Stay Organized and Clean

A clean tailgate party is a happy tailgate party. If you’re bringing raw meat to grill, transport it in a separate cooler to protect the rest of your food and drinks from any leaks. Also, use gloves when you grill to avoid cross-contamination.

Show Up and Break Down Early

Maximize your tailgating time by showing up early to get a good spot and breaking down early so you’ll have plenty of time to watch the game. Make sure you pack the grill so it’s easy to get out and fire up.

Serve Finger Foods

Timing is important at tailgate parties. That’s why you want to make sure the food is quick and convenient to eat. Finger foods make it possible to stand, eat, talk, and drink at the same time.

Look Out for Guests
