***** UPDATE ON JAN 28th *****

We have just found out that Illini legend Dee Brown will be in attendance, and will be available for a pre-game meet & greet!!  Dee will be at the bar in the Heldrich Hotel, 10 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, from 5pm until about 6 or so, before heading to the game.  The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the New Brunswick train station, which is about an hour from New York Penn Station on the NJ Transit Northeast Corridor line.  There are trains leaving Penn at 3:42, 4:07, 4:29, and 4:31. Come on by, have a drink, and say hi to Dee!
