Ultimate Tailgate Checklist

We are officially ONE week away from the first college game OF. THE. SEASON. Who’s excited?! (insert everyone raising their hand here) Don’t get me wrong, we all love watching our favorite team play. But, let’s be real here. What percentage of us ACTUALLY go to the game to WATCH the football game in it’s entirety? It’s ok, you don’t want to admit it. We’ll just say it for you. You go to the games for…. tailgating, socializing, the beer, the jello shots, the food, cute boys, people watching, hanging with your bestie, and please God let there be drunk dudes with chest painting. Please!

If you love tailgating just like us, you’ll really enjoy this. We’ve found some killer tailgating tips that we think will help make this years tailgating go over a smidge better than years past.

1 – Show up to the game 4 hours before the game actually starts. You’ll need time to set up + take everything down before the game starts.

2 – Bring a toolbox. I don’t NEED no man! (insert sassy independent woman here) Kidding. If you have a dude, bring him. Then you can sit back, and enjoy the view.

3 – Pack portable jello shots in your teams colors. We’re a HUGE fan of these Strawberries + Cream jello shots. It’s like… you don’t know it’s even happening…. and then you stand up. :/ #yolo #oops

4 – Bring extra fun accessories for friends. (face stickers…etc.)

5 – Build a tailgate beer pong table. Like, why would you not?

6 – Bring your most comfortable lounge chair.

7 – A blanket. For when you’ve have a little too much to drink, and need a little power nap before kick off.

8 – Get a cute snapback hat. And wear it backwards. It’s a thing now.

9 – Red solo cups. You COULD BE the next flip cup champion. AND, you’ll need these for your beer pong table.

10 –  Take lots of snaps using the bee filter. Dear Snapchat, please don’t EVER do away with the bee filter. {follow us on snapchat here}

11 – Last but not least, you’ll need a BA shirt from our Tailgate Collection.
