Thread: Minnesota Tailgating

  1. #1

    Default Minnesota Tailgating

    Is there a particular lot that GS folks are meeting for the Gopher game tailgate? Weíre allowed to start at 8:30am and I have a group of 7 making plans to set up early.

    I have not even looked into it yet. Have you been before and can recommend a lot?

    I cannot answer your specific question, but for general information about game day/parking you might start here:
    https://www.pts.umn.edu/park/gopherfb

    Example of one of the parking map links from that site:

    My entire family is from there so Iíve been to Minnesota annually but have not gone to TCF Stadium. Tailgated at the old Metrodome several times and saw my first baseball and football games there. Iíve read everything online, just trying to find a good place to ensure we have some green space for tents, etc.

    My cousin who is my age is a Gopher but he canít make the game and hasnít gone back in this stadium.

    And on a completely different stream of thought, my parents moved back home to Minnesota for a number of years in 2002 after 30 years away after Vietnam draft while I was still in school. I went up to help with moving and my Dad asked what I wanted to do Sunday before flying back Monday. Just so happened the Falcons were in town and it was Vickís breakthrough overtime win. We got tickets in the end zone 20 rows up in the metro dome for less than I paid for the GS game.

    As far as I know (I've never been a visiting fan), visiting fans usually either use the McNamara Alumni Center or the State Fair lot. McNamara is right by the stadium while the State Fairgrounds is a few miles away but they run shuttle buses and it's very convenient. You really can't go wrong.

    Alternately, you could just get a cab and tell the driver to take you to the Nineties. It's a club where they party on Saturdays. Knowing you guys, I guarantee you'll have fun.

    So went by the East River Flats lot. Not sure they'll be open but there are real bathrooms there and a few portapodies. There is more green space than parking and it's literally next to the water. I think it was .8 miles from the stadium driving. Might be shorter walking.

    Just wanted to say how impressed I was by the gameday experience at Minnesota. Stadium was beautiful, getting in and out was a breeze, great proximity to downtown and I didnít have a single issue with any fans at any point. Iíd love to get them back on the schedule soon.

    Man, I know I"m not the only Minnesota fan who would like to hear more about your experience. We try to be good hosts and it's nice to know what you enjoyed and what you didn't.
