    Thanks for the thread. I've really been enjoying it even though I'm up in the Arctic in wisconsin. Honestly, this thread alone makes me want to plan a trip to visit with you guys. Hopefully I find inspiration in our team to make it a reality. Go phins

    Which ship? Are you sailing out of Miami?

    Good spot.
    Are you looking for food? Casual? Night spots? Do you have a rental car?

    Across from you you have a classic Florida fish food restaurant. It is casual. On Cordova Drive. Southport Raw Bar. Get there early and get a table at the side canal of the Intracoastal.
    Across from Southport Raw Bar you have Quarterdeck, typical Sportsbar.

    If you like Italian you have two nearby. Bravo Ristorante is across from you. Right past the Starbucks.
    (Go to the other side of 17th Av, and go right. Starbucks is to your left and Bravo Ristorante is in the next plaza to the left. Walking distance: appox 10min)
    Carrabbas Italian Grill is on the side of the Embassy. When you come out of the hotel turn right. Walking distance approx 5 min.

    Right across from the Embassy you have Waxy Irish Pub. Good Irish food and beer.

    In the plaza behind the Embassy you have Duffy's and an Asian Bistro.

    Oh, if you like seafood there is Boatyard as well. Walking I would guess about 15 min. It has more outdoor waterside seating than Southport.

    If you have a car I can give you some additional restaurants within a 15 min drive. If you are into more classy stuff I got some recommendations as well.

    If you want to and I am still in town that day I could take you and your better half around town.

    71F at 9am. I may bring some German brandy to keep warm.
    Game time temps around 77F and rainy (we got a roof .....nanananaaaaa). :lol:

    Hope to see some of you tomorrow.

    Final regular FH tailgate. It will be a blast. Quite a few people announced that they will come (though saying and doing are two different things :lol:).

    For special occasions I always keep a couple of good German brandies at home. I introduced the brandy last home game.
    In addition to that the bar will be serving Jameson, probably some Tequila, Fireball and/or jello shots from Melissa.
    On the beer menu: Yuengling, Flat Tire and Newcastle, and I believe one person always brings some hispanic beer.
    On the food menu: home made burgers (no pre-made stuff) with only the finest ingredients, spices and herbs, 100% beef franks and whatever Mike is 'smoking': usually you can expect wings, ribs, smoked bacon etc.

    This is a special FH tailgate:
    - season ending home game
    - playoff bound
    - patriots

    If the game is at 1pm I start at 9am. If the game will be flexed to 4:25 pm I will be there at 12pm or whenever the lot will open.

    Celebrate the good times.

    Is there anywhere in this forum where people talk about tailgating for away games ? I am flying from Chicago to Pitts to cheer on our Phins to victory.

    I need to find 2 tickets, and also wanted to find tailgate friends we can hang with pre-game.

    anyone ? or anywhere can I go in this forum to find ?

    I'm not allowed to post for some reason cause I'm new to the forum ? Been a phins fan in Chicago for 25 years.

    For tailgating for away games you have to see who is going and if anybody is into tailgating. Just a feeling in me says that it will be hard to find. If a Dolphins fan goes to a game it probably is a once in a while experience and getting tailgate equipment is a pain in the ***. :lol: Not every stadium has Uber Tailgating. :sidelol:

    Your have better odds just catching up with a few Dolfans for a couple beers. :)

    Since the move to a new forum software has rendered the old table code useless I will redo this thread prior to next season with the latest updates on location etc (reflecting any possible changes done this offseason to the parking lots).
    For now I will lock it.

    This thread will become obsolete soon. Do not follow the directions anymore.

    The parking lots have been reassigned and our old East 22 slot is now Blue 10 or 11.

    Is it still in the same place but just labeled differently or the tailgate area is somewhere totally different now?

    Unfortunately it will be a different place. It is now a blue parking lot. I will be earlier at the game Thursday and look for a new spot. It will be in the vicinity, just a few rows closer to parking lot Gate 2.

    Sorry don't mean to hound you, just want to know where my fellow fans will be to stop by (if I'm still welcome:cool) and talk some football. You guys are always great.

    Anyway, are the lot descriptions the same or everything different? Like is east 22 still in the same place, they just moved where tailgating happens.... or all the areas are completely different and renamed? My old pking lot map valid or there's a new one?

    The new lot layout has changed for us. East 22 has moved. I am sure other lot descriptions as well. The good thing is that they added aisle numbers. So if our tailgate would be in between two posts we could give an aisle number.
    If you look at the two maps below the first map is from last year and the second map from this year. The section between parking lot gate 1A and 2 turned blue from orange. That's where East 22 used to be. East 22 is now right at Gate 2 to the left. Not a desirable spot.
    The entrance Gate 2 will remain the same. Just a matter of picking a spot without pissing other longtime tailgaters off.

    Everybody is welcome. It's football.

    This whole thread is about us tailgating.
    The directions to Gate 2 will remain the same. The only update with the first post will be the new tailgate spot which will be much easier to find. But I will let everybody know when I do the update.

    Dec 11 is our final home game against the Pats on a Monday Night. If the past is any indication the parking lot for Sunday and Monday Night games are open much earlier than the 4 hours prior to 1pm games. If we are in playoff contention I advise to come as early as possible. It will get crazy. We definitely will be there as soon as the lots open.
