I've been on a couple of Cardinals boards, and they've been whining about how many away fans have been showing up for the games......

Hopefully, we continue the trend.

Are you going? If so, where are you parking/tailgating and where are your seats?

We should all try to meet up before/during the game.....



Me and the wife: Section 135, Row 37. Parking in West Preferred Lot.

I will be there.....I'm driving in from San Diego...have never been to a cardinals game before, so I have no idea about the area, etc...but looking forward to it (especially after yesterday's performance).

After yesterday I am seriously considering going.
but I think I'll save my dough and try to make it to Arrowhead again. For the Raiders or maybe the Bolts.

What part of town is Sluggo's in, and what time are y'all going? Sounds like a good place to hang during the "early" games.....

Yup, it's all good. We just made a family decision not to travel to that game. The season is pretty taxing on us (especially me and my wife, since we travel 3 hours to every Home game), and we decided a weekend at home was needed. Otherwise we were going to be traveling every weekend in October, which is tough on an 19 month old kid.

I understand.....the Mrs. and I are in the same situation, minus the child. It's tough enough on us, can't imagine doing it 8 times with a litte one.

When I first thought of going, I never thought she'd go for it, but when I mentioned "Fairmont" and "Spa package", she gave in....

It's a pretty cool bar but it's in downtown Mesa which is probably an hour from the stadium. I know the bus from there is leaving for the game at 9 am that morning. So most of the Chiefs fans that normally are there will be on the bus.

Any idea what lot the bus is dropping you guys off in? Maybe I'll try to swing by the tailgate......

I'm already trying to figure out how early to arrive.....since we're flying in/out, we won't be able to tailgate, but I don't want to show up too late because I've heard that the parking situation there is horrible. And if we get there too early, with nothing to do, the wife will get antsy.....

As of right now, I'm thinking between 10:30-11 would be good. Gates open at 11:30, and I know the Mrs. is looking forward to taking a good look at the stadium...she was part of the management team working alongside HOK during the construction of the Edward Jones Dump (dome).....

If it's anything close to seeing chiefs games in San Diego....I'll assure you - you'll still hear "...and the home of the CHIEFS" before the start of the game!

Should be plenty of chiefs fans there....

I went to a game there back in 95. The crowd was 50/50, with the entire upper level on the visitor side filled with Chiefs fans. It was pretty wild making crowd noise on a road game.

Also, we decided to stay in Scottsdale. Thanks for your help, we're looking forward to it. Any suggestions on a place to hang out on Saturday night? (Remember, I'll have the wife with me....)

I'm trying to remember....someone told me about a bar/restaurant north of Scottsdale that has a big open air deck/patio. Supposed to be right next to a big country music hangout.

Rattlesnake Ridge is stuck in my head, and I'm pretty sure that's NOT it....

Name of the town was Cave Creek.

I dont know how i missed this thread. I will be there with my girl friend section 445 row 15. (nose bleeds i know. )I have a parking lot G pass which i believe is by the hockey arena. But i plan to walk around a bit and search out some great chiefs tailgate parties. :D


Its my GFs birthday and she already said that she will be drinking. Now if only I could find a way to ride from there in North Phoenix. Oh well, Ill have to take it easy i guess. :D

The Yard House is sweet, but it's expensive. I went there with a buddy of mine and we each had one 8 oz goblet of beer, followed by three half-yards a piece and our bill was $90 before tip. A $90 tab is something I rack up from time to time, but usually I'm not sober at the end of it.

If I want a selection of good beer close to home I go to Papago Brewery now.

i plan on looking around for the best tailgate... aka the one giving away free food and drinks. :D i heard you need to get there atleast 2 hours before kickoff otherwise traffic is a nightmare. Gotta hand it to Glendale, they knew they had 2 sporting venues being built and they have 1 major freeway exit for them. :rolleyes:
