Tailgaiting at M&T Bank Stadium for U2?

The parking lots at M&T Bank Stadium will swell up with people this afternoon as if the Ravens were back in season.

They'll be there in anticipation of the U2 show. Tailgating parties are supposedly starting around 3 p.m., according to my super informal twitter survey.

WNST is at least throwing a slightly more organized party starting at noon at the Tiki Barge. They're planning on moving to Stalking Horse at 4 p.m. and then making their way to the stadium. 

Who else has tailgaiting plans for U2?

We were planning on tailgating, but when we saw the $35 fee for parking, we said "No thanks!" Gonna hit some bars during our walk over instead.

Ditto on the walk. Prolly start out at Sly Horse, and then No Idea before hitting the stadium for Florence and the Machine.

I am going to enjoy watching fans cars getting towed off my street near the stadium

we are starting at 1!

WNST is a relatively unimportant website/radio station with delusions of grandeur. I recommend starting at the Stalking Horse then moving to the Tiki Barge at 4pm

@VeraBlue I agree. People always get towed when they park in Pigtown illegally.

From the Baltimore Firefighter's Union:
There is tailgating at the Baltimore Firefighters Union Hall, across from the stadium, beginning at 12 noon with 100.7's Meredith Marx. The fun continues at 3:00 when 100.7's Tailgate Troopers arrive and take the party to around 7. Food, soda and beer will be available."

This is the same place where they have Ravens tailgating events during the football season for Ravens home games.

What the fu@k does "Prolly" mean, Sturmy?
