I meant to go in the Dungeon but sadly didn't have enough time. It used to be a great bar called Molly's that always had great deals on cheap beer. Will check it out next time.

I forgot to add...the seats in the SuperDome-10
They were extra wide and leather backed. Those seats on Sunday would be like $400. Good to live like a king for a few hours.
