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

  • Extra ice

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’.”
