Terrific Tailgating Tips For The Upcoming NFL Season

Football season is around the corner. That means it’s time to begin planning for the ever so fun tailgating parties. Some tailgating parties are tremendously lavish affairs with huge recreational vehicles rolling out a spread of cocktails and appetizers on white linen covered tables with candelabras. On the other hand, the trunk of a car and folding tables and lawn chairs usually suffice for creating a fun and memorable tailgating experience. Whatever your means, be sure to take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and order a hat or visor from your favorite team from the huge selection available at Lids.

The best tailgating parties are generally the result of advanced planning. Determine the number of guests you plan to have join in the fun. This count is needed in order to begin the planning process for the menu. Select items that can be prepared well in advance and easily transported to the venue. It’s always fun to grill at a tailgate and hotdogs and hamburgers are typically enjoyed by most guests. Plan to have several large coolers. Freeze water bottles several days in advance to use in lieu of ice to prevent foods from getting soggy or wet.  Purchase the condiments needed for hotdogs & hamburgers as well as buns and have them on hand.  Prepare several salads and store in air tight containers for transport in the coolers. Chips and salsa or a tray of appetizers prepared in advance will always be welcome as appetites grow with the smell of dinner on the grill.

Plan on having plenty of paper products for the meal. Paper plates & plastic cutlery will make clean up muck easier. Do bring sturdy utensils for grilling and serving. Have several trash bags and rolls of paper towels on hand for easy cleanup. Ask guests to bring their own lawn chairs or collapsible chairs. A large folding table for serving can easily be set up adjacent to the trunk. Have a separate cooler and paper cups with a large selection of drinks on hand. Have a grand time at your tailgating party!
