What would a tailgate party be without food and drink? The answer: a crowd of rabid fans standing around in a parking lot waiting to get into a game. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But ticket lines, unlike tailgates, aren’t generally a big party.
That food and drink needs to go somewhere, before it hits your stomach, that is. Tailgate Fan understands that. We live the the tailgating life too. So here’s what you need to put everyone in the right mood, even as they psyche themselves up for the game.

Football Hot or Cold Cups ($5.99)
A cold beverage starts to seem a little less appealing as the weather changes. And yet some of your guests won’t care that their drink no longer needs ice to be kept cold. Tailgate hosts need versatility, even when it comes to something as simple as a cup. These football-themed cups can hold cold punch, hot chocolate and anything in between.
Some tailgating foods have nothing to do with the weather. From sunny Miami to snowy Green Bay, tailgaters eat chips. It’s as basic as breathing. Keep the football theme going with this football-themed snack serving tray. Measuring more than a foot in diameter, this plastic tray has plenty of room to pile on the chips. Clean up easily afterward, if there’s anything left.
You have to have plates, right? We tailgaters eat our (admittedly better) food just like everyone else. Keeping up with the theme, these Football Frenzy Plates, with 50 to a pack, should be plenty for your next tailgate. Pile on the food and go back for seconds.
Somebody will need to charge a device at some point; that’s just how it goes. And so begins the search for a charger, an extension cord, a plug, something. Forget all that. Fill the PowerPot with water and heat it up with any available heat source – a grill or portable stove, for example. Heck, even the hood of your car will work. Then plug the heat-resistant cable into the device and watch it power up. Hard to believe, we know.
