I'm bringing my 8 year old (will be almost 9) to his first game, how kid unfriendly is this tailgate?

Hammers lot sucks for kids...fun as hell for adults, sucks for kids. Cars are jammed in pretty tight, no real room to throw ball, run around etc..even for the opener with our configuration...if Hammer wants to do that again. Not sure how many less cars he gets with that configuration, but after going a year with no cash flow, sure he is gunna need to maximize revenue this year.

 

The opener  this year is gunna be nucking futs I think at Hammers...tough environment for an 8 year old. This coming from someone who has always brought kids to games...since they were 7 and 5. Might want to think of parking somewhere else and walking over...stay if you like the envirnoment, but have somewhere to go if just not a great scene for an 8 year old.

 

I used to recommend the back lot of ECC for people with kids..huge fields to play, the craziness not so bad..where I always went when kids were with us. However, they have converted part of that lot to the UBER lot since last time i was there...so i really cant offer an opinion.

 

Anyone been back there last 3 years?

Yessir, need to get there nice and early to help Hammer mow the rocks 🤣   Was talking with my friends in Pittsburgh and said the same thing, "When was that game, like the mid-90's?  We were

I wouldn’t say it is kid fun, but I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily inappropriate. You would always have to worry about language in those situations though.

All good points. My only question is whether or to what extent Uber still exists. Almost impossible to get a driver near us, and I’ve had to walk home several miles on one occasion. I’m often unable to get a driver there, so I don’t dare pray to get one back home. 

 

I’d be curious to know how that affects Uber as we get into the football season. It made so much sense, especially at away games. 

 

I was a BIG Uber guy, and I was spoiled. I don’t like to drive with more than a single drink in me. I was careful before Uber, but now I’m completely spoiled. Losing Uber in a practical sense has affected my life in an odd way.

I actually measured the parking spaces in the ECC lot (and other lots.) My spaces are bigger so the cars are must be jammmed tighter than tight in the ECC lot. We all like throwing the football around but no one likes when their $30-40-50,000 vehicle gets hit and dented. There is a time and a place for such activities but not in a Tailgating Lot!!

Good to hear - we don’t see her often enuf at the TBDAHOTs.

Yep, my better half will be there along with one of my boys. He just got engaged but he’s still a boy to me.

WAIT! She is real? Not a “blow up” person?  :)

 

I want to meet the lady who puts up with YOU!  That’s worth the price of admission alone! 

 

To be fair, my wife will also be there....we may not want to leave them alone too long......

So, I’m making a list for those who need tickets for the home opener and will be attending the TBD tailgate. I’m waiting to hear back from some about attending. If you need tickets, put your name on a list and I’ll see what I have and what I can get my hands on.

I know Rkfast is looking for at least 2 seats if there is a list.

Has there been any clarity on the proof required for vaccination?

 

Being from out of state, we get the CDC ID cards, but all of the articles I am reading seem to indicate it's the Excelsior Pass or nothing.

Yea, can’t see that happening. My guess is 35% or more of attendance is from non NYS residents. I live in VA , and ain’t worried about it at all

So for those that don't intend to park at the lot, but want to attend, is there anything recommended to bring?  Or will there be a separate thread around what everyone needs as the time gets closer? 

 

We have our own spot we park in for tradition, but plans to bring some drinks and chairs over
