    Home Opener

    I traveling from Alaska to the Vikes home opener vs the Falcons.
    Can someone point me to a good pregame party or tailgating?

    Skol AKVIKESFAN!
    Where in Alaska?
    I spent 3+ years in Fairbanks and loved every minute of it!

    Tailgating is still up in the air, as the tailgating lot from last year is being tore up to make room for the new Twins stadium.
    No new location has been named yet by the Vikings, although there is some rumor about the Star Trib lots that Wilf recently purchased being used for it.

    Is your daughter bar aged?
    If so there are a couple of good bars that have some nice pregames.
    Hubert's is right next to the doe, but you have to get there very early to get in,a s there is always a long line.
    I have also gone to Grumpy's and had a good time.

    If bars aren't you thing, or your daughter is younger, a lot of us hang out on the Plaza (right in front of the dome) before the games too.
    They have live bands, plenty of food and drink, and sports sponsors like Miller Lite and KFAN with tents.
    If you find the prize wheel, you might even get to see Zeus sing Skol Vikings...

    Keep checking PP.O, as I am sure we will get soething organized in time for the game!

    There is some discussion happening in a few threads on PPO.

    This one was opened up earlier today:
    http://www.purplepride.org/forums/index.php?topic=36735.0

    At this point, there are vague plans for PPO-ers to meet up, but nothing has been set in stone - mainly because the Vikings can't get off their asses to get a tail-gating plan in place.
    You could help that by calling to complain - and bringing up the fact that you're coming from freaking ALASKA to party at this game and need to know what's up!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    That's is actually a good idea. We all should be calling/E-mailing the Vikings right now to express our disappointment. PP.O represents a fair number of avid (rabid in my case) fans from all over the globe. Many, like myself, will be traveling at great expense.
    It is unfortunate the Vikings
    organization has overlooked this important facet of the game day experience.
    If the Vikings or the City/county want to do away with tailgating, they should own up to it and announce it.

    There has been some talk of dinner Saturday night at Sensors or elsewhere. It is starting to sound like there may be a fair sized turnout. We may have to get a head count to reserve space. I am willing to do what I can to help with that but I'm in Nebraska.
    I'm leaving for Denver tomarrow and won't be back to PPO until Tuesday.
    Anyone involved can pm me if I can help in any way.
