post game, so far.
Where: Miller Park is the Brewers wonderful new baseball
park. One of the best features of the park is that it has an retractable
roof, so we will not be rained out.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â The huge open parking area, food
pavilion, rest rooms, and hot coals disposal sites, will be ideal for
tailgating. The parking areas are also patrolled by Milwaukee County
Sheriffs during the game, so our MINIs will be well looked after.

Things to bring: Tailgating is always a great time, and it's
even more fun in a MINI. Pack your boot with all your picnic goodies.
Food, drink, and aÃ‚Â mini charcoal grill to cook whatever you bring.
Tailgating is an event.Ã‚Â People typicallyÃ‚Â cook everything fromÃ‚Â hot dogs to
gourmet meals at Miller Park. Pack your mini folding chairs, or sit in the
shade of your boot door. MINI drivers are always friendly, so you may
find someone willing to share a grill. Miller Park has hot coal and tailgate
trash disposal site everywhere on the parking areas.
You may also want to bring an FRS radio to communicate on the
drive there. And of course don't forget to wear your bestÃ‚Â MINI apparel.
Remember you will need $6.00 for parking and stadium cuisine can be
rather expensive so make sure to bring plenty to eat for the
tailgating.Ã‚Â Of course the full line of Miller brewery and it's subsidiaries is
served in the stadium.
If all goes according to plan this could be one of the larger MINI
events in the midwest this year. See you there!
