+2, anyone know any places for food or drinks pregame in Newark?
There are a lot more options around Prudential Center than used to exist in Newark. You have Redd's where UConn is having an alumni meet-up. You also have Dinosaur BBQ near by. McGovern's Tavern is an institution that closed for major renovations. I can't get info on-line on whether it's opened. The Ironbound (as mentioned by Sledog) has solid Portuguese restaurants, but I don't know of any that are great for just drinks.

it should be a home game for us, if its not, we have a problem with our fan base
I don't think the event is selling well so it's probably going to be about what we saw at the Jimmy V Classic last night where none of the fanbases made it to MSG. I live in NYC and it's a bit of a hike even for me so obviously it isn't much better for CT folk, but hopefully we get a decent showing.

I don’t judge people’s decision to go to a game, but just want to make sure you (or others in NYC) know just how easy it is to get to Pru. You can’t get a train from Penn Station that takes less than 20 minutes. You can also take a PATH train which is a bit slower.

Is it an Amtrak train you take from Penn station?

No. NJ Transit. Here's a link where you can put in time and location of departure. Origin would be NY Penn to Newark Penn (it would've been too easy to give them different names). New Jersey Transit
If anyone is coming from Brooklyn or lower Manhattan to the gamet, the PATH train goes straight from World Trade Center to Newark Penn Station as well. It's the last stop on the train and you'll also know you're there when you get off as there is an overpowering aroma of popcorn on most days.

Do you know if there’s going to be any live streams or radio cover of this event?
I will be there and am planning on videotaping and tweeting out highlights of uconn prospects in real time. It will not be a constant stream but we did get credentials to tape and share on socials so hopefully there wont be any issues.

Give us a follow if interested @instorrsnow
