Jim Gardner fans are tailgating his final 6ABC newscast at a Target tonight
Jim Gardner’s final 6ABC newscast is tonight, and fans of the longtime anchor are planning to send him off with a bang. Philadelphians love a tailgate more than our own families, so when one man heard Gardner was planning to retire, he demanded we celebrate him with a tailgate.
Over a year later, the time has finally come to celebrate Jim Gardner in style.
According to Philly Voice, Miko has ordered Jim Gardner t-shirts and plans to set up a screen for partygoers to view the newscast. Since they are unable to use the Action News parking lot due to construction, the tailgate will be in the Target parking lot across the street.
There will be food, drinks, and “Move Closer to Your World” blasting on repeat. In my opinion, this sounds like the party of the season!
If you think the Chicken Man drew a big crowd to watch him eat his 40th rotisserie bird, then you probably aren’t prepared for what will transpire in that Target parking lot tonight. Jim Gardner deserves every bit of the send-off he’s getting and then some.
Plus, look how sweet these t-shirts are.
The shirts are designed by artist Paul Granese. While they are sold out, they should restock by sometime in early January, so keep your eyes peeled.
