Plenty of insights on the town, but I'm also planning to hit Stubhub as of now. As the game approaches I expect to hear more and I'll pass along anything noteworthy. I will definitely ask some trusted familiars for intel regarding the stadium and seating.

FSU (Clemsoning makes a return to form) LSU Stanford ND I know, I know but I'm anticipating our youth to get in the way this year. Good news is revenge against Clemson in the best bowl game of the season (including playoffs).

I'm going too, AND I live in Madison. A hard fought victory is just fine. The Bucks shall not lose that game or I'll never hear the end of it. Well, at least not for another year.

Pat and Geno's are mediocre. As others have suggested, DiNics in Reading Terminal is the spot. Monk's is renowned for their tap list and regularly have rarities available. If you like cocktails and eccentricity, check out Hop Sing Laundromat. If you can do workout the weird, Franklin Mortgage and Finance is your best option.

FYI, that restaurant is also at Cedar Point.

In time, I believe he will also best Henry Cejudo's success in the octagon. Regardless if he wants more Olympic gold or UFC gold, I'm a fan.

Seems like I'm going to have an easier time watching him live on TV here in Canada, go figure. Not sure if it can be accessed from the states, but TSN is covering.

Goddamn! Rumble is ferocious.

Anyone else planning to attend 203 in Cleveland?

Great card so far, last 3 should also be electric.

Coldest was either last winter in Minny, as I managed to visit on the coldest night they had, or on a glacier in Iceland at elevation with whipping wind. Hottest either Melbourne around the time they had mad wildfires or the engine room of a nuclear sub after we lost A/C for an extended period of time.

Yep, been there and done that but I made it a point not to have the bastard in my party ever again. I'm always anxious when someone unexpectedly (or as a matter of reciprocation) picks up a tab because I want to be sure the tip is generous. In fact, I often will insist on picking up the tip if someone else is paying the bill.

Regarding number 1 - lump sum at the end? I typically will throw down $5 every morning after a night's stay for routine service. I'll up it if they do something extra like turn my towel into a piece of art, leave extra coffee, or whatever.

I almost always stay at the Springhill Suites, less than 1.5 miles from the Shoe. There are a surprising number of spots to eat / drink a short walk from that hotel. But I typically stroll over to the Short North area to inflict maximum damage to myself.

I mean, that's just crazy talk. Deep dish sucks, so you can have the Chicago comparison. But compared to NY (especially Brooklyn), it's not even a sensible debate. I grew up eating pizza in Ohio, and I've had pizza in Columbus in the last couple of years when in town for a game. When drunk and hungry, it's just fine. I mean, I'm not choking it down; it's perfectly ok. NY is an entirely different animal. I go out of my way to have pizza in NY; it's fucking delicious.
