How to Throw Your Own Tailgate Party
Things You'll Need:
  • Portable Radios
  • Barbecue Grills
  • Grill Baskets
  • Grill Utensils
  • Wire Grill Brushes
  • Folding Chairs
  • Folding Tables
  • Ice Chests
Put on every bit of clothing you own with your team's insignia on it. You cannot go overboard here. Face paint in your team's colors is always a nice touch. Decorate your truck, van or sports utility vehicle making sure to put a flag on your antennae so that your friends can find you. Pack your ice chest with lots of hamburgers and hotdogs to grill, buns and condiments along with plenty of beer. If it is cold, you may want to make a batch of tailgate tumblers before you leave and bring them along in a thermos. Pack your BBQ grill, charcoal, lighter fluid and spatula. If you really want to show off your team spirit, you can get a helmet grill or NFL cooler with your team's logo on it. Order a party-in-a-box, including plates, napkins, cups, cover and snack bowl, with your team's insignia on it. Bring a portable radio, and set it up on top of your vehicle so that you can hear pregame interviews or keep track of the other games going on. Bring several folding chairs so that everyone can sit comfortably while they chow down. After a few drinks, wander around until you find John Madden's bus - wave and yell, "Hi, John," at the tinted windows.
