    Anyone else going?

    I have my hotel booked (Intercontinental) and just purchased my tickets from stub hub. Last year, we rocked New Orleans from the pregame fun, to the St. Arnold tailgate, and more. Texans fans were everywhere. I hope more will come this year.

Looking for other fans to pregame or tailgate with. Leaving Friday morning, this will be my wife and my buddies GF's first trip to NO.

    I dunno............. I think JB is "quarterbacking" this year's trip for DRS, Gibbs, Ronny, (and hopefully Corrosion) and two dear friends from up in Shreveport. Not to mention that I'm sure Joe will make it (Dude, no faceplants in front of the cemetary please)..

    All that said, I have to talk to Mitch about hooking up with Glen (A Saints fan that took really good care of us last year) to see if he would be willing to do the same this year.....


    As an aside... EFF "The Dungeon"!!! AND I totally remember Joe Texan doing a faceplant in front of the cemetary!!

    #NOLA Good Times!!!!

    Myself and 3 buddies will be heading to that game. We arranged a suite at the Rennassiance by Marriott. Tickets are section 127 row 3. Last year we wore battle red jerseys however since we all picked up new Nike jerseys today at camp I think we'll be wearing those. We plan on leaving Friday as well.

    If folks have cars, I will invite you to a pal's bar. Da Pope's. I know that at some point on Friday night I will be there sipping on whiskey.

    BTW, we're thinking about it. Since it is a night game we would probably try to arrange the party actually on game day.

    About 80% chance we're going.

    I'm getting the 411 for Saturday - finding a good spot.

    I don't plan on much post game partying, too old, but we'll plan something :)

    Not sure what time we're leaving Sunday.

    If my friends Mitch and Vicki make it down from Shreveport, we don't need "a bar" to congregate. We'll need a place to meet up to where Mitch can find bar owner "Glen" (forget the name of his bar in the quarter), but he led us from his place to every cool bar between his and the Superdome. Poor guy is a Saints fan, but led 20 Texans fans through the quarter like the Pied Piper.

    It was freakin' awesome!!

    Although, I'm not sure if I should blame Glen or not for "The Dungeon" after the game simply because, I don't remember. Somehow though, I still remember Joe's faceplant near the cemetary.
