Keep Calm and Tailgate On

Jersey = on. Face = painted. Here's our playbook for the perfect tailgate.

When it comes to planning your tailgate, there are really two things people care about: food and entertainment. We're here to help you find the perfect balance of both.

The set up
First and foremost, make a checklist of everything you plan to bring to your tailgate: tables, chairs, paper plates and napkins, etc. This simple task will help you make sure nothing is left behind before or after the game. 

While the game is the main attraction, playing some music always adds to the game day ambiance. Packing a portable speaker will not only help save your car battery (no more need for blasting out your stereo) but also allow everyone to play some of their favorite pre-game pump up songs. Collaborative game day playlists are a game changer. 

Stocking up on portable phone chargers is an easy way to make sure everyone in your group can stay in touch and not miss a second of all of the action. Leave the few outlets to the more important things, like the TV streaming the game.

Don't forget party favors, too. Your tailgate guests will appreciate team koozies, shakers and other fun swag items. 

Fire up the grill
Nothing brings a tailgate together like the aroma and flavor of freshly grilled food. For top-notch BBQ, wings, burgers and hot dogs, consider investing in a travel-friendly grill. Having a massive grill at a tailgate is always a plus, but it can make the commute a hassle. See our blog on Picking the Perfect Grill for more information on portable grills.
