America's Best Tailgating Cities
East Rutherford, NJ
NFL: New York Giants and New York Jets, MetLife Stadium
Fans of both the Jets and the Giants go big at MetLife, the impressive New Meadowlands stadium which will host Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014. On the Giants side, superfans have been known to convert buses and RVs into tailgating machines complete with flat screen TVs, satellite dishes, gas ranges and even Giants-blue astroturf. On the menu are tailgate standards like chili, jambalaya and crab legs.
As for the Jets, TailgateJoe.com hosts the official tailgate party of JetsNation.com, previewing menus online that feature everything from smoked sausages to fresh cannoli and Brooklyn’s local Kelso beer. Portions of season passes and game-day tickets support Luekemia and Lymphoma Society, too.
