LSB TG6 Update #3

Time to start planning everyone. Since Adam and the Houston Astros are stealing opening day thunder, and due to the difficulties getting opening weekend tickets in bulk, I proposed that we move our official beginning of the season tailgate to a bit later into opening month. Stoners rejoice or possible just show up a little late and have the munchies. The plan is to have the tailgate before the April 20th game against the Seattle Mariners. This is a Saturday with gametime scheduled for 7:05p. (as of March 19th, the game time is still scheduled for 7:05p) With the Rangers getting the national love with Opening Night baseball and possibly the another national game in the opening homestand against the Angels, hopefully this gametime won't move.

Now for the deets:

Food: I know a guy who knows a guy that is gonna get us crawfish. Add to that potatoes, corn, mushrooms and onions and we're gonna have a proper crawfish boil. I found a recipe for fresh andouille and my guy also said he can get a deal on blue crab too. So if you're allergic to shellfish, avoid this area of the tailgate.

Location: This is where I need some help. We've held the last two (or three) LSBTG's in Lot B. The parking attendants and security are getting more and more strict on our shenanigans and without the rain last year, it may have been even tougher for everyone to sneak in. We need an in with the team or the parking people. Someone who can guarantee us a spot either in Lot B or possible back at Angrydome Island in Lot D as early as 9-10am on game day. We can collect funds and reserve 10-15 spaces again and everyone else can park elswhere and walk or wait until the gates open. CHUCK! If you're reading this, tell us what we need to to and we'll do it.

Misc: Tables, canopies, grills for the shellfish intolerant, beer, drinks, games etc can be hashed out in the comments of this and subsequent posts.

Seating:

  • 75 tickets reserved Sections 205 & 206 (Ballpark Seating Map)
  • If this game is during a Yu Darvish start, these tickets are in the "KIA YUNIVERSE" which is Sections 201-208 (link) -- I am finding out if we would get the included YUNIVERSE giveways if April 20 ends up falling on a Darvish start day
