What a game! What a tailgate!! We were set and ready to rock with our traditional "F*** Pittsburgh!" theme and the Cincinnati-style food was in full-effect! Lot 1 wasn't going to open or let us in until about noon, so we set up shop from 10am til noon in the driveway at the Lot's gate. We tailgate in and around the bus, and munched on some killer Goetta breakfast casserole!
Once inside, there was a wide variety of Cincinnati-style food ... including Montgomery Inn ribs (hot off the grill!), a 3-pound Servati's pretzel, LaRosa's pizza, Graeter's Bengals cookies, and so much more!
There was even a custom "Beat Sh*ttsburgh!" cake that tasted FAR better than it may have appeared!
We had a visit from the Cincinnati Enquirer early in the tailgate! They took some video footage and the Who Dey Hero Bus, WhoDeyBaby, & Big John all made the Cincinnati.com video!
We had guests from all over, including Tennessee, Conneticut, & New Jersey! We even gained a couple new regular season ticket holders. In addition, it was one young man's first Bengals game (we'll call him "Mini-WhoDeyBaby!") and few other people's first tailgate!
We had some guests from Pittsburgh drop by ... many of who just didn't feel safe within the confines of the Orange & Black nation. One Bengal fan from Pittsburgh came by a couple times, and her friends (Steeler fans, ugh!) even admitted that Bengal Parties like ours is one of the best reasons to come to Cincinnati for the Bengals & Steelers game ... WHO DEY!
Of course, the Bombs were once again in full-effect! Rounds of Bengal Bombs & Tiger Bombs were enjoyed by all! There was even a deadly drink known offered up as the "Blood of the Steelers!"
When all was said and done, well over 40 people tailgated with us ... and that's not counting those who just stopped by to check things out for a bit! Some of our visiting guests said the tailgate ABSOLUTELY MADE their trip ... And our guest Juan made certain we knew he had nonstop fun from the moment he got there!
