Gear: Serving Drinks At The Tailgate

People usually enjoy the food and the company at a tailgate. But they come for the drinks. We pity the poor host who doesn’t have enough on hand to satisfy the thirsty masses. If that happens, Houston (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, New York and every other football town), we’ve got a problem.

Any good party host only has to learn this lesson once, if they have to learn it at all. But stocking up often isn’t the issue, so much as serving to keep up with demand… without making a giant mess. Revelers get awfully cranky when they see drinks they can’t have.

So instead of cramming bottles and cans and cups all helter-skelter on the kitchen counter or some random table co-opted bar duty, bring along the GoPong Portable High Top Party Bar. It’s a portable full-size serving bar that’s strong enough to hold up to 25 pounds of delicious drinks on top and another 25 pounds below.

Stored in a compact carrying bag, the High Top Party Bar can be tucked away in a closet or a car trunk until needed. It only takes a minute or two to set up, and comes complete with three decorative skirts to cover the front. We suggest going with the football motif (as opposed to the flower pattern or plain black), unless you want to confuse people into thinking they’re at a tiki lounge or insurance seminar.

The top has enough room for mixing drinks or dispensing cold ones, and the hard, waterproof surface keeps spills from spoiling the party. And when you’re done taking orders, draft one of your friendly partygoers to play bartender. Once the party’s over, wipe it down, remove the skirt and fold the bar back down into its carrying case for next time. It’s as simple as that.
