I am visiting NYC in October with my boyfriend, and by sheer luck, his favourite team are playing against the NY Jets on his birthday the same weekend we are there! Naturally I have bought him tickets, but I am wondering about how to make the day more enjoyable for him.
I myself am a sports fan, but not very clued up on NFL yet (though I am learning!) and wanted to know the best approach on meeting other NFL fans at a tailgating party.
Is it easily signposted where to go for tailgate parties? Are there specific areas we need to avoid? (whilst my boyfriend is very well behaved, he probably will be wearing an away shirt)
Does anyone have any tips to approach people and join in with the festivities? I am not in the habit of just walking up and asking for burger/beer, so what is the best approach?
I did think to maybe bring some Cadbury Chocolate with me or similar 'British snacks' to share around, but would people like/appreciate that or will we be seen as 'Silly English Tourists' and be told to go on our way?
Any advice you can provide will be much appreciated.
