Get Ready for Game Day With A Tailgating Party!

Looking for the ultimate tailgating party guide? Whether you’re a tailgating newbie or a long-time veteran, throw a party, serve up some tasty grub, and get your game face on! Grilling is the best way to go when you’re tailgating, and if you have mini-grill and a cooler, then you’re golden!

Tailgaters can usually be found stationed outside the football stadium. Come August, the stadium closest to you will be the place to be. But even if you don’t have tickets to the game, throwing a tailgating party in your backyard or in your home, can be just as fun!

Presentation Pointers:

  1. If you don’t have enough room to pack a fold-up table in your car, make sure to bring blankets or other flat surface to eat off of. If you don’t have anything handy, eating on the car or just plopping down on the ground is the top choice.
  2. Bring a cooler and pack beer, if the cocktails above don’t suit your or your friends. Also, pack lots of  frozen bottled water in your cooler. It’ll cool you off, and hydrate you on a hot day, especially if you plan to drink alcohol.
  3. If your car doesn’t have powerful speaker, bring a boom box. You’ll want to listen to the pregame or at least some music, while eating and drinking.
