    I’m making my first trip to Lambeau Field this November, for the game against the Panthers. First I’m flying to Florida, staying there two nights, flying to Chicago then onto Green Bay, staying there two nights, then back down to Florida, then back home to the U.K.

    I am so excited, I seriously cannot wait, it’s going to rock

    Just got some questions for people, seeing as no-one has put any info in here

    1: how cold does it usually get in Green Bay at the end of November, usually? I might have to plan ahead and pack alot of warm clothing! I have saw a website which has the averages for November, it looks like it's going to be pretty cold!

    2: What happens at these tailgate parties? People just hang out and stuff? I have admission to the tailgate party at the Brett Favre steakhouse. I think it starts at 9am (3 hours before kick-off), and I'm staying at a hotel right by the airport in GB. Does anyone have any idea how long it'll take to reach lambeau from here?

    3: What time do they start allowing people into the stadium, to watch the players warming up and stuff? Also is there ever any chances to meet any players after the game or anything? Or anywhere around the area?

    4. What is the club shop like? I'm looking to get some awesome stuff from here if it's good :)

    if you think there is anything else a lambeau newbie should know, please tell me!

    Thanks alot everyone, and a big thanks to wischeez for letting me post this here, and thanks to IronMan for replying in the other forum.

    I had another couple of questions, but I forgot one of them :(

    When you rent out the seat back/cushion thing, what happens if I need to go to the bathroom or something? If I leave it on my seat, will somebody take it?

    Oh yeah, I remembered the other question :)

    Am I allowed to take a back-pack into the stadium?

    Thanks :D

    I would not worry about someone taking your seat cushion. Packers fans treat one another better than that.

    And no, backpacks are not allowed to be brought into the stadium. You can find a list of other prohibited items here:

    Damn, no backpacks sucks, and no fanny-packs too! I'm going to need to find some warm clothing with safe, deep pockets!

    Lol, I'd feel safer putting stuff like money, camera, tickets, passport etc in my bag rather than in my pockets

    1.YES it is usually 20-40
    2.YES its just usually just ppl talking and hanging around (a good tailgate place is near lambeua field,a store forgot what its called,but its near a place with great cheesecake!)
    3.whenever you want,admission starts 3 hours before the game
    4. the pro shop has great classic jerseys,such as bart starr,ray nitchske,and paul hornung etc. and the other shop has great stuff.such as sweatpants,sweat shirts "racoon hats" and christmas stuff.!!!

    Sweet man, I'll be at this game as well!! I can't freakin' wait!

    I'm going to be checking out Fuzzy's again, like IronMan said. I'm also going to be eating at Lambeau Field, and tons of other places where I can get cheese curds and Brats!! They're amazing.

    I'm also going to be checking out a few other bars. Plenty of drinking to be done! People in Green Bay are super friendly, so it's easy to hang out with lots of cool people. I'm thinking about driving around more this time, checking out the surrounding areas and such. It's a beautiful place.

    Where are you staying?

    Will you be in Green Bay Friday or Saturday before the game? You may want to check out the Hall of Fame. It's great. I don't know if they do stadium tours the day before games or not. The Pro-Shop has everything Packer you can think of (and a few things you never thought of putting a Packer logo on! ;)

    Sometimes when it was cold I used to put a piece of cardboard on the ground under my feet. It will help keep your feet warm. There is a department store not far from the stadium - K-Mart, 1109 Lombardi Access Rd, Green Bay - (920) 499-3191. Call them and see if they have hand and foot warmers. These products heat up when opened and fit in your mittens (mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves do) and the foot warmers stick outside of your socks by your toes and really work! A hooded jacket will help keep your head and neck warm too. I wore the hooded jacket under my large coat. A blanket over your knees is another good idea. Have a blast visiting Mecca and tell us all about it when you get home.

    BTW, where in Florida will you be? 8)

    I can't wait also, it's going to be sweet. I think I'll check out Fuzzy's on the saturday night before the game too, I have nothing else planned so I might aswell!

    I'm staying at the Radisson hotel. What about you?

    I get to Green Bay on the satuday at about lunch time. I have my stadium tour booked for 3pm which is awesome I can't wait :)

    Thanks for the info about the feet and hand warmers. I'll be getting msyelf some of those! I've already bought myself some long-johns and thermal t-shirts ready! I don't have a winter coat, so do you think I should buy one when I get to Green Bay? How much do you think I'd be spending on a coat? I mightn't even brign it back to the UK with me, I just wear hooded jackets etc whilst I'm here!

    Also, I'm staying in Orlando before and after my Green Bay journey. :)

    Do you guys think I should buy a coat? Or will I be warm enough with a thermal t-shirt, a game shirt, and a thermal hooded jacket? (Bare in mind I am 27 stone, so I have some 'blubber' to keep me warm haha)

    I have all of my warm clothing ready, all I need is a hat!
