    First time going to OU game with a Mobil ticket. Will the mobile ticket still gets us into the fair? Sorry if this has an obvious answer.

    It is a reasonable question
    The Cotton Bowl is inside fair Park so you have to go onto the fairgrounds to get there
    You didn't think the State was going to pass up chance to get 95 K to wander the grounds and spend money did you?:ousucksnana:

    Paper ticket always had it printed on it. Not so with the Mobile Ticket. I guess we will find out in a couple weeks how long these lines to get scanned in will be. And as always, Hook’em Horns and OU still sucks!

    Before 11 am kickoff, can one get a Fletcher's Corn Dog & a beer in a wax cup at 9 AM on the Fairgrounds?

    Yes, done it!

    I got a tip for anyone going to the fair or the game, especially right before or after the game:

    Do not tell anyone to meet you in front of Big Tex. It is a sea of people.

    I did it once about 50 years ago and it took at least 15-20 minutes to find the people I was meeting up with. In those days no one had a cell phone but you would still have trouble finding someone even if they had a phone.

    Pick another place.

    Worster,

    AMEN!

    1) Steps of Hall of State

    2) Ford truck display (outside auto building)

    3) Tower Building food court (only slightly less crowded than BigTex because of size of builidng

    4) If sitting on West side, the Grand Place (formerly yhe Women's Building), but enter through South door.

    Hardest place to rendezvous before a game has to be The Grove at Oxford, MS before a big game. I went there for the Texas game in 2012. Had to be more than 100,000 fans and probably at least a thousand tailgate tents. I had a detailed map of the layout and still took a half hour to find the right tent.

    Duke,

    Assuming you arrived sober, were you able to stand when you found your group?

    Ole Miss & LSU, two places where they want you drunk on their dime before you get halfway to the stadium.

    And if need be, you can make yourself easier to find by belting out the theme song from State Fair

    Fwiw, there were two earlier versions of this movie, in 1945 and 1932 (those versions had it taking place at the Iowa State Fair; the 1932 version starred Will Rogers)

    My tip:

    Order your coupons online. You’ll be sent a voucher electronically, which you then used to pick up your coupons at one of the nine pre-purchase coupon stations around the park. We always enter the Pan Am gate, and there’s one right there. You don’t then have to stand in long coupon lines to be able to get your wax paper cup beer.

    Please alpha males don't shoot me, but The Women's Museum is a fantastic place to meet people before the game. And, it's actually a pretty cool place in general to know about! (I'm an alpha male that respects women leaders more than most...)

    Agreed -- not crowded, great A/C, and near the DART Gate if you are taking that to the game.

    our meetups always require Fletcher's so big tex or Ford outside for us. must be within "well, i'll go get in line while you wait. how many do we want?"
