Same area?

I know it's not the same exact spot...or is it?
We will be where the motor homes lined up as you exit the F-2 area.....That is a WIDE LANE to enter and exit the parking lot.

If you remember, we were always next to those locked double gates and you could look straight at the exit from those same gates......we will be along that exitway. The wide lanes there gives us room to set up tables and mingle.........Look for the banner BOLTTALK.COM hanging off my rig or listen for the trumpet...

So if the gates open at noon, does that mean the tailgate starts at about 11:00am? :icon_party:

If the Gates open at noon do the Chargers automatically get a 7 or 14 point lead before the game starts?

Mimosas?????

Now you tell me. I was thinking about hiring one of those tequilla shooters guys that walks around and pour tequilla in your mouth, then shakes your head and blows a whistle. That should go over well in the morning. :icon_banana:

"Tequila shooter guy" is Rule12B and his Octobolt that he brings.

It is medieval.

Mimosas at dawn is a tradition that goes way back to our days in Las Vegas which carried over to the tailgaters decades ago. It helped get the day started and take the edge off any hangovers. :icon_mrgreen:

The early arrivers started catching on and slowly each started bringing Magnums or bottles of champagne and a jugs of orange juice to add to the madness. Now even some of the satellte groups will march over a bottle to split with us....it is alll good !!!:icon_banana:

After about 10 am, fans switch to beers because the mimosa gets old after the sun is well up and the bbq's get online.....
