It's about 16 floats, both team's band, cheerleaders and mascots. The players don't parade but will be along the route. This is the highlight of the bowl week.

Burn the Horse,

I recommend starting at Boo Radley's / Heroe's and working your way back towards the hotels. There are 6-7 good bars and you should go to all of them.

I believe Soul Kitchen will be the best bar for live music. Pat's is a great spot. I'd seriously just start at one end and drink/party your way down the street. Dauphin Street is like a mini Bourbon Street without the strip clubs

Unfortunately I just don't have enough vacation days so we have to come back afterwards. But, luckily, I'm used to being up late and going to work the next day. lol

I am excited to make the trip down to this bowl. But I saw the list of events and I am a little dissapointed that a tour to see this is not included.

Too bad Notre Dame turned down a bowl. A leprechaun might be exactly what they need.

Does that mean midget transvestites?

So, if not on Dauphin, where are the strip clubs? Just asking for a friend.

I believe the closest gentleman's club to downtown is Sammy's on Airport, which happens to be across the street from the Marriott where the Chippewa's will be staying.

Sammy's is your best bet. Diamonds, Diva's, and the Candy Store aren't worth the time. Not that I would know...I just heard (from a friend :thumb:)
