    I love the trend I am seeing now in all girl tailgating..very sophisticated southern to dos. More stylish, fun, charming and hospitable just like we are. A bit more fancy with decor, food prep, presentation and display..kind of like room staging in a smaller area or a garden party in the back of the vintage wagoners .. Not fussy, more elegant and pulled together with a theme, from apps to drinks..even desserts and team gear. Welcoming to all..even the enemy..haha.
    One theme I did was centered around pheasant feathers and caramel apples, fall leaves..such gorgeous fun fall colors. The cake I did was a golden caramel cake topped with caramel apples..the sticks were tree twigs..it was a hit.
    Quartered bbq smoked chicken was also served. Red hot cocktails. Festive and themed, more important fun.

    This gorgeous towable would make it so much easier and darling blinged out.

    First: Atmosphere, attitude and setting obtainable goals for your team. Second: good friends & loyal fans. Third: Great food for before, during and after the game.forth: a kick ass tailgating apparatus which, my family and friends would love to win. It would help bring 1,2 & 3 together. That’s not just a Tailgating apparatus, a Tailgating motivator.

    A great tailgate consist of plenty of fans/friends from both teams, a menue planned specifically for the game (ie. Arkansas-pork, Florida-gator tail, etc.) your favorite drinks and of course the right atmosphere. It is fun to see how the fans from the other teams tailgate at their stadium, but with one of these they can see how my team likes to tailgate as well and maybe I can take a litte something from each experience to add to my tailgating traditions.

    The key to a successful tailgate is enthusiasm! I’ve been to “fancy” tailgates with amazing food, but that lacked the passion that makes a tailgate fun! I’ve been to “simple” tailgates where we had only chips and team spirit that were my favorites! It is this passion and energy when rooting for ones team that truly makes a tailgate. When I tailgate, I make sure to wear my colors, scream for my team, and never leave my enthusiasm at home!

    What I call the 3 F’s, Family, Food and Friends. Without these things you are alone and tailgating by yourself no one like to tailgate alone.

    See. Everyone thinks football is about the game. The real sport happens in the parking lot. It’s all about the tailgate!

    Years ago at an away game, a kind local fan picked up our restaurant tab and left us a note saying “great game, thanks for visiting and being pleasant fans”. Ever since that game, I’ve tried to make the visitors to my stadium and alma mater feel just as welcome as the kind stranger made me feel years ago. We always try to make friends with the visiting fans and the key to my tailgate parties are plenty of offer cold drinks, friendly chatter, and ample food. My philosophy is “know no stranger”. We’ve built relationships with other tailgates from our conference and love sharing our football experiences!

    It is vital to have plenty of real food (not just chips and dip) and beer. Plan ahead and always have a bad weather strategy!

    Being Southern, tailgating is something I have always taken pride in and love to share with my friends and family. My grandmother may have taught me delicious pecan pie, my father a dangerous mixed cocktail and my momma dressing up an outfit that will turn heads but these do not come close to the key ingredient for an successful tailgate. It’s not the food, the outfit nor the team but your school spirit (GO DAWGS) and the pride you have in it! 🙂

    The highlight of my tailgate in the BBQ. Slow cooked meat that can be smelled from the stadium is my claim to fame. Smoking meats before the tailgate gives me time to enjoy the festivities. But, other secrets of a successful tailgate include handing out stickers, beads and other accessories in team colors (never can have too much team spirit), doing as much prep work as possible before leaving home, and having fully stocked and labeled coolers (I use frozen water bottles to keep things cold and avoiding the mess of melted ice). Dessert with icing in team colors is a must! We bring a giant plastic tub to throw all dirty dishes and utensils into when it’s time to head to the stadium. When we get home, the contents go into the dishwasher and the tub gets hosed off in the yard. Most importantly, we consider tailgating a team sport. This, we enjoy making friends with the neighboring tailgates while sharing food and building comradery.

    The key to a great tailgate is lots of family and friends, plenty of food and beverages (we would always do a themed tailgate menu wise for who we are playing) and plenty of room and extra food/beverages to invite the strangers walking by who were soon to become new friends.

    A fantastic grill, excellent variety of food to grill, cold beer and great friends to share it with!

    The key is to invite friends – tailgates are best when shared with those you love!

    We like to assign stuff for each person to bring and arrive/set up a few hours before kickoff. Makes for a fun day for everyone.

    We really have no set itinerary, or rules, for our tailgating adventures. We do, however, keep with our Southern sense of hospitality, always have great food and drinks on hand, and believe in sharing with others attending the big party. Above all else, be there, in full team colors, ready to cheer the team on to victory and, of course, the more fans the merrier.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all… May everyone be forever blessed and always stay thankful…
