Gear: Deck the Halls, and the Parking Lot

By Marshal M. Rosenthal

Food. Drink. Friends. That’s all you need to have a good party. But Christmas parties can be… boring. Why have a Christmas party when you can have a Christmas tailgate? There’s still plenty of football to be played. Heck, Santa might even make an appearance between deliveries. Just keep him away from the hard stuff since, well, he has a lot of work to do this time of year.

Tailgate Fan can help turn your tailgate into a holiday tailgate. We’ve got the gear. You just need to add the good cheer.
