Anyone have any initial thoughts about having an SA tailgate at the Fan blitz during the NFL draft weekend?

Details aren't ironed yet by any means but if we have some interest in it we'll start to put things together.

Sounds like a plan then :yesnod:

I haven't made it to the fan blitz the last couple years because of work or last minute baby sitter fall outs but the wife has assured me it's a go in 2008!

A few questions:

What is the exact location of this?

How close is parking available, and what is the cost (and the cost of getting in)?

How hard is it to get in and out--traffic wise?

This is at the Stadium....last year we parked in the same lot where dom tailgates...I dont remember the cost to get in the stadium but I know it was not alot...and there was not hardly any traffic....but it did also rain hard that day....and that was the first year I went....hope this helps

A few questions:

What is the exact location of this?

The Fan Fest is held at Heinz Field with Autograph signings through out the stadium. Games and stuff for the kids, and prizes.

How close is parking available, and what is the cost (and the cost of getting in)?

We park in Gold Lot #1 real close to the stadium, Parking is $5, and $10 to get into the fan fest, andd I believe you can get a discount if ya get them in advance at Giant Eagle, using your Giant Eagle Advantage Card.

How hard is it to get in and out--traffic wise?

Traffic is very easy tio navigate, people are in and out all through the day.










Hope that answers your questions!

Yes Deb that includes you as well :lol: You're welcome to come and hang out with us. Im sure my wife would appreciate having some women to talk to as well since she's not really into the whole internet thing and doesn't really know anybody. I told her we're all just Steeler fans and football fans hanging out and having a good time.

Hopefully we all have good weather :crossfingers:
