Tailgating At Home

Whether you are an avid fan of a college or pro football team, enjoying game day couldn’t be better than from the comfort of your own home. Here are three game-winning tips that will score points with your friends and family when you host a tailgate party at home!

Play It Safe

Grilling is a must for tailgating, but safety should always be your team’s top priority when you game plan your tailgate. Keeping your grill at least 10 feet away from your house will prevent any issues from the heat damaging or catching fire to your home. This includes portions attached to your house like carports, garages, wooden overhangs, and porches. While football or team décor shows off your team spirit, keep these decorations away from the grill as well. Keep a spray bottle of water and a fire extinguisher close by for any minor or major flare-ups.

Create Your Own Halftime Activity

Take a break from the couch during halftime and get outside! If you are expecting a large crowd, assemble teams for a quick game of tag football. Smaller crowds with little tailgaters offer a fun opportunity for you to hand off your football wisdom like teaching them the art of the perfect spiral or the best snap. If it’s a rainy day, keep the festivities inside with some fun indoor games like football charades!

Pigskin Picks

If you have a competitive spirit, open a friendly wager on the game or get your attendees to make their bold predictions. Losers can be responsible for washing the dishes or tackling the trash when the party is over.
