Tips for Green Bay Visitors.

Quote:
Now that football season is here once again, the forums are full of questions from first time visitors to the Frozen Tundra, asking about tips and restaurants for their pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Well, instead of cutting and pasting this stuff year after year, I have decided to just post the stuff here, and then I can repost the link when people inquire. Thank you. NOTE: Some of this stuff might be dated, as I haven't lived in Green Bay for a few years.

1: Parking for games at Lambeau Field: Park on the back streets. There is an area across the street from Lombardi Ave. You can pay to park on peoples lawns, but if you get there early enough, you can get a spot on the street. Then you walk west a little bit on Shadow lane and there is a catwalk cutting through to Lombardi. You can cross to the stadium there. If you know someone in town, have them drop you off on Shadow Lane, then you can meet them back there after the game. You can really miss out on the traffic jam with those back roads. Go down Spence St to get to and from Shadow Lane. Remember, get there early! There's plenty to do in the Atrium. Check out the Packers Pro Shop! Google maps.

2: Here are some good restaurants.
-Krolls has good hamburgers and malts. They toast the bun and put butter on the burgers. There is one across Ridge Road from the Stadium. It will probably be crowded. As with everything, get there early. Or you can go to the one on the East side. It's on Main St. near Deckner.
-Cafe Espresso, on Washington on the east side. Most beautiful waitresses around.
-Maria's has the best Mexican food anywhere. I think it's on Broadway and Walnut. Way better than Los Banditos. Cheaper and more authentic, although I'm not sure if they serve alcohol.
-Kavarna is a coffee shop on the west side, on Broadway. They also have food. This place is popular with people who like young gay men.
-Hinterland Brewery is pretty good, but it's expensive. Excessively so, to keep the riff raff (such as myself) out. What's the place across the street from there that's the old railway building? That's a restuarant too now I guess. Titletown Brewery? Supposed to be pretty good. Those are on Walnut or Main on the west side, right down by the river. Titletown has that old football statue that used to be at the Packer Hall of Fame.
-Homgren Way has alot of cool sports bars. Also Brett Favre's Steakhouse is there. There's food, memorabilia stores, stuff like that. Go a couple blocks east from the stadium on Lombardi Ave.
-Fuzzy's, owned by Fuzzy Thurston. He might be there. It's on W. Mason St. Nice place.
-Victoria's on Riverside Dr, out by the University. Pretty good Italian.
-My old hangout was Country Express, which is a truck stop off hwy 172 and I think G in Bellevue. Good burgers and stuff, cool waitresses, their Italian food is slightly bland.
-Don't know what is there now, but there's probably a club at the former location of Nick Barnett's Club 56. Before that it was Za's and before that it was The Pitcher Show. It was like a restaurant that would serve beer but also show movies.
-Take your girlfriend to Sass, on Broadway!
-If you want pizza, try Sammy's. There's one on Oneida St, south of the Stadium. What's that pizza place on Bellevue on the east side? They had good pizza back in the day.

3: Iirc, on Saturdays, they give Stadium Tours. Pretty cool. The Packers Hall of Fame is across Oneida St. Check it out!

One forum member mentions the Stadium View Bar. That is a very popular locale.

Zero2Cool: Dom Capers, full defensive staff expected to return to Packers
uffda udfa: Peyton Manning in the movies: https://vimeo.com/21710095
Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
