    Skol and welcome to PP.O!!

    The Cowboys game will be a great game to go to. Good choice.

    PP.O tailgates in the SE corner of Purple Lot 1, literally a football throw away from the dome. There will be a thread with info about the tailgate party as the date gets closer. The time that people get there is a little fluid, usually anywhere from 8 to 10. There is the plaza right across the street too, where there will be live bands, concessions, etc.

    Are you local, or are you traveling in for the game? Let us know and we can offer some tips to make the gameday awesome!

    You will have a blast. A PPO tailgate is lots of fun. Great people. We took in our first last year, and will be taking in many more this year now that we have season tickets.

    We are close to the dome, and usually there is plenty of food and drinks, so you dont have to worry too much.

    Can't buy off sale on Sunday, so keep that in mind if you want to bring something of your own. Otherwise, there is typically plenty to go around.

    Keep an eye for the tailgate threads. They will give you idea of people who will be there, and get a chance to start learning some names.

    Welcome to the site.

    Re:First Vikings game

    It's right across from the light rail.. Easy to get to unless you are completely smashed

    Always a fun time.. Everyone welcomes everyone like they have been tailgating for years

    Been on the site for like 6-8 and tailgating for 3 or 4.. Always have had a blast and there is always people there to greet you and have a cold brew waiting

    You live in Nebraska so I wouldn't worry about bringing anything besides a ticket..

    Since you live outta the way I might suggest a motel by the mall of america and taking a light rail ride down to the dome.. Depends how you feel about driving around downtown and what not

    Either way you should be able to find a resonable price and should have a great time tailgating.. Im pretty sure i'll be there so it'll be 10X more fun HEHE

    Re:First Vikings game

    I would recommend staying at a hotel down at the Mall of America. That way you can see the mall with the wife on Saturday, and then Sunday morning, leave the car at the hotel, and take the light rail from the Mall to the Dome. This way you won't have to pay for parking downtown, and you don't have to worry about traffic out of the city after the game. The hotels are cheaper, there is more to do, and you will already be south of the city after you get back to the MOA, so you will be on your way. The drawback is the rail is VERY crowded after the game, and it will take you an hour just to get back. But that just means an extra hour to let the beer wear off.
