    Sanity check - with kick-off at 5:25pm, early-entry gates are 12:25pm and general entry to parking lot is 1:25pm right?

    I'm taking a half-day at work and planning to be there right as general parking gates open.

    First of all, welcome to the boards Jim! Your son and his wife did you proud at the last tailgate. We have never had fois gras at a tailgater, good stuff! No pun intended. If you can bring some bottled water and a 12 pack of a soft drink like Coke or Seven Up, it's all good. The usual rule of thumb at the tailgate is plan to feed 12 to 15 people. Are you bringing your wife and her sister?

    Hey Sara, since they opened the gates 30 minutes earlier for the season pass holders, that should put the opening time for us at Noon. Since it is a workday, the gates will likely open at 1 PM for the general public, maybe even a few minutes earlier.

    Do we need a side dish such as rice or beans? Or are we pretty well set? Charged4Life hasn't checked in yet, let's see what else we may need. I will pick up some salsa from my local market, the "good" stuff.

    A question. Should we have some kind of shots available? I think that I have some home-made Kahlua somewhere here.

    I'm guessing that the mudslides were a hit.

    ^^^ Thank you.

    Just a few random comments on our tailgater. Sure, we were surrounded by Orange-clad donkey fans, but we had our little spot in the middle of all this madness. Thanks to Valleyjim and co. for officially joining our group and for those cookies and streudel. (Jennifer and Kate.) Thanks to Valerie and Jose for showing up, as well as Cheapseats who stopped by to say hello. I think that we may have a different shot to choose from with my homemade Kahlua and Baileys mudslides. Thanks to our regulars, who are beyond being just regular to keep the party going:
    Sydalish with the supplies, good food, and cheering the team on at the game.
    Boltzzz, and his friends Chuck & Lorraine who dropped in after the game.
    Coach Craig, and his buddy Darren who sat with us at the game.
    Charged4Life and son Christopher who managed to show up for the game even though Matt had to fly out to Orlando at 6 AM this morning.

    Was anyone able to get some snapshots of the tailgate or scenes from the game?

    Just one more thing to say, More cowbell!

    "We don't hate, we tailgate!"

    Thank you,

    Pointy :cool:
