When tailgating, don’t be like this guy…

The Booze Smuggling Checklist for Tailgating Season

Posted by Dan Stern On September - 1 - 2015

We’ve all been there.  You and I have both tried to smuggle booze into an event at some point in our lives. Whether it’s at an NFL game or a college game, smuggling alcohol will always be better for your wallet than spending $10 on a beer.  Plus, it’s just fun to do.  Tailgating season is finally upon us, so check out this list of booze smuggling gadgets, and start making your game plan!

Concert tailgaters tend to be a different breed. Concert tailgating is a lot more of high volume and rapid delivery of alcoholic beverages and not a lot of grilling and food consumption like you see for sporting event tailgating.

Those in Pittsburgh were treated to a Luke Bryan concert and with it came a lot of tailgating. This poor dude probably spent a ton of money on his ticket and never made it into the concert. And to add to it, the WWE fans will appreciate this remix dubbed from the WPXI’s 11 pm news report.
