    "Cyclone Rate" at Embassy Suites in FW for TCU game.

    The Embassy Suites in Downtown Ft. Worth is offering a special "Cyclone Rate" of $199. for the TCU game. The hotel has a full made to order breakfast, free happy hours nightly and is located in the heart of Ft. Worth, with Billy Bob's, Flying Saucer Bar etc close by. Their normal rate is $289. and it's probably the nicest hotel in Ft.Worth. Ten minutes to TCU campus. There are a limited number of rooms, so call if interested. This is not an Iowa State official event, and no one is making any money from it. We have several in our group, and they were nice enough to accommodate. They will honor the rate for three nights if needed. We have four couples in our group
    .

    We're planning on taking our tailgate stuff and doing it on our own. Might stop by if there is an alumni function, but we really enjoy mixing with the locals. It was great fun at UConn last year.

    The ISU Club down here will be setting aside a Cyclone tailgate area. We're also tentatively planning something at a bar Friday night downtown.

    Thanks Ketel. We got Friday night and Saturday night locked in there.
    7 of us from Iowa will be heading down.

    Got a FYI from front desk:
    Drinks on house from 5:30-7:30 every night.
    Max of 6 people per room.
    They have a shuttle.

    I swear you guys have been at every road game I've ever gone to.


    We're crashing w/a buddy in Lewisville (north-central part of DFW metro) and we bought tickets and a parking spot about 300 yards from Amon Carter in the middle of a TCU tailgate.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I believe that is correct. If the Utah game would have happened last year, we probably would have went to that one too.

    We're going to be tailgating on Boyd Ave. If you Google it, its directly north of the stadium, and ends at the start of the main TCU lot.

    I believe that is correct. If the Utah game would have happened last year, we probably would have went to that one too.
    Hitting Stillwater too? We're going to do that and possibly Lawrence if we aren't completely burned out and broke at that point.

    I can't make it, but I bet I could cover at least $100 of my nightly hotel bill with this alone.
