I'm going to be bringing a car full of people down from Columbus for the game this weekend, and I've been looking around the internet trying to find some information about the best places to go for tailgating before the game and really have had no luck. So I was wondering if anyone here could help me out with some questions I have;

1. What is the best public lot? I've heard Longworth or the CG-E lot are places to be. Are any of the lots north of third street open for tailgating?

2. What time do these lots fill up? It's a 4:15 kick so we were planning on getting down to Cincy by 12-12:30. Will the public tailgate lots be too full to park in by then?

3. What kind of cost is associated with parking? Is it a per-car basis or per-head?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have never really brought a full car down for serious tailgating. Thanks! Who Dey!
