Be­fore the Bad­gers take the field: Gameday at UW-Madi­son

Wisconsin Gazette - - Front Page -

Wis­con­sin Gazette in­vited read­ers to share their Badger gameday tra­di­tions and the over­whelm­ing re­sponse: tail­gate, whether or not you hold a ticket to the home game at Camp Randall Sta­dium in Madi­son.

Travel Wis­con­sin of­fers this ad­vice to new­bie tail­gaters or tail­gate crash­ers: “Stroll down Re­gent Street be­fore any Badger foot­ball game and you’ll find thou­sands of fans.”

Some res­i­dents on the streets around the sta­dium al­low peo­ple to park their cars in their yards — for a price.

Other tra­di­tions:

Feast­ing and drink­ing at these hotspots — Lucky’s 1313 Brew Pub, Jor­dan’s Big Ten Pub, State Street Brats and Buck­ing­ham’s Bar and Grill.

Cheer­ing the team’s ar­rival at the Camp Randall Arch at Randall and Day­ton streets.

Hang­ing at Badgerville north of the sta­dium for the food and mu­sic, in­clud­ing ap­pear­ances by the UW Band.

Hang­ing at Union South for the same — about 2 hours be­fore kick­off.
