Indy Tailgating Thread

I figured we should consolidate this part for Sunday here, since it will not be easy to coordinate much once people get to Indy.

I know Max mentioned about piggybacking on the back of the bus trip tailgate, which could be, if there are no other options, the way to go. From the other thread that was $25 for food/drink, but I do not know if that includes alcohol (MAX, please confirm, otherwise you'll get angry jet fans on Sunday!)

If anyone else has a JETS tailgate already planned or more details about tailgating and times, just throw it in this thread and we can work from there.

Let's do what we can to get a big group together for this big game.

I'm staying at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown. This makes it for no need to get a car and could walk the half mile to Lucas Oil Stadium.

For anyone who is staying longer there is a "Devour Downtown" food festival starting on Monday, which is the equivalent of NYC restaurant week.

Info for that can be found here: http://www.devourdowntown.org/

almost decided to go to indy but couldnt find anyone to go with... my cuz is a colts fan and its to much money from dc to indy... but anyway i been to indy and the nightlife is pretty good

one place you must go to is the broad ripple village...this is like the best party spot in indy...it about a 10 min ride north of downtown and its worth it ...just go out there as a group!

we were planning on bringing a smaller version of our ususal setup. grill,cooler,tables,chairs. does anyone know if there are lots?, we've only been to newengland and buffalo before, where they have a standard tailgateing scene. also if there is any other info on that $25 tailgate party that sounds awesome, we'll bring our own booze.

:cheers:

ps. where the local indianapolis JETS bar?

Do you really think there is a Jets bar in Indy?? Let me assure you there isnt one but you will find Jets fans everywhere this week.

As far as going to Broad Ripple, I disagree, downtown will be the place to be this weekend. Besides, BR is a younger crowd so unless you are under 30, you more likely wont like it. The bars are all very small and nothing gets going there until at least 10pm.

any recommendations for downtown Indygirl?

Depends, do you want live music, dancing, pool? The slippery noodle is good for food and music if you like blues. Jillians is huge with lots to do and decent food too. Ike and Jonsys is fun if you like to dance. Nicky Blaines if you like Martinis and a good cigar.

Champions sports bar, lots of TV.s etc...

One of my favorite places, especially in the summer is the rathskeller, they will have live music for sure. Good german food and beer.

The great thing about downtown is that its very compact and everything is easy to walk to and get around.

What if you want to meet a nice girl from Indy from 25-30 years of age? :D

Under 30 means young girls. I know where I will be Saturday night. Party doesnt start till 10PM anyways!

Lots of young drunk girls for sure...the crowd is mostly under the age of 25. If you do go, all the clubs will be charging a cover so that kinda takes away from the bar hopping. Try Landsharks if you make it there.

If you are a race fan, I would go to the Indy 500 museum. I think its going to be nice here on saturday so they may be offering a lap around the track, its in a van but its still something to see.

There are several other museums, if you are into that, with a couple of them being downtown.

There should be a street party downtown on saturday on jackson street. I will keep you all posted on what I hear is going on.

BTW, there is a bar in Fishers, called the Blue Crew complete with a big blue colts bus in the parking lot.

Yes, I am a Jets fan, but of course, I am a Colts fan too, so regardless of the outcome on sunday I will be happy.

There isnt a lot to do in Indy during the winter months but the 500 speedway museum is something to see.

Also, dont forget that you cant buy alcohol here on sunday so stock up on saturday.

Oh, you will be fine regardless of where you go...remember this is the land of hoosier hospitality.

There was a jets fan that went downtown this week in his jets jersey trying to provoke the colts fans and couldnt get a rise out of anyone.

what about restaurants, love a good steak

I heard St. Elmos downtown has UNREAL steak. Upscale, kind of pricey but well worth it based on what I heard. It's a well known place even outside of Indy.

Supposedly on a Sat night before gameday you will catch some players, coaches, ect in there.

Yes, its very good, you have to try their shrimp ****tail, the ****tail sauce they serve is awesome.

There is also a Mortons steakhouse downtown and a Ruth's Chris.
