Tailgate Hacks That Will Change Your Life

We all know that the most important part of game day is not necessarily the game itself. Tailgating is almost – if not more — fun than any other part of the day. You’ve got the perfect parking spot, the brats are cookin’, the beers are flowing … it’s glorious. Want to up your game even more? Try one of these hacks, which are bound to take your parking lot party to the next level.

Keep it clean:

Try using a flag spike for paper towel roll-away prevention and easy tearing! If there’s no grass in site, a plastic hanger works just as well.


Trashcan out of a collapsible laundry  hamper — this can also double as a bag to pack up your tailgate items when you’re done. So simple!



Pack those muffin tins:

Perfect for serving condiments or … wine!


Make edible alcohol:

These watermelon slices are super portable, delicious and they’re soaked with tequila. Get the recipe here.


Find a use for cupcake liners:

Keep your snack (or tequila soaked watermelon) from dripping while also keeping bugs out of your drink!


Make ice tray drink mixers:

Condense your wine and drink mixers by freezing them in ice cube trays. Your bevs will stay chilled and easy-to-serve without getting watered down.
