    Drinking outside Hilton

    Is it legal to drink outside of Hilton on the steps? I would like to drink tomorrow before the game while waiting in line but don't really want an open container ticket.

    Re: Drinking outside Hilton

    I was asking this same question on the way in last game. Can we have a beer on the walk up like football games?

    I'm just surprised you have any booze left after the Tech game.

    It's too cold during basketball season, I'd recommend having your pregame drinks while you drive up to the game. Think of it as a moving tailgate party.

    Re: Drinking outside Hilton

    "The possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages on the Iowa State University campus will be permitted in accordance with state law. Pursuant to the Board of Regents policies, the consumption of alcoholic beverages on the campus will generally be permitted only where approved by the Senior Vice President for Business and Finance."

    Basically the only reason you can drink before football games is because the school is allowing adults to drink on their property at that designated time. The only real way to answer this is to call them and see if they allow alcohol on their property before basketball games. Why not bring a cheap flask and throw it away when it's empty? That's what we did before basketball games.

    They should allow it for the circus you have to enter through.

    As opposed to a decent flask that you put in your pocket when it's empty? That's what I do for football games, no reason to stop the party in the parking lot. Pretty soon I'll have quite the collection of souvenir cups!

    I've tried to get in the South door and West door both this year and was turned away and told to go to the North door.

    Last year as a student I went in the West and East doors all the time. Haven't tried that at all this year but I have also heard that they won't do it, and that the student ID scanners are only at the North doors.

    One way to get around this could be to print your student ticket off... then the "normal" barcode scanners would work on it and you could presumably go in any of the entrances. Someone should try this tomorrow
