09/09/17 - Cincinnati Bearcats @ Michigan Wolverines

Posted on


 Our first road trip of the season takes us to Ann Arbor to face Coach Fickell's old foe.  In Cincinnati, we don't X out the "M"s before we face Michigan, but just like our nutty neighbors to the northeast, we'd love to go into the Big House with enough swagger that their coach will need to change his khakis.  Either way, we're going to have an amazing tailgate and will cheer our boys on the way we always do!



Hotel info:

Given Ann Arbor's status as a big time college town, you can expect hotels in the area to sell out quickly.  As of February 16, 2017, we have a couple of rooms booked at the Hampton Inn Ann Arbor-North for about $200/night (1 room has 1 king for $208/night, the other has 2 queens for $180/night).  This hotel is approximately 5 miles from Michigan Stadium (~14 minute drive).  We'll be staying Friday & Saturday nights.


If you're making the trip, we encourage lining up lodging ASAP to avoid having to make a longer trip before/after the game on Saturday.



The Night Before:


We will be arriving in Ann Arbor by early evening on Friday, 9/8.  We encourage all Bearcats fans to join us, along with our friends from The Den, at Conor O'Neills Ann Arbor (318 S Main Street) from 8pm-?.  More info on Facebook



UC Alumni Association Event:


Saturday, 9/9 from 9am - 11:30am at Hole #6 at the Ann Arbor Golf and Outing Club.  Adults: $35 / Kids 12 & older: $20.  Includes buffet and one drink ticket + available cash bar.  We intend to setup our tailgate at close as possible to this event.  Full details at the UCAA site.



CATS Tailgate info: 



What:  Cincinnati Bearcats @ Michigan Wolverines.



When:  Saturday, September 9 12pm EST (ABC/ESPN).  Lot opens at 7:30am - we intend to be in line and ready to go as soon as the gates open and should be setup shortly after 8am.



Where:  We will be tailgating at the Ann Arbor Golf & Outing Club (the same location as the official UC tailgate).  Cost to park in this lot is $50/car (+ $7.25 convenience fee) - cost per vehicle and trailer is $150 (+ fees).  There are 1500 available parking spots, so it's recommended that you purchase in advance (ours is purchased as of 08/08/17).  


The UC Alumni Association tailgate will be at Hole #6.  We've been told that if we enter on Main Street that we should be able to park nearby.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Lot opens at 7:30am and spot saving is not allowed.  We will recommend that you be in line and ready to go at 7am if you want to tailgate near/with us (or just park wherever you want and walk to us)
  • No charcoal grills, fire pits, or deep fryers permitted.
  • Motorhomes, buses, large trucks, and camper trailers not permitted.
  • Lot closes 2 hours after the game ends.  
  • Full details available at the Ann Arbor Golf and Outing Club site



Who:  All are welcome!  Much like our tailgates, this is a "community" style tailgate - BYOB.  We always have extra food, but plan accordingly if you intend to eat.  Most importantly, come prepared to have fun!  You're welcome to contribute - generally, money in our donation box, ice, and/or community beer are the best - not required, but certainly appreciated.
