    UPDATE....If you are going to the TCU Game, check this out....



    It's always fun to find a bar that is welcoming Iowa State fans on an away trip, and here is one that is for the TCU game. Interesting that their featured drink is the "Cyclone" so maybe it's just meant to be! It is a brand new bar and grill that has just opened, and they hope to be a Big 12 gathering place. FREE parking for patrons day of game, and FREE shuttle to game. They are only 1/2 mile from stadium. Here is a note I received from the owner....


    Per our conversation last night, I have attached our food menu, specialty drink menu and our whiskey/bourbon/scotch list. Just to recap our conversation, XII Whiskey Bar and Grill is well within walking distance to Amon Carter Stadium, as well as the campus. We have a parking garage located on the eastside of the building that is free for patrons only. Hopefully by the time ISU comes to town, I'll have our shuttle service up and running.



    We would love to host all ISU alumni, fans and students, so feel free to make XII Whiskey Bar and Grill your pregame, game and after game destination when ISU comes to town. Feel free to contact me personally should you have any further questions!

    PS. Our website is not complete as yet, but should be soon. Check it out.

    Yes, the parking is for all customers who eat and drink at our place and then want to go to the game, so you guys are all good with the parking aspect. I am looking forward to hosting you Cyclones!

    I was told that parking is almost impossible near stadium and called this new grill out of the blue. They are offering FREE parking and free shuttle for customers. The want business and it's a win-win for Iowa Staters. Hopefully a win-win-win including the game! Away games are a blast, you should come. Quite a few I Staters are staying at the Embassy Suites downtown Ft. Worth fyi.

    Yes, this place is just a few blocks SE of the stadium as Berry runs east-west on the south side of the TCU campus. The campus isn't that big and is easy to walk through as you will walk through the dorm side of the campus (the campus is separated by University Drive).

    If you are staying at the Embassy Suites downtown you'll be in the Sundance Square area. Many bars and restaurants there. You'll have a great time. Fort Worth is a terrific Texas city.

    Re: If you are going to the TCU Game, check this out....

    Downtown/Sundance Square is fun (The Library, Vice, Flying Saucer, Petes Piano Bar) but most of the TCU crowd now goes to West 7th. Hit up Capital Bar (they actually have Iowa State stuff!) you won't be disappointed. The other bar that is popular is Bar Louie because of its open roof bar upstairs. Another option is the stock yards, if you are into country music. Billy Bobs and Cadillac's are the places to go. Plenty of places to eat and drink.

    I can honestly tell you that TCU has taken on the BigXII completely and they do look forward to playing us. Many of them think they should have lost the 2005 Houston Bowl.

    I'm really considering going to this game. Does anyone have any idea where the visiting fan base usually gets put at ticket wise?
