Ultimate Guide to Tailgating
Fall has begun and football season is underway. That means the return of one of our favorite pastimes, tailgating! There’s nothing like getting together with your friends, enjoying good food and cold brews, and getting amped for the big game. It’s a tradition that will never get old! Here’s our guide to the ultimate tailgate.
When it comes to tailgating, there are plenty of great options. The first is a sub & sandwich platter. If you’re tailgating with a decent-sized group, sandwich platters are easy. They can feed the group, and they are good for bringing on the go and eating outdoors. They are fantastic for making sure everyone gets a good amount of eats. Plus, the PICS potato chips you brought to snack on are a great compliment!
The next option, grilling. If you have a dedicated griller in the group bringing your setup to the tailgate is a fun idea. Burgers, hot dogs, steak, sausage linksand more are all great options for gameday. Don’t forget the burger buns and hot dog rolls!
Now, let’s talk snacks and sides. We mentioned PICS potato chips. How about tortilla chips to dip into salsa or guac? Convenient and easy for travel. Potato salad, macaroni salad, and pasta salad containers are also nice options. They go great with grilled meats or sandwiches, and the small containers are very portable.
Can’t forget some cold beer to wash down the delicious food. For tailgating, a nice light beer such as Bud Light is a strong choice. You’ll be able to enjoy some cold ones, while keeping your head in the game. Rather than being filled up on heavier beverages. As always, make sure to drink responsibly!
Don’t forget to tap into our Simple Done line of products for the paper plates, utensils, napkins, and cups you need for tailgating!
We’re excited to have football back to get back to tailgating. Don’t forget to stop by your local Price Chopper and Market 32 all season long for all of your essentials. Here’s to a fun, successful season of celebrating !
