The Phils are opening a series with the Nationals in DC, so you know what that means, road trips and tailgate parties! If anyone is coming down, let us know and you can join in the festivities. Commenters have already hatched some plans last week, and below are the details for the official Phillies Nation tailgate party for Wednesday’s game. For those that will be stuck in Philly this week, don’t worry, we have something in store for you too.
Wednesday Night – Tailgate Party at Phils-Nats game in DC
The Phillies meet up with the Nationals in the second game of the three game series on August 15 at 7:05 pm. Rookie sensation Kyle Kendrick (5-2, 3.75) takes on Tim Redding (1-3, 2.86) and the rest of the Washington ballclub that is looking to move out of the NL East cellar. We will be tailgate starting at 5:30 pm outside the stadium – looking at this map of the RFK parking lots, we are planning the party for Lot 3. If you can’t find the swath of people having fun in Howard-Utley ’08 shirts, call me for directions at 215-510-0704. Booze and food will be provided as well a Phillies Nation gear for a lucky few.
