Forget about setting up those kegs or buffet tables in the parking lot before this season's Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. There will be no tailgating. On Monday the Super Bowl committee CEO (Al Kelly) said fans would be allowed to have food in their cars and "have drink" in their cars ... and "provided you're in the boundaries of a single parking space, you'll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However, you're not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you're not going to be able to take out a grill, and you're not going to be able to take up more than one parking space. And it'll all be watched very carefully."
... But most fans probably won't be parking near the stadium anyway. There will be fewer than 13,000 parking spots available for fans. The committee will charter buses called the Fan Express, which will cost $51 and pick up and drop off passengers at nine locations around the region. Fans can also take New Jersey Transit to the MetLife Stadium stop or be dropped off by vehicles that must have parking passes.
... And hiring a black car, taxi or limo won't be an option for VIPs who will spend thousands of dollars per ticket. No cars will be allowed near the stadium on game day without parking passes, and any car that drops off a passenger will have to wait at the stadium.
... Fans who had considered parking farther from the stadium and getting there on foot will not be allowed to enter. WHAT?! Kelly said: "You cannot walk to the Super Bowl. You can get your hotel to drop you off at one of the New Jersey Transit locations or get the shuttle to take you to a Fan Express location, but you cannot walk."
