    Bring some cash.

    Between the beer, parking, and the snacks (and maybe merch?), you'll probably be spending quite a bit of Monday that day.

    Be prepared to have cash, just in case cards aren't accepted in a weird instance.

    Otherwise, people tailgate for a reason! Join the party!

    Carrying something? Make sure it's clear.

    Seriously. Ladies, if you're bringing a small clutch, it doesn't have to be clear - anything bigger should be clear or it will be confiscated. Guys, remember your ID.

    Here are some other items you're permitted to bring (and some you aren't).
