Tips for tailgating in the summer sun

Date Created: 05/16/2012

Tips for tailgating in the summer sun As the weather forecast predicts brighter days rife with sunshine and seasonable temperatures, we start to become more active individuals and return to our interests. If you are a sports or music fan, you have the urge to see our favorite teams live, rather than channeling them through your appliances in the cramped confines of your home. The best way to enjoy any long-anticipated event, is to make it an all day happening with a tailgating party.

Be prepared and stay cool

Make sure you pack the necessary party supplies before you set out for the day. Make a list of all the essentials you will need the night before. You don't want to arrive at the event and have forgotten something crucial such as the grill or the cooler, especially because once you are at the parking lot, turning back will not be an option.

No matter what the weather is like, you should always pack some sort of shelter. Invest in a canopy or an open air tent. This will serve to not only protect everyone from the beating sun, but if it rains everyone can still party and enjoy the day together without getting drenched (before the game at least).

Fly your colors with pride

Tailgating for a game is like a theme party focused on your favorite team. Show your unflagging support by decorating your area of the pavement so everyone can see who the No. 1 fan is. Hang streamers and curling ribbon of your team's colors and post a personalized banner made from corrugated paper that has a clever slogan or encouraging phrase on it. Your enthusiasm will be contagious and it will only serve to enhance the home field advantage.

Food for fuel

Food is a crucial part of the tailgating festivities. Usually concession stand prices are pretty steep, so filling up before the big game is a great way to save money. If you are going with a large group of people, designate certain items for everyone to bring. One person could be in charge of beverages while another brings party tableware, like the utensils, plates and napkins, while you might charged with packing the actual snacks. Either way, tailgating is a team sport, so work together to make sure the experience is one to remember.
