*edit - if you're not a part of our normal tailgate, thank you for the interest but I can't vouch for folks I have never met. If this happens I'll be sure and create a viewing party thread in another thread*

Blue Crew,

A certain midtown establishment has asked if I would set up a tailgate for the MNF game.

If you want to watch the MNF game at a midtwon bar, you will get beverages through me.

You'll need to be there ASAP after work. No later than 5:30/6 (sooner if possible).

We will be grilling there, so I would ask a $7 donation and I'll provide a meal, sides and snacks.

Dinner will be served between 6:30 and 7 sharp.

We'll need people to help watch the stuff during the game (shifts?) and help taking everything down after the game (takes about 20 minutes).

If you're in let me know!! As soon as I hear for sure I'll let folks know.

Will need a grill, preferably propane


I'll need about 10 folks or so. PM me your e-mail if interested.

I heard a rumor our friends from yellow, Shotgun 30, will also be there. 21+ only.

Joe is right - no reason not to come watch the game there!!! I'm sure they'll have great beer specials and it'd be cool to watch an away game with y'all.

Let me know and I'll try to reserve some tables.

what place in midtown is this MNF happening at?

Just in case there's some weird Texas or TABC law that may be infringed (like open flames in the parking lot w/out a permit or something) I intentionally did not drop the name of the bar.

It's also not a free for all tailgate but I will be down some of my normal crew and thought this was the best place to ask some of the Blue Crew if they'd like to help me out.

I hope all of that makes sense w/out sounding snobby or anything.

IF this ends up happening I'll post a much different thread later on :)

Ok, just got the details. Setup at 2 PM and tailgates must be taken down prior to kickoff.

At this point is there ANYONE (other than Big Toro) that can be there before 5?

Otherwise we may bail on the idea - cause it would just be me and Big Toro until 5:30ish, people roll in at 6 and we break down at 7....

Yea too much work for just a couple of people, if we hae to break down by 7. I am off now Sat through Wed and if we are going to bail on this I'm seriously considering going to INDY!

This is news to me. Texan Mojo is planning to be there in full effect, but taking it all down by 7:00 PM is going to be a deal killer for us. Screw that.

I have a call into them for more details. I was envisioning more of a tailgate party in the parking lot throughout the game, which would be awesome.

We told them we were not competing...

Technically, I didn't say we weren't competing. They said they wanted to have some kind of grilling competition. I told them grilling wasn't our specialty. Drinking beer is our specialty.

Let me know if you hear something different. They told the wife setup around 2 and break down at kickoff and go inside to watch the game. Maybe it was not a requirement? May be a deal killer for us since many folks cannot arrive until after 6. I need to talk to my folks then we'll call them tomorrow to clarify. I'll post what I hear.

Im going to the tailgate now, but the best ones that I found were in section 132 row 23 for 140 a piece in lower level.

Actually I found these at ticket liquadator and they are cheaper, section 152row 29 for 122 a piece here is the link:http://www.ticketliquidator.com/tix/tickets.aspx?evtid=1352888

And Expedia has a Radison for 62 dollars a night, The Radison's I have stayed at have benn pretty decent. It's by the airport and 6 miles from stadium, but for the price you can't beat it.

We're setting up around 3. Most folks are coming at 5.

So JUST to spell it out - we want everyone cheering on the Texans at Pub Fiction tonight - but I only bought enough food for the people who e-mailed me last week and only signed up for enough free beer bracelets for those folks.

Just want to make sure there are no hurt feelings due to misundertsandings - If we haven't talked off of here I didn't count you in (all of Blue Crew was invited but I had to get a final head count last week for those who were tailgating for food and free beer bracelets).

The bar, however, has great food and plenty of cold brews and we need to cheer so loud they hear us in Indy. :)

(I just don't want 20 people showing up thinking I am feeding them and getting them free beer when I don't have any way to do that!)
