The 2012 AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, featuring the ULM Warhawks taking on the Ohio Bobcats, kicks-off at 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 28. Each year, a handful of local businesses really “go the extra mile” to woo Indy Bowl fans before and after the game. This year, we’ve spotted some great freebies for ticket stub-carrying fans and out-of-town guests. Here are just a few of the promotional offers making the rounds:
Free Admission to Big Smo featuring Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws
Riverside Warehouse (FB link), 630 Commerce Street, Downtown Shreveport, 21+

Do you like mudding? Country music? Rap music? Country/rap music about mudding? If so,bring that I-Bowl ticket stub to Riverside Warehouse on Friday night for free admission to catch Big Smo with Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws. These tickets would normally be $15, making this offer one of the better ones that we’ve seen promoted. We came across this info on the Riverside Warehouse FB page – check it out here.
