***************Raider Nation Takes Over New Orleans!***********************
Here is a preview of the activities we have in store for you!
Sunday Morning: This year we are doing things a little differently...for one, we will NOT have a pre-game tailgate. The football game is a 12noon kickoff, and that gives us less time to prepare a spread, eat, and get in line at the entrance of the Stadium. The logistics were just a little too problematic for this year.
So, we believe it is best to have everyone to, at their leisure, eat breakfast at the hotel or at a nearby restaurant. If you choose to sleep in, just be sure to meet us...
...at 10:30am, when we will meet near the Stadium for our big Raider Nation Parade! We will begin near the intersection of Loyola & Poydras Streets and march en masse to the steps of the Super Dome!
You can walk to this spot, or even better take the "Loyola" streetcar up Canal Street directly to the Poydras stop.
We are working on having the parade be "real New Orleans style", too. A live marching band, a "Second Line", will escort us along the way! Our Raider Nation, dressed in full Silver & Black regalia, dancing in the streets to beat of Nawlins music!
Friday Night: we offer two activities for you to choose from when the sun falls and the moon beckons us to see what the city offers! The first is "Sir Rodney" Scott's Pajama Jam. The second is a 2-hour neon-light bicycle ride through the city streets. (more details on these two activities will come soon)
Saturday Morning: we will have an organized bus tour through the city of New Orleans to see the local sights. We are also working on final details for a New Orleans Eating Competition. Two 3-person co-ed teams take on a famous restaurant's Challenge Menu! Who has the heart, and the capacity, to win the trophy and gift cards?
Saturday Night: The Official Raider Nation Rally Party will be here!
The venue is "Bourbon Cowboy", located in the heart of the world-renowned Bourbon St! This is a top-flight venue, and we are very excited to bring this place to you!
Bourbon Cowboy offers a host buffet featuring local Creole specialties!, as well as an open bar with an abundance of premium products!
And if that weren't enough, we will also have quite a few special guests who accepted our invitation to join you all!
What do you say to: TED HENDRICKS! LINCOLN KENNEDY! ERIC JOHNSON! AND OUR GUEST HOUSE
It's kinda nice to have a Raider Nation party with genuine RAIDERS standing next to you, yes? :-)
And we also will have a very special Guest Host who will be a big part of the festivities there! “JT THE BRICK”
We will have Bourbon Cowboy all to ourselves. From its main hall indoors, and all the way to the BALCONY OUTSIDE! Yes, we will get to enjoy the experience outdoors as we toss beads over our shoulders to the eager public there on the street below. Wear your colors, wear your costumes, because this is going to be a night to remember!! We will have beads included in your Swag Bags, with more beads available at the party.
And, as always, there will be many wonderful, special, RAIDERIFIC PRIZES TO WIN at our always-jamming Raider Rally Raffle! Officially-licensed Oakland Raiders gear, of various shapes, sizes, purpose, and vintage, may be won!
The list of Raffle prizes and Swag Bag contents will be announced within the next few weeks. We think you'll be quite pleased with what is in place this year!
This year we will work with Roland Echeverria and the Crab 5 foundation. He will have signed items for sale and a raffle.
