need advice for coming to game...

Postby va pats fan » Thu Oct 06, 2011 9:22 pm

Hello!

I have tickets for the dec game pats vs skins. I am looking for some advice about the experience @ fedex, parking, etc.

The good news is my daughter and her boyfriend are skins fans, but my wife and I are pats fans (should be a great family outing!).

Should I buy a parking pass? Or is the cash lot a reasonable alternative? What time should I arrive to get a spot in the cash lot, if I choose that, and what time does the heavy traffic start?

What is there to do at the stadium while you wait for the game?

Thanks in advance, and any other tips are appreciated. Should be a great game!

Wussup dude, welcome to the site! Not sure how I feel about you yet after that tail whoopin ya'll gave us a few years back. LOL.. J/K.

You definitely want to get a parking pass. The green lot is the most popular area for parking and has the most spaces. It usually costs online $60 and up. To answer your other question real quick, the only thing to do before the game is tailgate!!! You can walk in the concourse/lobby area but we only have food places and Redskins stores and stuff.. now if you have the club level, I think there's a hooters up there. :D So back to the parking.. the Red Lot and Gray Lot are further away but those are cheaper. They also help you get out faster from the stadium too but the walk is obviously a bit longer.

Do your search online for a pass, maybe stubhub and e-bay would have something. If you don't find anything than shoot me a PM and I'll sell you my gray lot if you'd like. I'll sell it for $35 (I believe that's the value of it) and we can discuss offline. Ultimately though, green lot is what you'd be shooting for and I'm sure there will be other Pats fans there.

Good luck and I hope we crush ya'll 78-14 (TDs from the lawfirm and welker for my fantasy teams)

Yes... but it's quality parking. :wink:

I really don't expect the score to be anywhere near that :) Shanny has had belichicks number for years. Denver was never an easy win for us, and usually it was a tough loss.

Thanks for the responses, I'll check around and see if I can grab a green lot pass online.

What about the times, whats a good time to arrive so that I miss ~most~ of the traffic..I will be coming up from Charlottesville.

Thanks again.

Whatever time the game starts you should be in the parking lot 3 hours prior. That way your gauranteed the least amount of traffic and a good parking spot. Just park near as possible to the exit for a quick getaway.
