Let's Go Oakland!

Yes, a plaza outfield ticket is included. Parking is not included. (take BART) 

OHH is taking the Happy Hour to the game. We will be pre-game tailgating and then sitting together in the stadium. Your Oakland Athletics will be playing and beating the Los Angles Angels of Anaheim (dumbest name ever) at 7:30. The tailgate will include the basics: Burgers, Hot Dogs, Chips, Peanuts and .....while they last COCKTAILS as long as you like, jello shots, rum and coke, vodka and cranberry or straight whiskey. Beer will not be provided, but you might make a lot of friends if you show up with some.  

LOCATION: We are going to try and be up front in section B. I am going early and will post on the website as soon as I have an actual spot.

The Swingin' A's will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1974 World Series championship on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31. Former players from the 1974 A's championship team will take part in autograph sessions and the team will be honored in an on-field ceremony, starting at 5:30 p.m., prior to the Saturday game. In addition, 15,000 fans will receive a Catfish Hunter Bobblehead, presented by State Farm, upon entrance to the ballpark on Saturday. Hunter won the 1974 American League Cy Young Award after going 25-12 with a league leading 2.49 ERA. His number 27 was retired by the A's in 1991. Hunter passed away in 1999.

Please be aware that due to the bobblehead offer this game will be very crowded. Also, in order to get a bobblehead you will have to go in VERY early and there is no in-out privileges. I have friends planning on getting in line at 3:30. The first pitch isn't until 7:30. So it may come down to having to decide if you would rather have a cool little plastic doll or hang out in the parking lot with food and drink before the game.

Just Added:

Tailgate only spots are avail by RSVP only via meetup and paypal. Please click here. and then click the "pay now" link next to the price.

      Jermaine that was very kind of you. Kinda messed me up a little but still very cool. Latisha seems to have grabbed up your spot in record time.

    Hi, I have been #2 on the wait-list/want spot for over a week now and am still in need of 1-tix. If you or anyone you know has one-tix to sell please call me ASAP/ANYTIME @[masked] Thx! AJ/Anthony

  • Rick

    Did everyone get the email instructions yesterday?

    May 31, 2014

    • Caren

      I'm not sure that I did... any chance you can resend to me? Or text me the time and location? I'm @[masked]-9528. Thanks!

      May 31, 2014

  • Rick

    Please be clear I will only be giving out tickets to the 40 names to the right of this page who have rsvp'd Yes.

    The tailgate starts around 4:00 PM (or as soon as we get set up) and goes until the first pitch.

    As you may know, finding a space and everyone getting to that same spot is the biggest challenge of any tailgate. Jennifer and I are going early and will be driving in as soon as the gates open. The target is upfront of Lot B (the Hegenberger side). Once inside we will set up a base camp in the front row. Just in case you have troubles, my cell is[masked]-2665. Please do try to find us first before you call or text as I may be busy BBQing.

    If you are taking BART, Just make a left at the end of the sky bridge, come down to the parking lot and look for my BLACK 4-Door Toyota Tacoma truck in the first 1 or 2 rows. Lot "B" is that first section you will come to and that is where we plan on being. My plan is to get as close to the very first parking spot as possible.

    I'm happy to take Norm's ticket for my friend. (and will pay Norm, regardless of what he says!) Also, I am carpooling w/Aldaberto and will be bringing cooler of BEER, slow cooked beans, maybe some steak, a folding table, plates & cutlery.

    May 30, 2014

    • stephanie

      Nopales,yum! I just sent payment to expedite quickly; she does not have a PayPal account (yet). Anyway I believe she will be joining the groupgroup so she can be my partner in crime to events- we work together.

      May 30, 2014

    • Jay T.

      How come nobody ever wants to be my partner in crime? Is it the deformed ears or cyclops eye??

    any tkts to the game left? please call/text me[masked]-3592. thnx!

    May 30, 2014

  • stephanie

    Rick- do you think maybe you could bring some of those neon green garage sale boards- tape it to your window or something- so us early driving tailgaters can find you? I am not good with north, south, east, west. Bright and obnoxious usually works though ;)

    1 · May 12, 2014

    • Rick

      I'll try to do something like that.

      1 · May 30, 2014

  • Norm

    Rick, I am unable to attend this event due to having to come into office and finish a project before Monday. Please give my ticket, to the next person on wait list. I do not want money for it.

    May 30, 2014

    • Rick

      Norm, I'm sorry to hear that. You are free to sell your spot here. I would suggest that you have someone (maybe Stephanie) paypal you over the money and then notify me who should get your ticket.

      May 30, 2014

  • Krikkit

    Unfortunately, I'm having to sell my ticket. This ticket includes a seat with the group at the game and the tail gate ahead of time![masked] or email me [masked] This apparently is the last of the combo tickets!

    May 30, 2014

    • Rick

      Has this transaction transacted...I'm kind of waiting to hear so I can email instructions.

    As previously stated, if anyone wants to carpool, im in Castro Valley. Im going regardless if anyone wants to hitch a ride....

    May 30, 2014

  • Rick

    currently there are a few opportunities to once again purchase tickets to the OHH Tailgate and A's game this Saturday. I have made two more tickets available and Cindy and Krikkit are selling their tickets as well. These tickets include both a seat with the group at the game and food and beverages at the tail gate ahead of time.

    In addition, I have made another event that covers just the price of the tailgate and there are also spots available on that event page as well. The the tailgate only people will need to secure their own tickets for the game.

    Tomorrow or Friday I will be sending out additional information to only those members who are on the paid RSVP list for either event as to how to find the tailgate party.

    I hope you can make it!

    Cheers,

    Rick

      hows this going?

      May 22, 2014

    • Cindy C

      Still waiting for payment, if no payment today. I'll just sell it to someone else.

      May 27, 2014

  • sulaiman

    What's the plan now?

    May 22, 2014

  • Janet P.

    So if nobody else wants to split the cost of parking, I will probably not drive and bring the extra BBQ. The $20 is too steep for me to cover alone and I am only one BART stop away from the Coliseum.

    May 22, 2014

    • Jay T.

      im in Castro Valley if you want to Carpool

      1 · May 22, 2014

    • Janet P.

      OK if you want to drive over to my house in San Leandro we can leave from there with the BBQ. You OK with paying $10 for the parking? It's still more than BART...

      May 22, 2014

  • AJ

    Jennifer/Rick: Some of us on the want/wait-list are curious/asking, "how is it that someone near the bottom of the wait list (#15) can jump-over 14 other people/spots by talking or buying their way to a 1st/top-spot tix for a "cancellation or opening? Is this the protocol that happens on "all meetup wait-list/openings venues" or just this one/your event(s)? Please clarify the process for all concerned, moving forward. Thx!

    1 · May 20, 2014

    • Cindy C

      =( Sorry AJ, I brought my tix and cant make it to the 4pm tailgating.. There was no refunds from the group, so I'm selling my tix.. my apologies..

  • Cindy C

    Jay Tee, Fyi.. I just requested a refund from Rick.

    May 19, 2014
