 Welcome to the THE RAZOR'S EDGE TAILGATE!   Once again, it looks like another season of Tailgate Roulette due to  the construction of Patriot Place and the continuing changes of the property surrounding the staduim.    Our intent is to remain at our location along the pedestrian walkway where we've been set up for the past couple of seasons, however it is considerably smaller this year. (The lot, accessible from Entrance P2 is now called Lot 3. See below for details.)  Although the  sites may change, our philosophy and open door (ok...tent) policy remains the same. Our merry band of Patriot faithful include a group of "regulars" but we always welcome the company of fellow Patriot fans (and those of opposition as well).  Generally, people show up with their gear and food but we welcome anyone to stop in and join us with or without supplies and rations.  There is always plenty to go around and for those that insist on contributing "something" we have set up a donation bin for Charity. 100% of the money collected this year will be donated to the Tedy's Team  See below for more info.

Tailgate crew 09/09/02 Inaugural Game at Gillette Stadium

As all hard core Pats fans know, Patriot Sundays are not just about the game; rather the entire experience of the event!  So, the pre-game and post-game tailgates are an important component in the success of a Full Tilt Full Time Pats Experience. 

  Al and I tailgate with Zip and crew each week and partake in all of the rituals that it entails.  Of course, the company is a lock, the Bruschi Brew is a given, Monty's post game steak tips are always welcome (and  according to some, so is my cold weather chili and warm weather linguini and clams....)  We arrive early and stay late; partake in  the merriment, consume far too much food and drink ... (hmmmmm.... do Jello shots qualify as a food or a drink??), share Pats talk and camaraderie.

 Naturally, being the social butterfly that I am, I flit from place to place with nary a closed jaw.... Al mans the grill whilst I  provide the "hot air" on a cold day and catch up with all my buds, scoring hugs along the way.... At this point, my shy guy has joined forces with the regulars and he and Monty can often be seen indulging in the weekly flavor of premium cee-gars.  (I'll stick with sampling the latest microbrew, thank you very much!)

    The outcome of the game is never a guarantee, although if you ask Zip or Karen, a Pats win is always predicted!  But, one thing is for certain, regardless of the score we all leave Foxboro having enjoyed the most excellent company and  companionship of friends.... something that cannot be dampened even by a Pats loss (which doesn't happen often!  Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Directions To Entrance P2
Now called LOT 3 (2007)
 

From the North:

(If you get there too early they may not have the cones set up yet to allow traffic to travel "on the wrong side of the road" to get into the lot. If so, you'll need to go past the entrance, do a U-Turn on Rt. 1 and enter from the South.)

From the South:

 

 Continue on Rt.1 North past the stadium and enter P2 on your right.

The Lot:  As of 2007 is not called LOT3 (formally called Explorer Lot)

 Our goal is to set up along the grass at the pedestrian walkway between Lots 3 and 4.   

Parking and Grounds Map PDF

 

 Look for our tailgate setup which looks like this:

If they don't let us set up along the grass,  look within the first few rows since we're early birds and will be close to the front of the lot.

Best bet... drop me an email and I'll give you my cell phone so that we may hook up :-)

 

Our core group meets off site to insure that we arrive together and have enough space to set up the tents.   We are back to meeting up at the Dunkin Donuts on Rt. 1 NORTH of the stadium  1/2 hour prior to the scheduled lot opening.

Charity Information

 The Razorís Edge Tailgate has selected Tedyís Team as their Charity of  choice once again for the 2007 Tailgate Season. This year we are choosing, as we did last year,  to join our efforts towards Tedy Bruschi's Charity, Tedy's Team, in our Game Day Collections.  After his stroke and recovery efforts, Tedy dedicated his philanthropic efforts towards joining forces with the American Stroke Association.  Strokes are the leading cause of disability and third leading cause of death in the United States.  There are innumerable worthy charities and we cannot reasonably aid them all but we believe we have selected a worthy option and ultimately hope that by doing what we enjoy, tailgating for Patriots game-day, we are able to bring about a little help to one worthy cause.

I have spoken with the Charity Director and they are glad for any of our efforts and exceedingly supportive of our Full Tilt - Full Time crew.  Please feel free to review the considerable information on their Website at: www.strokeassociation.org/tedysteam

Tedyís Team focuses on organizing two charity runs a year (the Boston Marathon and the Falmouth Classic), and all of the donations are sent to support the American Stroke Association. All of our donations will go directly to the American Stroke Association through Tedyís Team.

As always our Tailgate remains an open place of welcome, hospitality, revelry and Patriotic Fervor.  There is always food, beverage and friendship to be shared by the many guests and members of the Razor's Edge.  The Donation bin is always present and while we do urge you to consider that as a method of appreciation for the offerings, it is by no means a requirement.  Hopefully we can exceed all past efforts on all fronts.  Please do share the knowledge of the charity with the friends you bring to us and if you ever have trouble finding it please do ask as we try to ensure it is very visible but as the tailgate ranks swell on occasion this can be challenging.

Thank you as always, and now, letís get ready for some Football!
