Default OMG I need help

My wife and friends surprised me with game tickets (the Ravens game) and the flight and hotel, now I need some help from you guys


How is the Holiday Inn at Reliant? Is it awesome? I am pretty sure it is super close to the stadium correct? We are getting a rental car, but we plan on walking to the game if we can and partying then walking back to the hotel.

Our seats are in 607, are these good? I really want to be in a great atmosphere more than wanting to see every little detail on the field. Is this section great for screaming and high fiving?

I need to know whats up with tailgating!!!! I want to partake in the greatest tailgate experience on Earth, any suggestions?

We come in on Friday night, so we have all day Saturday to bum around, I want to hit up the Texans store in Reliant and then is there a shop or store that has little knick knack Texans stuff (for my man cave) and then what other things should we try to do on Saturday while we are there???

IM SO PUMPED FOR THIS

The Holiday Inn is very close, just a walk across the street. Not an "awesome" hotel, as it is a bit on the older side. But very nice. I would absolutely recommend it.

One warning, I had a friend staying there last year, and they talked her into using their shuttle bus to the game. The bus drove around the long way and dropped her off on the far side of the stadium

Then she has to walk all the way over to where we tailgate. Don't use the shuttle. Walk across the street. The Blue Crew tailgates in the corner of the Platinum lot, I am sure you would be welcome there. Just grab whatever you want to drink, there is plenty of cooler space.

Let me think about Sat a bit, I haven't had my coffee yet. Don't want to steer you wrong.

There will be approximately 8 screamers and 4 high-fivers in your area, but I recommend you switch to section 608 as they are known for their higher quality hugging after touchdowns.

Ha, no I say that because on another board a guy I know said he had season tickets up there and people were always telling him to sit down and were not very intense, I am VERY intense and will not have a voice come half time, so I do not want people telling me to sit down when we score or make a big play....


We like all kinds of food and places. We're just looking for any recommendations at all to be honest. We have no set mind set of what we would want to do. We want to get as much Texans stuff as we can since it is hard to get it in Wisconsin, but we also want to enjoy some of Houstons best.....Is it cool to see the space station or is that lame with no kids?

I will feel weird just walking up to people to tailgate but I will it you think its ok...

The 600's is called Gridiron, Texas and I think they have the most passionate (least corporate) fans at Reliant. I may be slightly biased (section 610).

The Bullpen gets a lot of hype, but I'm pretty sure they're on performance enhancing drugs. Just saying.

This is Houston, Texas. So just go up to about any tailgate, and you will be welcome. That's how we roll.

This is true but I will throw out one small caveat. Bring what you want to drink. For some reason folks will hand you $20 bucks of food without a question but if you assume you can nab beer some will think you a moocher. If you show up with even a six pack and run out they will be happy to resupply.

If you're drinking alcoholic beverages, right. I don't imbibe, so all I have to offer is water, gatorade, and diet soda. Which I'm happy to share.

amazing80, I've just walked up and introduced myself as "rickyb" from the Texans Talk MB. Works great. An invitation ahead of time is all the better. And it looks like you have those, too. You are going to have a GREAT TIME. I mean GREAT. Everyone is so dang cool.

As for Saturday... for food, I recommend: a) The Buffalo Grill for breakfast. Get the peppered bacon with whatever. b) For dinner, hit Pappas Steakhouse or Pappadeaux for cajun seafood, or Pappasitos for Mexican. The Steakhouse is pricey, but is phenomenal. Hit Shipley Donuts on Sunday morning before the tailgate.

Have fun!
Rick

I think the Galveston Pleasure Pier might be more fun, but Moody Gardens(Pyramid) is nice too.

(Note Galveston is about 45 minute drive south.)

Go to the south end of the stadium and walk into the platinum lot. Take your first right. About 2/3rd's down on your right will be Texans Chicks tailgate. Down at the very end of the aisle on both sides will be the Blue Crew where you can meet a bunch of folks from the MB. Just walk up and say I am amazing80 and you will be more than welcomed.

Give us some hints on the things you are interested in, types of foods, activities whatever and we can give you better advise.

Not too far from where you are staying is a great breakfast/brunch place - The Breakfast Klub. A whole lot better than room service or Denny's - Link

You are more than welcome for a free ride, free food, and free beverages. We have a nice set up, not as big and as elaborate as some of the others, but a nice time with great friend and family. I guess some people that blast me don't read posts like this one..........
