    Hello everyone! I am coming into Green Bay for my first game all the way from the streets of Manhattan. So I have heard that we must come with seat cushions and cardboard for under our feet. Is there anything else? What are some typical rookie mistakes?

    Also, I will be spending Saturday in and around Green Bay. Any suggestions on what to see and where to eat?

    Thanks so much!

    Jim

    I really like the union hotel in DePere. Its where Lombardi went after games for a steak and a drink. It hasnt changed much since Vince last stepped in the doors.

    Hit up the bars around Lambeau but really other than that not a whole lot going on in GB.

    Plan on just renting the seat cushions at the stadium. Less security hassle. Toe warmers, hand warmers, um... I think there are quite a few posts on this already.

    Yeah, get your hand and toe warmers. You can find them anywhere (Shopko, Fleet Farm...). The last Packers/Giants game I was at (Dec 26, 2010) it was so cold our blanket froze to the seat.

    Have fun! I was in NYC twice last year and we saw Lombardi during the first visit. It surprised me how many Giants fans were in the theatre.
