This week the Bucs come to town for a 1pm matchup. The Huddle continues its 9th season of putting on a donation tailgate with all proceeds going to 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 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 week's tailgate is sponsored by Sharp Business Systems.

This week's fare is a staple and fan favorite Ranuccis BBQ and Grill. Please visit www.ranuccis.com for any of your catering needs or visit his restaurant. This week's fare will include BBQ with all the fixin's as well as brunswick stew to warm the day up.

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 8am Sunday. Get there early for the good food and to hang out with other Panthers fans like yourself.

Who? During the course of the day from 6am, usually 50 people pass through. 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'm tempted to come just for the food. That was one of the best things about the saints game. Sadly, my in laws decided to schedule their daughter's first birthday during the game. As if I already didn't dislike them.

Alex will not be available for this game, he is just providing the food. I could do the turds no problem....but would need a smoker since they cannot go on direct heat. Alex will be in person for the next home game Dec. 9th. If somebody wants to bring down a smoker, then we can do turds this Sunday.
