I think you guys are a bit confused. By a tailgate party... they mean us. A couple of vans from local radio will show up and set up tents where they give out stickers and keychains.

No, I am not confused at all. That is exactly what I thought. They are trying to get everyone to show up early, not just the GAers.

The pic came up when I search for "redneck tailgate."

Parking lot party, etc.



Although, yes, now that I read it, how do you have a tailgate party w/o cars?

Canadians

That looks like a nightmare to me. WAY too many people in way too little space.

They should choose another name though. Tailgate party doesn't work.

Don't worry GG. The Hippodrome is in a huge area, and we will be in line, like you said!

So there's NO parking at the venue and yet they have a tailgate party, in other words, party with/at your car?? That makes no sense, especially given the amount of parking space apparent from google maps pictures.

So, what is it, parking or no parking? How much can you take in supplies on the subway or bus?

^^I was just thinking the same thing...where is everybody supposed to put their GA stuff before the show starts if you can't bring a car? I really hope the metro will be able handle these crowds!

If you click the link I posted earlier and look around, it says no parking.

I have a feeling public transit is going to turn into a nightmare! What I bring to the GA line I am ditching at the gate.

I didn't go all the way to the bottom of the page, oops. That's a drag - changes some plans - can't stash our stuff in our car and will have to subway/bus/taxi our way there. *sigh*

I didn't know either until I read it last night. That is why I posted it, so people in this thread would have a heads up! There is a Walmart nearby that might have some supplies left. I think getting back after the shows is going to be Chaos!!!

I was going to book a hotel on Cote de Liesse and it'll be a nightmare getting there and (especially) back. Lots of walking who knows where. Perhaps I'll look for a more direct place to stay, even though as the crow flies it's close.
