last time I checked, routes servicing campus, the "Student Union" parking garage, and the locally deemed "student ghetto" are for students, not for Fraternity mom's and dad's to come relive the "glory days" (get wasted drunk in a college town again). I doubt this will attract many students, who mostly drink beer too cheap for the oread to serve, in free venues where they have room to move and can play lawn games, while they sell the parking places the oread's patrons haven't stolen yet.

I'm just hoping this city is enough of a destination to support two big upscale hotels like the Oread and the Eldridge.

It's already impossible to drive around up there, much less park/walk/be safe. Allowing this will not bode well for businesses and residences in the area that are sure to get trashed by wasted students and adults.

Yea sounds like another Aggieville type of atmosphere. I think it will be a mess if they allow it.

Why is this poll still on here? It has been decided. So, is there tail at this event or how does that work? Tailgating sounds scary.

This town is just so noted for it's alcohol consumption. The last thing we need is institutionally condoning it's use.

Of course, K-State is too. Been to Aggieville following games. Bad. Bad.

Football games are disruptive enough without the hotel promoting tailgating, which will make the disruption even worse.

Football game days were a pain back in the '60s & '70s before tailgating got to be the big deal it is today. Now they are much, much worse.

I, for one would be happy if they moved the entire season to Arrowhead.

not unless they are willing to make it worth everybody's while. if they want to front some cash on this one, together with a concrete plan for providing ingress/egress for those who live in the neighborhood, then it could perhaps be a win/win for the city...a little extra $$ flowing in would not be a bad thing for Lawrence. But why should this business get something for nothing, when inconvenience, risk, clean-up, etc., all have costs?

"Now you know where your voters stand"?

You familiar with the concept of representativeness? A handful of bitter, crusty, crumudgeony haters hardly reflect the electorate of Lawrence.

Doesn't matter where the "voters" stand only the developers and "good ol' boys." This is, after all, Lawrence, KS.....
