Startin' Up a Posse, Viking Style

And I use that post title with all due respect to the guys from Anthrax.

I've mentioned a couple of times on this board that I fully plan on attending the Vikings' Monday night tilt this October against the New Orleans Saints down in the Big Easy.  Now, I'm not sure how many fans of the Beloved Purple we've got down this way, but I'd like to get a bit of a get-together organized at an establishment close to the SuperDome prior to the game.

I realize that there might be a few difficulties associated with this.  First, the game is on a Monday night, and I know a lot of folks are going to have to work the next day.  Second, I'm not terribly familiar with the city of New Orleans, but I've put a post up over at Canal Street Chronicles to solicit some advice about places close to the stadium that people could get together, maybe enjoy a beverage and some munchies, and talk Vikings football.  If any of you folks that plan on attending the game are familiar with the area and have a few suggestions for watering holes near the SuperDome, please feel free to chime in here.

I'm using this to sort of gauge interest in such a gathering.  I'll also be posting this at the Purple Thoughts board to see if there's anyone on there interested in going as well.

Thanks in advance to everyone for their time and their participation!
