Whether you’re going to the game Sunday at Ford Field or not, if you need something to do before the game I am going to let you know about six Detroit Lions tailgates. The city has been buzzing over the Lions hosting a Divisional Round game for the first time in 33 years, after winning their first playoff game in the same amount of time.

Sunday they’ll host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 3 pm and if you don’t have a spot to tailgate I’ll let you know about six bars in the D that will be hosting Detroit Lions tailgates this Sunday before the game. Five of the six bars are right downtown so you’ll be in the thick of Lions fans, and one is a bit off the beat and path.

I have called myself a bit of a Detroit Lions lucky charm the team is 21-30 since I moved to Detroit. The 3-0 in games that I have attended, including a trip to Tampa when the Lions beat the Buccaneers earlier this season. Here are the three games that I went to:

  1. November 9, 2022: 15 – 9 win over the Green Bay Packers at Ford Field
  2. December 4, 2022: 40 – 14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Ford Field
  3. October 15, 2023: 20 – 6 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium

So if you want to get me a ticket to the game, hit me up on Instagram here.

It’s supposed to be a low of 8 degrees and a high of 24 degrees on Sunday, which won’t effect the game unless you’re this Tampa Bay reporter:

So if you don’t want to be outside tailgating I am going to give you six options for a fun Detroit Lions tailgate, here are the addresses to each bar, their specials and hours are located below.

  1. One Mike Detroit (Downtown): 1331 Broadway St, Detroit
