With kegs banned, U-Haul access restricted, and student tailgates housed on tennis courts, tailgating before this year’s Harvard-Yale football game in New Haven may look much as it does in Cambridge.
It’s the weekend before Halloween—and really the first weekend that feels like fall—so go out, drink some hot cider, and appreciate the fall colors, whether you’re in a costume or not.
