Long time lurker, posting for the first time to ask your advice.
I'm returning to IC this weekend for my first game in years, after loyally watching and screaming at TVs here in New York for many years. I'm bringing along my parents (and 2 or 3 assorted others) for their 1st Iowa game ever. (What can I say? While I was in school I preferred to sit in the student section, drink, and generally make an ass out of myself...)
I want to do their first Hawkeye Nation experience right. We're not likely to get there early enough to set up our own tailgate, unfortunately, given the travel involved. Can anyone recommend sponsored tailgates we could join / pay entry to / crash if we arrive 11-12ish? As the current forecast calls for rain, any ideas for back up plans? Grateful for any suggestions.
