A Yankee heads south




 

Hey All,

I am planning on heading own to your great state for the Penn State/Bama game. I was hoping to get some advice

Hotels - which is the best to stay at? (or would renting a RV be a better idea?) Ideally, the hotel would be close to the stadium and the bars. Speaking of bars, which ones are the must visits and are there any speciality drinks that I would be doing myself a disservce by not ordering at least 5 of?

Tailgating - What is the best area to tailgate in? Ideally there would be some other Penn Staters around the area but I would like to expereince the true SEC tailgate so I don't want to be in a visitors only area. What time do the parking lots open?

Tickets - I am not sure yet if I will be able to get tickets from Penn State. How hard are Bama tickets to get day of from a scalper? Is there a lot of talk from your side about this being a hard ticket to get?

Restaurants - which are the best. If reservations are needed, how far out should we make them?

Bars - how crowded do they get for a football weekend? Ideally I am planning on arriving on Tuesday or Wed so I can check out the bars/campus while it isn't too crowded.

Thanks for your input and this time next year if anyone is planning on making the trip up to Happy Valley come on over to www.blackshoediaries.com and there will be a plethora of people to give advice.

PS - Don't worry, I am not a Damn Yankee. I will be heaidng back up north after the game.
