    Did anyone else get the offer for a stay at Harrah's New Orleans and tickets to the college football championship game?

    Im wondering what section the tickets may be in.

    What ? I’ll take whatever section and short play them. Do they need my phone # or just an email address for the tickets. Hurry. I’ll sell the tickets and watch in some great dive bar with good food. Thanks Harrah’s. :cool:
     
    At last, and finally it's close.

    Oof, I wish I were in that position. I couldn't get a room there and also paid face for my game ticket. Staying at La Pavillon a few blocks from the Dome.

    If I remember tomorrow, Ill ask a friend who works there how they are doing it..If its suite only or if they got other tickets...

    bdautch, you stay around weird places. I pass La Pavillion all the time on my way to Harrahs, few years ago, have my sliding ragtop open and music going. look up at the Homewood Suites right next door, some fat lady on the balcony was waiving her Titty...not flashing, waiving it lol....wasnt even Mardi Gras

    so I realized I have my buddies number, I texedt him while at lunch and he hit me back right away that he thought it was suite only but when he got to work, he would double check...he came in tonight and went to check...came back with "suite only"

    not many seats for that event, so Congratulations

    Got a call today from New Orleans threatening to cancel my reservation. Great way to try and get a new customer. :cool: They must be getting desperate with all of Louisiana wanting tickets.

    It was a weird random call. Said it was dependent on me opening a credit line and if I didnt do it today they would be forced to cancel my reservation. Said the offer was defendant on me opening credit. Very confusing.

    Clemson folks are making a full weekend of it.

    Wait until Sunday/Monday. LSU is a short drive - just over an hour- and most of the folks have been to NOLA many times. They will be there in force, no doubt about it.

    where were you seeing those Clemson fans last night lol, last night they had maybe 10 in the whole casino in clemson orange...I rarely ever go to Bourbon street but a friend had someone in town from Arkansas that wanted to see it so we took him out, got tore up and home early this morning, but even on Bourban there was not much orange.


    Now today...Clemson football team arrived today, fans definitely showed up today/tonight, most were friendly but plenty were out tonight

    my friend is Dj'ing right now in hoodoo pit, he got tipped $40 from someone after his 2nd song was the LSU fight song, followed up with an edited hip hop version of the Neck song (if you dont know, google LSU neck song) its banned by the university and per Odell Beckham, he said he will pay any fine they get for performing it
