    What is everyone doing pre-game for the Insight Bowl?

    Are most people tailgating or is there anything official planned by the university?

    If anybody is up for doing pregame at a cool bar I would highly recommend visiting Four Peaks Brewing Company. Their beer is fantastic & their food is actually very good too. It's typical bar fare but pretty damn tasty stuff. It's not on Mill Ave. but it's only 1 mile from the stadium just on the other side of campus. I'd highly recommend all visitors to AZ to make a stop there at some point during their trip if you enjoy the microbrew experience.

    only problem is i am on the opposite side of the campus from the bar...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I might hit Mill Ave on the light rail. Zip around there, take shots, mix it up with the locals, then ride my *** back down the light rail to the game.

    THere will be an Alumni Association Tailgate before the game. And I'm sure that you will find plenty of tailgates around the staidum all day..

    I was under the impression that Mill Ave was within walking distance to the stadium. Not true?

    There will be at least 6 of us and we'll likely bar-hop on Mill Ave. then possibly wander the lots a little shortly before heading into the stadium. Just can't justify fighting the traffic and setting up the tailgate given that the lots don't open until noon. Is it gameday yet?

    2 of us doing the same. Is there an "official" ISU bar?

    If there isn't one I think those of you that are bar hopping should go ahead and assign one and start spreading the word now.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Does anyone know if these events are scheduled on MT time or Central?
