Bills at Jets – Tailgate Info 2018

TIME

  • Game Sunday, November 11, 2018.
  • Game starts at 1:00 pm.
  • Lot opens at 8:00 am (NFL rules)
  • I suggest you get there first thing if you want to park right next to the action. The lot doesn’t fill up very quickly so if you aren’t there first thing, you probably won’t be too far away.

2018 LOCATION CHANGE!!!!
We are going to park in lot 27, near pole “A”. This lot is an orange parking pass lot. Google “lot 27 Met Life” for directions if driving in. For walkers used to lot 26, pass in front of the old IZOD center, progress to crosswalk, it is straight ahead.

Buy ORANGE PARKING PASS

Important note from Kenny aka Pinto Ron:
Three of the last six road trip events I have been a part of have been shut down by the police. Stadium’s are becoming intolerant to large masses of fans assembling, leaving a giant messes, and engaging in shenanigans (think table crashing). What happens is a group of 2 or 3 will wander in with a 18 or 24 pack and a bag of munchies. When they leave there are 18 or 28 empty cans and empty bags of munchies scattered on the ground where whey were standing. Multiple this by several hundred and we have a huge problem.

In the past few years, Pinto crew members have stayed late (usually half the first quarter) to at least beat the mess down to a more manageable level to avoid being banned the next year. We are not doing that this year. This will be my 400th consecutive game and I don’t plan on missing any of it picking up garbage. We are providing garbage bags, and there are dumpsters to place trash in (or near). This is not too much to ask, don’t get us chased out of here next year! This is last tailgating lot on this side of the stadium, and one of the last lots at the lowest parking costs.

DIRECTIONS

WHO CAN COME

FOOD AND DRINKS

  • Food and drinks are bring your own.
  • Do you need to bring a grill (or other cooking equipment)? There are others with them. I’m sure they would share space, but I would highly recommend either bringing your own or sandwich type foods.

TICKETS

    • Unfortunately the group tickets have been sold out.
    • Your best bet is StubHub or Ticketmaster.

MISCELLANEOUS

  • EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
    •  A few years back, the lot was left an utter disaster. Jets/NFL security wasn’t happy.
    • Be respectful. Yes the Meadowlands was built on a garbage dump, but lets not add more garbage on top. All kidding aside, we need to be respectful.
    • We need a volunteer to bring garbage bags.
    • Ken “Pinto Ron” Johnson is the man responsible for starting this tailgate, lets not mess up his reputation. He’s a legend.
  • Is MetLife safe for Bills fans? My personal experience is yes absolutely. Yes there will be some trash talking, but nothing too bad. Like any place in the world, it almost always takes 2 to escalate.
  • Will there be a TV to watch the game? Most likely not.
  • McFadden’s and Calicos will still have the game on.
  • If a group of more than 8 is needed, please call Tom Giulietti with the NY Jets, 973–549–4872. Mention the NYCBBB!
