We will be in town this weekend for the divisional race Cards/Reds games. Anyone on here able to recommend a place that would be good for tailgating/grilling/cornhole before the game?

Tailgating is pretty much non-existant at Reds games. You might want to check out the In Between Tavern. I believe their patio has a cornhole game.

How about the lot near Paul Brown Stadium?

Thanks Chip, I was afraid of that. We may try the whole Covington bars/ferry ride thing. Do they still run the ferry or was the info I was reading outdated? Thanks for your help, not real familiar with Cincinnati.

Hooters does the ferry thing. Takes you right to the landing and back to Hooters for $5, I think.

I have tailgated there before two games in the past. One this year and one last year. I don't know if you are allowed/supposed to do so, but no one has said anything to me in the past. I would go for it. Having a few brats and beers before Reds games is a good way to kick it off.

Newport on the levee has a whole slew of restaurants/bars/pubs and you can take the $1.25 shuttle or just walk over on the purple bridge right outside.

Just go ahead and do it. Start a tradition. Pull your RV into the lot and put your sofa chairs outside with big screen tv's and start grilling.

I've been to:

In Between Tavern (across from the Stadium)
Hoffbrahaus (across river in Newport, KY) - personal favorite
Bulldog's (Newport)
Sully's (a few blocks up on Race street) - I think it's closed now

just to name a few. Great places for a few suds. I'd reccomend walking around newport for a couple minutes and picking from any of those places..

Covington Mainstrasse has Maifest this weekend. Parking will be at a premium.

How did it work out? Did you end up tailgating before the game? :)

You can tailgate at Longworth Hall. It's an easy 5 block walk. You just turn left out of the lot, walk past Bengals stadium, and go about a block and walk up stairs, you're right there.

The flyer said the restaurant at Longworth Hall is having its opening and for $10 you can park, or tailgate, listen to live music, and get some free food.

Grecos is the new restaurant and the number is 513 721 FOOD. But I'm sure you can just show up and tailgate as they'll have some one at the parking booth.

Longworth is lit a night so it's nice to not have to trip in gravel.

Mike, are you working for Grecos? You just signed up and the only two posts you have made are about tailgating there, on threads that haven't been talked about for 2 years.

No need to go to Newport or Covington ... the fun stuff is on the Cincinnati side. And, if you want to tailgate, the surface lot adjacent to PBS would be perfect. It's a big Bengals tailgate lot and there's no reason you wouldn't be able to set up shop before a Reds game either.

If not that, there's always Holy Grail, Toby Keith's, Moerlein Lager House and it's huge lawn, InBetween and other places. The days of Newport being the fall-back place to go before/after games are over.

It is very good information any way you look at it. :thumbup:

Thought I would bump this for the Reds upcoming weekend and Playoff games. :)

Last year before game 5 of the playoffs, there were people tailgating in the outside lot east of the East Garage on Pete Rose Way. (Same side as the East Garage.)

Topping an oldie but a goodie.

I went to only one game at GABP last year and a couple the year before being an out of towner. Has the tailgate situation changed at all? Any scene what so ever in the lot between GABP & PBS?

I'm coming with 8 guys total as part of a bachelor party in Cincinnati this weekend and the majority of the group would rather bring the grill/cornhole boards/etc and tailgate in the lots rather than hit a bar pregame.

Just wanted to check in and see what the scene has been like the past couple years and see if the tailgating is allowed.

If you decide to tailgate, let me know. I'll be out of town, but I have a large buddy of mine from Noblesville IN who might want to make an appearance right around first pitch and tell you losers to pack it up and head into the game.
