Any Maryland Grads/College Park residents on here?
« on: November 08, 2017, 04:21:45 pm »
Going to be in College Park on Saturday. Looking for anything fun to do on the campus before the football game. Art museum looks cool but  appears closed on Saturday.

Also appreciate any dining recommendations near the stadium (parking very close by). Going with someone with subpar mobility so a mile+ walk is not preferable. Thanks,

I said I was going to College Park, not East Lansing.

Thanks for these replies.  I always thought UMD started the whole couch burning trend, but a little research shows they didn't start until 2001.  MSU did it in 1999 and apparently, WVU started doing it in the '60s.

Kapnos Taverna just opened.  Haven't been, but you can pretty much be assured of yumminess.

Old Maryland Grill also just opened.  Also haven't been.  Brought to you by the Frankin's team.

If you're going to a game, you'll want to go to the original Ledo's in its newish location.  You should resist this urge, as everyone else will be there.

All three have on-site parking that is free or cheap.

The kind of ham-planet that weighs ~110 pounds and has had 15 surgeries on her spinal column.

Hey, thanks. Was not going to attempt to go to Ledo's but those other two recommendations look nice.

Franklin's in Hyattsville.  Down Rt 1 - you'd have to drive there.

Well, there's food and there's "food".
