Football season is upon us, and with football games comes tailgating parties. Who doesn’t love a little pre-gaming fun? Grilling out before the game and hanging out with family and friends can make your day even more memorable. Tailgating with one of our luxurious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans ups your tailgating experience to a whole new level!
To get the most out of your tailgating experience, you need to be prepared for the big day and know exactly what to expect. Here are a few quick tips to make sure your tailgating party is memorable one from start to finish.
You will more than likely want to show up 3 to 4 hours before kick-off. That will give you plenty of time to cook the food, play some games and just hang out with your group. For those die-hard tailgaters there is always the option to come back during and after the game to celebrate a victory or forget a horrible defeat. Your chauffeur will keep your belongings safe while you enjoy the game.
Picking a prime spot to tailgate might not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a tailgating party, but it can make your party a little more fun if you can find a prime location. If you can find shade or a grassy area, this would really be any ideal spot. If not, make sure you bring an extra tent or pop-up canopy to block out the sun on hot days. Some areas may charge more for prime parking locations. And in some cases, this may be a little too much for your party budget. You may have to make do with whatever spot you can find, so make the most of it!
There are rules when it comes to sporting venues. Whether it’s the parking lot or stadium, its best to know the tailgating rules prior to attending. This could be simple things like making sure all the trash is picked up before you leave or no unattended grills. You won’t have to worry about that since your chauffeur is also your party host! Do a quick online search before you plan your tailgating experience or ask friends who have done it before. Knowing the rules ahead of time may keep you from being asked to leave because you unintentionally broke the rules.
This is an obvious one, if you’re in charge of cooking you’ll need to bring the food and the grill. Try to think of everything you’ll be doing when tailgating and make a list. Utensils, plates, cups, garbage bags, as well as drinks. Once you’ve parked, more than likely you won’t be able to leave to pick up anything you may have forgotten.
Maybe you’ve been invited to tailgate at someone else’s spot. You’ll be the hero when you show up with a virtual lounge on wheels complete with an awesome sound system and air-conditioning if you need a cool-down. Hiring a professional transportation company means you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot and you don’t have to worry about monitoring your alcohol consumption.
