Traveling to Shreveport for the Independence Bowl

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to give yall a few pointers if you're planning on making the trip to Shreveport to watch the Longhorns play in the Independence Bowl.

1)  Travel in groups, the area of town the stadium is in isn't the best, take advantage of Louisiana's lax gun control laws and carry your pistols openly and on person in each group should bring a long gun (preferably an AR15).  Don't forget multiple mags for each weapon.

2)  If you're looking for good food try The Blind Tiger, BeauJax, The Frozen Pirouge, Oyster Bar, Cajun-Asian, Ono's Hawaiian Grill or one of the way too many Mexican restaurants.

3)  The Casinos- Considering the way I've seen most Texans play Blackjack and Poker yall will be better off sticking to the slots or avoiding the Casinos altogether.

4)  Breweries- Flying Heart in Bossier has the best beer (Louisiana Amber is amazing) and the service is reasonably fast, even when busy.

5)  After dark it's best to not go out in anything less than a platoon sized element.

6)  Hotels- The Hilton downtown is like every other Hilton you've ever stayed at but the Remington Hotel is nearby and pretty unique, the Casino Hotels are another good option.

7)  Tailgating before the game is always fun (unless the weather sucks) and do to the high crime rate, the Cops are usually too busy to stop you for DWI but I recommend Uber or Lyft.

8)  There really isn't much around the Stadium so your best bet is to head to Bossier's 'East Bank' or if you're feeling up to it go to Downtown Shreveport, just be careful if you go out in Shreveport.  The bars stay open until 6AM you should have no trouble drinking off the loss and another hilariously awful Texas Longhorn Football Season.

I’ve gone there for years on casino trips. Never one ounce of trouble... that’s not to say trouble couldn’t happen, but there are FAR more dangerous cities to visit.

The stadium is right on the interstate in a pretty open area.  If you think that’s bad... lol.

Agree with not travelling/ walking around alone at night but damn, that’s anywhere.

 

oh and hit Ralph and Kacoo’s for some good grub.

2 lulz in this horrible troll attempt thread. 

1) putting this in the limited viewed travels and food forum instead of football. Trolling at its best when you troll where almost no one will see it. 

2) slorch replying to it like it's a legitimate thread. Super lulz. slorch is easily manipulated and confused so it's no surprise but still massive lulz.

Also, before writing all that dumb shit, he might want to fucking check and see that the Indy Bowl doesn't have a Big 12 conference tie in.

ISU played in a couple of Independence Bowls in the McCarney era.  A friend of mine went to both, and he said the best part was drinking beer around a stack of burning pallets in the parking lot before the game.

I guess your excellent Louisiana education skipped over the difference between do/due

Fun fact: our rival went to the Independence Bowl in 1999 and lost to Ole Miss. Then the following year they won the whole fucking thing.
