Figures a Marine would be where the action is!
For Whaler Fest a couple of years ago, Red lot was where all the parking was. At night it was like wind chills below zero! Walking to the stadium was like the longest walk of my life that night!!
That must of been where all the Pesky Beaver was....
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT MY FRIEND. The kids did me in as well! Now I have to PRETEND to be that responsible Dad out there. The Bad Lands is the place I no longer speak of..
As a visitor the Aero Club is awesome. Cheap, grassy fields, heated indoor bathroom...and quick escapes out the back. Within walking distance of two motels too. In fact I rate the Aero Club the best visiting lot in the Big East for visiting fans and gameday cash lot for locals.
My impression of the blue lot walking in from the Aero Club was it kinda sucked. Way too many cars in too small of a place. No thanks.
Mark you dont have any other angles for your avatar do you???? Bcuz that would make you the coolest kid on the block if you were willing to share!
Started in Red Lots when they were just across street and over the knoll from where the white/suites parking is - have migrated now into Blue Lot.
Pros - easiest driving access and egress from any "major" stadium I've been too. Quick access to stadium gates. Less "amateur drinking" and bravado. Love early fall mornings w/ a cocktail, hearty breakfast, college game day on the radio and a few sports pages to peruse.
Cons - having to retrain the parking attendants each year!! They make it so damn difficult and it can be tight w/ back to back tents. BeeGee/Barry Manilow music
Miss parking on the top level of the parking garage (or second from top if weather was crappy) @ Memorial as well.
I miss the original parking setup for the Rent. Parking on the old airstrips. Yeah it made leaving the game a nightmare but it was unique and fit the feel of where the stadium was built. I thought that was really cool. However, thinking more on it, I think I really hated leaving because people were always walking behind your cars as you were trying to leave and it was a nightmare.....It's always interesting to see what they do with parking. I feel like Red lot gets moved to a new place every year!
As for getting to a game this year I'm gonna try my hardest but I've already told the wife that we're going to the Michigan game no matter what. Knowing my luck it'll get cancelled! She's not so keen on bringing a newborn to a game this year so we'll see if this year happens or not.
While I totally disagree with the comments of lack of eyecandy in Blue Lot (I've seen tons of young lovelies there), I will defend to the death with absolute conviction that Blue Lot offers the best tailgates on site with astounding varieties of menu items.
Is there still a gold lot? A few years back friends of ours gave is their passes for the USF game in the snow/slush. Best spot ever. Some guy was selling cigars, don't see that in Red Lot!

Yup... and the Cigar guy comes through the Blue lot as well.
Yes, gold lot is still there. My favorite of the bunch. Easy access in/out of the stadium and adjacent to Blue if you want to tailgate hop. Tons of room as well. You're not getting the same volume of "candy" as red lot, but great spot if you are with your wife/family and a good group of friends.
Blue is my home... we get 3-5 cars to trek in together, which leaves us space to tailgate and play games... easy in and easy out, tailgate hopping.

Where did you get that picture of my tailgate?
My girlfriend is standing up 4th from the right in that
Holy God! That is the best UConn football picture ever!!!!
