Tom Hind and Club 16E has been going strong for over a decade.
For Tom Hind this is his 19th year tailgating a at the Meadowlands and it's the 10th year he’s been running Club 16E located in Section 16E of the stadium lot. The 49 year old die hard Jet fan has made it a family experience with both son and daughter participating since they were kids. Add around 50 of his closest friends and you have a kick ass shindig every gameday.

Club 16E is our next contestant in the 2008 JetsInsider.com tailgate challenge.

Hind’s tailgate may not be the biggest in the lot (which he prefers to keep it “manageable”) but with a more intimate group he takes the time to talk with everyone and make them feel comfortable. He has a core group who attend the majority of the tailgates but it’s the friends and relatives that he tries to cater to and made them feel “at ease” with all these “strangers”!

Hind believes the thing that makes his party special, is the sense that everyone belongs and feels like part of the family. Menu changes weekly and usually the theme is geared towards the opponent. He also takes pride the Club 16E Jets Shrine that he sets up each week and world famous Bobblehead races.
