We might as well invite these guys once the BigXII kicks Baylor out of the conference. You down, RamSack?

Absolutely.  I'm sure TCU would be okay with it too.

Here's the latest construction cam.  They started adding the second deck on the east side this week.

West Stadium Center Named Top 20 Sports Destination for Weddings
And speaking of recognition, WeddingWire chose the West Stadium Center out of more than a thousand venues as of one its 20 winners of the 2016 Editors' Picks awards for the best sports themed venues for weddings.  Just another step in our quest of being a Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program and building the K-State brand!

I'll be damned. Also, suck it ramsack

Video Drive-by of CSU's new stadium.  Construction will be finished this summer in time for the football season.

it's being funded by weddings?

I thought that might raise some eyebrows.  Weddings happen year-round and is one example the advisory board used as being a source of income to help pay for the stadium.  It’s probably more likely that people will rent out a space for a wedding reception though.  And, yes, people do get married at stadiums.  Other obvious events include business meetings, holiday parties, etc.  Basically anything that hotels rent their spaces for are the same types of events CSU will be renting their stadium areas out for.

Fortunately for us, we don't have to rely on them this year either.  All boxes and premium seating are already sold out.  Weddings and other corporate events were built into the financial model (as they should be) and are just gravy (at least this year).

Not sure what is more awful. The stadium or your choice in music for that video?

I think it looks great, except for that one section next to the press box in the upper deck. You know the one, the one that sticks back up on the outer edge of the upper deck. Just looks extremely LOL

The lights that hang out past the sides of the press box kind of bug me too.

Go to Horse & Dragon and Jessup Barrel House.

If you give a better idea of where you'll be and your interests, I can add more detail.  Here's some idea for the Fort Collins area.

1) Go on a brewery tour.  KC has BBQ, we have beer.  Like kstofer said, Horse & Dragon is a great place (a little out of the way, but worth it).  I also like Equinox which is in Old Town Ft Collins.  New Belgium and Odell's are more national brands, but they're huge and more touristy than those mentioned above.  There's a ton of breweries here, but only a handful I'd recommend.  There are organized tours if you don't want to drive or you can Uber it. 

2) Drive by CSU's new stadium and check it out in person.  I think you'll like CSU's campus.

3) Go to a pot shop and check it out even if you don't buy anything.  It's an interesting experience.  I'd suggest the one on Mountain Ave in Old Town Ft Collins. It's probably a 5 minute walk east of Equinox Brewery above. 

4) If you're in Loveland, drive up the Big Thompson Canyon.  Hwy 34 is closed past the narrows part of the Big Thompson Canyon, but this is the stunning part of the drive.  It's really pretty.

5) If in Ft Collins and only have limited time, drive around Horsetooth Dam.  There's some decent hiking around there too including a trail up to the base of Horsetooth Rock.

6) Another drive is to go up Hwy 14.  Cameron pass is good turnaround point on this drive.  Grey Rock hiking trail is on the way (3 miles each way).  Cameron Pass is probably a 2 hour drive from Ft Collins.

7) Go skiing if you have time.  We've been getting a lot of snow in the mountains this year.  Skiing is about an hour from Denver (2 hours from Ft Collins). 

I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions.

I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions.
This is a good list and much more thorough than mine.  The Poudre Canyon (up Hwy. 14 like Mike said) is great, especially if you have the time to go all the way up to Cameron Pass.  The lower half of Big Thompson (Hwy. 34) is more impressive though if you have a limited amount of time, and you're more likely to see wildlife there (bighorn sheep).

If you have little ones there is a very family-friendly hike on the west side on Loveland called Devil's Backbone, only 1 mile to a natural viewpoint.  Also, if you are in Loveland and the womenfolk are tired of beer, there is a great brewery/cidery combo called Big Beaver Brewing/Climb Hard Cider - bonus is that you can only get beer on one side and cider on the other so it's a great excuse for some healthy separation.

Guys, I got so high and went on a spiritual journey at a Ryan Bingham concert at the Mishawaka Amphitheater one time. Man, it was amazing.

Guess I'm just throwing it out there cause it's right on the pooder (I guess hwy. 14). So do that if you can, Y_L_A.

We're happy for you and all, but I think you would have more enjoyment posting this on Phog.net and rubbing it in their face that you are in a lesser conference with a much nicer football stadium.

New stadium stated as reason for the return of a relic missing for over 100 years.
