The winter thaw is upon us, which means outdoor parties and swimming pools aren’t that far behind. Tailgate Nation has had it with the snow, ice and freezing temperatures. And what better cure is there for the winter doldrums than a look ahead to summer?
You’ve got the grill; you’ve got the beer. You know where the pool is. All you need now is that one piece of gear to set your summer tailgate apart from all the rest. Tailgate Fan teamed up with the nation’s top beer and flotation experts to come up with just the thing. (Actually we just searched the interwebs, but the result is the same.)
Let us present to you the Pool Pong Party Barge, a product we wish we’d thought of. It’s a floating beer pong table that can hold plenty of extra beer. This beer pong table inflates with a bicycle pump, and at six feet long and three feet wide, it can hold a full set of full beer cups (10 at each end) with extra room for spectator drinks. Play in the shallow end or the deep end, standing or treading water. Beer pong is about get better, something many of us didn’t even think was possible.
The Barge also has a built-in cooler at the center. Just fill the space with ice and up to 18 cans and put the lid back on to keep it cold. Also included are six ping-pong balls. The barge doubles as a floating lounge, with enough room for post-game rest and relaxation (or recovery). Or forgo the game entirely in favor of a peaceful tailgate for one. Whatever your party preference, the pool pong party barge is a must-have for your summer tailgates.
