Time for regular season tailgating to begin. Opening up with the SB champion Green Bay Packers with good weather. So glad to have Ranucci's Big Butt BBQ (www.ranuccis.com) start the season off fresh from a first place win last weekend at the Blues, Brews and BBQ festival in Charlotte. This food is the best food that will be offered all year hands down. We are thankful to have him sponsor this tailgate and please consider him for all your catering needs and dine at his new restaurant. He is bringing his 16 ft. catering 'big rig' trailer for this tailgate.

Please be one of the first to try his new restaurant in Belmont, NC. It is located at 403 E. Catawba St., Belmont, NC 28012. Their phone number is 704-825-4472. Swing by and get some food to take home or pick up a catering order.

The Huddle has been fortunate to have generous sponsors every game to provide free food and non-alcoholic drinks to everyone that shows up. In return the people that partake leave a donation that, because of the sponsors, 100% goes towards a year end bike donation to Toys for Tots. We’re talking upwards of $20,000 and 600 bikes to date have been donated to the Marine Corps Reserve during this time.

This week’s fare will consist of competition quality BBQ, smoked wings, slaw, baked beans, large lima beans, chips, boiled peanuts, turds, and whatever else shows up. There will be breakfast served (country ham biscuits) as well. Here's the usual info:

Where: We are located at the intersection of 3rd st. and Poplar. We are located in a large parking lot that borders 3rd, Poplar, and Church st. congregating at 3rd and poplar right beside the lower entrance to the lot. Look for the carolinahuddle.com banners, tents, and loud music. You will see Ranucci's big cooking rig there as well. The lot is across 3rd street from Picasso's restaurant and bar.

What: Food, music, drinks (non-alcoholic) and friendly Panthers fans. 5 tents to beat the heat. If you drink alcohol you have to bring it yourself and provide your own cooler because its hard enough to keep our own drinks cold on summer days.

When: We’ll start at 6am this week. Maybe earlier. If you get there after 12:15 there's no guarantee any food will be left. Most of us are trying to get in the game as well so we can't stay back and cook for you, miss kickoff, if you get there late.

Who: Around 50 fans all somehow connected to this website.

How much: The parking lot is $25 to park there but you don’t have to park in the lot to tailgate with us. Many take the light rail for a few dollars and walk down or park a few blocks back for cheaper and just walk up.

When you show up and partake, please donate as much as you can to our cause. It’s a labor of love for us, but at the end of the day don’t discount what you saved by not bringing your grill, food, drinks, etc. and what it would cost you for a day of tailgating, shopping, and energy cooking. Remember 100% of your donation goes to charity. Hard to find many others that claim that nowadays. If we had to pay full price for this tailgate it would cost $12/person. Please don't travel all the way downtown, pay $60 or more for tickets, get a double plate of competition quality BBQ with sides and just throw a few ones in the bucket. That's crap.

Disclaimer: There will probably be loud music. The Huddle does not police adult behavior at tailgates so while kids have a blast at tailgates, we can’t be responsible for what they may see or hear during the time. Remember if you drink alcohol you’re responsible for bringing your own and keeping it cool.
Any other questions this is the thread to ask.

Does the word "turds" have a different meaning in other parts of the country?

good luck with the fishing....hope they are biting.

Nothing worse than bobbing in the middle of the ocean while not catching anything.

What do you fish for if I might ask?

I have no idea yet. My buddys FIL had the same conditions a few weeks ago and caught 30 fish. So he saw the forecast for this weekend and told us to come down. I think it's going to be near shore. Maybe Mackerel?
