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 !

Build Your Own Burger Toppings
Break out the buns and fire up the grill, it’s National Cheeseburger Day! Today we celebrate a classic meal that is near and dear to our hearts. The best thing about cheeseburgers, you can always build your own, stacked high with your favorite toppings. You can stick with your go-to or switch it up each time. Personally, we like to be creative and switch it up. Check out some of our favorite build your own burger toppings!
Chiles: If you’re like us, you love a little kick to your food. Chiles elevate any good burger with great heat and flavor.
Mushrooms: Grilled of sauteed mushrooms make a great addition to your cheeseburger. We recommend using swiss cheese as it works as the best complement.
Avocados: Avocados are creamy and delicious, plus they make your burger more filling. More satisfying, tastier, why wouldn’t you add avocado?
LTO: LTO aka lettuce, tomato, onion. Sometimes you’re in the mood for a good old fashioned, classic cheeseburger. A little LTO will get you there.
Coleslaw: Coleslaw is commonly viewed as a side dish. But who needs a side dish when you can just add it to your cheeseburger?
Pineapple: Give your cheeseburger a more tropical feel by adding pineapple. Throw some BBQ sauce for a top-notch burger combination.
Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is good with bacon. Bacon is good on cheeseburgers. Therefore, maple syrup must be awesome on bacon-topped cheeseburgers. It’s simple science.
Fried Egg: If you’re in the mood for something extra, add some fried egg to your cheeseburger. We like to save this one for special occasions.
Mac & Cheese: It is a cheeseburger after all, make it extra cheesy and extra delicious.
Kettle Chips: Another side dish that is sometimes better off just on the burger. We prefer kettle chips over regular potato chips for the extra crunch factor.
Hummus: Hummus brings a little swagger to your cheeseburger. Brings more flavor and a Mediterranean flair to the plate.
Fried Green Tomatoes: Replace the old red tomatoes with some southern-style, bold fried green tomatoes. Crunchy and tangy these are top tier in our book.
We could easily go on for days with fantastic cheeseburger toppings, but these are on the top of our list. Try out these toppings for yourself if you haven’t yet.

Goose Island Lost Palate Hazy IPA. Juicy. Hazy. Mango(y).
Lost Palate is dedicated to Jonny, a long time Goose Island employee. Jonny, and brewer Quinn, ideated this recipe after Jonny’s recent victorious battle with cancer. The recipe was inspired after Jonny lost the ability to taste many flavors, an unfortunate consequence of battling cancer. He almost completely lost his palate and mangos and cinnamon were two of the few things he was still able to taste. We’re happy to say that Jonny is now a cancer survivor! This beer pays tribute to the flavors that were never lost.
Must be 21+ to buy – We ID. Please enjoy it responsibly. Not available in all stores.
