The Lincoln city council approved a special liquor license for a tailgate party that will be held outside Haymarket Park before the Nebraska baseball game against Illinois on May 16. SMG, the company that manages Pinnacle Bank Arena, wants to gauge the interest of having tailgate parties before Husker baseball games.
Fans would be allowed to drink alcohol in specially designated areas and return inside the park to watch the game. The tailgate would be open from 3 to 8 with the game starting at 6:35 that night.
Alcohol is served at Haymarket Park for the minor league Lincoln Saltdogs games, but not at Husker games.
