    Creighton Fan Here

    Hi folks,

    Myself and two buddies are driving from Chicago to Cincinnati to meet a friend that lives in Columbus for the Jays-Musketeers game in two Saturday's, the 13th. 2 PM start. Heard good things about the Cintas Center and with you guys having a great team and us having a good team, should make for a fun time, so we are all pumped about making the trek.

    Wanted to drop in and find out what we should do pre-game? Want to grab lunch and beers somewhere, hopefully at a spot pretty authentic to Xavier and the fan base. All in our upper 20's and enjoy having a few beers and a fun atmosphere so was curious where people go? Also, I thought Cintas serves beer during XU games, correct?

    In any event, hope to hear some recommendations. We go SJU, @ Georgetown, and Butler before you guys. Wishful thinking but would love to go 3-0 to make the atmosphere for the XU game pretty awesome. All three games last year between us were phenomenal. Thanks in advance!

    I'd suggest Dana Gardens but I'm biased.

    Welcome fellow Jesuit! For an authentic Xavier experience, to grab beers and some food, you MUST hit Dana Gardens. It is walking distance from the Cintas Center and it is THE bar for Xavier fans, students, and alumni. Be civil, and you will be treated well. Good natured back and forth to be expected, but our fans will pounce if you and your buddies act obnoxious.

    We believe our arena is one of the best in the nation, and are proud of our tradition. Students return that weekend, so the place should be loud and rocking. Enjoy your trip.

    Listerman's is a good spot close to the arena as well. They make their own craft beers and have decent food.

    Sorry BJ.....

    I would hit up Dana's before the game and Mad Tree brewery after it.

    Honestly if you want to hang with X fans def Dana Gardens. If you want to avoid that I would hit up Madtree and Uber to the game then Uber down to OTR and get shitfaced. OTR is nothing but bars and restaurants and girls your age. Plus football playoffs will be going on. Have fun and I look forward to beating up on Doug’s Dad again.
    Dayton isn't that bad of a place if you haven't been anywhere else.

    Danas would be the most authentic Xavier experience, but if you want to eat there I would suggest getting there well before game time as it has a tendency to be very crowded on game day.
