Fans and tailgaters are gearing up for a chilly Sunday playoff game involving the Cowboys.
While the cold weather inside AT&T Stadium won’t be a concern for attendees during the Cowboys’ playoff game on Sunday evening, those involved in tailgating, whether entering or exiting, will face dangerously low temperatures.
J. Gilligan’s Bar and Grill in Arlington, known for shuttling customers and Cowboys fans to the stadium, is taking measures to address the harsh conditions. In anticipation of the forecasted cold on Sunday, the president of J. Gilligan’s, Randy Ford, has increased the number of shuttles to expedite the transportation of people. Recognizing the importance of staying warm, Ford is advising guests through social media and their website to dress warmly.
With temperatures expected to be as low as 13 or 15 degrees outside, Ford is going the extra mile by adding a heavy-duty diesel heater to the patio heaters for those waiting outdoors. While the effectiveness in such extreme cold remains uncertain, Ford aims to provide some relief for attendees and especially for the employees who will be exposed to the elements for an extended period.
