10 Top Tailgating TipsThursday, March 29, 2012 · Share
If you've ever been tailgating before you would know what a fun time it is. It's basically like having a big party in the middle of other big parties. A festive atmosphere clean of life's other distractions like work and school, tailgating makes for a good time to hang out with friends and family while enjoying a sporting or musical event. Those of us who have tailgated before often tend to keep doing it, which says a lot. Here are 10 top tailgating tips to help you make the most of your tailgating events.
Try to do most of the prep work before leaving. Examples include making the burgers and marinating the meat.
Delegate duties to other people tailgating with you.
Put dry ice at the bottom of your cooler to prevent the rest of your ice from melting.
Use frozen bottled water and ice instead of all ice in your cooler. It'll act as ice yet you can also drink it!
Koozies work great in keeping your beer cold. Use a unique color or design to help distinguish your drink from others.
The beanbag game "Cornhole" is really fun when tailgating.
Tailgating in parking lots or in places where you can't see the venue isn't as fun.
Create a playlist for the day of the event to play on your phone and a set of speakers. Pandora also works.
Bring a bit of styrofoam padding for your feet during cold weather events.
If you're new to tailgating walk around the tailgate area before the game and take notes on the good tailgate parties.
