Staff Picks: Tailgating

Posted in: Indiana University Comments

IU Football Marching Band Ah, fall. It's got to be my favorite season, followed closely by Christmas (which is a season, thank you very much). I love pulling out the comfy sweaters, attending the plethora of fall festivals, watching the lush tree canopy that covers Bloomington turn to a fiery orange and red, and attending IU Football games. And maybe just as fun as the actual games is the tailgating. Even though we aren't the dominant football team in the conference (though I am every hopeful we will be, someday) we can …

This year marks my third summer in Bloomington, and the peace and quiet that follows the end of spring semester never gets old.
