Keys to the Perfect Tailgate
Whether you are attending a game or concert it is necessary to remember the importance of a quality tailgate. Done right the tailgate can end up being the best part of the day! To ensure everyone’s tailgating experience is a success, here are five key tips to the perfect tailgate.
1. A Good Cook
The most essential person at a tailgate is the cook. Without a large supply of burgers, dogs and sausage, a tailgate wouldn’t be nearly as fun. Don’t forget to bring plenty of beer as well. Hungry tailgaters will lead to lots of cranky people. Which brings me to…
2. A Positive Attitude
You cannot enjoy a tailgate with a negative attitude. Regardless of the way your favorite team is playing right now it is important that you keep a positive attitude, so that you don’t bring anyone else down with you. Don’t be a negative Nancy!
3. Games, Games, Games
Make sure to have a plethora of games to keep everyone entertained. It doesn’t hurt to have an old favorite such as cornhole and ladder golf. But, if you can’t get a hold of one of these games don’t be afraid to make up one of your own.
4. Proper Game Attire
Represent your team with pride! Wear a jersey of your favorite player or hat with the team logo and easily meet friends who are on your side.
5. Good Friends
I saved the most important key tip to the perfect tailgate for last. It is essential at a tailgate that you are in good company. You can always have a good time at a tailgate if you are with great friends.
