It’s my first cocktail party I’ll be parking in lot XX. Any advice? My wife is about 6 months pregnant so don’t want anything too rowdy

    Congrats! Your about to understand why we scoff at the fans that keep saying it needs to be changed to home/home series. It's one of the best games I've ever attended.

    It's fun, but just know some people get super drunk. Don't be surprised to see fights. We went to Jacksonville Landing one night before the game and my wife nearly got clocked by a Gator going after...wait for it...an FSU fan. If yours is six months pregnant, I'd keep her away from the crowded nightlife. A nice dinner at Commander's Palace is a good alternative and the water taxis are fun, although I ran into a foul-mouthed Gatoress on one of those a few years back. (every one I've ever met is toxic, but this particular specimen was especially nasty)

    Haha no doubt! Yeah I want to avoid the heavy party areas. I’m hoping to get up front for either gameday or sec nation. We’re going to get to Jacksonville early Saturday morning like 1am. So pretty much gonna be gameday festivities.

    Weather should be ok Saturday, but it will be wet Thursday and Friday as Willa moves through the area.

    Yes. The west side of TIAA Bank Field is the home side. This keeps the visitors side in the sun longer as the sun sets.

    Don’t let her partake in the cocktail party..... other than that you in a cocktail or to at the party because it will be a minute before you can attend again.

    Congrats on the kid!
