12 of us heading down on Thursday, Nov 21. Is there a "UConn bar" people are meeting at. I thought I saw something in a thread a while back, but cant find it. Any info would be appreciated. We were in Notre Dame for my 50th birthday. Now Charleston for my 60th. Hope Charleston is as memorable as South Bend.

Email from UConn says the “official Husky Hangout” is at Carolina Ale House and starts 3 hours before each game.

“Enjoy any of the 72 beers on tap on the rooftop of Carolina Ale House. Not attending the games? No problem! Game tickets are not required to join us for the Husky Hangout.”

If it's you and 11 women, Charleston might be even more memorable.

FYI - They've released additional discounted hotel rates. Some of them are really cheap. They make it nearly impossible to find though.

Meet Charleston
Nice, not sure where the group I'll be with will end up for Thursday night but some of those hotels are nice and close and wont be too big a strain on the wallet.

Really looking forward to this thing, do you guys think we will kind of take over Charleston or will there be decent fan crowds for Florida/Miami/Xavier as well?

I live down here now. TD Arena holds about 5100 and seats are generally general admission. This is a good walking city, lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Parking shouldn't be much of a problem... either availability or cost. (Drink costs are nominal too, compared to bigger cities.) Poogan's Porch is great, but you can't swing a dead cat down here without hitting a great restaurant. 82 Queen is great as is Husk, Halls's Chop House...and on and on and on. If you are looking for fried chicken though, you've got to go to Martha Lou's Kitchen. Cash business a little ways away from downtown, but ranked among the best in the country.

See you at the Carolina Ale House.
Do you suggest 82 Queen for brunch or dinner? I have an 11 person party, Husk would only take reservations of 7.

For those who want to scout Buffalo, they play an interesting OOC game vs Harvard the Saturday before the Charleston Classic.

So missing all the games on Sunday including the Championship.
Correct. My friends are bowing out Saturday so didn’t wanna do the last night solo.

We are trying to make reservations for 14 people prior to each game. So I have a couple of questions. If UConn was to lose on Thursday ( I hate typing that), is Fridays game at 7pm. Or am I interpreting the bracket incorrectly.

Also any recommendations on where to get reservations for 14 people. Tried a few places and no luck.

Thanks in advance. Go Huskies
