    Hey guys! I will be at the game tomorrow to review Hinkle for my website!

    I was looking for some help on a few things:

    Best place to eat?

    What to see on campus?

    Best place to park?

    Any tips would be helpful.

    Thanks!!

    Best place to park is defiantly down low by the soccer and baseball field. Free and it’s a short walk up the hill easy in and out

    Get to Hinkle early. Walk around and take it in. You should be able to tour the campus in one hour.

    I think Moe & Johnny’s is a good post game site. Would make a good pregame site if the start time was later. Broad Ripple is close by and has plenty of restaurants and bars.

    Yes, you should DEFIANTLY park by the soccer fields. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't. Just do it! Defy them! (just giving you a hard time @ButlerGrad1111)

    Weeknight games, you can generally find parking along the east side of Hinkle, a couple blocks away. Especially if you get there early and take in all of the Hinkle nostalgia.

    Best place to eat? Yats on College if you like independent locally owned restaurants

    What to see on campus? Girls

    Best place to park? In the neighborhood due south of Hinkle. Also, lots of free street parking on Boulevard just a short walk from the venue. Have fun!

    I’d second Twenty Tap on College. Moe and Johnnys is fine for cheap drinks but the food is not impressive. Chatham located on campus is a local chain and has good beer selection and decent food too (though I haven’t been to this location yet).

    Do not park in the garage!

    What to see: not sure if there will be much action since it’s a mid week game, but stay to watch the little kids play on the court after the game. Growing up Butler

    I would also check out Broad Ripple if you have some extra time. Eclectic mix of restaurants and shops.

    I highly recommend Union Jack’s. Really cool and delicious pizza place in Broad Ripple. I hope you enjoy your experience!

    I hope you enjoyed your visit. Unique to get a rain delay during a b-ball game. But one helluva game.

    Pay no attention to that bucket of water in the rafters! It will never happen again!

    I think the building sprung a leak many years ago in the 6os or 70s. Can't remember if it was during a BU or HS game. Surprising that the fairly new roof leaked. The BU repair crew saved the day though by using a red bucket.

    Woods said it was a window that actually leaked and dripped onto a beam and then onto the court.

    I think a window leaking is a lot easier to fix than a roof, so that's good news.
