Tailgating Tips and Tricks

While we might associate tailgating with football games and warm fall weather, it just so happens that July is officially “Tailgating Month.” Here at Stalker Chevrolet, we think July is the perfect time to get all the details of your tailgating experience worked out – a practice run, if you will – before college football kicks off in just a couple of short months.

Here are our tailgating tips for a fun-filled day eating, drinking, and playing games from the back of your trusty vehicle.

Find the right vehicle. When you have a great tailgating pickup, SUV, or crossover, the rest falls into place. A good sound system, easy-access to the cargo space, and enough room for coolers, games, a grill, and folding tables and chairs are a must. May we be so bold as to make a few recommendations? The 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500, Colorado, or Tahoe promise to provide an exceptionally good tailgating experience.

Bring extra food and drinks. Nothing ends a perfectly good tailgating party like running out of food or drinks. Create a menu ahead of time, and prepare what you can in advance. Make sure to pack your drinks and perishable food items well in a cooler (we recommend separate ones), and leave extras in the blissfully cold cooler until you need them. The drinks too. Nobody, and we mean nobody, wants a warm beer.

Don’t forget games. Good company and delicious food can only take you so far. Bring along a game of corn hole or other outdoor distraction, and enjoy!

Make a playlist. Doors and windows will be open, and music should be playing. Make sure your vehicle’s sound system is up for the challenge, and consider bringing along a Bluetooth speaker if it’s not. Mix it up, and keep the beats energetic and fast-paced.

Prepare for cleanup. No one wants to talk about the party being over, but being prepared will make clean-up much less painful. Bring a box of heavy duty trash bags (which can also function as impromptu rain gear), anti-bacterial wipes, and foil and Ziploc bags for leftovers.
