Tailgating tips

  • Make a list of what you need to bring to the tailgate. Don't forget to put your game tickets on the list!
  • Bring your food in Ziplock bags if possible. This way you can throw the bags out instead of cleaning containers.
  • Bring chairs. Rookie tailgaters never have them!
  • Choose a parking lot (and space) that allows you to interact with other tailgaters.
  • Freeze water bottles and use them as the "ice" in your cooler.
  • Have a theme for your tailgate. If it's Thanksgiving bring a turkey. If it's Christmas bring a tree.
  • Wear team colors and fly team flags.
  • Don't forget: Water, trash bags, paper towels, wet naps, a kitchen knife, bottle or can opener!
