I'll be there with my son, aunt and uncle. My son is a big Falcons fan. I'll try and meet up with you guys. I'm guessing you guys tailgate?

Indeed we do.

Eastern Market area

DanO and I usually show up around 8 AM to claim a spot. We try find an area that is easy to find and has room for others to join. Then others will call us to find the exact location, and join us. Spots down there are first come first serve and the areas around us are usually filled by 10.

Warning: A parking tag at Eastern Market is $40.00 and there are usually spots close to us that are free and some will use that and walk to us but the free spots fill up quickly.

PM me if you are interested and I will give you my phone #

All NFL game day parking passes are known to the vendors as, "Take advantage of stupid sports fans day". It's in their marketing booklets.

Unfortunately, I am going to have to bow out. My girlfriend just started a new job and won't be able to get the time off to attend. However we are planning to come to Detroit for Thanksgiving and are going to try to get tickets for the game.

mark where do you expect you'll be able gto set up this year? As I recall, at the last forum game two years ago we had a spot right on the road and i was able to park for free right directly across from our site. I need assistance to get around now so if I can make it I sure hope you can nab that spot again.

If I can go i will phone you for updates and directions 'cause you are the man!
