    Does Gillette allow Kegs or beer balls into the parking lots? Bringing a bunch of buddies to the game this weekend and figured throwing a keg in the back of the pickup wouldn't hurt anyone. Are they illegal to have in the parking lots? Anyone ever try it?

    Personally I don't like driving around with a keg in the trunk. Would much rather leave the empties at the stadium, forgoing the nickels. If you are as much as a hair over the limit you are gonna spend the night in jail if you are driving around with a tapped keg in the car.

    Apparently the tailgating rule in the meadowlands stipulates that if they yell vulgar phrases at you, you must take you top off. :p

    Gosh you don't pay attention very well. That is not a tailgating rule. It is a rule at halftime.

    Never thought of that aspect of it, thanks. Completely forgot that I'd have to be bringing the keg back to where I got it. Wouldn't want to risk it. Might as well as stock up on the 30 packs. Anyone just hanging out in the parking lot for the game? Got a nice tent and some TV's to set up to watch the game in the parking lot. Not willing to pay a truck payment just for SRO. Should be a good time.

    I will be there tailgating bright and early for the game. We also have a tent with TV's. I hope this helps cover us from some of the rain/snow that is expected. I also hope the weather is not as bad as they are saying that it will be..:snob:

    How do you run your TVs? Converter through the cigarette lighter? I will be doing that with a new converter I got at Circuit City. How is it on your battery?

    There's no rule prohibiting transvestites in tents, so you're ok there, but acting out even a portion of the Rocky Horror Picture show is strictly forbidden.

    I just hope everyone does follow the rules on Sunday, as I'd hate to see anyone associated with this team referred to as cheaters.

    I never noticed before, but this past weekend I saw a sign where you pay to get into the lot that says "No Kegs."

    Was going to respond as well about noticing the "No Kegs" sign for the first time at the booth. Also the presence of state police walking thru the parking lots was a first for me. Appeared that they were looking at registration stickers and inspection stickers, at least in P10 South.

    Years ago....maybe 1990 (?) we had about 30 people, the company truck with two big grills, tons of food, and about 10 cases of beer. The police came and confiscated a lot of it. I forget how much they left us, maybe 2 cases? If we didn't hand it over they were going to arrest us :eek:

    This was an annual company outing and was the only time this happened.

    Although it was a long time ago, it makes me wonder how they decide how much beer a large group of people can have for tailgating.

    I hope they don't do this sort of thing any more.

    Sadly, no. No kegs or "bulk containers" of alcohol. I've seen people try it and unless you make a scene about it or it's blatantly visible no one would ever know.

    I was in P10 south myself and also noted this. I had never seen a No Kegs sign nor a heavy state police presence walking through. In fact, the mounted patrol even made an appearance.

    It was my first time in P10 - is it something specific with this lot?
