We did it! We took what we loved and made it into National Day. We recently had our National Tailgating Day proposal accepted and the first ever National Tailgating day will be this September 3, 2016.
That is the first weekend of college football. There will never be a better time to gather your friends, go out to the big game, fire up the grill and crack a frosty beverage.
Tailgating is something near and dear to my heart and I think it is for many reading this, as well. I hope you find as much happiness in tailgating that I do and please have fun tailgating year round!
Full press release:
Thanks to each of you for being a fan,
President Tailgating Challenge

We attended the SMU vs Baylor tailgating event on Friday. This was the first game of the season for both teams. SMU had a 'white out' plan for their fans to come in white attire. We located a pay lot and set up shop. Some of our goodies that people drooled over included:
The Cruzin Cooler: Had quite a few friends test drive this out and LOVED it. EVERYONE was asking where to get one, what it was and so on. There was at least one Cruzin Cooler vs Golf Cart race during the tailgate:)
The Traveling Breeze Cooling Chair. Yesterday it was HOT. Heat index around 100. Having a chair with built in fans was a fan favorite to come by and get some cool air blown on them. Yes this thing works!
The Kool Max Cooler: This may have been may favorite. Earlier in the day the microphone I ordered came in. Did I mention this cooler has 350 sound system and is also a PA system (meaning I could allow the world to know my thoughts on all thing tailgating) We listened to music the first half of the tailgate and the second half we plugged in the mic to help get the fans pumped up and have some laughs along the way. This cooler also serves it function as it held a 30 pack of cold beverages, bottle of champagne, 6 bottles of water and food.
The EZ Hitch Tailgate Table was great as it has an added umbrella that really stands out and allowed all of our friends who Ubered in to find us quickly.
The tailgating was a blast and the fans were all super friendlly on both the SMU and Baylor side. We attended the game and it was a nail biter in the first half. The SMU stadium rocks in the fact that they sell beer and they allow you leave at halftime and come back into the stadium. Baylor rolled in the second half and we called it a night after.
Shout out to Baylor and SMU fans at the game!
Until the next tailgate. Remember don't HATE just Tailgate!

The pic below shows off some of the products but the Cruzin Cooler was so popular it was hard to keep it around the tailgate!

TELL HANGOVERS GOODBYE!
With tailgating comes the chance of having a little too much adult fun and the chance of feeling less than remarkable the next day. We have had the chance to experiment with a variety of product s that claim to help your hangover.
In testing these products we found an unlikely combination that helps to start working before you begin imbibing and then a follow up product to take the edge off the following day.
With all anti-hangover products we know that if you drink way more than you should then there may be little help, but if you pair the Forget Hangovers all natural vitamin patch with Blowfish for hangovers together as a one two punch you will feel MUCH better than doing nothing.
The Forget Hangover patch should be applied before you begin consuming alcohol. It is a patch that releases vitamin B to help combat the damage the alcohol is causing. Then when you awake the next morning take two of the Blowfish for hangovers to feel like a champ. Blowfish for hangovers are effervescent tablets that dissolve in water and have a very mild taste that is very easy to drink.
These are two products that would pit themselves as rivals, but we believe its the perfect combination to help you this tailgating season. Give it a shot and let us know how it works for you.

Football tailgating is amazing in the early part of the season when the weather is nice, but what do you do when it gets COLD out there before the big game.
Some call it quits and stay home. Others man/woman up and layer up in their clothes to stay warm. Either way we do not want you scared to tailgate because of the cold. Here are a few products that can make your tailgating experience much better during these winter months.

Well the final 4 in college football was announced today: Alabama vs Ohio State and Oregon vs. Florida St.
Alabama and Oregon will be hosting the first ever college football playoff tailgating. These fans are going to the game will be able to be a part of history as NO ONE has ever tailgated for a college football playoff game, until now.
Let's break these two host schools down a bit further. Alabama has the long standing tradition as a year in year top top 5 five team that has had more success than almost any school dating back well before many of us were even born.
Oregon is the new kid on the block but has been as good as Alabama, or close to it, for the past few years. Oregons top alumni created Nike and they get the coolest gear to wear, bar none.
We are talking about tailgating though so who will host the best tailgate this first ever year of playoff tailgating? Oregon is the 'sexy' pick to go with as they are on the cutting edge of everything cool, but not so fast my friend I'm going with the Tide as they will be tailgating in the South in the winter and I'm going out on a limb and thinking that the weather for the Alabama game will be much warmer than the in game in Oregon. Not to be too biased but from my experience the SOUTH has the best tailgating that I've ever been a part of and this will be no different Alabama should WIN this tailgating head to head matchup.
Have other thoughts let's hear it!

We all have heard the saying that practice makes perfect. Well this is true in all things in life, especially tailgating.
We get it and know most tailgaters are only active during football season, but there are many reasons why you should keep your tailgating skills honed in the offseason.
1. tailgating injuries: Tailgaters never get injured, right? Wrong, we have seen it all too many times where people have fallen off a tailgate, ran to catch a pass and fallen down, try to open a drink and hurt their hand. We even saw two men race each other in the street and one face planted. So YES injuries can happen, but with proper off season training you can reduce the risk of injury to you and your tailgating crew.
2. better tailgates: Think about it, the more you practice your craft the better you become. Training in the offseason may open up ideas and new products you see that will help you tailgate better when football season rolls around.
3. less waste: Learn how to properly open your beer so it doesn't shoot out the top, make sure if you pop bottles you keep the bubbly in the bottle, spill your drink less. All this comes with practice. You can expect to take 8 months off from the gym and then go in and dominate like you did before.
4. ITS FUN: come on if you had to read this far to convice yourself to tailgate more often then.....get it together!! Tailgating should be a year long tradition for all!
While we can't wait for football season we will continue to train in the in 'offseason' to be even better than last year.
We hope this has inspired you to perfect your tailgating prowess. Now go out there and DO WORK!
