Hi there!

I'm heading to my first Eagles game this September 8th, the season opener vs the Redskins!! 
Having said that, I've never tailgated before. I hear it's a blast, and I want to give it a go!

So my plan is the arrive early enough (9'ish) with a flat (24) of beer and maybe a bottle canadian whiskey as tribute to a "hang-out session". 


The reason for my post, any recommendation on how to Infiltrate, I mean join a tailgating group? 😉
Should I eat first before I arrive, or will my tribute justify some of philly's finest grilling grub at the tailgate?
I'm not a mouche, I just want to experience Eagles Nation at it's best. (fingers crossed for weather).  

Thanks in advance for your help. - and yes, I'll have my Eagles green on.


Fly Eagles Fly!

I'll be updating this game guide after the Ravens preseason game tomorrow, but most of the info is the same and has some tips for first timers (get your certificate!) and for tailgates. A couple insider tips I'll be adding, that you'd probably be interested in:

  • The Lombardi Trophy is usually on display on game days, but it's tucked away in the back corner of the Headhouse Plaza and many fans don't even notice. At the Titans game last week I never saw more than 3 or 4 people notice it at a time, for the 20 minutes or so I was near there. To find it, go to the big Miller Lite tent that's on the right side (if you're facing the stadium) of the Headhouse Plaza. While facing that tent, the trophy in on display all the way to the left. 
  • In the stadium, find section M12. You can get there by going up steps (or the ramps) from the lower level. Right on the concourse behind that section are two cool things to get your picture taken in front of: A huge (30-foot?) Lombardi Trophy and a Super Bowl XII display, both from the Super Bowl festivities in Minnesota. The "Philly Philly" statue in the Headhouse Plaza is very popular, and a must-do for a pic, but these two other photo ops are cool, as well.

Have fun!

Where you have  "E" over lapping M in the bottom of the picture is the jetro lot.  Up against the fence closest to the road(patttison ave) is a huge tailgate. DJ, speakers, TV,s smoker, grill, huge RV ETC. Any ways, that's where I am. It's 35 bucks all you can drink / eat. Or 25 bucks all you can eat. The menu comes out Thursday before the game. I'll get a picture of the RV but i'm 6'3'' 240 and the guy who runs it is 6'5'' 400lbs so we shouldnt be too hard to find

My girl and I will also be there for our first Eagles game coming from Vancouver. Would love to tailgate. Post up the details here if you can! 

Also can someone recommend a good place in the city to get some new jerseys? I’d like to add a Dawkins one.

Hello All,

I happened to come accross Marky-Marks thread. I am a fellow eagles fan from Los Angeles. I will be in philly for the home opener and was wondering if I can some of that philly hospitality. I will be meeting a few other eagles friends from here and was wondering if I can join a tailgate. Definitely will bring some Beers or anything I can help contribute. Please let me know if you can help a fellow out. I was told about the green legion tailgate but I feel that’s not the way to do it. 

Thanks 

ed.
