Summer’s here, and the time is right for dancing in the, um, parking lot. Warm weather means outdoor concerts, at a local park, your city’s stadium and many places in between. And that means lots more opportunities to tailgate.
Summer concerts are great opportunities to relax and hang out with friends. And the tailgating scene can rival those at many college and pro football games. (We’re looking at you, Jimmy Buffett.) Whatever your music scene, Tailgate Fan has the gear to keep the party rockin’ and rollin’.

Picnic Time Buccaneer Tailgating Cooler with Grill ($167.00)
Have your friends get the food and beverages; you’ve got the transport covered. This tote bag features an insulated cooler to keep cans chilled. Removing the cooler gives you access to the grill, so let them bring the charcoal too. One of those three exterior pockets holds grilling utensils. The spatula even has a bottle opener integrated into its design. One tailgate, coming up.
House of Marley Bag of Rhythm Portable Audio System ($299.99)
Everyone has tunes on their phones. But what if you want to turn up the volume and drive those woofers and tweeters with a battery-powered amplifier? We’re assuming you actually want to hear your music. There’s even an Apple dock for charging iPhones. The birch wood and canvas bag slips over your shoulder for easy carrying. And it looks great. What more do you need?
This folding loveseat for two is a must-have for outdoor concerts. It has a padded back with breathable mesh and adjustable arm rests and integrated cup holders. And this portable chair can support up to 400 pounds. Pack it up in the handy carrying case when the show’s over.
Picnic Time Portable Folding Picnic Table ($91.95)
Don’t share your food with the ants. Place this plastic and aluminum suitcase on the ground, unfold it and you’ve got a picnic table. It’s big enough to seat four (54″ X 33 1/2″ X 25 3/4″) with plenty of space for grub. The portable, folding picnic table comes in a choice of colors — red, blue, green or black — and even takes an optional umbrella.
