    Tailgating in Iowa City

    I hope this isn't too soon but my friends and I are going to the Iowa game this year and I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions about where to tailgate since they don't have the designated areas like we have in Ames. Also, I was wondering if there was an unofficial Cyclone tailgate area.

    Hopefully we break the losing streak at Iowa City.

    Go Clones!!

    I have a house on Melrose Pl. If you're dressed in cyclone gear, you're more than welcome to tailgate here. Three will be a ton of cyclones here.

    You are one great Cyclone fan, cycloneman42. You don't even know Zastr6 and you welcome him with open arms to park and tailgate at your house. You deserve several thousand postive reps for this classy move.

    I have some buddies that go to Iowa who live on Melrose Pl. I plan on tailgating over there with them for the game.

    You mean the nonexistent magic bus? I heard they couldn't get a permit from the city this year.

    Yeah, they are getting screwed big-time. The place they used to sit at got bought by someone new who jacked the rent up huge, then they thought they found a new place a few blocks away near an apartment building. One of the tenants or the apartment owner then filed a complaint about trying to sell beer without a liqour license. They have since tried to get it twice, only to be denied both times. It's a mess.

    I feel kinda bad for the Magic Bus crew. Not that I know any of them, but my understanding is it's a local rugby team and they donate half their proceeds to local children's charities. A couple greedy local businessmen noticed the popularity of the tailgate, purchased the real estate it took place on, raised the rent and when Magic Bus couldn't pay it, started their own tailgate party. The Magic Bus found a new venue but the city wouldn't approve it.

    As for the greedy businessmen, they made a bunch of improvements to the site, but evidently neglected to obtain the proper permits. The city not only denied their permit for a "temporary business venue", but they'll probably get cited for construction of a commercial parking lot in an area zoned residential! What goes around...

    Yeah, thats what I heard too. You know, its too bad, what with them donating the money to charity and all. Best of luck to them on finding a new spot.

    yes, hence the smiley face. I'm glad they donate proceeds, but it seems like thats the only tailgate option in IC. Fans on hawk boards are freaking about it.

    Re: Tailgating in Iowa City

    Only recommendation I'd have is to try to come into Iowa City from the south or south west

    Any exit off of 80 is a mess - go south on 380 a couple exits then come back in ... I think there's Lowes or something, worked slick for us the couple times we went.
