Tailgating at Purdue...

Submitted by SpreadGuru on November 11th, 2010 at 2:18 PM

I am heading down with a big group for the game on Satuday.  Does anyone know where we should park to tailgate and not have to walk too far to the stadium?

I went to the game in '08 and will be going again Saturday.  Back in '08 we parked in the "Intramural Playing Fields" area and it was only like $15, and it really wasn't a bad walk to the stadium at all (15 minutes maybe?).  The tailgating scene there was pretty solid too, so as long as nothing's changed in 2 years, that's the place to go IMO...

I think that's the same as what they're now calling the IM Gold Lot.  Parked there I think 6 years ago for a Michigan/Purdue game, should be a decent number of tailgaters there. 

And because Purdue has resumed sucking after some good years under Tiller, parking is down to $10 in the cash lots.

If any of you get down there on Friday night, I would highly encourage you to check out the breakfast club around 7 a.m at their bars. Most of the students will be in halloween costumes and will wear these into the games.

I'd say the Gold Lot is your best option. The walk is about 15 or 20 minutes and it's maybe $10 or $15. That's where most of the tailgating goes on.
