    Admins please pin this. Thanks.

    Hey gang I'm the head person in charge for getting the next home game tailgate together and wanted to get the ball rolling. With the teams recent success (and hoped for continuation with a good showing hopefully at Clemson), thought it would be wise to get an early jump on numbers as we may have quite a few. I'm catering most of this one so an accurate head count will be vital and helpful so if you plan on going please let me know here in this thread (I'll drop a link too on the football board).

    This seasons MVP Justin (Cusenewbie) will be getting the most important task done with the beer and other beverages. As always it's $10/person for all one can eat and drink.

    Tentative list of delicacies so far is as follows:

    Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts/muffins
    Sausage, peppers, and onion Egg frittata
    Chicken Francaise
    Chicken Riggies the above with crusty Italian bread
    String beans with mushrooms
    A vat of Italian Wedding soup
    The ever present Hoffmanns Coneys

    As it's an early game in November to boot it will likely be cold so we will be breaking out all the equipment we've gathered over the years. Two heated carpeted tents with sides. Everyone who has a canopy including myself should bring it, I'll have 3 various sized tables and a couple more would be helpful. Everyone should bring extra chairs. I don't think we'll need the monster grill for this one. Jeremy please bring the tunes box.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting something so this will be a work in progress. So, again, if you're planning on going please respond here along with the total numbers in your group. Thanks everyone and Go Orange!!

    EDIT: The tailgate should be up and set up by 830 but the real food set up and layout won't be ready til 9am.

    Sounds like an outstanding menu and knowing you there's at least 1 or 2 more items that will pop up on that list. Count me in for at least 4 at this point. My better half has indicated she will be making a dessert for the game, perhaps a cake if I can talk her into it. Assuming low temps will see about breaking out the adult spiced cider for the first time this year. Sounds like were in a great tailgate.

    I have the tunes box. I can bring my canopy and hopefully can find the sides. Also have a heater. Have plates, napkins and paper towels if needed. Will have the usual 3.

    I will be there. Not sure if 1 or 2. Definitely 1. Coming from AZ. Today is the first day not in the 90s or higher. It is a cool 80 right now. Getting me prepped for my trip back east tomorrow. 80s-40s no big deal, yeah right. So save me a spot in a heated tent. And don't laugh if I look like I never lived in upstate NY before. I will be freezing. The blood thins very quickly.

    Got two for me. I also have some buns left over from last tailgate in the freezer that I can bring. I have a canopy and a couple of tables to bring if you still need them. I think I have some mustard and ketchup as well. Will you need the chafing dishes?

    Cool. Re the tailgate stuff, won't need the chaffing dishes since it's being catered. No need for the buns they got it covered.
