Tailgate Party Preparation List & Tips
Try to keep your tailgate party simple by planning easy to prepare foods and storing them in disposable containers. Prepare as much as you can a day or two ahead of the game. Arrive 3 or 4 hours before the game so you can find a good parking spot. Finally, make extra food and bring plenty of St. Supery wine to share with your tailgating neighbors.
The key to a stress free tailgate party is preparation. There is nothing worse than getting to the game only to realize that you forgot something (like your St. Supery wine!) For this reason, I am a big fan of lists. I have prepared this list for you as a starting place. Just add the items that you need for your particular menu.
- St. Supery wine (red and white)
- Wine glasses (plastic is safer for your tires in the event of breakage)
- Wine opener
- Trash bags
- Paper napkins
- Disposable plates, forks, knives
- Drinking water
- Wet naps
- First aid kit
- Folding chairs
- Folding table
- Disposable containers
- Zip lock bags
- BBQ utensils (tongs, wire brush, fork)
- Grill (charcoal, chimney starter, matches)
- Salt & pepper
- Don’t forget the food!
