November 21 Dinner: Red Beans & Rice + Falcons Game!
Okay, that felt pushed.
A friend texted me in the morning saying he had an extra ticket to the Falcons game so I said yes! My first pro game! I’ve actually only ever been to a couple college games, so I’m a live football newbie.
First, we tailgated in the Gulch. For seasoned Falcons fans, they know this is a great place for tailgating. For me, it took some fairly detailed directions before I finally figured out where to meet everyone. After checking my purse - yes, they actually make you check your purse at the Georgia Dome - I headed over to meet everyone.
This was a Falcons - Saints game and several of the folks were from New Orleans, my friend included, so we had red beans & rice for dinner. We got all fancy-like and ate out of Solo cups. It was a lot of fun!
Then the game! A and got to his seats which were not that bad at all! The Falcons lost, which was not surprising given that they were 2-8. But they didn’t lose by much (17-14), which was a surprise, since the Saints were 8-2!
I had a great time and can’t wait to go to another one. Perhaps one on a Sunday next time, though.
