  1. So I have only been to an afternoon game, and I drove to it at about 7 in the morning for the tailgate. I can assure you they're will be a tailgate. I recommend joining a pre-arranged tailgate like "Cav's Philly Tailgate" , you can find them on facebook. They cook all the food and provide you with as much beer as you can drink, as the time gets closer they will start posting details on their facebook page. I will say this though, if you just arrive at the parking lot, everyone is extremely friendly to fellow Eagles fans and you are likely to get invited to someones tailgate, especially once they find out it's your first game. My last tip would be in getting to the game. The Double Tree hotel has a Subway entrance literally 4 feet from the front door, and I know during regular season games at least, it is a free ride to the stadium, I'm not sure if they are free for a pre season game, but even if not, it'll still be cheaper then the $40 they charge to park at the stadium.
  2. That's awesome! have a great time. try to Tailgate if you can
  3. Hey man, I'm not sure if you still check this thread out, just wanted to let you know this post really set me up for my weekend back in Oct 2016, so I really appreciate that, I'm actually going to put together something like this soon to share my experience. Second, I'm visiting Nova Scotia, Canada this summer! Clearly we seem to like the same atmosphere, so I'm looking for tips on where to hang out and what to do around town. I'll be there with navy buddies so clearly we are looking for the bars etc.. if you end up reading this let me know, it'd be great to get your Email or something before I headed out that way.
  4. Oh man! I'm just seeing this. Like the fellow who originated the post stated so eloquently, it was AMAZING! I truly believe the players could hear me screaming from section 235. I will actually post a story similar to "ntynes" on my play by play of that weekend. I'm using it as my hype up for the upcoming September trip back to philly.
  5. Aw man, personally, I would hold off and go for tickets to the game on 24 September when the regular season starts. But like someone said earlier, there are no bad seats. I have only been to one game (last year, Eagles Vs. Vikings. Greatest day of my life!) but we set in sec 235 in the 5th row and it was perfect. its above the endzone but that's what I enjoyed about it. As someone told me last year on here, "if you are a fan of watching plays develop and picking about the players movements on the field, you want to sit in the endzone." I would also recommend trying to get somewhat front rows in your section, especially if you are in the upper decks; I truly believe the best seats in any stadium are the front rows of the upper decks. Okay, last tip (I'm clearly passionate about this, I'm planning my trip now for September) So visit Ticketmaster.com and search "Lincoln Financial Field tour" and you can get VIP tickets to tour every section of the stadium. This is AMAZING!!!! I did it the Saturday before the game last year and they took us everywhere, from the field, the press boxes, the press room where the players do interviews and the coolest part, the locker room. We were able to take pictures in front of Wentz's locker while his game jersey was hanging up. they were actually hanging all the players jersey's up while we were in there. it was an amazing experience and any Eagles fan should really do it. by the way the ticket only cost $10. when I am not on my work computer I'll come back and post some pictures of it. If you have questions at all about where you should stay, how to get around, what to do when you're not at the game, or the Tailgate (which you have to do for sure. I need another post to get into the tailgate stories) just let me know, I'll give you my tips. Hope my rant helped someone out here.
  6. Absolutely take this tour! It was an incredible experience. Seeing the locker room and watching the equipment team placing the jerseys in each players lockers, going up into the press box and suites, and expierencing the same walk and hearing the same music the players hear as they walk onto the field. It was almost like a dream especially for someone like me who has never even been to the stadium before.
  7. Amazing post man. I'm making the pilgrimage to philly tomorrow for the weekend. Looking forward to everything you just mentioned.
  8. Sorry I'm just seeing this, I messaged them on Facebook and they said it's cool to just pay when we show up.
  9. My girlfriend and I have tickets to the Saturday tour at 1200. I think there is one at 1 as well. You can YouTube Lincoln financial field tour to see how it is
  10. I bought tickets in section 235 above the north end zone after reading this thread. Y'all made it sound pretty appeasing! Hope it's worth it.
  11. My plan for my first tailgate is to go with Cavs philly tailgate or the Green Legion. They both offer like a $40 rate for all the food and beer you want. It's perfect for a rookie like me.
  12. Vikings for my first game at the Linc. Mainly picked it because I'm originally from the south and not very interested in any games under 50 degrees.
  13. That's awesome! My girlfriend and I are making our first trip to the Linc for the Vikings game too. NUMBER ONE thing you should plan out is going to ticket master.com and searching Lincoln Financial VIP tour, they take you into the locker room, on-field, press room, sky boxes and everything, for $10, I cancelled my plans at the Art Museum to fit this tour in. We are staying at the DoubleTree in center city because there is rap concert on that Friday night that we want to go to, probably just spend that night drinking and partying. Saturday will be the sightseeing. We will go to Terminal Market for breakfast, then the liberty bell, then the tour and probably one of the tourist cheesesteak stops, I'm thinking Pat's. Tailgating with Cav's Philly tailgate. It's $40 with unlimited food and beer and live music, I recommend it for people like us who may not know a lot of local tailgaters.
  14. I have basically become obsessed with planning my trip to Philadelphia on Friday 21Oct16 and I'm looking for some advice from regulars on where to go, what to see and do prior to the game on Sunday. I was born in NJ and lived in Glassboro for a few years, but raised in New Orleans, so I had to deal with that Saint's BS for about 18 years. So I'm finally making that pilgrimage to Philly to. For now the only plans I have are tailgating, which I plan to do with Cav's in Lot N (any positive or negative feedback on their party?) also is there only one way to access the "Upper N" lot next to the 'Jetro' building? and what time do you recommend getting in the parking line before gates open? I'm open to any and all advice. Thanks everyone!
  15. Also, thanks for the advice about the stadium tour, I really thought it was just a preseason thing. I just got tickets for that too.
  16. Awesome info! Thanks, I'm planning my Saturday around everything you just mentioned now.
  17. Thanks for the reply. I was looking into a stadium tour but I couldn't find one for the time frame that I'll be there, I assumed it was just a preseason event. So we are staying at the Double Tree on Broad st. Which seems to be in walking distance to a lot of things so it's looking like I'll be able to have that same expierence you did. Right now the anticipation is just killing me!
  18. Just like many people here, I agree watching the game at home with friends and family is way more comfortable; but recently, since I've become more financially responsible I've been trying to make at least one live game a year, the excitement to be around thousands of like minded fans is just incredible and unbeatable. Like a few of you, I will be living in VA come this October and I have tickets for the Minnesota game, which will be MY FIRST game at Lincoln!!!! So my answer to the question is that the price doesn't deter me since it's not something that I do every other week, I indulge once a year for a great time; BUT, I would be more satisfied to see this $40 parking fee go down. Although it is astronomically high, I'm still going to pay it for convenience an tailgating.
  19. Got my tickets in hand finally! I'll be there looking for a tailgate as well, if we can't find one then let's just make our own. Can't be that hard
  20. If there is any hope left to get two tickets I'm interested also
  21. Driving from Florida to Atlanta for MNF. I'm looking to tailgate since it'll be my first eagles game ever, any tips on how to find other Eagles fans in the area?
