Be Noticeable

Stand Out!



This may be a bit obvious but the biggest, loudest and most active tailgate party will draw the attention of everybody. Fly flags on huge flagpoles. Hang banners and streamers with the home team’s colors. Break out the home sound system and blast some music. Nothing attracts people more than loud music and people having a good time. Play tailgating games that are fun and will draw attention. Lastly, have a unique and noticeable tailgating accessory on hand to attract attention.

Girls Are A Necessity

Sexy Ladies



Having girls at a tailgate party will help you stand out – not to mention the added fun girls bring. Which tailgate party would you rather go to? The tailgate party with 10 guys with beer bellies and male pattern baldness telling stories about how great of a high school football player they were? How about tailgating with a bunch of girls playing beer pong?

Serve Unique Tailgating Food

Grilled Barbecue



In order to have a good tailgate you need to have a tailgate party menu that stands out. Everyone else has hot dogs and hamburgers. Yawn.! Try something out of the ordinary. If you are doing some NFL tailgating and your team is playing the Buffalo Bills, serve buffalo burgers. If you are doing some baseball tailgating and your team is playing the Arizona Diamondbacks, serve barbecued rattlesnake. You get the point. Exotic food choices will make your tailgate standout more than the guys serving baby back ribs smothered in barbecue sauce out of a plastic bottle.

Have A Solid Theme

Some college football games run in conjunction with Homecoming. Normally Homecoming weekends have some sort of theme. For example, Kansas State University held their annual tailgating competition, whose theme was “Magic in Manhattan”. Some tailgaters dressed up their pets complete with magician’s top hats and even performed impromptu magic shows throughout the tailgate. If there is a theme, make sure you know what it is and incorporate it into your tailgate party. Now that you know how to make your tailgate standout, you have to make sure you know what to bring to a tailgate!
