Go big or go home, right? Of course we love routing on our team during the actual game, but game day just doesn’t feel complete unless you grab your closest friends for a tailgate outside the stadium beforehand. Ready for an epic tailgate? Take a look at this checklist and make sure you’re not forgetting any essentials!
Just being with close friends guarantees a good time, but bringing some games along just takes the fun to the next level. Of course, you don’t have to bring all of these games, but we listed some popular options so that you can pick and choose your favorites.
- Corn Hole
- Kan Jam
- Horse Shoes
- Ladder Golf
Let’s talk about food because – let’s be real – isn’t that the best part? Besides your favorite game day recipes, make sure to have loads of snacks, utensils, and definitely water bottles to keep hydrated in the sun.
- Coolers & ice
- Water bottles
- Burgers, hot dogs, or other game day meals
- Snacks (chips, pretzels, cookies, etc.)
If you look the part, you’ll feel the part. You can’t go to game day without sporting some logoed gear to get you in the right spirit!
- Spirit wear
- Hoodie or jacket
- Knit hat and gloves for chilly nights
- Foam Finger, pom poms, or other spirit accessories
Food, games, and apparel are important essentials, but don’t forget these extra items while you’re at it!
- Folding chairs
- Folding table
- Trash bags
- Hand wipes or hand sanitizer
- Paper Towels
- Portable MP3 player
- Portable phone charger
Do you have everything you need? There’s just one more thing… make sure to bring your school pride!
