Anybody know what time the maroon lot starts filling up? How early do I need to get there? This is the corner lot at Fannin and 610.

I've got a pickup and will be getting a tonneau cover installed to store my items. Have the Texans 10x10 popup tent and a folding table already. Will be buying folding chairs.

I'm in the Maroon Lot, too! You can drive into the lot with as many people as you can fit inside your car but if your friends aren't going in the game, they will need tailgating tickets. They don't start checking for tailgating tickets until the game starts.

I usually get to the gate at 8am, the lot starts the fill up in a hurry. Its quicker if you enter the Maroon Lot from the 610 feeder road instead of from Fannin. I use that entrance and I usually get my choice of spaces on the first row.
