Bump; now that we are a week out from the game. Just to see if there are any last minute suggestions that I could utilize.

If you are in to music, I recommend the Double Door Inn.  http://www.doubledoorinn.com/

A ton of history at this place, too bad it is closing after the first of the year...

If you need some fast food eat at a Cookout.  You can get a double burger, hushpuppies, quesadilla and a milkshake for around $6 with tax.  I would be insanely obese if we had one in NWA.
I know two people who have eaten at Cook Out (different locations and different times) and both got food poisoning.  My sample size is small, but it's enough to discourage me.

Food's not that good, but shakes are pretty delish. Lots of flavors, too.

If you know any veterans who want to go to the game, there is a website called Vettix.org and you can register (have to prove you are a veteran) they still have 600 tickets for the game. Im a Gator fan (I know.. relax) but I am going to the game because I live in Charlotte and gonna root for the SEC Razorbacks (even bought a shirt). I hate to see these tickets go to waste. BTW- they are free. My seats are in Sec 140 row 9 right by the end zone.

Goto Walmart. Go on tobacco tours.

Whatever you do, don't go into the ladies restroom.
Yes use the restroom for the gender listed on your birth certificate. I am out of NC now so I do not have to tolerate the backward thinking. It's sad when a state has to pass a law to keep men out of the girls restroom and vice versa.

I laugh at all you idiots who complain about Charlotte. You could be in super McGehee aka Memphis or super ashdown Shreveport for a bowl game. North Carolina is a pretty state and you can find stuff to do. Nwa is slap full of hipster weird white folks. Stay in Asheville a few days then drive over to the game. About the same demographic and has plenty of "hip" breweries and things to do. Plus you'll feel at home in the applachians. You guys won't have to tuck your purses there when you see a "minority".

I got some tickets through friends in Tulsa, but I think your best bet is just the OSU ticket site.  Tickets are $10 each, shockingly.  Hog fans are sitting all over the place.. no designated section other than the seats right behind bench that are sold.

I live in the Tulsa area but unfortunately will be out of town that weekend.  Arkansas has a lot of alumni in Oklahoma but gets absolutely zero coverage or merchandise sold here (I think the ou and osu guys are afraid to feed the beast that is Arkansas sports).  Anyways, this is a good opportunity for Arkansas to show their presence in this awful state.

Make sure you follow @TulsaHogs on Twitter and like the Greater Tulsa Razorback Club on Facebook for event info, etc.  It's a nice way to connect.

Tough to beat cobbler, especially when it's done right. 

Cobblers, fried pies and grits.  Three things God blessed Southerners with that Yankees will just never understand or appreciate.

That all depends on what you want to spend and what you like to do when the games are over. Do you want to walk everywhere or are you willing to drive and park and save a little? Nashville is a great city. Lot's of hotels and restaurants downtown but some really nice places are in the suburbs.

I'm don't think there's a trolley system, but the entertainment is mostly on Broadway and the arena is on Broadway about a 1/4 mile walk to everything. Restaurants are on Broadway, second street??,printers alley and near the Vandy campus which is about 2-2.5 miles from downtown. You are within a 2-10 minute uber ride from everything. I highly recommend Hattie B's for some amazing Nashville Hot Chicken and Desano's Pizza_ bring your own bottle of wine(rated top 10 pizza places in US). PM me if u got any other questions, I've been there atleast 10x and it's a great southern city.

2017 SEC WBB Tournament in Greenville
« Reply #17790 on: February 23, 2017, 01:05:44 pm »

https://twitter.com/SEC_Tammy/status/834799930501898242

Southeastern Conference Women’s Basketball Championship takes place March 1-5.

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament arrives on March 17 and 19.

For the evening and weekend games, parking should be readily available downtown and in the large city parking garage next to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The arena also is surrounded by several private parking lots.

On weekdays during the day, parking will be a challenge downtown, so the city and the arena have arranged for extra parking space in the expansive lot at Redemption Church on Haywood Road. Several shuttle buses, accommodating 56 passengers each, will transport basketball fans to and from the Redemption parking lot.

When I was in college I worked as valet st the Sheraton hotel downtown, and one year Tennessee and auburn's bball teams stayed in our hotel along with tons of their fans ...this was during the Bruce pearl era...I remember meeting Dane bradshaw's father...they looked exactly alike and he was a very nice guy

Point is that when those teams lost, their fans were literally throwing their remaining ticket books away or giving them away ...after Tennessee lost in their first game I was given 5 ticket books lol I was able to go with some friends to watch the hogs lose to Florida ..so hang out around losing teams fans lol

I haven't lived in Nashville since 2011 so I'm not sure what all has changed downtown, but my favorites were demos steakhouse, wild horse saloon was fun if you like country music and line dancing, jacks BBQ ...and you've got your normal Hard Rock Cafe, joes crab shark, bb kings ...and these are all within walking distance of Bridgestone

My son lives there and we have been going about every 2 months.  Lots of good places to eat in 12 South area.  Bar taco, Frothy Monkey, Burger Up.  And believe it or not, most of the bars/music venues on Broadway have pretty good food.  You should try Loveless Cafe one time too.  They serve Bkfast, lunch and dinner.  Good
southern type food. Also Biscuit Love for bkfast/lunch is good it is on/near 11th.  Sperry's in Belle Mead is good for steak/seafood.

If you don't have Hattie B's Chicken you should not have went to Nashville...  The cool thing about Nashville is there is live music usually all day on Music Row.  Go down to the GooGoo store in Music Row and try a fresh made GOO GOO Cluster.... Its amazing fresh!!!  Go to Puckets Grocery and Restaurant for an Amazing Breakfast! 

You may also want to try the pulled turkey sandwich at HOG HEAVEN!!!!

I was in Nashville a couple of weeks ago and our hosts took us to Sutler's Saloon for lunch. Good food, nice people, good service. I got the catfish tacos and liked them very well. A couple of others got really good looking salads. My buddy got a burger and a massive amount of fries.

If you don't like super-spicy food, you will want to avoid hot chicken.

If you don't like rough neighborhoods, you will want to avoid Hattie B's.
