    Thumbs up Roll Call and Pre-Game Social------Creighton game Omaha, NE

    Hey friends. Anybody gonna be in Omaha? I'll be there with Woohoo Jr (and hopefully Mrs. Woohoo, which will probably mean a handful of you will try to make the drive from Spokane, lol).

    I know of at least 6 other big zags fans (and friends of mine) who will be making the trek. I know there's not an official alumni get-together, but I'd like to see if anybody has any info on anything planned as of now? Or we can plan one ourselves....??

    Hey WooHoo!

    As of today, I will be attending along with some of my cousins from Fargo, ND. We would love to meet up beforehand somewhere. Keep us posted as to time and location.

    Thanks and Go Zags!

    AWESOME!!

    Here I was thinking it would be tough to get a group together!

    Yes, let’s all stay in touch, and stay tuned to this thread. I’ll start looking into a convenient place to have a little pregame pow wow!

    Iíve just been monitoring StubHub.com. I actually havenít even purchased them yet though. I was waiting for lower bowl to go on sale, which finally happened 3-4 days ago. Guess I should buy some soon, lol.

    I first tried to buy them thru Ticketmaster, counted down til 10:00 the morning they went on sale, watched them all disappear before my eyes in a matter of 30 seconds. Reluctantly went over to bestseatsfast.com and bought 4 tickets at over double the price 5 minutes later.

    I don't guess anyone just HAPPENS to be familiar with the area around Chi Health Center? We need a good spot for our pre-game meetup! Preferably within walking distance to the area!!

    Let me know if you've got any ideas or info!

    I'm from Lincoln so I know the area pretty well. There are a lot of good bars/eats in the near vicinity. The old mattress factory is always a good time and a riot before games. Ill do some digging with my omaha friends and get back to everybody.

    Perfect, thanks.

    The Old Mattress Factory has come up a few times when I’ve asked people for suggestions. Wherever we go, we’ll need them to be willing to give us either a back room, or at least section off a decent number of tables in the corner/back!

    Not the question asked, but if you want a great steak while in Omaha, try Omaha Prime. It's been 15 years since I've been there and I can still remember the Steak. It's about 6 blocks from the arena.

    I'll try to check it out! Thanks. A friend of mine also suggested Stella's for a burger. Heard of that one?

    I purchased tickets to the Creighton game on stubhub last night. Upper bowl tickets, but I paid $55 a seat (not including all those ridiculous fees!!). Lower bowl tickets on Stub Hub are pricey... I saw some for $299-400 per seat.

    Anyways, very excited about this game because it is a FIRST ZAG GAME for my wife and my two sons (age 4 and 2).

    GO ZAGS! Check Stubhub as the prices have come down.

    As LeightonZag mentioned, it looks like the Old Mattress Factory will be the place for pre-game. My daughter is a Zag grad, attends grad school at Creighton and is the point-person for the small-but-growing Omaha Gonzaga Alumni Chapter. She knows of 20+ coming including my wife and I flying in from Denver...

    I spoke to a manager at the Old Mattress Factory last night, and she said we can 'have' the back room!!! So, pending one other confirmation I need from someone on another matter, we're going to make the Old Mattress Factory the official spot!!



    PS- Thanks for the bump willandi.

    PSS- Snowkane, AWESOME!!! How fun...

    I am extremely envious. Wish I could make it. I love the state of Nebraska and have always liked Creighton.

    Would it be difficult to get one ticket the day of the game or the day before? Are many tickets available?
