Our tailgate experience is now better than ever, because we joined forces with one of the best tailgate parties at the Coliseum or the entire NFL. The "Bad Boyz of BBQ"
, formerly known as TailgatersBarbecueParty.com. These guys have won several awards, including the Grand Prize at "Supergate I"....the tailgating competition at the 2008 Superbowl in Arizona.Run by "Kingsford Kirk"
, this tailgate party is $25 per person, all you can eat
, lots of great food. Kirk supplies ice chests in which you can keep your beer cold (bring your own beer or other alcoholic drinks....Kirk supplies soft drinks). If you want to eat, you pay the $25 and get a wristband that shows you paid....then it's all you can eat.
This tailgate is frequented by numerous Raider legends
and other Raider fan personalities such as John Vella, Cliff Branch, Raider Jerry, Gorilla Rilla, Toozak, Violator, and more.
We try to get there between 9 and 9:15. Sometimes we're a little later. The lot usually opens around 9.
Remember, we're in the SOUTH (Lot B) parking lot. There are two lots, north (Lot A) and south (Lot B).The tailgate party location
is in the South/East corner of the South lot (Lot B). Way back in the far left corner of the south lot if the Coliseum is to your back, in the R.V. section. There is a little road back there where cars enter this section of the lot. After you cross that road the tailgate is right there, in the back left corner. Look for several motor homes with banners saying, BAD BOYZ OF BBQ or TAILGATERSBARBECUEPARTY.COM. Also look for a large RV trailer that has TV screens on the side. We can catch the morning football games as we tailgate. You can see this trailer here: http://raidernationone.com/Announcements.htmlSEE THE MAP AT THE END OF THIS POST
The north A lot is entered off of 66th Ave. South lot B is entered off of Hegenberger Rd. Your tailgate party is about as far as you can get from the stadium, back in the SE corner of the B lot, in the RV section. There are a lot of buses parked in that area, motor homes, etc. You'll see the Hegenberger overpass dipping down right towards were we are. If you are by the stadium you walk towards the sun to find us. With the stadium to our back we'll be on the far left by that overpass. There is a big mound of dirt there too. Look for a bunch of police cars parked side by side. That's right next to our tailgate party. Greg tries to park next to the police cars if he can get away with it.
By the way, if you are planning to drive and park in the lot, you need to get in line early. Like around 8am or earlier. Otherwise you might not get a space. People get in line and just turn their engines off, because the lots don't open till 9. I would advise against that unless you really have to. There are places you can park outside of the lot.
BART is a good way to get to the Coliseum. That might be your best bet, unless you have to have your car with you.
Look at this map. Sorry it shows Oakland A's....Google Maps must have taken the photo during baseball season. I'll try to replace it with one that shows Raiders on the field later. The map shows approx. where our tailgate party is. Look for the tall banners that say, "Bad Boyz of BBQ".
See Kingsford Kirk's website below. I also posted the link to one of our videocasts that we filmed at their tailgate last year. It is in the 2nd half of the video. Robert Moorehead took the microphone from Greg and was roaming the tailgate talking to Kirk, Raider Jerry and others.http://badboyzofbbq.com/http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bad-Boys-BBQ/103716286330933http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/tag/bad-boyz-of-bbq/Videos:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_LfojgcXuQhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryHT-rUr6bg&feature=youtube_gdata_playerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk21c8Kt9a8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke7L4zuFUjw&feature=youtube_gdata_playerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6mkp9ZYeiYTailgate Warriors
