Hello All.... hoping some of you Saints fans can help me out! We just picked up our tickets to the Jets/Saints game in December and have a few questions about the pregame and Venue.... We are staying about a 15 min walk away so we should be able to be at the Dome pretty early if need be.
What time should we get to Championship Square to tailgate? I was thinking 10, spend an hour doing that then heading into the dome around 11 to get the lay of the land before kickoff. Does that seem reasonable or should we spend a little more time outside before heading in? I’m used to parking lot tailgating at the Meadowlands so I don’t have much experience with a venue “hosted” type of tailgate. What should we expect at the Square? Also are there other good “local” options to pregame besides the Square we may enjoy?
Next question: Our seats are in Loge Corner 212. What type of Club / Lounge Access might we have with those seats? I am sure my wife will need a “break” from my yelling and screaming and would like a place to relax “alone” once or twice during the game. From what I can gather there are a few spots we’ll have access to. Is there one that she may like better then others? She’s fine as long as she has a comfy seat and a beer in her hand so it doesn’t have to be an outlandish fu-fu type of place. The less crowded the better. Neither of us are big fans of the packed bars that are impossible to grab a quick drink in.
And finally, what should we look to check out once inside? I’m guessing there must be a Saints Hall of Fame or something along those lines. Would it be worth a visit? Anything else we should know about?
