Saints vs. Rams--Hollywood bound - UPDATED Day before game: Location is State Dr. Behind California Science Center)

UPDATED : Saturday, November 25th at 12:40 pm --- LOCATION IS STATE DR. (Right behind the California Science Center and a short walk to the stadium. I want to encourage you all to arrive early. Exposition blvd. closes by 11:25 am.

Tailgate Directions: State Dr. (just off of South Figueroa) No parking here.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/State+Dr,+Los+Angeles,+CA+90037/@34.0165103,-118.2875647,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x80c2c8082c0a5897:0xca8e35c5b9b2d53b!8m2!3d34.0165103!4d-118.285376

IMPORTANT: NO GLASS CONTAINERS ARE ALLOWED. They will confiscate them and give a fine to yours truly. Last year we had a couple of hundred dollars worth of adult beverages confiscated in San Diego. Separately, any handbags must be see through (clear).

Tailgating on State Dr. (RV Lot) No we don't have a RV but alot of room for a great tailgate. State Dr. is reserved for RV's only. I'm told it won't be a problem. If you are not on the group text please send PM.

Note: State Dr. is about 2-3 blocks long and reserved for just RV's. There is a park adjacent to the tailgating(think washer boards, football, etc.)

If any want to drop off ice chest or anything else you can then go park just call me. They are completely sold out for parking in the tailgate sections.

Parking for this game is pricey right around the stadium. Only a few $50 dollar spots left and that's about a block from the stadium. My suggestion is you park away from the stadium (several different spots as you get closer) and Uber or Lyft to State Dr. I just researched and you can park for about $20-$25 away from the stadium maybe a mile or two. Be careful where you park, like any big city the wrong direction could be the wrong idea.

Contact me by text or phone. If you don't have my number please send me a PM.

I'll be arriving by 8 am to get set-up. Tailgating is not open until 8:30 am but it's first come first served.

I'll be bringing several cases of beer, Bloody Mary fixings (vodka, mix, tabasco etc.) ice, a couple of pots of Red Beans and Rice, a couple of pots of Jambalaya, hot dogs, chips, water etc. I'll have New Orleans music (of course Second line and Mardi Gras Music!) It should be a great time.

If you want to bring extra beer great, if not that's okay too. Some have asked if you can contribute that's fine too. The more the merrier. I'm expecting a minimum of 50 people. Last year for the San Diego game we invited 30 people. We had over 100 show up! I wouldn't show up much after 10 am. It will be packed for tailgating.

PM with as many people as you are planning to attend.

Most importantly...WhoDat!


Hi all,

Putting together a thread for the Saints vs. Los Angeles Rams for the end of this month. Right now I've got a group of about 15 that could grow. We will be tailgating. I'm trying to find out where everyone is sitting.

Thank you,
Ed (Cajun Chat)

Just wanted to Thank Ed and everyone else for all the hospitality before the game! There is no better group of fans than the Who Dat Nation! From the bottom of my heart thank you so much for all the great food and drink, it was a pleasure to meet everyone! It’s too bad we couldn’t pull it out today but the tailgate really made our trip!

Thanks everyone!

Hi all. At least the tailgate was epic! It was so good to meet everyone in person. The turnout was awesome by final count about 150 people. It was awesome for Max Unger's parents and family to join us. Good people. Truthfully the tailgate was so much more enjoyable than the game.

Thank you all again and I look forward to seeing you locals in NOLA next week for what is now a critical game in the dome.

WhoDat!

Is there a way to get ahold of the group photos like the big ones? Would love to get them printed out and down up right for my house and to share with my family!

I gotta say, loss aside, it was an incredible atmosphere today. My Dad is now a converted Who Dat, I never thought I would see the day! But it’s thanks to all you wonderful folks! Was truly a pleasure to spend time with you all! Up in Canada I get grilled relentlessly for being a Who Dat!

Dang I've been trying to upload the two big group photos but it's not working for me. If anyone wants a copy of the two group photos from an additional source text me at 9852159354 and I'll send them. Also if you have a copy of the group shots please send them to me as well. Thanks!

Thanks Ed. Had a great time with everyone eating, drinking and BSing! Great job organizing and making sure everyone had a great time.

Completely wiped out. We Left the Bay Area around 6 am Saturday. Got to our hotel around 1 and started eating and drinking. After the game we got on the road around 6 pm. I finally got home at 3 am. Traffic was horrible... Couple of hours of sleep and up for a 6 am conference call. Don't think we will be doing that again, lol.

Anyway, thanks again and hope to run into many of you again.

Great appreciation and props to Ed for putting this together. Speaking as a local, it was no surprise to my wife and me, but still very impressive, that so many members of the Saints family found the time to travel to L.A. for the game. The scoreboard aside, we hope all the out of town visitors had an enjoyable visit to SoCal and that we'll see you again the next time, whenever that might be.

Randy, you are welcome. It was a great time meeting everyone in person. Glad you made it down. I crashed about 8 pm tonight only to wake up and jump back on the board now near midnight.

Time to rebound. Here comes Carolina.
