UPDATE 9/22 – We are SOLD OUT for this week’s tailgate. Please check back for information on future tailgates! We’ll see you Sunday!
Beer. Barbecue. NFL Football.
On Sunday, September 27th, 2015, the New York Jets will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, in a live rematch of many Madden games played by students at Penn State. Before the celebration kicks off, join us for an all you can eat and drink tailgate including . . .
1.) Some amazing BBQ cooked up by the famous Tailgate Joe.
2.) Unlimited beer (also provided by the aforementioned Tailgate Joe).
3.) Free Games – cornhole, beer pong, Kan Jam, and more.
Thousands of people have joined us for our tailgates over the past two years, and the results have been spectacular. You can check out the pictures from our previous tailgates here, here, and here. A ticket and tailgate is $124 and tailgate-only is $49. Children less than 34 inches tall do not need tickets for the game or tailgate, and children 13 and under will pay half-price for the tailgate portion of the package (just ask us before you purchase). Past tailgates have sold out, so get your tickets now. Prices may increase as the day of the tailgate draws nearer.
9:00am – All You Can Eat & Drink Tailgate
Tailgate set-up will be at a parking lot at Metlife Stadium. Fans can use Metro North or NJ Transit Rail Service to make their way to the stadium, or may purchase a parking pass and drive to the parking lots. No need to worry about packing a small SUV with coolers and your tiny grill. This is an all you can eat & drink, stress-free affair, including beer pong, cornhole, and more. Check out the menu below.
12:45pm – Last Call and Head To Stadium
Before heading into the Stadium, we’ll polish off the rest of the food and beer. Everyone will have picked up their tickets at check-in for the tailgate, and we’ll briefly part ways before re-convening inside Metlife Stadium.
1:05pm – Kick Off
Game Starts. The TickPick group will be sitting in the upper level endzone. We expect to attract a split crowd between Jets and Eagles fans, which means we’ll have a very rowdy bunch up in the stands. We’ll cheer as loud as possible for our respective teams, and try our absolute best to not get kicked out. Beers will be a lot more expensive inside the stadium, but we’ll have a comfortable buzz from the TickPick Tailgate and will be able to nurse one or two Silver Bullets until the 4th quarter. That’s how TickPick rolls at a football game.
- Grilled Taylor Ham sandwiches, a New Jersey delicacy
- Burgers, you know we have the best burgers in the lot, a custom Pat Lafrieda blend of brisket, shortrib, and chuck. Lafrieda is the source of the best burgers in NYC!
- Joe’s award winning chili dogs. Try one and tell me it ISN’T the best chili dog you have ever had!
- Mom’s Meatball Sliders, these are the meatballs I grew up eating every Sunday.
- BBQ Baked Beans

On Tap chillin’ in the kegerator:
- Kelso of Brooklyn Pilsner

TickPick’s Jets vs Eagles Tailgate Location
We are currently planning on setting up in the E-10 Lot. We will be there as soon as the lots open at 8:00 am, and the tailgate will officially begin at 9:00 am.
Directions by Car – Punch this address into the GPS:
50 Route 120
East Rutherford, NJ 07073
Once you enter the parking ring, just follow the signs for the E Lot.
Directions via NJ Transit – Trains will begin dropping fans off at Metlife Stadium no earlier than 9:54 am. Trains arrive only from the Secaucus Junction stop.
Directions via Bus –
The 161 bus out of Port Authority runs every 45 minutes throughout the morning, and drops you off on the other side of the stadium at the intersection of “W PERIPHERAL RD and ROAD D,” just ask the bus driver if you’re on the bus towards Metlife Stadium.
The 7:50 am train will get you to the tailgate by 8:20, and the 8:35 am train will get you there by 9:05. The bus departs from Gate 406, click here for the schedule. It’s a solid 10 minute walk from the bus stop to the E Lot, so pace yourself and don’t start sprinting as soon as you step off the bus, you’ll never make it alive. Hold hands with a friend and prepare for a trek.
The 351 Express bus out of Port Authority is the superior option for those who are looking to arrive at 10 am or later. The 351 line will begin departures at 9:30 am and will drop you off at the K Lot. The 351 Express bus can be boarded at Gate 207, click here for the website.
