This is not about a grill and a cooler of beer: Tailgating is a lifestyle.
Who doesn't love tailgating? Especially with this beautiful fall September weather.
While you start prepping for the Broncos tailgating season, be sure to check out these
borderline genius “why didn’t I think of that?” tailgate tips and tricks.
Early morning tailgate? Pre-make pancake batter and bring it along in piping bags so they can go straight on the griddle – so smart! And no dishes to clean up, either.
Mix up a few pitchers of cocktails the night before, and then pour them into mason jars for single servings. They can go right in the cooler full of ice with the beer and soda!
Tablecloths are nice and all, but they’re always blowing around or getting in the way – especially if you’re storing things underneath the tables. Use an inexpensive fitted sheet!
Keep your food from getting soggy in the cooler - freeze water bottles to use in place of ice so you have cold water to drink after they melt!
Jell-o shooters are a tailgating staple; crank it up a notch by using flavored alcohol, adding fruit, and using Broncos-colored gelatin.
Load up this all-in-one cooler / picnic camping table with ice and some chilled down beverages, then just fold it up and take the party with you.
Trash bags laying on the ground or tied to a table leg are always asking for extra mess. Grab a pop-up hamper from the dollar store and stick a trash bag inside it!
Tailgating can sometimes be a little messy! Set up a hand washing station at your tailgate with a big jug of water, a 5 gallon bucket, some soap and paper towels.
I don’t know about you, but at our tailgates, we’re always looking for where we put the paper towels. Use a garden flag holder or a few bungee cords to attach them to your canopy.
