New Orleans - With Tropical Storm Karen approaching the gulf coast, including the Greater New Orleans area, Tulane Athletics has made alternate plans for pre-game fan activities for the Green Wave's homecoming football against North Texas on Saturday. Due to safety precautions, all official tailgating activities on the roof of Garage 5 and 6 have been suspended.
Members of the Tulane Athletics staff have been actively tracking this storm, which is scheduled to make landfall sometime Friday evening and Saturday morning, and working with officials from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The start time for the Tulane-North Texas game has not changed and the contest will kick-off at 2:30 p.m.
The St. Charles Lounge, located inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome, will open at 12:30 p.m. Any ticketed guest may enter the lounge, and guests will have full access to a cash/card bar and the opportunity to purchase food. No outside food or beverage will be permitted inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome. To enter, fans are asked to go to the Northwest escalator located by Gate G.
In addition, Tulane Athletic Fund donors will also have access into the Claiborne Lounge at 12:30 p.m. The entrance is through gate G.
Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys will be performing from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m. in the St. Charles Lounge.
