Then turning the umbrella upside down and mixing up the biggest whiskey & coke mixer of all time.

I think we are leaving Omaha around 7:30am.  Not sure where we will go first but I am sure we will end up watching at Barry's.  You know, the place that rakes in cash and is totally packed on game day but for some reason the old owners cried about how hard it was to turn a profit at that place.

Will be in Lot #20 at Haymarket Park in the early AM, going to the game.  Not much tailgating this weekend with the early kick-off

How is Lot 20 in terms of tailgating?

I have been in Lot #20 for about 12 years now.  It is a great place to set up and we have met a lot of great people who we now set up by every season. You get to use the restrooms inside Haymarket Park, which is really nice too.  About a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium.  We get spots along the edge, where there is grass so we have plenty of room.  Not every spot is on grass or is great, but it depends on what you want to do.  It is a great scene and not as packed as under the overpass or the Journal Star lot or the post office lot.  You are not right on top of other people there.

No, you have to buy the entire season, in advance, from the UNL ticket office.  They control the lot.  Sometimes, they do sell spots for lot #21, the north side of Haymarket, last year they were $30 or $35.  But, the new indoor ice rink does sell spots and sometimes you can get into lot #20 too, depends on the game.

At the campground at the lake.  Hoping the rain stays away so I can stream the game outside.  It’s still tbd on what cut(s) of meat will be on the smoker.

With our big plans for the CU game on Sep. 7 and a 10:00 kickoff in Denver, it will be a low-key game day at our house.  I will watch the game, my son will probably be hanging out on the couch with me.  It's supposed to be great weather on Saturday, so we may hit the links after the game.
