Baseball Season & Tailgate Party Tips
Baja Micheladas drink mix flavors are the best tasting and most convenient drink mix option for any tailgate party. You can buy the party pack and bring it with your other supplies and mix it up at the tail gate party. Here are some other helpful tips for a great tail gate party at the next sporting event.
Cook as much as you can before arriving. This way you don’t spend the whole time behind a grill. Especially if you don’t have a portable grill.
Whipping up your famous pulled pork recipe? It never tastes as good cold. Instead of buying standing trays, use bricks to prop a pot or pan above a Sterno can placed between the bricks to heat the pot or pan from beneath.
Aluminum foil is the best to have on hand for many cooking options. Also bring lots of bungee cords. Use four to attach a box fan to the top of the tent for better air movement and one is all you need to create this simple paper towel holder.
Make sure everyone knows which side you’re on. Freeze colored water balloons as a spirited replacement for ice cubes. Tailgating is an all-day event, and if you’re going to last, hydration is the name of the game. Frozen bottles of water will kill two birds with one stone. They’ll help keep things in the cooler cold and you’ll have ice-cold water to drink when they start to melt.
Everyone loves to have great tunes when they’re pre-gaming. Avoid lugging your heavy (and expensive) sound system and create your own speakers using two Solo cups (which should automatically be on everyone’s tailgating supplies list) and a used paper towel roll.
Surfaces are scarce when tailgating. Attach magnets to your koozies so that you can just attach them to the car when you need two hands for that pulled pork sandwiches. Use large decorative chargers as plates. They’re big enough to fit food and drinks all on one lap-friendly eating surface.
Keep serving sites organized by using cardboard six-pack containers to hold condiments and spices. It also makes it easier to pass them around at once, because who uses salt without pepper?
If you have a pair of athletic tube socks with the right colored stripes, you’ve got yourself a couple of awesome gameday koozies. Cut off the foot and use the ankle part to keep your beer from sweating. Keep your drink bug- and debris-free by turning cupcake wrappers upside-down over the opening of your drink. Shove a straw through for easy access and you’ve got a lid that will cover almost any drinking vessel. No grill? No problem. Get a larger tin can and make your own.
Did Karen forget the bottle openers again? While you contemplate whether or not to invite Karen next weekend, rest assured that you can impress everyone in the parking lot with these beer and wine bottle opening tricks using things that someone is guaranteed to have because you can basically open a bottle with just about anything.
Tie distinct balloons or flags to your car or tent so that it’s easy for friends to find the right parking spot or “grey truck.” Tool boxes are great for organizing grilling utensils. Pop-up and folding hampers make for the perfect garbage bins and are in nearly every dorm room. Create a convenient hand-washing station by filing an empty industrial-sized laundry detergent container with water. Info from Huffpost.
