Hello all 2,400+ NYC Bills Fans!
First off, I know summer is the last time you’ve heard from us. Sorry about that, it’s been a crazy year for me personally. For those who don’t know, my family relocated up to Eastern CT (near Old Saybrook/Mystic) last year and I’ve been relegated to mostly watching Bills games surrounded by Patriots fans (which has actually been fun now that the tables have turned). Also, our family welcomed our new son, Kent, last month. I greeted him into the world wearing my Bills shirt as I had with the previous three kids. So, it’s been hectic, but all good for us!
That said, we’re getting a ton of requests about the plans for the Jets tailgate next weekend. Over the summer I had sent out the link to buy game tickets from the Jets. Every few weeks the Jets would add more until last week they were finally sold out. Hopefully those who wanted tickets are squared away.
This year the tailgate will be in Lot 26 again. The lot is isolated a bit, which is actually great because us Bills fans take it entirely over. It’s close the stadium over a walking ramp that takes you directly to the entrance. For those that know the area, if you were to walk up that indoor snow ramp in the mall and jump off, you’d land directly in Lot 26. But that would kill you, so don’t do that.
This is the email from 2019 that has more info and things to know: https://www.nycbbb.com/notes/bills-jets-tailgate-info-2/
Kenny (Pinto Ron) and Captain Buffalo and hundreds of other Bills fans will be there as always with a huge setup. It’s BYOL (Bring Your Own Labatt) and everybody is welcome.
On Saturday night, Penn 6 will be hosting a pre-tailgate party at the bar, which is particularly popular with those coming in from out of town who want to check out our Bills Backers home. From 8-10pm, the bar will be offering the game day menu and a la carte drink specials. Those who would like a table, please RSVP by Saturday 6pm to firstname.lastname@example.org and you also receive a ticket for a complimentary Labatt, Bud or Bud Lite.
I hope you all are having an awesome year. I also hope everybody is slowing down and really taking in this team, especially this season. This is what we’ve been waiting 20 years and like all eras, will come to an end. Enjoy the moment, and hopefully it finally leads to the Lombardi!
