Got an email this morning I thought I’d share with the class.
I am working on putting a trip together to take my father to his first Georgia home game in almost 40 years. We both currently live in Maryland, and for my dad’s 60th birthday my brother and I are planning to take him to the Nov. 12th game versus Auburn. But my brother and I have never been to Sanford and it’s been so long since my father has been that we don’t know anything about anything. Whether purchasing tickets, finding good seats, getting adequate parking, etc.
Is there a resource(s) you would recommend for information on how best to attend a Georgia home game?
This brings up something I probably should have done a long time ago, with your help: create a page here at GTP that’s basically a shopper’s guide to the game day experience in Athens.
Here’s what I’m inviting y’all to do: In the comments section, please chime in with hints, suggestions, real life experiences and whatever regarding (1) buying single game tickets; (2) parking; (3) where you prefer to sit at Sanford Stadium; (4) places in Athens where you like to eat and/or imbibe before and after football games; (5) where you shop for Dawg paraphernalia; (6) tailgating locations; (7) things and places to avoid; and (8) any other miscellaneous items you think are noteworthy to take in to make for an enjoyable day in Athens.
After the dust settles, I’ll try to organize everyone’s suggestions into a coherent form and post it on a page as a permanent resource.
