    Hey!

    Me, My Dad & Bro in Law will be making the trip from the UK in November for the Bears game! tickets arrived yesterday (Block 113, Row 26, any good?) Cannot Wait!

    Staying at the Super 8 on Oneida, looks failry close to everything, is this an ok location? The rate we got was superb. We'll have a car so getting about won't be a problem. Although are Taxis easy to get in GB?

    I can search the other threads for recommendations on Bars/restaraunts etc... but anything new anyone would like to add? maybe list the top 5 bars/restaraunts we shouldnt miss? we'll be in GB for 3 nights (1 is game night) so fee like we'll have plenty of time.

    Should we pre-book some tailgate tickets or just go with the flow when we're there?

    Is there decent nightlife in GB, not neccesarily Football related, perhaps more in the centre of GB? The breweries look good fun, we'll definitely head there.

    Cheers for any help!

    Jimbo

    I'm making the 4000 mile trip too pal so I'll see you there. I'm staying behind brett Favres steakhouse, which is where most of the nightlife seems to be. Excited to see the stadium now the renovations are complete. I'm traveling solo, will meet folk in the bars and talk football!

    This thread was about my visit to last seasons Bears game (the 55-14 demolition) so I won't be making the trip this season, although I'd love to but I'm getting married in October so this year is a no-no.

    If you want any tips or advice about Green Bay or whatever then let me know

    As this thread has been resurrected, i'll jump in and ask a question of your experiences Jimbo, as I'll be popping out to GB for the Rams game later in the year.

    What did you do regarding your Tailgate tickets?
    Did you find a good bar / restaurant you'd recommend for grabbing some food after the game?

    Cheers

    Hi HullChief.
    Went to a Monday night packers game last year.
    The tailgate I went to was at the Resche Centre, think it was $30 pay on the day and that was really good. I heard the one at Brett Favres steakhouse was a good one too.
    Went in a few bars over the weekend and went to Anduzzis (showed all NFL games on multiple TV's) and good bar food, the stadium view was also really good as was the Distillery. Heard good reports about Krolls West too.
    If you get chance well worth going on the stadium tour.
    Going to the Cowboys game in December, can't wait !
    Hope this helps

    Cheers, Yeah plan on a stadium tour the day before the game, a look around the HoF and some food at the new bar. Was just wondering where most fans go after the game, but i guess walking into any of the nearby bars i'd see plenty of familiar shirts.

    Make sure you drive on the right side of the road. But seriously this will be the trip of a lifetime. Not much night life goes on in GB. Couldn't hurt to get tix for tailgating. There's a tent in Lambeau parking lot that has tailgating every week. I think it opens like 3 hrs before game time

    Used to try and get a table at curlys after games to eat and wait out the crowd. They did a post game show there over the radio too.

    Now it's called 1919 kitchen and tap.

    Not sure if still open at game time and if post game radio show happens

    Bretts tailgate is ok...nothing really special.

    Most tailgates have the standard burgers, brats, hot dogs, beer.

    Bretts is a father walk than the one at the resche center


    I will give this advice. Don't drink to much game day. You do t want to miss all that game day experience by running to toilet all the time.
    ..Or being drunk where you forget some parts of the day

    Good advice in the last sentence from longtimefan.

    Had a fair few beers last year and memory of the game is a little hazy in places! Still it's a good excuse for this years trip :)
