Video: Demo of the Tailgate PartyMate Table System

Posted by Dave On March - 4 - 2009

Back in June we introduced you to a new entry into the tailgating gear realm known as the Tailgate PartyMate. Simply put, it is two tailgating tables that are transported to and from the tailgate party via your 2″ tow hitch receiver.

Corky Bless, the inventor of the Tailgate Party Mate, put together two quick demo videos on the set up and take down of the Tailgate Party Mate. Check ‘em out.

You can buy your own Tailgate Partymate directly from our online tailgating store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com. The Tailgate Party Mate runs $249 + $20 shipping and handling. This item will ship directly from the manufacturer located in the San Diego, Calif. area.

Never Pay Retail Again For Beer Pong

In today’s economy we all could stand to save a little money. That’s why I am sharing with you a website I recently discovered that will help you save some of that hard earned cash on beer pong no less.

You have probably heard of those coupon websites like retailmenot.com or FatWallet.com. At those sites you punch in the name of the online store you want to buy from and the website returns online coupon codes that others have used and have decided to share. Not a bad deal but these sites cater to those online Big Box stores or other Ecommerce sites that have broad appeal to the masses. Getting coupons for tailgating might be a bit more tricky because it is a niche market. Finding coupons in order to continue your obsession with playing beer pong was nearly impossible until BeerPongCoupons.com was introduced.

Now you can price compare all different brands of beer pong tables and accessories all in one location. They have product reviews along with a way to submit new coupon codes you may have discovered. When price comparing, the site is even nice enough to let you know exactly how much you are saving over paying the regular retail price.

Coupons are updated daily and guaranteed 100%. Once a coupon expires, it is removed from the website so you only see what’s absolutely valid. There’s no membership fees, no giving up of your email info either. Just search the site, grab the codes and enter them at checkout. Not a bad deal at all.

If you are in the market for a new beer pong table and money is a bit tight, check them out at BeerPongCoupons.com.

Fail Stickers Help Shame Your Tailgate Party Guests

Posted by Dave On March - 3 - 2009

Do you have a tailgating friend who always tends to get overserved and pass out before game time? Want to teach them a lesson with a little good natured ridicule? Your public shaming prayers have been answered with the Fail Sticker.

FAIL Stickers - Publicly call out real-life FAILS

If you have spent any amount of time on the internet you have probably seen something posted on Failblog.org where someone is falling down or something is a result of incredibly dumb thinking. The big huge letters FAIL typed across the photo indicates someone screwed up badly. Now you can bring that to your next tailgate party with these stickers. Off the top of my head I can think of two great ways to use these stickers.

1) Slap one on the face of anyone passed out from too much alcohol consumption. Snap a few digital photos for posting on Facebook.
2) Stick one on the backs of opposing jersey wearing fans without their knowledge. Hilarity ensues unbeknownst to them.

If that wasn’t enough incentive, here are a few more selling points.

  • Clear Background – The real-life equivalent of typing the word onto the picture. This meant no useless backing to the sticker.
  • Correct Font – The best FAILS on the Internet used the Impact font because it’s the biggest and boldest of all the free Windows standard fonts.
  • Perfect Size – At 6″ wide and 3.5″ tall, the FAIL sticker is the perfect size for most applications. It is legible up to 200 feet away and easy to carry.
  • Proper Color – Staying true to the original Internet FAIL, these stickers use white text with a black stroke. It’s the most readable on just about anything you stick it on.

So there you have it. Shame your friends or opposing teams’ fans with your very own FAIL sticker. A 5-pack sells for $5, but a 50-pack sells for $25. (Just in case you have a lot of drunk friends.)

You can find your own FAIL stickers at, where else, FailSticker.com

iPhone App Plays All Kinds Of Tailgating Games

Posted by Dave On February - 27 - 2009

It just seems that it gets better and better for tailgaters who use an iPhone. We have told you about a number of iPhone applications that would appeal to tailgaters such as the iBeer, Beer Pong Challenge, Last Call, iBreath or even Pour 1 Out. Now comes along the Apple iPhone application that allows you to play a variety of traditional Tailgate Games right on you iPhone. The games included in this app are cornhole, Blongo Ball (Ladder Golf), washers or horseshoes. Check out the video demo.

Looks pretty cool to me. I have a Blackberry and I love it so I guess I will have to keep playing my Guitar Hero Mobile for BlackBerry until Blackberry comes out with Tailgating Games too.

You can download the Tailgate Games iPhone App directly from the iTunes App Store HERE.
