tailgate partyTraditionally tailgating parties were based around a football game, these days they can be based around any sporting events, outdoor performances (think Opera or orchestra) and Nascar events too.



What do you bring to a tailgate party? It depends what sort of event you are visiting, you always take food and drink – that used to be a sandwich and a couple of beers, now people pull their tailgate down, get the grill out and prepare a feast!

Top Secrets To The Perfect Tailgating Party

You want something delicious, easy and that proves your team loyalty for the perfect tailgate.

Things To Have At Your Tailgate:

#1. Pre-prep your tailgating treats

Let’s face it, guys and their grilling skills is super well-known, if we make our barbeque skills perfect we can impress our guests with ease and flair!

So, if you really want to impress, do some pre-prep by researching your steaks and turning up to the tailgate with some succulent high-end cuts of beef. You could go for the Wow factor and arrive with a tomahawk steak or casually mention that you decided to go with wagyu today instead of kobe.  No-one will have the slightest clue what you are talking about, but will LOVE the taste of your meat!

You could go upmarket and instead of beer, have a cocktail party! There are loads of great martini recipes on ThingsMenBuy.com and you could take all the ingredients in ready-made containers and mix your martinis at the party!

#2. Deck Out Your Tailgate with your Team

Make sure that you have your team colors and memorabilia out on display to show that you are a true fan.

You could go one step further and theme your food or drink with the team colors.

My team is New England Patriots and I have been known to have pomegranate martinis or blueberry martinis, garnished with a cherry for my drink of the day (I make these with this recipe and substitute the pomegranate for blueberries!)

I will also bring along blueberry muffins and red velvet cakes to the party. There is always plenty of Patriotic Twizzlers in my team colors.  Go Patriots!

#3. DIY Lawn Games

Tailgating lawn games are always great fun and they provide you with plenty of time to make new friends and hang out with buddies before the game.
