Time for game 2 of the regular season tailgating and the Giants come to town for a primetime matchup. The Huddle will mark its 9th season of putting on a donation tailgate with all proceeds going to Toys for Tots at the end of the year. Members of the Huddle have donated well over $20,000 and over 600 bikes to Toys for Tots over the years. Every single game over 8 seasons have been sponsored by posters and companies alike and this year is fully sponsored as well. Posters or companies sponsor all the food and non-alcoholic drinks and fans come and partake while leaving a donation in the bucket. 100% of all monies used to purchase bikes donated to Toys for Tots at stadium.

This weeks sponsor is WebFullCircle. This is the 2nd of 3 tailgates they will sponsor this season and we are thankful for them helping out in this capacity. Please visit www.webfullcircle.com for all your search engine optimization, website design, Ecommerce, google local and any other web related needs your company desires. Call them at 980-322-0518 to find out how they can help your business excel with any of their services. www.webfullcircle.com

This week's food is provided by Joel's Pizzeria located at 5668 International Dr. in Charlotte, NC 28270. Phone them at 704-200-2617 if you're in the south Charlotte area near Providence Rd. Open at 11 am 7 days a week. The food this week will consist of various NY thin crust style pizzas and various pasta dishes including Fettuccini w/chicken, spaghetti/meat sauce, baked ziti, and salad. The owner will deliver the food personally around 5:30pm fresh from the restaurant. Please be sure to thank him if you see him there.

Here is the usual info, and any other questions about the tailgate please direct to this thread:

Where? WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR DUE TO DEMOLITION OF THE OLD LOT. WE ARE LOCATED AT A LARGE LOT AT THE INTERSECTION OF TRYON, 3RD ST, AND CHURCH. WE WILL HAVE TENTS WITH A HUDDLE BANNER ON IT. Basically if you walk into the lot from Tryon St, you will run right into us.

What? Lots of good food and non-alcoholic drinks. BYOB if you want to drink your own booze. Tents for rain or for shade provided as well as chairs for people that need them.

When? We start at 4pm this Thursday. Get there early for the good food and to hang out with other Panthers fans like yourself.

Who? Anywhere from about 50 faithful fans who show up every game over the course of the day to another 50 stragglers and newbs. You never know who will show up and opposing fans are certainly welcome. If you have no other place to tailgate and want to maximize the gameday experience this certainly kicks ass over just pulling your car up to the stadium an hour before and walking in. You'll get better food here than any heat lamped fries or pretzels you'll get in the stadium and have a good time tailgating no matter what the score is for the game.

Any other questions this is the thread to ask in.

I'll come by for sure. Staying at the Blake downtown, me and my brother are looking for some Carolina hospitality. First panther game for both of us, coming all the way from Texas. Thanks for the open invitation.

What time will the lots be available being that it is a work day? We typically park @ 3rd & Church as well, and was curious what time this lot was set to open up for tailgaters.

I don't know what time it officially opens.......probably 4 hrs. before kickoff. We use 5-6 spots with tents and such. Sometimes on days like this we start with 2 spots and just grow as the car beside us leaves.
