Turn Game Day into a Getaway...

Before you arrive in town, however, we're here to give you the rundown on how to make the most of your game day getaway.

BUYING TICKETS

IU Baseball

You can, of course, purchase single tickets, but there are also season, family packages, and premium ticket bundles. Check out the multiple ticket options for the 2020 season here. We suggest grabbing them soon as tickets will be hard to come by closer to game day. To make sure all Hoosier fans and guests have a fun and safe experience, refer to IU's official game day info here.

WHERE TO EAT

Beer at Nick's English Hut

Looking for a place to grab a bite before the game? At the top of every Hoosier's list is Nick's English Hut. Not only are the walls adorned with the historic IU memorabilia, but the food and drinks are excellent too (Sink the Biz, anyone?!). As if Nick's couldn't get any better, you can enjoy a stromboli and a bucket of Biz Fries on their patio while watching the hustle and bustle on Kirkwood Ave. 

In the mood for wings? Look no further than BuffaLouie's! Not only is their food top of the line (once ranked by USA Today as a Top Ten Wing Joint in the United States), but the atmosphere is the epitome of Hoosier Hospitality. BuffaLouie's patio is perfect for enjoying saucy wings and looking out to the iconic Sample Gates.

If you're more of a steak and potatoes kind of person then Janko's Little Zagreb's is for you. The iconic steakhouse in downtown Bloomington is known for many things including their amazing spicy meatballs, perfectly-grilled steaks, and laid back atmosphere.

WHERE TO STAY

Two queen room at the Memorial Union IU

There is no shortage of hotels in Bloomington, but if you're looking to lay your head near Andy Mohr Field check out the Biddle Hotel in the Indiana Memorial Union. The rooms are decorated with photos of campus and IU pillows (pictured above). Added bonus? You are smack dab in the middle of campus. Graduate Bloomington is also a great option to put you in the spirit on game day. The boutique hotel screams Bloomington and IU. As soon as you step into the lobby, you will pick up on the little details that only Hoosiers would understand. No matter where you choose to snooze, Bloomington lodging options cover all styles, locations, and price points.
