    Great game to go to for your first trip to the dome.

    First, don't worry about parking passes.
    On game day there are tons of parking lots and ramps that are open.
    Park in one of them ($10 to $20) and walk a couple blocks to the PP.O tailgate spots.
    Last year we had five spots in Purple Lot 1.
    This year we are making plans to purchase some more, although I do't know if we will do as many.

    The tailgate is a great time, and we have a couple of grills set up to use.
    You can bring some drinks, and there is also usually some GBP floating around, and I bring jello shots to share.

    Are you coming in from out of town?
    Yes,from Ringling,Ok.. A very small cattle community in southern,Ok.
    We will take your advice,thanks.

    Any good motels close to the Dome?
    I would think we better get to making reservations now.
    Have you purchased the tickets yet? I like to sit in sec. 109 for some games. Row one will put you right behind the bench and you will get close to the players but may not be able to see over them for some plays. I like to be 15 or more rows up so I can see over them and still see the players and coaches well.

    I come in from Nebraska and have stayed at the hotel Nodak recommends and found it very good. Riding the light rail (train) in to the game is very convienient but is quite crowded unless you go a little early.

    The downtown hotel I was at last year was the Best western Normandy( see link at bottom). It was older but adequate. Parking was cheap. About 8 blocks from the dome. I did have drunks next door keep me awake until 3 a.m.. But that can happen at any hotel.
    The parking by the dome gets more expensive as you get closer but you should never have to pay more than $20 if you drive.

    Come early stay late and tailgate with us. See you there.

    Hey, Wildwoman and I weren't drunk, we were just celebrating over and over and over again.
    And by the way, I was all the way across the hotel from ya.

    ;D
    Your an animal Marr!
    ;D

    You know, attending a Vikings game is a lot like sex.
    The worst game I've ever been to was still pretty damn good.

    I am buying 2 tickets for the Vikings vs packers,Section 109,Row 1. The tickets do not include parking or anything.

    Where can I buy parking passes?

    Anyone have any advice for my first trip to the Metrodome?
    Awesome seats. Look back at section 107 in the Suites and you'll see Wilf and the fam! Advice would be don't get drunk, because urinating at the dome is a nightmare with huge lines (and trough), and 109 is right where it flooded when some drunk crapped their long underwear and tried to flush them so keep an eye out for that.
    Another thing you could do is trade your seats for terrace suite seats. Those seats are real nice, buffet, good beer, private johns, cheerleaders, etc.
