It’s that time of year again—summer is waning, leaves are dropping, and football season has begun. Whether you’ve got a mega fan in your life or you’ve been waiting all year for fall sports to start, here’s everything you need to take your tailgating, whether that’s in the parking lot of the big game or just your driveway, to the next level.
Start With A Great Grill
Portable grills are a tailgating essential. Not only does there have to be food, but there has to be tailgate-worthy food and that means anything that comes off of a grill. Since lugging your backyard rig to the game isn’t an option, fill your tailgating roster with a portable grill option that easily moves from one location to the next.
Food Is Key
Even the perfect grill is no good without some excellent food on it. With the right outdoor pots and pans, practically anything is possible. Wings and hot dogs are always a classic hit, but there are plenty of ways to get creative with your tailgate recipes (think portable pizza ovens), too, if you’re looking to take your tailgate game to the next level.
Get Your Drink On
From coolers and koozies to thermoses and water bottles, the right drinks in the right drinkware for the right weather are essential to tailgating success. If you’ve got Fido in tow, don’t forget to bring a dog bowl to keep him hydrated, too!
There’s No Party Without Music
For those who want to tune into the radio to get a play by play of the precious game, a portable radio is key. But for those who want to pump tuned from a the perfect tailgating playlist they’ve laboriously put together, a portable speaker is the way to go.
Dress For Any Weather
Whether it’s wind, rain, snow, sleet, or blistering sun, coming to the party dressed in the right gear is essential to enjoying the experience from start to finish like a champ.
