Weekend Festivities

We want to invite and welcome everyone to our two big events this weekend. On Friday we'll be having a get-together at Simeri's Old Town Tap. All ND fans are invited. We'll also host our free tailgate as well this weekend. Details inside!

We want to welcome all Irish fans to stop by our two big events this weekend. On Friday night we'll be at Simeri's Old Town Tap for some rowdiness. We'll host our first live remote Power Hour from there (remember I said "try") at 7 p.m. Eastern time. So come on out for some Irish talk on Friday night.

The tailgate will be located in the Joyce North lot, or in the C1 section of this MAP. We'll be situated under the No. 9 lightpole. Look for a silver Nissan Pathfinder and we'll have a banner with the Irish Eyes logo attached to Pathfinder. We'll set up shop around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday so we hope to see you there.

Friday's get-together will start at 7 p.m. Eastern time. Simeri's has great food, plenty of beer and should have a good live band (weather permitting) starting at 8:30 p.m.

We've decided to give you directions to Simeri's if you've never been to this great bar.

Directions to Simeri's Old Town Tap

This is VERY easy to find. Even I found it very easily the first time and I'm an idiot.

From Notre Dame: Head south from Notre Dame on N. Eddy street. Juniper RD—road that runs between the stadium and the Joyce Center on Notre Dame's campus—turns into N. Eddy street when you head south and cross Angela BLVD/Edison RD.

Just take N. Eddy, which eventually turns into Sample Street, past Main and Michigan streets in downtown South Bend and turn left on S. Walnut. Follow Walnut until you run into Indiana Ave. Simeri's will be right on the right-hand side of the street at the corner of Walnut and Indiana.

From Downtown: Take Michigan street south until you hit Sample Street. Turn right on Sample and take until you hit Prairie Avenue. Take a left on S. Walnut and follow until you hit Indiana Avenue. Simeri's will be right on the right-hand side of the street at the corner of Walnut and Indiana.

From Grape Road hotels: Take Edison RD west (towards ND campus). Turn left on N. Eddy. Just take N. Eddy, which eventually turns into Sample Street, past Main and Michigan streets in downtown South Bend and turn left on S. Walnut. Follow Walnut until you run into Indiana Ave. Simeri's will be right on the right-hand side of the street at the corner of Walnut and Indiana.

Hope to see everyone there!

I've also included a map Simeri's have attached to their Web site.
