    Boulder

    A group of us are considering a last minute trip to Boulder. None of us have ever been there before. Does anyone have any advice for where to tailgate? Where would the best place be to find tickets? Any miscellaneous advice?

    I bought four tickets through www.groupon.com (click on Denver) for $15 each, but that offer may no longer be available - I'm not sure.

    Re: Boulder

    My friend's wife lives in Boulder, she said they're forcasted to get some snow over the next few days. It's probably still too warm out there for it to stick around, but it could possibly snow during the game.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Boulder

    There has been several posts on this topic, but the short is:
    -CU athletic office has a 4-pack for 4 tickets, 4 sandwiches, 4 sodas for $15 each. I wouldn't worry about the seats, Folsom will be essentially GA with the meltdown going on. Also gives you admission to:
    -Millineum Harvest House ISU Tailgate. Not tailgating proper, but that doesn't really happen in Boulder. Also, with the early game, you won't have to worry about setting up/taking down stuff here.

    We hope any and all of you make it up.

    -1250 new seats have been sold since the news this morning, regardless you'll get seats but they wont be as good as they'd have been yesterday.
    -Good advice on HH for visitors
    -disagree on tailgating in boulder it happens but parking is so limited we jsut dont leave any fo visitors.

    Here is a link to a georgia blog with some ideas for things to do:

    Does your friend live separate from his wife?

    Re: Boulder

    One other note boulder cops f'ing suck, they live for DUI's MIP's and open container tickets (insert jon bennet ramsey comment here). If you do tailgate stay in the lots and off streets. If you drink dont drive, they are ruthless.

    It didn't snow much yesterday afternoon, but it is still on the ground this AM. I expect it gone by afternoon, but we should get more tomorrow.

    Re: Boulder

    Having lived in Colorado most of last year I learned one significant thing concerning Boulder................."It is the Peoples Republic of Boulder". I found it a strange environment. Much like Eugene, OR.

    While I appreciate Absinthe coming on and giving advice, this is point #1 for me. Tailgating, even if you could find a good spot, will all of a sudden be not fun because of this. Go to the ISU tailgate at MHH, at least then you're mostly surrounded by Cyclones. Most away games I try to mingle with the opposition, but not this one.
