Putting my forum place holder up already :)
Will be attending the Dallas game driving up from San Antonio Sunday morning. Who else is attending and what we doing before the game?

My wife and I are driving in from San Angelo. I contacted a vendor that has packages deals. I have never done that before. But basically he is going to get us a hotel for two nights, shuttle to and from the game, a tailgate party all you can eat BBQ and all you can drink (soda beer wine water). the tail gate starts three hours before the game. I haven't committed to this guy yet but i like the idea of not having to drive there and back and the fact of just being around a lot of Steelers fans. Have you heard of anything else out there that is like this. Oh this package is $240 per person. I have no idea if that deal is bad or great.

What info do you have on the vendor? A small group of us are coming to Dallas, got the airfare but no hotel or game tickets yet? Any help of where to stay from anybody would be helpful.

Just sent the Vendor an e-mail. Since I last posted we booked a hotel (Sheraton) in downtown Dallas. Bad thing is can't find any bars in the area that run shuttles to the game. Guess we should have stayed in FT.W or Arlington.

I emailed them to no response asking solely about the tailgate party since I have everything else already booked. If its a fair price I might jump on it and if not I will hopefully find some fellow fans to party with. 26 more day wooohooooo!

Im staying at the motel 6 down the road from the stadium i believe the 2 bed room i got was like 65 bucks,
we either plan to walk down to the stadium, take a taxi or hop a ride with other fans that are staying there. its about a mile and a half walk

Hey Tx777, this is Dave from last year's Houston tailgate. I'm headed to Big D with the same crew as last year so let's meet up and get a tailgate goin. I see some responses but nothing looks organized yet. Other folks want to tailgate?

I was thinking of parking here- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dallas-Cowboys-vs-Pittsburgh-Steelers-Stadium-Parking-W-Free-Shuttle-12-16-12-/251126864309

They have a free shuttle to get you in/out, pretty cheap, and a decent tailgate scene from what gather. I was thinking to at least start here, tailgate a couple hrs, then head in to the game. Thoughts?

Hey Dave,
Sounds like a great plan. My hotel is just a few miles from the lot. When you order let me know so I can also. For everything they offer it seems like a great deal

Hey yall not sure if yall are interested but that one guy that i talked about up there is offering a tailgate for $60 all you can eat all you can drink. He also said he still has some game packages with tickets as well.

Yeah, I went ahead and booked the MidSouth parking lot. Even if we decide to tailgate in one of the main lots we still needed a place to park and this is cheap and from what I can tell will make getting in/out of the stadium pretty easy.

Are you doing one of the pre-paid tailgates? I'm thinking about Bill Bate's tailgate for $50- mainly to have a bunch of folks to hang out with. But with a decent size group x $50 a person we can put together a damn good tailgate ourselves!

I have some friends coming from HOU that are willing to bring grill/cooler/chairs if folks are down to tailgate in the MidSouth lot with us! :

New to thisboard but an old, lifetime fan. Will be coming down from NW Arkansas with my fiancee to watch my beloved Steelers. Just looking for tailgating or even barhopping on Saturday night ideas.

Sorry Anthony, we are still debating the all-inclusive tailgate or grilling on our own at Midsouth. We have a Packers fan with us that wants to see his game during the tailgate...:banging:

I hope to have this squared away this afternoon before I jump on my flight but I will at least know by Saturday morning what exactly we are doing.

I've never been to Dallas so I can't speak to much. I'm staying Fri night in Big D and Sat/Sun in Ft. Worth. Sat night we are hitting up Billy Bob's honky tonk and maybe a rodeo (when in Rome...).

For Dallas I was told to check out the Uptown/McKinney area for a good selection of bars/restaurants. I'm probably heading there tonight when I get in.

Hope that helps a bit! :tt04:

We booked the all-inclusive tailgate- do a web search for Bill Bate's Ultimate Tailgate Party. $50 plus a $3 booking fee.

I hope to see a few others from Steeler Nation!

Go Steelers!
