Alright, guys (especially those of you that are driving), the Braves hit me up with the parking lot information for our outing on April 21st.
You MUST pre-buy your parking spot for the tailgate lot. There are many lots around the ballpark, but we have to purchase spots specifically for LOT 29.
Spots are $18 each, and as of right now, there are around 300 left. I assume we need at least 20 spots to box off a nice little corner for ourselves. The Braves expect this lot to sell out fairly soon, so don't delay.
Here's the kicker. Since I'm flying, I'll pay for your parking. I want this to be the best road tailgate party we've ever had, and since that is kind of out of my control, I need to rely on you guys to load up and meet us there.
PURCHASE NOW, AND THEN EMAIL US (CLICK CONTACT ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE). SHOOT OVER A SCREENSHOT PROOF OF PURCHASE, ALONG WITH THE ORDER # FOR YOUR GAME TICKETS WITH US. I'LL THEN REFUND THE FIRST 20 SPOTS TO DO SO.
Only purchase spots if you are definitely driving, and can bring the necessary supplies. We'll need tables, grills, coolers, cups, ice, flagpoles, speakers.... games like cornhole, Kan Jam... you know the drill. I'll set up an email chain with everyone who is driving so we can coordinate. You obviously won't be expected to buy anything, just what you can transport that we can't fly with. Everything is needed, but NO TENTS.
ALL THE DRIVERS NEED TO SHOW UP PRIOR TO 3:00 PM WHEN THE GATES OPEN. WE'LL COORDINATE WITH YOU. THE LOT FILLS UP QUICKLY AND WE NEED TO GET IN AT THE SAME TIME TO SECURE A LOCATION.
TO ALL OF YOU NOT DRIVING, AND STILL WANT TO HANG OUT PRIOR:
Bring stuff you can carry in to the lot. Hit the grocery store before shooting over and bring drinks/food. Don't mooch. If you plan to eat/drink, bring stuff to eat/drink. Snacks, beers, waters, meat for the grill. The more the merrier, but don't come empty handed.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
