Tailgating Must-Haves

Football season is upon us, which means tailgating season is close behind.

You want to make sure that you are well prepared for the big game and that your tailgating center stands out in the crowd. To that end, check out some of these nifty party gadgets.

Coleman RoadTrip 285 Portable Propane Grill

Besides alcohol, the staple of any good tailgating party is a solid grill. This grill is capable of 20,000 BTUs over a 285-square-inch range. It is not overly huge, but provides enough space with three burners to get the job done efficiently. The grill is easily foldable and becomes a rolling travel bed when it is fully packed up.

Pelican Elite Cooler

This is a bit pricey on the list of tailgating items, but it will be worth it. Plenty of room is offered (up to 45 quarts) as well as freezer-grade gaskets and sealing to keep your drinks cold in ice all day long. Even better, ice can last up to 10 days in this cooler, saving you money and more trips to the store. The wheels make transportation very easy and an integrated bottle opener is available for all the fancy beers.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3

Another staple at any good tailgating party is popular music. Create your ultimate game day playlist and let the karaoke begin! The Megaboom is extremely portable and has sound quality that can compete with any large speaker. 20 hours of battery life will keep the tunes rolling before, during, and after the game. If your neighbor has a Megaboom, you can even pair the devices together to get even better sound. And if it starts to rain, no worries… it’s waterproof!

Lightning Cornhole Electronic Scoring Boards

Grill… check! Cooler… check! Music… check! All that is left is a game to keep people up and on their feet, and there’s no game more popular at a tailgate than cornhole. This cornhole board comes with light-up numbers on the front boards and a rechargeable battery with a 12-hour lifespan. On the back of each board are up and down numbers that you can use to control the score. It can even be customized to showcase your favorite team!

You will be the hit of the parking lot with all of these amazing amenities. Be sure that your car comes with extra security so that no one tries to take these spectacular gadgets!
