AT&T (cowboys) stadium trip advice

Going up to Arrington next weekend for the Wisky vs Bama game and am looking for suggestions on things to check out and any other helpful tips.

We're staying at the holiday Inn just down the way but it looks like walking may be tough with the highway. Is walking on game day better than paying $20 for the trolley? I was told that some of the bars give vouchers for the trolley if you drink there, any truth to this?

Thanks

Paying $20 for the trolley, trying all the bars, and avoiding the slammer or worse - priceless.

Most of the time bars do have busses that take you. Where exactly is the hotel? Close to I30?

1311 wet n wild way, across I 30. The view makes it seem like walking would be tough.

Yeah don't walk from there. I would at the very least go drive and park at wal mart that's right down the street from the stadium.

Do not park at Walmart or you will end up paying $300 and finding a ride to get your car at another lot across town. That walk would not be bad. Sidewalks are wide across the bridge. You will be walking a fair distance from the $20 parking as well. Does hotel have a shuttle?

There is always one guy that lucks out. I've ended up giving more than one friend a ride to buy their car back.

Double agree on Bush Library.
