3 Tips for the Ultimate Tailgate Party

It’s that time of year again. Football season is here, and with it comes a favorite pastime of fans across the country: tailgating! DISH knows tailgating is about more than just the game, it’s about tradition. These pre-game rituals provide an opportunity to get together and enjoy each other’s company and celebrate the glory days. Regardless of how your team is doing on the field, tailgating is a tradition that never disappoints.

Here are 3 tips for tailgating in style this fall:

  • Set your game plan – Plan ahead with your tailgating group before you leave home. Set a meeting spot, reserve parking spaces and learn the rules of the lot. Coordinate with your tailgating group to plan your food and drinks ahead of time, and do most of the preparation at home. That way, when you get to the stadium, all you have to do is put on the final touches.
  • Grab your gear – In addition to food and drinks, you’ll need some game day gear for the hours before kickoff. Don’t forget to bring a portable grill, plenty of charcoal, a large cooler, ice, folding chairs and plenty of decorations to show support for your favorite team. To entertain your guests, theTailgater by DISH is the perfect way to catch up on live games, wherever you are. The Tailgater is an automatic portable satellite antenna that can accommodate your HDTV.

  • Grill and chill – Now that you’re set up, enjoy the tailgate! Grab your lawn chairs, fire up the grill, relive your own glory days and make new memories.
