Where do Ottawa Redblacks fans go for authentic tailgating?

I am heading to the eastern final tomorrow and I want to tailgate, with my own gear, not the fake at the stadium tailgate. Where do I go?


underground parking lol.

not many (if any) outdoor parking lots near the stadium that you can tailgate…

To the better red and black team’s city…


I suspect you can’t just fire up a BBQ on a sidewalk in Ottawa.But I don’t thinkBBQs are prohibited from most parking lots in Ottawa so just pick any within an easy mile walk of the stadium!


there are some parking lots on the other side of the river, off Bank St, but you need to get there early, and they are all private parking lots. May not allow you to fire up the BBQ or crack a beer.
