Besides the game what the hell is there to do in Birmingham... have they added events and stuff to do since we were last there?

I did not make it out to the last Pizza Bowl, I just heard from those that went that there was nothing to do.

Hmmmm if that is it then I'd rather just go to St. Pete... I'll go either way but come on... there was more going on for the regular season FSU game then there is for a Bowl game??

Dixie,

We drove up the day before the game last time, did some tailgating the morning of and left directly after the game and drove straight back.  Got in around 2:00am.  Don't think we'll be doing that this time. 

So I can't tell you much about the city and activities.  We are planning on going again. 

Still hoping for Meineke, but then that means leaving Xmas day, driving part way up and finishing the drive on the 26th.

There was more to do in El Paso than Birmingham.  That said, still had fun and ate **** good bbq.  There were some decent bars downtown as well.  Would like to see more bowl-related events next time around for sure.

Thanks Ricky,

If USF gets placed in this game (which I heavily doubt) then we are gonna leave New Years morning check into a hotel room, go to the game, and then leave the following day.

Never been to the Pizza Bowl so its worth a drive... just hope that if we do end up going that its against UGA  >:D

Here's the link to the official bowl website.  Guess who holds the record for the longest FG in bowl history (teaser)?

Hate to break this to the fans of Meineke and Charlotte on here, but unless you intend on heading up to Charlotte on the 23rd, there might not be much to do in the Queen City prior to the game. Flying or driving out on Christmas evening pretty much ensures that you will be going for just the game and then coming back. So long as an SEC team is going to be in the Pizza Bowl, give me Pizza over Mufflers this year.
