As some of you know, I have some friends making the trek from Fargo, ND to Green Bay for the Dallas game this year. Since she knows that I fraternize with the enemy (you guys) ;), she sent my wife the following email:

Quote:
Would your hubby mind doing one more research thing for me the next time he is on one of the Packer blogs? Can he find out which lot is best to park in/tailgate at? My options are:
Arena Lot
Blue Lot (which I know has the Bart Starr Tailgating Party and the one I think I am going to do unless I hear otherwise)
Stadium View
Sarnac Glove
Brett Favres Steakhouse (which I also think has a tailgating thing but doesnt sound as big, but I could totally be wrong)


Suggestions? Are any of those lots good, or are there better ones?

If she is a cowgirls fan, I suggest she tailgate right underneath the Ashwaubenon water tower.
Seriously there is not a bad place to tailgate around Lambeau.
I guess the densest crowds if that's what she wants are in the Stadiumview area.

I usually start down towards stadium view and in those couple of blocks and then kind of make my way towards the south end of the field and hit a couple of places that I have parked for years.. some of the very places that the Packers are buying up lately.. been hitting some of those same haunts for years.

But back to the out of town'ers .. there isn't a bad spot east or west of the stadium.. both have plenty of attractions fit for all ages.

I am sure they will.. a few years ago.. had one of the best steaks I have had there at Brett's.. little pricey but good.. I enjoyed the atmosphere as well.. that block or two down there is my favorite spot in the end to tailgate.. music and just an overall good time.

LOTS of tailgating in the KMart parking lot. The lots closer to Lambeau are usually full of "regulars" so you may be more comfortable at KMart.

I usually tailgate in the grass behind Favres steakhouse. they give you alot of room to tailgate plus the Favre steakhouse is right next to you in case you need the bathroom. Also, getting out after the game isnt as bad as you enter and exit off the beaten path.

You catch on quick ! ! ! I would tail as close to/in Lambeau parking lot as possible. Take them to the Packer Hall of Fame and do your best to get them to "see the light" and convert them, as any Packer disciple would. :thumbright:

I did this with a Bear fan, couldn't get him all the way but at least the Packers are his second favorite team rather than his mortal enemy. I'm still working on it and I think I can make some progress this coming season ! :icon_smile:

sschind (2h) : guy will be ready injury wise by week 4 have him toke up and get caught.
sschind (2h) : how soon before teams start asking players to violate policy so they can keep them on the team and not have to countthem on the active roste
steveishere (4h) : I don't think suspended players count toward the 53
uffda udfa (13h) : Incredible! Wilde's 53 man roster doesn't even have Datone Jones as "IN"...he's "looking good". Sad, a 3rd year 1st rounder isn't a lock f

Smokey (17h) : 3rd Qtr/ Jax 17 Det 13
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
