  5. 2014 MAC Tournament Watch

    Can't fans traditionally go to Flannery's at E. 4th and Prospect. But NOT THIS YEAR. LOL
  6. 2014 MAC Tournament Watch

    Huron Point Tavern offering fans wearing Zips gear $1 off on all draft beer. A downtown Cleveland bar that flies the colors...good enough for me.
  7. Of Demetrius Treadwell and hosiery

    Keep wearing the same socks. Respect the streak!
  8. Well done, indeed. I especially liked the locker room stuff. One note, though, the shot with the porta potties in front of the Clevelander was, well let's just say, eye-catching.
  9. Huron Point Tavern (next to Clevelander). Don't see any blue and gold at the Clevelander, by the way.
  10. Same deals tomorrow for the championship game. Good to see a great Zips turn out.
  11. OK, Captain!!! Go Zips!

    MAC website has Ball St. winning the game, 76-61. FAIL
  14. A New Arena

    This tread brings back memories of when the University announced that a new arena was going to be built on campus. Us old farts went to games at Memorial Hall and parked our cars where the JAR sits today, next to the old fire station. The original design was impressive: Ten or 12,000 (can't remember which) theater-type seats, racket and hand ball courts. The General Assembly pulls funding, and we have what we have today, a glorified high school gym. I've never liked the JAR.

    Is that really the the only reason, George?
  17. For Friday night - the owner of the Huron Point Tavern (formerly Alesci's and next to the Clevelander) at the intersection of Huron, Prospect and E. 9th, is having specials for Zips fans. On Friday night, anyone wearing Akron gear can buy domestic drafts or bottles for $2 (reg. $3.50 to 4.50) and Imported drafts or bottles for $3 (reg. $4.50 to $6.50). The also serve great, homemade Italian food. I was at the Clevelander last year and many were complaining about high beer prices, so I asked the owner of Huron Point if he would cut Akron fans a break. Hope to see you there and Go Zips!
  18. Friday night hangout?

    Can do, Dr. Z!
  19. Friday night hangout?

    [i know quite a few people are going to jump all over this Huron Point alternative. Nice work. Thanks. Just dropped off the Akron flags and an AK-OLDIES banner to the owner. He is "Zip-friendly." I took a peek inside the Clevelnader and they did remodel, although it really doesn't look that different. It's open, though. I also confirmed the beer prices. Everything is a go. I reminded him that the discount is only for those wearing Akron gear! Say hi to Jeff if you go in.
  20. MAC Coach and POY

    In Dambrot, I trust.
  21. Friday night hangout?

    I would not post something that is not true.
  22. They've had the front windows at the Clevelander papered up for a few weeks. Definitely some capital improvements going on. I'll try to check it out at lunchtime Wednesday to see if it's open and see how it looks.
  23. Friday night hangout?

    Bringing the guy a couple of Akron flags to hang in the bar. We must have the proper atmosphere! Let's all have a toast to the Zips. In Dambrot, I trust.
