BEST PRE-GAME HANGOUT DOWNTOWN
Tailgating is a sport in its own right, with folks constantly looking for ways to one-up the competition for “top tailgate” title. ("He’s picking up fried chicken from Price’s? Well, I’m roasting my own pig!") There are several choice locations dotting the downtown parking lots to get your game face on. Due to the recent urban growth, the hottest spots can now be found off Church Street, between Third and MLK. There’s nothing better than throwing down with friends in the privacy of your own parking space — you may not even notice that you missed kickoff.
