Once again, the NFL season has arrived and Packer fans are in full effect. Regardless of whether you are watching the game in the stadium or at a local establishment in Green Bay, it is never complete without a little Green and Gold tailgating. For us, it’s about firing up the grill during the pregame festivities at the infamous Lot 1 off Oneida St.

There is something unique about tailgating in the parking lot at Lambeau.

First of all, Lot 1 does not open until 8:00 am for a 12:00 pm kickoff. Prior to entering the Stadium parking lot, many fans wait for hours in the streets near the lot entrance. Most of these fans are mainstays of the Packer faithful. Year in, year out, they arrive early and they tailgate hard. The true Die Hards arrive at 6:00 am for a noon kickoff.

It’s very familiar to see the same woman (Lot 1 legend Kathy Sacotte) walking from car to car handing out Jell-O shots to fans waiting patiently to bust out their grills, their loudspeakers, and the rest of their tailgating apparatus, everything packed the night before. You wouldn’t dare bring a dish that wasn’t freshly baked or cooked. Reyne Kasieta famously bakes a bewildering array of foods, fresh for every game.

The two ambassadors of “The Happy Place of Lot 1” are Scott Schwartz and Justin Sipla. It’s plain and simple, these two individuals bring a five star experience to anyone that wants to have an amazing time. Packer backers and visiting fans alike, all are welcome beneath the characteristic yellow “smiley face” flag of the Packer Phan-atics tailgate. Many of us travel from all over the world to come together as one family at Lot 1.

Ultimately, the best recipe for game day is a family recipe. As Packer Fans, we wait and prepare for months to share our dishes with the family we’ve created. It doesn’t always matter what the recipe is, it’s about bonding with the most amazing fan base in the world, at the best tailgate in the world. Most of the fans in this lot have held parking passes in their families dating back to the Lombardi era. Some of these people tailgated the Ice Bowl. Some of their recipes are as hallowed as that famous game.

Here are a couple of outstanding dishes that are currently shared amongst fans and friends while tailgating at Lambeau.
