All are welcome!
As for etiquette - well, for tailgating with PPO, if you don't want to bring anything, don't feel obligated.
I always bring a cooler full of Grain Belt Premium to share with the faithful.
Other people bring just enough beer for themselves.
The PPO leadership provides a grill and, lately, have been supplying some brats and buns that have been purchased from the Von Hanson's butchershop.
So - feel free to bring what you want to bring and hang out with PPO prior to the game.
We tailgate in Purple Lot #1, which is directly northwest across the light-rail tracks from Gate H.
There's a parking lot with a huge billboard in it (currently has a truck ad on it) and we will be located almost directly below it.
The PPO guys get to the lot at 6am to grab our customary spots.
One note - LIQUOR STORES ARE CLOSED IN MINNESOTA ON SUNDAYS.
So - if you're coming from out-of-town (as you are) buy your beer on Saturday or you'll be shut out.
There are plenty of vendors at the Dome to purchase food and spirits, but if you want to bring a six-pack, you gotta get that on Sunday.
Keep asking questions, I'll be happy to answer as I can.
Hope to see you on Sunday!
That sounds great. Thanks for the welcome also, I love my Vikings so this seems like a great board to chat.
I was wondering about the beer on Sundays also, because I know each state has their own little quirks regarding alcohol, so thanks for clearing that up.
I'll sign onto the link you posted and be sure to look for the PPO banner. Sounds like a great time, definitely looking forward to the weekend. A lot is made out of how loud the dome gets so it'll be interesting to be there in person. And of course you gotta get some good tailgating in. How many people do you usually have set up in your area?
