This season hasnt been stellar for the Buffs and the Cornhuskers havent exactly been tearing up the field in 2009, either. But thats no reason to throw in the towel when you can still party hearty at the Millennium Harvest House Saturday Afternoon Clubs Last Buffs Tailgate in the hotels Boulder parking lot today. The rivalry with Nebraska always makes things unpredictable, even if both teams suck this year, Harvest House spokeswoman Karen Meyer points out. Then toss in the uncertainty of other factors, including the fickle Colorado weather of late November, the amount of beer you can down before the 1:30 p.m. kickoff, and who will actually show up for the party. People keep coming without actually intending to, Meyer notes.
It all adds up to a blowout bash for ticketless fans left out in the cold for the last Buffs home game of the year.
The party starts at 9:30 a.m., and the game will be televised on a fourteen-foot screen. But thats not all you can watch while you snack and swig: This is also the final week of the Tecate Grill-Off Challenge, with open-air cooks vying for a trip to Mexico. The Harvest House is at 1345 28th Street in Boulder; game-day parking is $20. For more details, call 303-443-3850 or go to www.harvesthousesac.com.
