    Last year we had a noon game and we got to the field at 8am. There was about 25 of us. We took up quite a bit of room, so people around us were getting pissy. All of a sudden my brother in law busts open a box of 30 live lobbies straight from Maine. There was a defeated hush all around us as he held up the first two in celebration of our 930am lobsters. By 10am, everyone around us was begging for scraps.


    nice work

    are you the crew that i hung with a couple of years ago with the heated saki?

    i usually am involved in the food for my crew... and i don't like lobster... so i never go that far

    plus it would seem too messy?

    we have little or no women in our crew so we keep it caveman style... plus we're a bunch of booze bags... so the food is secondary


    i always take a couple of pregame immodium when at the stadium...

    by tuesday i regret it ;)

    i am going down to tailgate for the eagles game on sunday. i don't actually have tickets to the game, but we are tailgating with friends that are season ticket holders. festivities start at 11 for an 8PM game so it should be fun heading into work on monday. :)

    can't wait!!
  • Oh yes, and it has been a great season thus far, except for losing to those one dimensional Bears.:(:)


    Yea well the Bears have to win some games this season. lol

    i love the tailgate... although last week with the 4 o'clock start it gave you way too much drinking time ;)

    Hey, I hear ya... our tailgate always starts at 8am, regardless of kickoff. :D Those late kicks are bad fucking news when you've been drinking beer since 8:30am.

    Detroit Lions season ticket holder for 9 years, so I love my tailgating, seeing as how with their lousy-ass teams over the years it's usually the highlight of the day. I tailgate over at Eastern Market with about 15 other guys and we're headquartered out of a 1970 Winnebago (think Cousin Eddie's "RV" from Christmas Vacation). We usually grill up burgers, brats, wings, kabobs, hot dogs... when it gets colder we'll usually have at least one Sunday where we bring 2-3 Crock-Pots of chili down... plenty of chips and crap like that. Lots of beer (Miller High Life, Stroh's, Black Label, Busch... no fancy beer allowed at our tailgate), Bloody Mary's and Bailey's/Kahlua for the morning coffee mixers... plenty of cheap booze (Mohawk Blackberry Brandy is a cold-weather staple) for shots. Any newbie to the tailgate has to bang down a shot of brandy as soon as they arrive... rotgut initiation. :D

    We've also got some beanbags to throw, DirecTV dish with a TV inside... the guys next to us built a stripper pole (wood base and an aluminum pole and we drill it right into the asphalt to anchor it... safety first) 'cause there's a lot of girls that come through passing out free passes to the local establishments. Usually doesn't take much to get them on the pole... you should see the cash flying then!!!!

    Anyone looking for a nice, easy tailgate dip... here's one you can whip up in like 10 minutes:

    2 jars of jalapeno Cheez-Whiz (jar with the purple label/lid)
    2 cans of Campbell's Bean w/ Bacon soup (the condensed stuff in the small can)
    16 oz. tub of sour cream
    (you can use the fat-free sour cream, but it can be watery... I recommend the reduced-fat at the minimum)
    Green onions, chopped

    --Rinse and chop the green onions and set aside

    --Empty the Cheez-Whiz into a microwaveable bowl and add a splash of milk; microwave for 20-30 seconds (just want to loosen it up)

    -- Add 2 cans of soup, tub of sour cream, and green onions

    -- Mix together and add chili powder, garlic powder, and/or cilantro if you want.

    Tastes fine at room temperature, or you can keep it warm in a small crock-pot or fondue pot. If you do this, however, bear in mind that it'll tend to cook down a bit and get watery... I suggest keeping an extra jar of Cheez-Whiz on hand to add back in at the end to thicken.

    I brought a 5 gallon jug of water for the lobster pot and cleanup...we just threw down a two-dollar tablecloth and threw the shells, etc on that and then chucked it in the dumpster when we were done. It was actually pretty easy. Never had saki at a tailgate, so I don't think it was me.

    Always gotta be a rugby guy throwing his weight around... ;)

    I love watching American football, but rugby was a more fun sport to play. I miss those days in college.

    ALthough my mom probably wouldn't approve...we have quite a bit of family at our tailgates...

    The dip is actually pretty good... now picture enjoying it while watching some 21-year old stripper that came through the lot to pass out t-shirts sliding down it in an effort to score about $35 in singles... :D It's not a complicated piece at all... just a small 3'x3'x6" square platform, and the pole assembles right in for easy transport. 4 brackets on each side and just anchor it down with some concrete screws.

    I wish I knew how to pull pictures off of my cell phone. ;)

    thanks buddy, i have at last found the reason for the obesity problem in the States. ;)


    I'm a Cowboys man... have been for years.. Troy Aikman years in actual fact.. if truth be told i thought their cheerleaders were the hottest... but i still check out their scores and stuff...
    oh scary... 40000 morbidly obese christians wearing fanny packs invading europe is probably the least scariest thing since I watched an edited version of The Care Bears movie in an extremely brightly lit cinema.

    well since dallas is typically our biggest game of the year, it'd be a tough one to get. besides, i kind of prefer watching football on tv...i need the yellow line. :D tailgating i love, though!
  • Oh please... you don't eat the shit every day. :D Probably make it 1-2 times a year.

    Plus, it's a tailgate. You're supposed to eat bad food and drink lots of beer. If you want a candy-ass tailgate with Brie cheese and salad and mimosas and turkey burgers, go to a fuckin' UM game. :D
  • intodeepintodeep Posts: 7,215
    Woohoo!! Go Gamecocks!!

    I think the Florida game is going to be crazy fun for tailgating. That and of course the Clemson game.

    I won't make the clemson game this year i'll be in NJ for thanksgiving. :(

    That said two years ago was a mess. 12 hours of drinking is and then losing is not a good thing.

    Here in Cleveland there is a mobile strip club that parks in the Muni lot. It's 10 bucks to get in and it's just a giant rv turned into a strip club. I'm not even sure if it is legal, I'm assuming no. I have not been in there, but my friend went in and took pics with his phone.If you see the giant purple bus then your in for a party

    Not sure we could get away with that at a college game...too bad too, because lots of drunk college girls running around...they could be making some money!!!

    Tailgating at a Pearl Jam show has more of a beer-guzzling feel to it...or tailgating at any concert for that matter. For football, it's more about the food (beer is still prevalent). Really it's about hanging out before a show/game and getting tuned up for it...

    That said...

    Torino '06 was cranked at my last football tailgate!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dude, there's tailgating before just about any event in the states. I know a few people from the board that tailgated before seeing Immagine In Cornice when it played on the big screen on the night of its release.

    They've got one of those around here... an old RV and then one that's an old school bus... The Booty Lounge.

    No, not an insult... just a general statement. I'm all fired up with my University of Michigan hate 'cause the UM/Michigan State game is Saturday.

    Sometimes I forget we have such a global board.

    We do it at Twickenham before the rugby and also at Royal Ascot. Except at Ascot we have tables with cloths, flower arrangements and wear top hats and tails. We're fuckin weird!!

    I would like to come up there and tailgate with your family.
    I will bring some cool food.
