There’s one constant at every tailgate you’ll ever attend, whether it’s in a parking lot, at a stadium or in someone’s backyard. People will want to sit down at some point, and there won’t be enough seats. After all, standing and drinking is damn hard work. And that pavement can lead to aching backs, sore feet and other assorted injuries before the game even starts.
Don’t get caught in this entirely avoidable situation. Be prepared with enough seats for yourself and anyone who might need to take a load off. Tailgate Fan found some options for you, the discerning tailgating fan, on the interwebs. And here they are…

Stadium Chair ($40.00)
Wood or metal bleacher seats are about as comfortable to sit on as tacks. Anyone who’s ever been to a football game knows that. So bring along some extra cushioning on game day. This portable stadium chair uses tough Cordova canvas and bungee cord reinforcing attached to a foldable steel frame. It’s a comfortable alternative to back and butt pain!
