    I plan on being there if the weather holds up. I'm worried about flying down and not being able to fly back with Hurricane Irma on the horizon. However, if I don't make it down for this game, I'll be sure to come by as I always do when I come to some of my home games. :) I'll keep you posted and if I come down, let me know what I can bring.

    New Member here. Just made introduction in the New Member Forum.
    You have quite a site here.
    As mentioned, I'm bringing my 15 year old son Finatic to this Sunday's game. Our first time at a Dolphin home game (originally from New Jersey)
    I see FinHeaven has a nice Tailgate location. Please tell me a bit about it, times, and if I can help in any way.
    And any fans around my son's age (15) would be nice (family-friendly folks).
    Also, if you know of any game-day Activities/Happenings (pre-game, during the game, post-game...on site or off), please let me know.
    Looking to make it a memorable game-day experience for the youngster.
    Thanks !

    Hey, where were you guys on Sunday ?
    I was at the Tailgate location mentioned in this thread (East 12), but no sign of FinHeaven.
    There were plenty of Tailgate partiers on that aisle. I even asked many of them if they were FinHeaven, or knew where FinHeaven was.
    The directions at the beginning of this thread were very clear, and easy to follow (I even printed them out). And I found East 12. But no luck. :(

    I apologize. It was messed up. Some didn't get the word of E12 (new spot this year), some came late (against my advise) only one group made it to E12. I had other things planned that day (incl pregame field access) so I did not tailgate but was there to say hello.
    I used that time to visit the lost tailgaters and made sure that they will be at E12 next time.

    Beginning next home game we will all be there again including the bar as a guide.

    Bro i came in off turnpike at 9:30 am and cops would not let us pull into yellow lot to the immediate left, got routed to yellow lot across road from Stadium, sorry my man. We hooked up with other Dolfans tailgating next to us, and had a great time my man. I promise

    Is the Finheaven tailgate on for this Sunday? Came in from NY to see the Dolphins in their stadium for the first time in 15 years. I'll be driving to the game. Any suggestions on which route to take and where to park? Should I buy a parking pass ahead of time (which color) or buy at the gate?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    We will be tailgating at E12 from here on out. Parking gates open at 9 so we should be there just about that time.

    Where are you coming from?

    Coming from South Beach. Actually we may be taking Uber instead. Is there a good drop off point?

    Your best bet is come in off Turnpike, park in first yellow lot to left off turnpike, walk straight across towards stadium, run right into Finheaven Tailgaters.

    This scenario is based on coming in on Turnpike from North of Stadium.

    Hi!

    Going to the Jets game alone with my 4 year ord son. Are there any family tailgating areas or similar? Or would it be best just to enter the stadium straight away?

    Actually we went to a game last year as well but totally failed on the planning. Got stuck in traffic, ran from the parking far away and took our seats 10 minutes into the game...

    We’ll try to find you! Parking section E12?

    The one thing the premier league will never have that fins games provide. Looks like great fun, I just turn up at Old Trafford, watch the game and leave.... oh and then sit in traffic for hours as its in the middle of the city

    Thank's again for your hospitality. I can't wait until the next game. I also can't wait until I can join in and make this tailgate even bigger! See you all at the Bucs game. :)

    I apologize for not making it to the tailgate. We got turned around and then ran into some people I knew from a long time ago. Before we knew it, it was time to head in. I do appreciate your help and would have loved to meet up. We will be down again. What a game!!

    Hey Nando. Was great seeing you and your wife again and look forward tp next time. I assume you two made it safely back top the airport and hopefully with time to spare.
    Shout out to @FinsGonnaRock06 and his lovely wife for joining us as well. Don't be strangers.

    Tailgating on Sunday Nov 5 (Raiders 8:30pm) begins at 4pm at East12. The parking lots are officially open at 4:30 but they usually open a little earlier.

    Hey guys I'll be heading to the Monday night Patriots game with my wife and baby son from Saskatchewan, Canada. Hoping to make it to your tailgate if it's happening. I will chat closer to the game. I'm still hoping this game will have a playoff impact (even if that means us being a spoiler for NE). I will chat closer too.
