America's Best Tailgating Cities
NFL: New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium
Freezing weather doesn't deter Patriots fans. "They are committed to the tailgate. It goes on regardless," says Stacy James, a team official. Some fans shuck fresh oysters outside Gillette Stadium, and New England seafood shows up in clam chowder, but "what amazes me," James says, "is to the see the guys with the deep fryers" turning out crispy scallops, shrimp and clams.
