    looks like now that the season in going to happen, myself and a few friends will be doing a packer game in green bay. i'll be staying 2 nights in chicago and 2 nights in green bay. want to spend a few hours in the green bay hall of fame and finally do a nfl tail gaiting party in the best nfl town. already have a hotel booked and that was a job in itself

    question: would like to do some professional sports or ncaa games in the area. thought of seeing Notre Dame on saturday night but just to far away

    can anyone recommend any games in area for thursday, friday and saturday ( sept 29th - oct 1st )

    thanks in advance

    Well you could go see the badgers play in Madison..camp randel is AMAZING also they are playing the 20th ranked Nebraska team so it should be a good one. It's on oct 1 at 8 pm. If u want a party madtown is nuts. Madison is like 2 1/2 hours away from good ole geebs. Pretty much only thing I can think of. But just staying in gb going to the bars and putzing around town will be an experience in it's self. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me.

    Saturday night 8pm 3 hours away in Madison, Camp Randall and the Bucky Badgers host Nebraska in their 1st ever Big10 game.

    Milwaukee Brewers 2 hours away may be hosting 1st round of the playoffs that weekend.

    Lingerie football at the Resch Center across the street from Lambeau Field on the 30th.

    I don't have the D-3 schedule at the moment but the closest schools to GB are Oshkosh and Stevens Point and are an hour or so away.

    Typically in this part of Wisconsin we just start drinking on Thurs and if the Packers win we don't stop until Thurs. If they lose, we don't stop.

    St. Norbert College is a NCAA Division 3 university that plays football every Saturday right here in Green Bay!!! They just built a very nice new stadium in De Pere. Definitely worth checking out.

    Do you mind sharing info on where you got your tickets at? The cheapest I can find are $180-200/ticket.

    We pay something like $69/ticket (regular price)... it might have been $74/ticket this past season. That's sitting about as high as you can get in the stadium. I would think regular price for your seats would be twice that.

    what a week. finally got our trip to greenbay completed and 2 things happened. i got a email from a travel company that does packer trips and they will give me 2 tickets + 2 nights hotel for a great price. the seats are right in the center around 50-yard line and the hotel is 2 blocks from lambeau. i sucked this deal up quickly. hated to cancle the tickets & other hotel i had reserved but couldn't resist the deal. so now i'm in walking distance to all the weekend parties.

    then the same day my company emails me and offers me a 1-year salary to retire early. sucked that up as well

    so looking forward to the trip to green bay

    Have you decided or still thinking about attending any other sporting events in the area?

    Sometimes local colleges and even high schools put on good games.
    You can't beat the price and they have the home town feel.

    Yeah, just don't go to a game where my high school is playing. :lol: Green Bay West hasn't won a game in what feels like years. GB East has a home game that weekend and they play at the old City Stadium, where the Packers used to play. Ashwaubenon plays Bay Port that weekend as well, and both those teams are good. The game is at Ashwaubenon High School, which is just a few blocks from Lambeau.
