Top 10 College Places to Pre-Game

10. Your Parents’ Crib

All the amenities of home … except you’re actually home. Raid the rents’ liquor cabinet and invite your friends. This slides up at least four more slots if they’re gone for the weekend on a romantic getaway.

9. The Booster Bus

Hey, maybe you’re one of the lucky ducks who get invited to deviously plan the next great funding scam! If not, I hear the booze is top-shelf, and the fans are passionate. Just like at a Kings of Leon concert!

8. The Dorms

If you’re desperate, and quiet, the dorms are tremendous place to chillax and whet your whistle. Just watch out for those pesky RA’s!

7. The Townie Bar

Sometimes, the best place to escape the doldrums of campus is to get off-campus. Drink with the true, seasoned fans, who still clutch their class of 1978 ring since their intense passion for State precludes them from loving a spouse completely.

6. The Frat House

Perhaps you don’t mind waiting 12 minutes for a beer? With the quality of women who frequent these palatial establishments, and the vibrancy and color of the party guests and housemates, how can you not get pumped for an epic tilt against Southwest Lousiana Tech?

5. The Watering Hole

Hitting up college bars is a crucial part of life, whether you’re a hip young social butterfly or a die-hard fan well past the expiration date. The madness often spills out into the street. It makes every Saturday Mardi Gras!

4. The Luxury Box

Too classy for the common folk? Get your drank on aristocratically and camp out in a luxurious, sound-proof suite hours before kickoff. Enjoy watching CNBC and networking with enough upper-crust to land you a VP of Finance job fresh out of school.

3. The Academic Quad

If you’re discrete, there’s always a psuedo-party atmosphere going on right outside the classrooms. Frisbee, flag football, flasks and floozies. Everyone’s a neighbor; no one is a stranger.

2. Your Flop House

Party over at my place! Bring your friends together and order up some cases. Fire up your grill and crank the Lil’ Weezy to 11. Make the last stop on the pilgrimage before the Big House, your house.

1. The Stadium Parking Lot

The food, the beer, the music, the girls, the atmosphere in the shadow of the center of the sports universe for three hours. Really, if you’re doing it anywhere else – you’re just a contrarian.
