Throughout the parking area at Candlestick Park, you’ll find beer drinkers alongside wine sippers among San Francisco 49ers tailgaters. You’ll spot burger eaters and seafood lovers. You’ll see Chevy pickup trucks and Mercedes-Benz luxury cars. But a common Red and Gold thread runs throughout the tailgate scene.
Yes, the atmosphere is largely friendly and relaxed. Yet not every tailgating experience at Candlestick is uniform.
