My husband and I were just at the Monday night game against the Ravens!!!! It was only our second time to Heinz Field. The first was a quick in, to the game and out again. This time, we spent the day....got there around noon....found a parking lot about a 5 minute walk behind Heinz field...there were a few tailgaters there but the lot was essentially empty.....we walked to Jerome Bettis' Resturant and had lunch....and the others weren't kidding, the city was already starting to turn into one big tailgating party that early in the day!!!! We got back to the lot and around 3:00, the owner of the lot came around and collected 40.00 which I don't think is a bad price.....The tailgating was AWESOME....and nothing that I would worry about having my kids around. It was an AMAZING experience!!!!!!! So, long story short, I'd get there as early as possible to truly enjoy the pre-game atmosphere and the festivities!!!!!!! Have fun!!!!!
