Okay - IT'S GOIN' DOWN TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY! Is anyone else getting pumped?
Parking info: We will be gathering (get it?) in Gold Lot #2 which, if I'm not mistaken, opens at 11:00. The price for parking goes up after 12:30, IIRC .. we park at the far back right-side corner, close to the sidewalk, so we can put up the canopy (canopies are not allowed in the lot itself). The EARLIER you can get there, the better, as we can form a "Gathering" section / blockade.
There's an illustration in above link - park along BACK CORNER, next to North Shore Drive
I've also (in the comments below) asked a few of you if you are going to be bringing anything to "add to the pot" - please try to bring something, anything. F'rinstance - NOBODY has signed up to bring condiments - ketchup, MUSTARD, relish, onions, salsa, hot sauce(s), salt and pepper, etc. to go on the brats & dogs. Maybe one of you can do that. I know money's tight for everyone right now (oh, boy, do I know it!), but that's why everyone's bringing a little something - it adds up! It doesn't have to be anything extravagant - if you wanna pick up some stuff on the way - pretzels, peanuts, Cracker Jack - instead of cooking n'at... that's fine!
That said, if you are unable to bring anything, it's okay - we understand.. Don't kill yourself trying to bring something if it will cause any hardship. The most important thing you can bring is YOU, with a smiling face, ready to talk Bucs baseball and have one HELL of a time!

So let's concentrate on what we're bringing - anybody make a special potato salad, or fabulous side dish? Do your friends and family drool over your dolmas? Start thinking, start posting - let's get the cornucopia completed!
WHAT WE HAVE SO FAR:
lfhlaw - Grill / burgers / buns / cooler
Cocktailsfor2 - batch of Bloody Caesars / beers / 1 extra chair
IAPF - Cooler / ice / water / soda (TBD)
War Machine - trash bags, plates, forks etc.
bdeff - Nathan's hot dogs and buns / baked beans / card table
dr _roxtar - canopy YES! Thank you!
JSteelers86 - Beanbag (Cornhole) / chips / snickety snax
BurgherKing - Brats / Softballs (anybody got any extra gloves?)
stanbelinda - BEER
Beezy - Home-brewed BEER (and man, does he do it right, kids!)
Steelreign - Cooler / ice / water
PghPinstripes - Card Table / 2 Chairs / Cooler / ice / Water / the Cap’n / Coke (diet)
ryebr3ad - chips / Lacee
Yung-Han - cooler / water / ice / chips
In my estimation, we're still in need of one more coolers / water / ICE / and some more side dishes (salad / slaw?)...
We'd liketa see more people signing up to bring stuff - even if it's just a coupla bags of chips or summat - it doesn't have to be elaborate... and again, if you can bring a table or some chairs, that's a BIG help.
REMINDER: Sunscreen is a MUST!!!
I have a question for any of the locals - Mrs. Cocktailsfor2 and I are staying thru the weekend, and going to KENNYWOOD on Monday, the 23rd to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary! Does anyone have any source for discount tickets to the park?
