Ultimate Tailgate: 4 Steps to Success

With football season upon us, not only is it time to hit the stands for some exciting games—it’s also time to hit the parking lots for one of the best parts of the experience: tailgating! Pinic-basket.com has compiled a list of essential steps toward becoming a professional tailgater this season, and we’ve highlighted some of our favorite steps below:

  1. Provide Assorted Spirits

“There’s nothing quite like a cold brew to warm up your insides and make you feel all warm ‘n fuzzy on an icy cold day; or an frosty beer to really make you appreciate a nice warm spring day” says pinic-basket.com.

  1. Up Your Food Game

A successful tailgate requires awesome food. Grill up some burgers and hot dogs, along with vegetarian options. Have a wide range of tailgating foods available so everyone has a variety they enjoy.

  1. Dress Like A Pro Tailgater

Don’t forget to look the part while playing corn hole! Wear your team colors or your favorite player’s jersey. No matter what, make sure you are enjoying yourself and you are dressed for the weather, warm or cold.

  1. Have a Portable TV and Radio

A portable TV allows you to enjoy both the pre-game and the game. Want to have some music but don’t have a cordless radio? You can use your car radio while having your open trunk double as additional seating or a food/drink station.

GMC AcadiaFootball season is officially underway. For some, this means a few months of hating everyone around them; for others, it’s the best three to four months of the year. If you fall in the second group, chances are high you’ve enjoyed at least a few awesome tailgate parties. And, you also know the key to having a successful tailgate party is having the right kind of vehicle.

Cars.com recently put together a list of what it considers the Top 10 Tailgaters and we were excited to see the 2014 GMC Acadia included on that list. What makes the Acadia perfect for your next tailgate party? It offers a spacious 24.1 cubic feet of space behind the third row and with the rear row folded flat, it jumps to 70 cubic feet. Only need the front row seats? Welcome to your cavernous 116 cubes. If it rains, you could move the party inside.

Another great tailgate-friendly feature is the available rear stereo controls. This lets you keep your phone plugged in up front while you find the perfect playlist in back. All without having to drain your phone’s battery using Bluetooth.
