Travel In Style

Take a luxury bus, each one staffed with our friendly personnel serving refreshments the whole trip. Just minutes from the freeway to make sure you don’t waste any time in getting to campus. Loading begins at 8:15 am for all the day games so that we get you there 4 hours before kickoff to enjoy the atmosphere of the greatest tailgate environment in all of college football. (Georgia and USC games will begin boarding at 10:15 am and 12:15 CST)

Tailgate Like a Champion

You will arrive at your tailgate at South Bend, right across the street from campus, and an 8 minute walk to the stadium. Centerpiece to your tailgate is fabulous food. Our chefs will be delighting you with hamburgers, hot dogs with all the fixings and all the sides your belly can handle. Refreshments will continue to be served by our friendly staff throughout the day.

After the Game

An hour after the last second has ticked off the clock, our party will depart with snacks in hand and your bartender awaiting your order. The fun continues as we journey back to downtown Chicago.

Finish Strong

Back at Old Town Social, you can continue the victory celebration with a drink on the house. Just turn in your ticket and get a free drink ticket redeemable inside. Just our way of saying thanks for spending your Game Day with us.
