Sadly, I’ve never participated in tailgating in the parking lot of a stadium. I’ve seen videos of it and it looks like like SOOO much fun, but since I haven’t been to a football game since high school, I’m clearly missing part of the equation.
I have, however, hosted many home tailgating parties. Not quite the same thing, right? Well, we’re still going to go with it. The food is just as awesome and it’s massive fun too. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
