Fenders, Food & Fun...Tailgate at Homecoming!
UAlbany’s Homecoming TOUCHDOWN TAILGATE will be 11:00a.m. - 1:00p.m. on Saturday, October 25 in the RACC Parking Lot. Bring your grill, cooler and chairs and get ready to cheer on our Great Danes as they take on the Stony Brook Seawolves. Decorate your vehicle in Purple and Gold and share your school spirit with family and friends. Enjoy music, the Family Fun Zone; beer and food is available on a cash basis. Be sure to arrive early – space in the lot is limited! (There will be limited seating available in the Tailgate Tent.)
Never been tailgating or want some tips for tailgating success? Here are just a few tips to make sure your “gate” is great:
Make your menu simple and prepare in advance so you don’t forget anything.
Have your food ready at least an hour and a half before the game; you don’t want to be eating during kickoff!
Tailgate pros recommend extra trashbags; water and handiwipes for clean up.
Raingear, just in case…
A first aid kit

Also appearing at the Tailgate event will be The Velmas. Michael Eck of the Times Union said of The Velmas: “Their tight sound reflects jazz, blues, funk, fusion, and reggae while remaining true to the modern rock ‘thang’.”
