Penn State v northwestern; Oktoberfest and Homecoming 2014

It's homecoming this week and we'll be tailgating in the RV lots. The RV crew arrives on Thursday and will be parking in the overnight lots. You can check the Facebook page for any updates.

12pm kickoff means tailgating before and after the game.


Penn State v UMass; life's a beach, and then you watch football.

Penn State’s electrifying win over old friend (or foe) Rutgers this past week and the fading summer weather has made us nostalgic for days gone by...

So, for the last weekend of Summer we’ll be hosting a good old fashioned clam bake! complete with clams (really?), shrimps, corn, potatoes and grilled garlic bread for dipping! We’re mixing it up a little by serving our smoked sausage (read: kielbasa) on the side. Other goodies we plan to have include: pancake breakfast bites with amaretto syrup (yes, you read that correctly); corned beef sandwiches; meatballs; cheddary bay biscuits; coleslaw; cranberry scones; Boston cream pie bites; and, Toll House cookie bars along with a variety of other sweets and snacks.

Obviously, one of our inspirations for our theme this week was PSU’s opponent this week, another blast from the past (albeit in basketball), the University of Massachusetts. UMass suffered a tough loss against Vanderbilt last week, so the Lions need to be ready for an able team that will be looking for the upset.  The Minutemen wear uniform of maroon and white - which allows for a little more game day garb freedom.

Kick-off (somewhat surprisingly) is at 4pm (BTN) so the parking lots will open at 8am. We’ll be in the Green (West/Press Box side) Lot - once again, flying the Scottish (national? we’ll see) flag; please contact us if you need more specific directions. 

The current forecast “pleasant with a full day of sunshine,” high of 67F (low 55F), so clearly we need to pack the rain gear.

As always, all are welcome and food/beverage contributions are appreciated but not required.
