Hambone and I are Buffalo Bills season ticket holders, and as such, we are big tailgate guys. If you have been listening to the podcast, you have already heard some of our thoughts on both the Grass Lot and the Mud Lot. I’ve decided to write up some reviews on each of these lots to help you all get the most out of your tailgate experience. In the future, I will probably be including some pictures or videos, but I’m playing catch up right now.
The Grass Lot (at least that’s what I know it as) is pretty close to the stadium, located on Southwestern between California and Abbott. This was my first time checking this spot out, and it did not disappoint.
Price: $30 per car
I’ll be honest, I don’t have an idea of what many of the bigger lots are charging this year. $30 seems to be a fair price.
Grade: Too soon to call
Room for Activites:
This lot at parking lot attendants that helped to park all of the cars ass to ass. This created good sized party aisles. Plenty of room for us to set up our tent, grill, and chairs, and still have plenty of room for some giant flip cup games.
Grade: Bedroom with Bunk Beds
This is probably the most important part of choosing a lot. We showed up about 8:30 in the morning and people were already going hard. We had around seven of our own people around us to start, but as usual, we started mixing in with the people around us. Food and drink were shared between tailgates and we even got some competition going with some flip cup. It may have helped that we playing the Jets that game, and we were fairly confident we would see a win. Away from us, there was a guy, who I believe owns a mac and cheese food truck, was handing out tons of free food, a game going on in which you basically chuck blocks of wood back and forth, and some people practicing both their drinking and oral skills by chugging beers out of a mannequin. Whether you are looking for a rager or just a chill tailgate, this lot has it all.
Side note: There were a couple of Jets fans sitting alone at their tailgate playing one on one corn hole…really brought me down seeing how sad and pathetic there were.
