MU at Butler - Suggestions Needed
« on: November 09, 2021, 12:49:02 PM »
Going to the MU at Butler game in February - starting to look into tickets/hotels - anyone that has made this trip before have suggestions?

What's a good section to target for seats?

What about hotels that make it easiest to get to Hinkle?

Anything else ya'll would suggest doing before/after the game?  Most likely arriving earlier that day and just staying over Saturday night.

Much appreciated!

Went a few years ago. I only remember a couple of things that might be worth something to you ...

We actually parked on the street, right across from Hinkle, for free. We couldn't believe it when we pulled up about 2 1/2 hours before tip and there were spots there. We kept looking for signs saying only certain permits could park there, but there were none. The car was still there after the game, didn't get ticketed or towed. So that was pretty cool.

After parking the car, we walked a short distance to a bar close to Hinkle. Obviously a Butler bar but there were lots of MU fans there. A good vibe, with plenty of good-natured trash-talking going on. Affordable beer and bar food.

Enjoy!

Sun Crusher was a solid brewery that was worth checking out.

We went several years ago. Stayed downtown, the bars were unremarkable, honestly.

There's really not many bad seats in Hinkle. It's a wonderful venue.
