Unless there's a new outpost of Peter Luger at Barclay, it's not near it at all.
Barclay is in Prospect Heights/Fort Green, Peter Luger in N. Williamsburg. The only public transport connection is the (somewhat erratic) G line. It's roughly 3.7 miles by foot.
Do you all realize just how big Brooklyn is?
I don't see Lugar's being a great pre-game option. It's nowhere near the arena, you're going to have a super early seating if you want to make tip-off and having to take a post steak dinner schwamp at the Barclay's center will be less than ideal
Folks aren't going to find a lot of high-end or famous places in the area, though there are some pretty good places to eat.
Farm on Flatbush.
My friend is using his Marriott reward points and we're staying at the Fairfield Inn Marriott on 37th St. Friday and Saturday for free. Sick.
Need G$ to pull out his Luger's credit card and step up to the plate pregame.
G$ - let me know the TC happy hour details as soon as you can. I know Lugars is a schlep, plus I don't want to rush, but my buddy is all about it. Personally I'd rather do it the day before or after and get to the arena without the meat sweats.
Only going for the night but staying at the Marriott. This will be awesome.
My group is doing Luger's as well.
Just called the ticket office. Apparently they're selling lower deck baseline for $45.50 and sideline for like $150 (don't remember the exact price but it's in that neighborhood).
Pregame will be the TC happy hour. I'm game for doing steak dinner on Thursday or Saturday night before/afterwards.
In for 2 on the group rate Lower bowl
Make sure to get the schlag of whipped cream with your dessert. Also order two steaks for two, don't order a steak for four.
postgame frank and beans if we lose
Im apart of Strza's group. Tenatively scheduled to fly back Sat night but I may push it back to sunday and crash at a friend's pad so I can check out the Clemson game watch.
over the next two months JJ is planning out the seating arrangements in your group like it's a wedding. I proposed you sitting next to Flops
Game time officially set yet?
Not to be nitpicky, but since it is in my 'hood I feel obliged to correct, technically, Peter Luger is in South Williamsburg.
Not a big deal at all to eat at Peter Luger then head over to the Barclay Center. Just call a car service, the ride over from Williamsburg to Barclays Ctr is less than 20 minutes. I usually use Brooklyn Radio Dispatch, 718-384-4444. With a tip it'll be about 20 clams.
Tons of good restaurants in Brooklyn by the way. Williamsburg is awash in good eats, but there is stuff over closer to Barclays as well.

Luger's has a car service. I'm sure they get some kickback, but tell the maitre'd as you are winding down and a car will be waiting for you when you leave the restaurant. Luger's runs a very top notch operation.
Are we the home team? I'm thinking about getting really good seats for this one but really don't want to be behind the Kentucky bench.
As you know I'm certainly in for Saturday.
Board pre-game trip to Mile End? We'd overfill the place.
I forgot how many Brooklyn people are on this board.

NYCTerp05: i guarantee you my child won't turn out gay
When I went last year to the one in Great Neck they took a credit card from our group
Some context for travelers (finally something I feel qualified to post about!), I've lived in Brooklyn for 15 years:
Barclays is the first piece of a huge new development called Atlantic Yards, it is an old, depressed (meaning below street level) rail storage yard; so right now there is not a lot right next to it. There is a crappy urban mall nearby. Park at your hotel or a mass transit hub and walk or take the subway, this area is a mess by car. Atlantic Yards is a hub and lots of trains go there, as well as the Long Island Rail Road.
There are new hotels on 3rd Avenue, but please be aware that 3rd avenue was just rezoned about 5 years age. This used to be all Taxi depots and garages. Some of that, and Brooklyn's main UHaul will be your neighbors. The hotels on 3rd are glorified motels. There is lots of stuff near by (Park Slope/Carroll Gardens, but just know it is not the NY experience of the movies.
If you come to New York and eat at a chain restaurant, you are not doing it right (and should never be invited back).
New York and Brooklyn in particular, probably offers the best, most diverse, moderately priced food anywhere in the world. Smith Street (Carroll Gardens), 5th Avenue (Park Slope), Fort Greene, and other nearby neighborhoods offer many, many, many good restaurant and bars.
Hope this helps.
The difference between the C and the A from Penn Station is two stops, or about 3 minutes

Good catch. For some reason I had in my head that it was over toward McCarren Park. I haven't lived there since 2002 (S.2nd/Havemeyer). Luger isn't really my scene - one of the few lawyers in NYC who hasn't eaten there.
