    My buddy and I, after being life long Packers fans stuck in the state of Pennsylvania, are finally making it out to Lambeau this week to watch us crush the Bears and and rightfully claim our spot in the playoffs. Im honestly so excited Ive barley slept this week. The game got moved to 4:15 so there's plenty of time before and after to kill. I was just curious as to what you guys would suggest checking out? Bars, restaurants, shops, were honestly trying to hit up anything and everything thats green and gold (especially bars).

    You'll get TON's of suggestions from this site, I did when I made my very first trek to the land of Lambeau!
    I was a lot more relaxed about my game because we were playing the Cowboys. You'll have the time of your life!

    If you want to read about my trip, I documented it starting 42 days out..My Lambeau Pilgrimage – M. Banks | Packers Passion

    Here is a list that a Packer friend sent me:

    1. Take the Lambeau Field Tour (seems cheesey, but, it’s not)
    2. Check out the nearby restaurants – including the Favre Steakhouse
    3. Everyone stops at the Stadium View for some awesome cheesecurds
    4. There is a Jersey Store right nearby – hope you saved your fiat cash (LOL)
    5. Fuzzy’s place is over on the other side of the field from Stadium View (and Scalper’s Alley)
    6. Make sure to check out if there will be any events where some Players are attending the game – like they did for us in 2004. I have a large signature board with Willie Davis, Carroll Dale, and over two dozen other’s signatures now framed over my fireplace – intention is to get as many of the other Greats to sign it before they’re gone, as well. The only one I missed was Bart Starr as they had him in a separate area because (as usual) he’s the biggest draw there is. But, I got to see him give a speech down here in May 2006 and now he has a IPB Club Tee shirt to remember our meeting. He later sent back an autographed photo, all framed – now hanging in its proper place in my (Loft) Shrine.
    7. Obviously, having lunch at Curly’s just inside the Atrium – is a must. There’s also a newly renovated house right across the street from the PackerProShop which will be packed on Game Day – you might want to check that out, if you have time.
    8. I ran into an old couple in 2004, selling four boxes of Packer Stuff (each for a $1) and came back with some prize items for my Shrine – so, keep yer eyes out.
    9. Our last stay at Green Bay, was at the TUNDRA LODGE – and well worth it.
    10. Last, but not least – ? – it’s the fans that make the trip worth it, the most. When you hit town, you can almost feel it crossing the city line. GAME DAY is where it goes over the top. The Tailgating is definitely a must-do. Checking out the old cars dressed up in Packer paint, ..on to just going up and down the lanes and seeing all the fans keeping with tradition and taking the time to just chat with them or throw a football around.

    GO to Fuzzys! GO away (north) from the stadium on Oneida...take a left on Mason (the busy street) look for Fuzzys on the left up the road a bit (look for a big green football shaped sign). Lynn Dicky's been there the last 2 times I was there....Obviously Fuzzy was too.

    and be on the look out for Packer plates the start with GBP...They're people on the team. Coaches or players. You'll see a lot of Packer plates (WI issues a bunch) but the ones to look for are mentioned above. I almost got run over by Grady Jackson when I was living up there... :)

    "2. Check out the nearby restaurants – including the Favre Steakhouse"

    yeah, the meat is old and meals are frequently served to the wrong people--all in honor of the namesake.

    just kidding--I haven't been in there for years, but the name makes me lose my appetite.

    Have a blast dude! Atmosphere around Lambeau on gameday is indescribable! The best part is just meeting people from all over. Everyone is just like family.
