Are you walking into stores like Target and seeing back-to-school items available already?

It’s almost that time of the year again which means summer is almost over, but it doesn’t have to be.

There’s still time to round up your friends, buy those concert tickets you’ve been keeping an eye on, and head over to MetLife Stadium for a tailgate and a show.

MetLife has hosted some of the biggest names this summer like Coldplay, Paul McCartney, The Weeknd, and Sir Elton John on his farewell tour.

Now of course you can venture over to some of the other great venues to catch a concert before the summer ends like:

But experiencing a stadium show is like no other.

I went to see the Rolling Stones back in 2019 at MetLife Stadium and it’s hands down the best concert I’ve ever been to.

If you’re a football fan, don’t worry, football season starts very soon. In fact, the first preseason game to take place at MetLife is the Giants against the Bengals on Aug. 21.

And for you Jets fans like myself, they will take on the Falcons the very next day on Aug. 22.

As for concerts, there are still tickets left for these remaining shows at MetLife:

Dave Portnoy, commonly known as El Presidente, is the founder of Barstool Sports. Somewhere along the way, he decided to start reviewing local pizzerias, and the concept took off. Here is every New Jersey pizzeria Dave has stopped in, along with the score he gave them.
