So I figure it's best to stop in then move on to a place to pay for ourselves which is usually by our lonesome selves buying stadium food. I thought the 50/50 thing was wonderful. I gave a girl a couple bucks for raffle tickets. I didn't know exactly what was being raffled off until after the fact and we were not able to stay for the drawing. Great idea guys. I'll buy more now that I know what it is for. The idea of a cover charge for regulars isn't necessarily taking money from people. It's to ensure that everybody gets a chance to enjoy the best tailgate out there. Blue Crew is a family and I envy that so I want in. But I won't be that guy. I came excited about the crack weenies but learned that they were offered by the tailgate across. I was told to go raid it but I didn't know anybody over there so I didn't. Nobody wants to be a crasher.
Nitro, we were that guy for a while and then turned ourselves into regulars. Just throw a couple of packages of sausage in a grocery sack along with a bag of chips, and all of the sudden you are a regular. One thing I like about the main tent area of the blue crew is that you can just bring your own food/beverages as a way of contributing. Think of it as a really big pot luck dinner.
