THE PARKING LOT
Tailgating in Parking Lots
Choose a parking lot (and space)
that allows you to interact with other tailgaters. This is one of the
finer points of tailgating.
just drink beer in your home backyard instead.
Introduce yourself to those
around you. Talk to them, sit with them, and drink with them.
Find out what time the parking lot opens and whether or not you can park your RV there the night before. Try to get there 3 - 5 hours before the start of the game. It is important to allow yourself enough time, especially if you've never coordinated a tailgate party before.
Serious tailgaters choose a parking lot that has a view of the stadium if on-site parking is not available. Since the stadium is your Mecca, you need to be able to see it so you can bow to it occasionally.
If you're a novice and you
really want your tailgate party to stand out, don't pull up next to
someone else's more established gathering! On the other hand, I would
suggest parking next to the best and learn from the more experienced
tailgater for next time!
PARKING LOT ETIQUETTE
Basic etiquette is a must in
the parking lot.
HONOR THY NEIGHBOR
The first rule of Parking Lot Etiquette is to treat your neighbors as you would hope they would treat you!
All I have to say is; Respect!
(Unless your neighbors are yelling and screaming profanity, in which case you can hardly be expected to set a better example for the children than their own parents)
- this goes the same if
you should partake in illegal substances; ie, marijuana
Simply put - set a good example or even move if you wish to partake in all the above
Parking Lot Etiquette simply put . . .
If you don't want someone to pee in your pool - don't pee in theirs!
The Other Team's Fans
There is the infinitesimal chance that you'll find yourself parked next to somebody from the opposing team.
If you all get along, there's no better way to increase Indy's hospitality quotient.
