    Road Trip to Boulder Planned!

    Myself and two buddies have started plans for a trip to Boulder to watch the Clones against the Buffs.
    We are still in the preliminary stages but wanted to know if any of you have been to Boulder for a football game?
    If so, do you have any helpful hints? We are driving down in one day and plan on staying Friday and Saturday night.
    How is the tailgating on game day?
    Again any "helpful" hints would be appreciated.
    We are looking forward to making the road trip as this will probably be the last time the Clones and Buffs play for quite some time!
    Thanks and GO CYCLONES!

    Re: Road Trip to Boulder Planned!

    I had a friend tell me they went once, showed up three hours or so before game time and there was nobody there tailgating. Parking guy told them nobody really tailgates. Could be true or a story, I don't know from experience.

    Re: Road Trip to Boulder Planned!

    1) Avoid the parking ramp next to the Events Center.
    2) Buy your beer at a liquor store.
    3) Keep interaction with Buff fans at a minimum.
    4) Have your fun in Denver the day before, and after the game.
    5) Don't go to Casa Bonita. It sucks.

    Re: Road Trip to Boulder Planned!

    tailgating isn't much there, but there is an ISU tailgate going on at one of the hotels. Drink at a bar before the game, then head over.
    There is going to be a good size ISU contingent in Boulder.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Geonimous is absolutely correct. Being a stater we are accustomed to going out to the lots 5-6 hours before a game, well not in Colorado, or this will happen, see pic.

    Go thru Wyoming on your way out, drop down thru Ft. Collins and hit up the micro breweries.

    Pearl St. is pretty cool, like IA City's ped mall, but less douchey.

    How is Colorado ever going to improve if fans don't tailgate. Wait, that's right - the fans actually go "in" the stadium instead :)

    Interestingly, the lower section of the CU horseshoe is all students and they are notoriously bad about getting to the game on time.

    Re: Road Trip to Boulder Planned!

    Five of us are roadtrippin' in an RV. Anyone tailgating in the RV lot? I've been told that it's quite a ways away from the main tailgating lots.
