    Suggestions for an Aggie...

    I will be coming in for the game this weekend.. Just lookin for a few suggestions on things to do, or avoid this weekend.

    Will be arriving on Friday, looking for a great place to go eat and lookin for some good bars to hit up.. suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, if anyone wants to meet a couple possible future major leaguers, me n group are looking for some friendly folks with tailgates that we might be able to stop by.. there are 6 of us total, and one of the guys in my group is our 2012 MLB 1st rounder Michael Wacha..

    But mainly some do's and don'ts for the weekend are appreciated..

    Good luck to you guys, I'm not coming in with any grand ideas of an upset but I do hope we keep it competitive...

    If anyone would like to contact me directly with suggestions/ideas I'd appreciate that as well...

    Thanks and Gig Em

    Hope you have a great weekend, but leave just a little disappointed!

    It ought to be an electric atmosphere...we've been on the road and now are looking forward to three straight home games.

    Try the Waysider for breakfast. I love a burger from Mugshots!

    Me and my wife have been to games and not being from the area, we have parked at University Mall on MacFarland and they have shuttle buses that will bring you right by the south endzone and pick up after the game for a nominal fee the last time I think it was $10 a head. FYI that was befor the tornado so I do not know it it still an option, maybe someone on here can update the info.

    Don't go to Tuscaloosa without visiting the Bryant Museum. I've taken buddies there from OU to Neb fans and they all enjoyed it. If you really have an appreciation for the game of college football you won't want to miss it.

    Friday- Cypress Inn on the river in Northport
    Bar cruising on "the strip" (University Blvd) including the Houndstooth and my favorite dive Egan's
    Saturday morning- breakfast at the Waysider. Tour the Bryant Museum (must do) As for tailgating, just be nice and everyone will invite you in for food and adult beverages on the Quad

    Almost close enough to the pasture to smell it!

    Re: Suggestions for an Aggie...

    Texans don't even know what good BBQ is. Beef is for steak, hamburgers, and chili!

    Welcome, and I hope you have good until the end of the game.
