Default $20 tailgating lots?

I used to set up a tailgate spot at the Shriner's Lot (across Assembly St from the Fairgrounds), but it appears they are upping their price. They did charge $20 per spot, first come first serve, but at the UNC game, their sign read $30. Shriners Lot had the best tailgating bang for your buck that I knew of at that $20 price. I am already familiar with the most popular lots (Farmers Market, Fairgrounds, Armory), but I'm not looking to deal with those lots as they are more expensive and the first come first serve spots fill quickly. I want something within a decent walking distance for $20 first come first serve that still has a decent tailgating atmosphere (similar to the Shriners Lot, if you're familiar with it). I also set up a dish and TV, so I can't be in a really confined area that will block the satellite signal. I am admittedly mostly ignorant to the tailgating lots on Bluff Rd and behind the stadium (Shop, Key, etc). If anyone has any input on some of these lesser known tailgating lots, or has any recommendations for me, I'd love to hear them. Thanks guys.

Disclaimer: I realize $30 is not a ton of money, and I will spend it if need be, but I like to save where I can, so comments such as "just spend the $$" or "park at the Farmers Market" are pointless.

Just go down bluff or shop road and pick a lot that works best for you.

More than $20 is insane.

Look, I realize that it's private property, there has to be a mechanism in place to keep people from just "piling in," someone is watching the cars, there are port-o-johns, etc., etc., etc., but, more than $20 is getting greedy.

In fact, I won't pay that much, but I will if dad is with me, because he can't walk far.

I park off Key road behind the state. It has shade trees, seurity, port o johns and is a short walk. They sell out pretty quick though because they are small lots. I like that I don't have to walk down the real busy roads after the game.

You'll have a problem if your trying to head W after the game though. I like it beause I head up I-77.

It has to be a lot with standard tailgating space... tent, table, chairs, coolers, tv, satellite dish, etc.

Do you have season tickets or attend all of the home games? The armory parking lot for the season is $100.

$100 / 7 home games = $14.28 per game. Pretty cheap.
