By now you are probably pretty well aware that the NFL has banned tailgating at the Super Bowl. They claim they haven’t banned it but when the NFL outlawed open flames/grilling and any type of pop-up tents, they essentially told tailgaters to take a hike.
Two years ago Jay “the Tailgate Guy” DiEugenio came up with the concept of Super Gate. It is basically a large multi-day tailgate party that gathers many of the hard core tailgaters from all over the country and brings them together in the Super Bowl host city. Even though the location of the two previous Super ‘Gates have been off-site and away from the host stadium the event has seen growth from year No. 1 to year No. 2.
Super ‘Gate III is scheduled to hit South Florida because this year’s Super Bowl will be at Land Shark Stadium in Miami. The location of Super ‘Gate III is Parking Lot F at 21297 NW 27th Avenue in Miami Gardens, Fla. (That’s less than two miles away from Land Shark Stadium.) Reserved spaces are already going on sale with a number of the premium spots already claimed. Some very good spaces still remain but they too may be gone if you wait too long.
We got in touch with Jay “the Tailgate Guy” DiEugenio and asked if we could offer those readers of TailgatingIdeas.com a special discount when they reserve a space. Jay thought it was a great idea so if you register for Super ‘Gate III through a special link on TailgatingIdeas.com, you will get a 10% discount on your tailgating space. Enter coupon code “TGIdeas_SGIII” (without the quotation marks, of course) when making your reservation and your discount will automatically apply. You can also click this link, Super ‘Gate III: The Super Brawl of Tailgating and the discount code will automatically be entered into the correct area for you. All you have to do is pick your spot, reserve it and you will be a part of Super ‘Gate III.

— Premium Site is a 30′ x 50′ space to camp & tailgate for 3 days and includes a premium location, 1 dump, 1 fill, and 30 amp electric hookup included. If you tailgate with an RV or a converted bus, this is the type of space you want to reserve.

Also, there is a special incentive to registering early. They are offering a “First In” Upgrade that ends November 16, 2009. The “First In” Upgrade entitles you to come early and set-up on Thursday rather than the regular Friday check-in. Plus, you’ll get to attend a private party “for First Ins only” hosted by Jay “The Tailgate Guy” aboard the legendary “Mullet” on Thursday night. Limited quantity available and the offer ends 11/16/09. It pays to book early so you can set up early.
