There was some talk the last week about a potential meet up or tailgate, and I thought I'd fill everyone in.
Despite the early forecast for rain, I will be with some friends at the top of McConnell Garage - hopefully grilling (if that's allowed) and playing cornhole and taking part in other general tailgating shenanigans. McConnell is the newest garage - located just outside the Ice Haus and Tim Horton's. Because of the unknown number of people who may or may not show up, we will not have unlimited amounts of food, but feel free to bring your own.
I know that McConnell is a bit more expensive for parking, so feel free to walk on over if you are arriving elsewhere. We will be arriving some time around 5 (hopefully - depending on traffic). There is an elevator at the southwest corner of the garage if you do not want to walk what I believe is 7 flights of stairs (?). We will head to the top floor so as not to take up any parking spots on the lower floors and to avoid the oncoming cars and such.
If anyone knows if this sort of "tailgating" is not allowed in the A.D., please post in the comments ASAP. Hopefully the weather will hold off. I know there are other Jacket-Backer type sites, so if you are a member elsewhere feel free to pass this along. And of course, bring whatever you would like to enjoy in terms of food and drinks. I am planning on going with about 6-7 friends, but we are really just thinking that will be it (in terms of planning food prep).
I have no idea if this will be a big thing, but this is how a few of us will enjoy the lead-up to faceoff. Feel free to stop on by. Oh, and if you have a TV/satellite hookup to watch pregame that would be great!
P.S. I happened to come across two extra club seats (C1, 2nd row) - message me if interested in buying. (If I'm not supposed to use fanposting for ticket resale, let me know and I can delete this part)
