Are you ready to tailgate? Are you ready for Oktoberfest 2009?
Penn State hits the field this weekend against the iowa hawkeyes in their one night game of the season. Kick off is at 8pm (EST) and the word is out to friend and foe alike that we'll be turning Beaver Stadium into the WHITEHOUSE! (ie, we're not allowed to use the term that reminds us of a snow storm) The hawkeyes wear gold (yellow) and black - no Steeler garb this week friends, and be mindful of your jewelry and shoe choices.
The ESPN Game Day crew will be broadcasting from Beaver Stadium - coverage begins at 10am - and the game will be shown on ABC. The current forecast is cloudy with a chance of rain in the evening.
We will be tailgating, all day long. Lots open at 8am - our current plan is to get to the stadium between 9-10am. But don't worry, it's okay, sit down, because we know exactly where we'll be parking - in the PINK lots*, next to the North end of the stadium (the Park Ave side). Please email or call for exact directions - and/or keep a look out for our PSU and Bavarain (blue and white checkered) flags!
We'll be serving some of our favorite German cuisine - including (but not limited to) beer brats, pork and sauerkraut, pierogies, kielbasa (remember, part of Poland used to be Germany), German potatoes, spice cake, and much, much more.
All are welcome! We'll have plenty of food, but if there is a particular food item or beverage** that you just have to have, please bring it along.
*be aware that we have purchased these passes from a third party (we haven't sold out, again, yet) - and we have every hope that they are legitimate passes - if we have any problems with the spots we will do our best to get in contact with you. Our alternative location will be lots 12-13.
**no glass bottles in grass lots still applies to Pink parking.
