Game Ready Tailgating Gear for Fall 2019

Autumn is just around the corner, and for a lot of us, that means one thing and one thing only – tailgate season is back! The American tradition of setting up informal barbeques, games, and hang-outs in the parking lot before a sporting event is a fantastic way to bond a sporting community, discuss the game, and spend some time outdoors before a turn in weather makes that impossible.

If you plan on attending any tailgates this fall, make sure you have some warm clothes, cold beer, and a snack set up that everyone in the lot will envy.

Travel Tip: If you are planning on traveling to root on your team this fall, be sure to check out some of the best credit card offers. Many hotel and airline credit cards currently have some nice bonuses to help you reach those fall travel goals. But hurry, many of these offers are expiring this month!

In order to have a killer tailgate, you will need some equipment. Below is a list of tailgate essentials that will help ensure that you will have a fantastic fall.

Tailgating Gear: Tailgating Table-Collapsible Folding Camping Table with Insulated Cooler, Food Basket, and Travel Bag for Barbecue, Picnic & Tailgate

The most essential part of any tailgate is the snack food. The stadium food is overpriced and the lines are long, so it’s only good sense to snack up before you scan your ticket. This handy little collapsible table can hold a bucket of ice for cold beer, a bowl for of chips or pretzels, and even has four cup holders for your open beverages.

Set up is as easy as pulling the table out of its slim holder and unfolding it. The insulated cooler even zips shut which will keep your drinks cooler for longer. Your parking space will be the envy of everyone at the tailgate, so make sure you bring enough food and drink to share.

Tailgating Gear: Coleman Road Trip Propane Portable Grill LXE

If chips and beer aren’t quite enough for you, bring along this portable grill to heat up some burgers and hotdogs. An instant-start button ignites the grill without a match or a lighter, and the burners can be controlled over two different temperature zones. You can even switch out the grilling surface for a griddle or a stovetop grate.

The entire grill folds into a more compact size for transport, and it can be wheeled along via a large handle. There are two trays on either side of the cooking surface to hold prepared food. You can keep grilling while you feed the masses! This compact little grill is a great way to make yourself a hot meal on a chilly fall day before watching your favorite game.

Tailgating Gear: Moon Lence Outdoor Ultralight Portable Folding Chairs Carry Bag Heavy Duty

A tailgate got its name from the tailgate of a truck, which can be pulled down and used as a seat.

It all fits into a small little bag about the size of your forearm, so it will be easy to transport around.

To set it up, you simply shake out the support legs (which are connected together with a bungee cord like a tent) and stretch the mesh seat over it. Within seconds you will have a lightweight, super durable little chair that you can bring with you anywhere. There is no better way to enjoy the environment of a tailgate than with a cold beer and a slightly reclined chair. Grab one today and enjoy the fall!

Tailgating Gear: GoSports Indoor/Outdoor Ladder Toss Game Set with 6 Rubber Bolos, Carrying Case and Score Trackers

If the music, the food and drink, and the sports talk aren’t enough to keep you entertained before the kickoff, then bring along this simple little yard game for hours of entertainment. To play, set up the ladders facing each other at a reasonable distance. Grab three of the rubber bolos and toss them towards the opposite ladder.

You get one point for hooking it on the top rung, two points for the middle rung, and three points for the bottom rung. The first person to 15 points wins. Set up is simple. Simply piece together the ladders and you are ready to go! This game is great for children and adults alike. Just be careful you don’t get so into it that you skip the professional game entirely.
