Watch Party?

For those of us who are not fortunate to make to New Orleans (sooo jealous of all you able to go!) is there going to be watch parties around? I am up in NYC...i heard there is an alumni group up here.....so is there a watch party up here for the game?

I would call the alumni association.  I'm sure they can send out an e-mail to all the alumni in your area and find a bar to gather at to watch the game.

Peyton,

Get there EARLY, and dress warm, then add two more layers.  You have to "experience" the subway, at least once.  Also, if your up there in the crowd, I always used to keep my wallet in my front pocket, just incase.  Maybe I'm just paranoid about big crowds, but I would rather keep my money.  Most of all Have fun, there is lots to see up there during the holidays.

I forgot the whole point of this post, I am watching in Kissimmee/St. Could.  Not sure if it will be in a bar or someone's house, but anyone else in the area?

The official FAU Watch Party will take place at Duffy's Sports Grill on St. Andrews Boulevard in Boca Raton. Join fellow FAU Owl fans as they cheer on the team while enjoying free appetizers and drink specials during game time.  The FAU MacArthur Campus also will host a watch-party at JJ Mugs Stadium Grille in Abacoa.

The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl is Friday in the Louisiana Superdome where the Florida Atlantic University Owls (7-5) will play the University of Memphis Tigers (7-5). Kick-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. CST.  The game will be televised on ESPN 2, and XM Satellite Radio also will air a live broadcast of the game on XM Channel 140.

TICKET DONATIONS

If you are unable to attend the bowl game, please consider purchasing and donating tickets for the game at a reduced rate of $30 for groups of 15 or more.

I Wish I could've gone Bowling but, work was a prob.  My bro and friends though are making a trip and will be making me proud.  I will definitly go to Duffy's with about 10 people.  We need to get all Owl Country together and cheer the OWLS to Victory.  We need to show support wherever we are, wear blue and red on that day. Go OWLS !!

Re: Watch Party?

ALL:
Call the alumni office at FAU to see if other people have called from your area regarding a watch party. If not, go to the bar - it's the ONLY game on and turn those fans at the bar into OWL FANS.

Alumni's number is 1-888-FAU-ALUM
ask for Vanessa Diaz or Lee Collier. They are helping with planning the trip. They are good at calling people back, but if they don't' get back to you, it's because they are planning for 'Nawlins.
