Couple of questions I have
What are the best tailgating lots?
Are there some tailgate groups I have to see?
What times do the lots open?
There is a cash lot next to the Gateway plaza and one near the Red Roof Inn, which is better?
Thanks for any help!
Here is the tailgating link off the Broncos site......http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=319
Our tailgate scene unfortunately is spread around many different areas. If you want to check out the entire scene be prepared to do some walking as there are great parties all over. We tailgate in Lot C-rv space #31 directly south of the stadium. This is a reserved lot but there are spaces directly west of us in Lot C. It's a cash lot and spaces are on a first come first serve basis.
I could be wrong and maybe someone else can answer this better. I don't ever go to that side of the stadium before the game but don't most of the visiting fans tailgate at the Red Roof in side of the stadium?
If you are looking for Panther fans that would be my suggestion.
Btw just curious how you found the Orangemane? Was it via Joe Cahn's site tailgating.com by chance?
You can see pics of the tailgate scene we throw at www.orangeforceone.com
Ths will also give you a visual perspective of where we set up.
I'd also suggest checking out www.Milehighjester.com
he parties right around the corner from us and is a tailgater of the year award winner. From there he could point you in the direction of our very own TailgateNut. Barrel man and his crew also tailgate just a couple parties over from us. If you want to swing on by for a quick beer and some grub I'd be happy to get you pointed in the right direction to get your tour started. I don't normally invite visiting fans to the party but after looking at your site I have to give you props for holding up the tailgating scene in Carolina and respect what you are doing out there. I'll be wearing the orange hat and the Mecklenburg jersey if you decide to say hello.
If you come by on sunday the bus will look different from the pics as it will have a fresh new coat of Broncos Orange Paint!
If we don't see you enjoy your stay here in Denver and try and stay positive after the game.
