Michigans number of fans in attendance stacks up with bamas.
Wake up about 8, hit hotel resturant for a gut-bomb of a breakfast. Sausage, bacon, cheese, eggs, grease. It will help lubricate the inevitable hangover.
At 9, return to the room and flip on ND-Navy while getting ready for the day. At half-time, find a respectable place to finish watching the game and have lunch near transportation to JerryWorld.
At noon, go and immerse yourself in the incredibel culture that is already built up and will continue building up. Try to find the ESPN broadcast area. And remember - on college football Saturdays, 5 PM moves up to 11 AM.
Spend the afternoon watching games at every tailgate with a satellite TV, playing corn-hole with Bama fans and see if you can find any moonshine. They'll have some. They're Bama fans.
Enter the dome at least 1 hour before kickoff.
..and likely every other meal you have there...
Every meal I've had there consists of huge amounts of meat...and they're so proud of that.
That's because it's Dallas. Houston has the seafood plus meat. Grilled Shrimp tacos with mango, avocado, tomatoes and cilantro for breakfast before I hit the drive in 30 minutes.
Will the stadium parking be open early for those who purchased tickets? I was thinking of parking there early to see gameday, if not where is a good place to park nearby?
I bought a pass for lot 11, was told they don't open till noon. Will wake up, get breakfast at cracker barrel, hopefully get a spot for tailgating at noon. I am drunk in a bar, don't know where. go Blue, we will win....
Watch the game in Trophy Club and over analyze anything
My Father flew out to Dallas for the game this morning from Grand Rapids and he said more than half off his plane was people wearing Michigan shirts and people were playing Hail to the Victors on their phones and stuff.
....sorry, that was random.
I wouldn't expect many Alabama fans on a flight out of Grand Rapids.
And no drinking thread! Gah!
Pacifico and Sangria on vacation in LA
Go Blue, pull a miracle tomorrow please!
Get up early, grab breakfast at Denny's, try to find some cool activities with the Dallas club/watch early games.
Anyone by chance driving to the stadium, who wouldn't mind a few carpool guests? My Dad and I are staying at the Red Roof near the DFW airport. We'd happily chip in $
If so, send me an e-mail: [email protected]
In a L Quinta Laying here at 330am...can't sleep and too keyed up for game! Gonna get up and eat a free..hopefully decent...breakfast. Watch Navy pound ND ass for a little while the head over to Rangers lot J to try and get a good tailgate spot bout 11. Hopefully there won't be massive lines to get in which I feel there will be hence the early time. Once in set up generator...directv.. flat screen...tent and smoker and watch afternoon games while smoking some yardbird and sucking down beers and margaritas!! Feel free to stop on by!! GO BLUE!!
to Gameday, now.
Let us know how bad the traffic flow and people lining up for parking is if ya would? I'll save you some beer in lot J!!
Free parking until 1130. TGIF has Free parking with a 40 dollar purchase for the game.
met Brock Mealer. Stood 20 ft from Lloyd Brady. This is my Christmas.
How are the lines at stadium lots?
Of the Hilton Lincoln center. Drinking a Starbucks iced coffee red eye. Reading MGoblog in my iPhone. Hydrating. Researching effective bug sprays. Talking to Bama fans. So far, nothing but respectful southern folk. Rocking my new Adidias sideline polo. (side note, anyone know where mden is set up?) eating a big greasy breakfast. Couldn't sleep. Worked out at the hotel gym. Dropped the kids off at the pool. Double flush. Quick Walmart shopping for tailgate in lot ... 10? 11? Making sure I pack my tickets.
Rambling. Go blue!
M Den is setting up today outside the stadium in the Michigan plaza.
Lying in my bed as I type this. Everyone else is asleep but I can't sleep. Merry Michimas everyone!
Mermosas, breakfast, headed to the lots to setup the tailgate..
First, we went to Christie's on McKinney Ave. and met Drew Henson. It was packed and we shared a small table with him and some of his friends. What an incredibly friendly guy! Introduced himself like we had no clue who he was. He told us how excited he was that the team finally made its way down here. Also saw Remy Hamilton, but didn't get a chance to talk to him.
You have 13 points and yet I wish I was you.
