Anyone going to the Mississippi St game?
« Reply #20100 on: January 01, 2018, 11:46:05 am »

I was going to take my son to the Tennessee game but I was sick. I've decided to make the trip to Starkville so my son can see a game this season. Anyone else planning on making the trip? Anyone have recommendations on where to stay or eat?

I don’t ever stay in Starkville for what that’s worth.

Re: eating recommendations, how old is your son? Are you looking for a bar type of place, or is he younger?

I got a B&B in Starkville already and just got to town. My son is 10 so it can't be a bar but somewhere that serves drinks would be nice.  I talked to a few people and most recommend Two Brothers for a seat down type resturant and Oby's.

Little Dooey's is good so is Harvey's, and Cotton District Grill.  All are fine for kids your son's age.  Starkville actually has a decent number of local places.  Oby's is good too just a little out of the way as far as proximity to campus.  People there are very friendly as well.  More like good natured rivals much more welcoming than some other SEC fans.

Not sure how many folks will be at the game since school is still out but The Hump is a great place to watch a game.  I've been to about a dozen or so there over the years.  Can honestly say not a bad seat in the house.

Parking for OSU Game on Saturday
« Reply #20107 on: January 23, 2018, 11:15:09 am »

Would like to park west of the arena for a quick exit to I49 north. The basketball parking map online shows some lots a couple of blocks west of the arena which are listed as "public parking". For instance, 74B and 74C. Are these public parking and if so, what is the fee?

Otherwise, how is the availability and fee in yards near Eastern and Nettleship? The parking lot north of the stadium is a little too far to walk.

I always park in the open lot behind the EZ Mart that's on the corner of Razorback/MLK across from the stadium. It varies from $10-$20, but makes the exit from the game nice and quick.

Colorado State - Ft. Collins - Found this interesting
« Reply #20114 on: February 11, 2018, 09:59:45 pm »

“INTERESTING” - My brother-in-law moved from west of Denver to Ft. Collins, so my wife & I are flying out to see him and go with him, his wife & some other friends to the Arkansas vs Colorado State game this year on Sept 8th.  He called CSU to get tickets & they are $140 a piece.  I told him, I want to get visitor tix so we’d be sitting in God’s “TRUE & ANOINTED” section.  I called our ticket office and although season ticket packages are not out yet, the ticket office told me tix would probably only be $65 to $75 each for that game since it’s not considered a major opponent.  Since this is a new stadium as of last year being its first year, sounds like they are considering Arkansas being a major opponent & trying to really take advantage of the game with their fans.  Thought that was interesting.

140 does seem expensive for CSU though.

That new Colorado State stadium looks really cool.  Except for that 'gap' and all the wasted space on the north end.

Hammontrees is a nice little gourmet grilled cheese shop. It's super popular.
For burgers, feltners is a good bet.
A taste of Thai was always my favorite sport for Thai food. It's Soo good.
Penguin Ed's was my go to for BBQ
DAMGOOD pies is legit for pizza. Can't beat it.
Wanna good steak, go to Herman's
Tacos 4 life....let's just say is the best tacos you'll ever eat.

Don't eat at catfish hole, greenhouse grill, or cafe rue Orleans. They are overpriced and over hyped.

Noodles is really good Italian food. Not great but best in the area.

If you have time, go to Rogers and eat at chuys. It's the best Mexican food in the area.

Opinions on where to eat will vary as much as having E.I. set the batting order. It's all up to one's taste, budget, and time willing to wait. It depends on what you are looking for, and the meal you are eating. One would surmise you are eating after the basketball game, so gives us some details, like any preference in price or cuisine.

Slim's ain't local anymore, no more than WM is local.
