Fall is here, which means football season is in full swing. There is only one thing that is almost as important as watching the game for football fans – TAILGATING!
Before the game, cars pack into parking lots and tailgaters transform their new or used cars into mobile gathering venues. Here are some ideas to make your car the pre-game hot spot:
The basic must-haves for your tailgate are food, drinks, table(s) and chairs, cooler(s) and ice, plastic ware and utensils. One more must-have is the grill – not only to get barbeque, but it also comes in handy for when the season turns cool.
If you’re really trying to take your tailgating up a few notches, you may consider bringing portable phone chargers, wireless speakers and a portable satellite TV so that you and your guests can watch the pre-game action at the same time. Talk about cool points!
How your tailgate is set up and decorated will determine the amount of people you will attract. A festive pop-up tent with team colors and other fun decorations (i.e. balloons, erasable chalk ink markers, magnetic team decals for your car, etc.) can draw a crowd.
To ensure you find the perfect spot for your tailgate, arrive early to get first dibs on parking spaces. Sheltered spots to keep the sun, wind and rain away are generally a wise choice.
A tailgate isn’t really a tailgate without a car. If you’re currently looking to purchase a reliable vehicle and need help getting approved for financing due to bad credit or no credit, a dealer enrolled with Credit Acceptance can help you get started on your credit approval today.
