Something new for FC Dallas fans this season before each home game.
New for all 2012 FC Dallas Games is Lamar's Tailgate Party.
Here's the details that the club handed over to me:
It starts 90 minutes before first kick (so 12:30 p.m. for March 11) on the North Concourse and features BBQ, street tacos and other food. Even better - different food and drink specials prior to every game.
The fun continues on the Budweiser Beer Garden with live music, pool ball (think soccer and billiards mixed together on a giant pool table), Bud promo girls, prizes, and more food and drink specials extended through the whole game.
The culmination of the tailgate party is the return of the scarfing ceremony of the Lamar Hunt statue. Each game will have a special guest doing the scarfing.
For the New York Red Bulls game there will be vuvuzelas to the first 5,000 fans.
No official word if the March is gone for this season but from the sound of it, this will be how things get started before each game.
