Where exactly do Texas fans go after home games?

Asked to help out-of-towners, we went to Twitter to find the best suggestions for what to do after Texas games

Posted July 28th, 2016


Posse East or Scholz Garten?

Is it better to leave Royal-Memorial Stadium and head to bars off Rainey Street or South Congress?

This question was raised after I received an email from another newspaper in the Big 12 footprint. The publication asked writers from all over the league to do a small write-up on their town. Sort of an out-of-towner’s guide to your city. Where’s the best place to tailgate? Where should visiting fans go etc? Things of that nature.


But the final question on the survey left me stumped: After the game, the locals go to…

Understand, it’s not that I can’t come up with a dozen acceptable places. But normally, scribes typically don’t leave the stadium press box until about two hours after. For night games, we’re walking out of there around midnight or later.

So I took to Twitter and asked for some help.

The 140-character suggestions came pouring in.

We’re still open for any and all suggestions. Of course, it’s understandable if you want to keep your spot secret. Only 100,000 people will be attending the season opener against Notre Dame. I’m sure none of them will go to the same restaurant as you do.
