    Where should you tailgate in 2017/2018?
    General Information
    As most of you know FH has a set tailgate section. It’s called East12. This area is new to us this year. Our old spot (East22) has been turned into a Blue Lot (Blue10) during last off-season's parking lot reconstruction.
    The pro is that it is actually much easier to find and get to and the con is that if you have an orange pass and want to park where we are you have to come early - probably with the opening of the parking lot gates.

    The map below shows you our old spot in relation to the new E22 and our new spot East12.

    East12_map.jpg

    If you are driving and you park in the orange section your parking lot gate will be Gate 2 on the East side of the stadium next to the Turnpike exit.

    Upon entering Gate 2 you will see the East22 light pole. To get there you make a quick left and then a quick right. Drive towards the stadium to East12. If the parking attendants already roped that aisle off take one of the next aisles and cut across the parking lot - that's what most of us do.

    If you are parking in the yellow lot (cash or prepaid) your crossing to the stadium is also at Gate 2. Follow the directions above (just by foot).

    If you park anywhere else and you like to join us or you are coming by bus, taxi or Uber it is much easier to find us. The road adjacent to the stadium has been redone and a beautiful walkway seperates the road and the parking lot. In addition to that all the parking aisles have been numbered. East12 is in aisle 210.

    Coming next: Directions to Gate 2.

    Okies.
    I updated the original post, added a couple things and streamlined it a little bit (with some formatting). I did that on a laptop so I am not sure what it looks like on a regular monitor. Maybe someone can give me some feedback.
    I also added my Instagram and Twitter because I will make some tailgating pictures throughout the season. I am not sure if Hendrik wants to add anything (Twitter, Facebook, etc).

    Great post p4e!!! I'll be there as the gates open. Bringing plenty of burgers and hotdogs. Got enough booze to make Bumpus proud ;-)

    Who's joining?!

    I know Daytona will be there. My son is bringing his girlfriend and her dad. Plus a bunch of my son's friends (how the hell did I get stuck with them :lol:).
    Gates open at 9 correct? We'll be there just around 9.

    Okayyyyyys.
    Here are a couple of pics from the last tailgate. The tailgate was fantastic, the game was not so much. From FH we had "Albert Romano", "Daytona Fin", Henrik and myself (I don't think I missed anybody). If you expand that to wives, sons (and friends of sons), grandsons and friends we had about 20 solid tailgaters.

    I think we need to start taking FH group pictures to show how our hair will gray throughout one season. :lol:












    If you are new and a stranger to our tailgate. This is your mark: Dolphins tent, Dolphins bar, East 22 light pole.
    The setup could be to the right or left of the light pole or across from it. But it will always be there. Picture was
    taken shortly after the gates (9am) opened.

    From front to back: Henrick's friends tent with Henrick (69); Henrick tent, Dolphins bar, and my tent.





    [​IMG]

    The other way around: Dolphins tent, Dolphins bar, Henrik's tent and his friends.


    [​IMG]

    Across from us we have Daytona Fin and his gang.

    I do have some more pics but I haven't uploaded them yet. I was pretty much out of town.

    What a great thread. Should get a nod for best of the year. Thanks for taking the time to do that. If they ever get their collective heads out of their asses I'll book a flight and hang out in East 22 :lol:

    Don't bother. We can always feed a couple extra people. My reference to donations was in case that tailgate blows up into a mass feeding like when we go to the playoffs (thus never happening). :lol:

    Just bring yourself and your girlfriend and be safe on the road.:)

    My Dad and I may stop by. We will likely Uber to stadium and walk around with the insulated backpack cooler pre game. We haven't been in forever and our hotel is super close so probably no vehicle with us there..

    Finheaven crew gonna be there this Sunday for Pitt game? I am coming down with my son from NY. I'm a huge Fins fan since 10 years old when I visited my Uncle in Miami (in 1972) and he sucked me in. Now my 22 year old son may be even more possessed than me even though he did not enjoy the good years I had so so long ago. Would love to meet some of the dedicated fans on this board as I spend a lot of time reading posts lately mostly to share my misery as we just don't know many Fins fans up here. Pete

    I am coming to the 49ers Game, and for sure will look for you guys. I haven't posted much the past couple years, but still love this site.

    I won't be at the 49ers game. We will find a different landmark for you. Maybe Mikes tent. I'll take a pic of it Sunday. Henrik will probably be there though.

    I know it sucks. Me booking and your announcement came within a couple of days. If I would have known that before I could have postponed the cruise by a week. But hey, there is always a next year.
    But the good thing for you is: if the pieces fall in place for the Dolphins you may go to a game to watch a 6-4 Dolphins team on a 5-game winning streak, fighting for a playoff spot and Hard Rock being packed for the first time in a long time.:up: Make sure you guys have a beer on me. :brewskis:

    I think I am going to the Jet game at Met Life, as well. Is there a big turn out of Phans?
