    Re: knapp center parking

    Was just there for the UpperIowa/Drake exhibition game, my first time there so I stopped to ask campus security. He told me to park in the lot at Forest and 25th. Forest is a main road on the south side of Knapp and 25th is on its east side. I parked in the commuter lot across from Knapp and didn't get towed or ticketed.

    Edited: yeah... like I said first and only there and just trying to help the guy out

    I think you mean Forest and 25th. You wouldn't want to walk from 5th and Forest to the Knapp Center.

    That walk would mean a certain death for you.

    You'd probably want an RPG to make that walk...

    A single-shot weapon? Would that really be practical?

    To the OP---Thanks for asking this question. This was my question this morning as well.

    Is 25th and Forest the best parking lot, or is there another spot?

    Re: knapp center parking

    As a Drake alum, I suggest you don't park east of 24th if you can help it at all. The lots at 25th and Forest are mostly reserved for Drake season ticket holders. You're going to want to get there early on a full house night at the Knapp Center. You will want to see what is available around Forest between 30th and 25th streets. There isn't a lot of good parking in the area unfortunately. With that being said, go eat at Jethroe's BBQ at 32nd and Forest before the game. Best side dishes in town.

    Re: knapp center parking

    I'm already parked on 24th st, next to the Post Office. How's that for getting here early?!

    Of course, I have a full day of class, but that's beside the point.

    Re: knapp center parking

    Speaking of going to the game, are food selections at the Knapp any good?

    We're pretty much leaving straight after work to drive down.

    Only if it's mounted in a group of 8 on top of an armored personnel carrier.

    OK, that would be awesome. Is it self-loading and repeating?
