Rabosai – Anyone think that tailgating at the Siyum HaShas is wrong? If not, does anyone want to join in? 🙂
The parking lots open at 3:00 and Mincha/Siyum starts at 7:00. Two to three hours is plenty of time to cook and eat like a mentch.
The other food options are bringing something small from home or buying overpriced snacks/drinks inside the stadium.
Curious to hear the Olam’s thoughts!July 16, 2012 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #886502nishtdayngesheftParticipant

Cooking out of the back of your car (the tailgate). Nowadays, people have fancy grills, tents and can make a very nice meal at the parking lot. It’s done a lot by football games.July 17, 2012 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #886510SaysMeMember
In the United States, a tailgate party is a social event held on and around the open tailgate of a vehicle. Tailgating often involves consuming alcoholic beverages and grilling food. Tailgate parties usually occur in the parking lots at stadiums and arenas, before and occasionally after games and concerts. People attending such a party are said to be tailgating. Many people participate even if their vehicles do not have tailgates.July 17, 2012 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #886511takahmamashParticipant

“Tailgating often involves consuming alcoholic beverages and grilling food.”
Many kiddushim these days also, unfortunately, involve consuming mass quantities of alcoholic beverages and eating grilled food. Perhaps we should rename them tailgate parties?July 17, 2012 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #886515CRuzerParticipant

Takahmamash: I don’t think it’s Chukas Hagoyim. The origin (so far as I know) has nothing to do with Avodah Zarah and Jews have done it too. It doesn’t meet either qualification to be Chukas Hagoyim according to anyone.July 23, 2012 7:44 am at 7:44 am #886517takahmamashParticipant
