    Tailgating has begun...

    ...for the Buffet concert.

    I drove into downtown for work this morning past the parking lot at Wells Fargo Arena. This was before 8:00am and the parking lot already had several groups tailgating. A block south, Buzzard Billy’s had their parking blocked off and set up for “pre-show Buffet party” to start yet this morning. A few blocks south on Court Avenue, Mickey’s Irish Pub already had their patio bar open.

    Should be an “interesting” scene by the time the show starts tonight.

    The price of ridiculous looking Hawaiian shirts in Des Moines has tripled.

    Re: Tailgating has begun...

    I'm not going to this show tonight, but did hit his concert at Alpine Valley, WI about 6 years ago. Tailgating was crazy. Made our ISU tailgates look like a church picnic. I've never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but I can't imagine getting much more of an eye full than what I saw pre-concert that day. Can't believe it will be quite as crazy in DM, but makes me wonder.

    I work with a guy who's gone to a few of his concerts over the years. He makes it seem like people go all out for the tailgates.

    Re: Tailgating has begun...

    Saw a few of them in Hessen Haus after work. They were pretty easy to pick out but it took me a second to figure out why it was so busy in there.
