iPhone Applications Help You Tailgate Better

Posted by Dave On July - 24 - 2008

Image via CrunchBaseIf you have an iPhone you probably already know that the numerous applications you can place on it are extremely popular. And it is about damn time they start to create iPhone applications that can come in handy at your next tailgate party. Do you really need to update your myspace page while tailgating? Doubtful. But what if you have some hottie asking you to mix up a batch of Scarlet Buccaneers and you need a refresher on the recipe? iPhone app Pocket Mixologist to the rescue.

This handy application contains over 1,500 drink recipes and even has a search function. You can search for drink recipes based on types of alcohol included, cocktail category, taste and even situational recipes like non-alcoholic drinks or breakfast drinks. You need to download the app using iTunes and it will run you under $10. This application is compatible with the iPhone, iPhone 3G and the iPod touch. See a demo at Cocktails DB.

That’s one application that is actually useful. iBeer is just for fun and it will make your iPhone appear to look like a mug of beer. If you tilt the iPhone, the beer inside will shift from side to side much like a real glass of beer. If you shake the iPhone, the foam will rise giving you a bigger head on your iBeer. Want to see it in action? Of course there is some guy on YouTube giving you a demo on how it works.


Tailgating Video: Tallahassee Jimmy Buffett Tailgate

Posted by Dave On July - 24 - 2008

I am posting this video not because the Jimmy Buffett tailgating action is all that impressive but because the intro to the video made me smirk. I’ll admit I have seen better but the first minute was semi-funny. Plus, it never hurts to have another mention of Jimmy Buffett when you are talking about tailgating.

If You Must Keg Stand, Get A Spotter

Posted by Dave On July - 22 - 2008

No one claims that tailgating requires athletic ability to compete on the level of an Olympian. You do have to practice common sense. Take this guy for example. His execution of the one handed, non-assisted keg stand is flawless. All the way up until he does a face plant.

Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers

Posted by Dave On July - 20 - 2008

firewire_close-up-grill.gifShish kabobs at a tailgate party are always a big hit. The problem with them is the transportation of the skewers and the work it takes to grill them. On your way there you have to make sure they lay flat and are in a hard container or the skewers will poke through your marinade bag. Also, flipping and turning each individual skewer is a pain and requires you to bring along tongs. I recently discovered a new product called Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers that solves both of those problems. Now you can marinate your kabobs in the bag on the skewer for easy transport to the stadium. The best part about Fire Wire? You can leave the tongs at home and turn your kabobs using your bare hands.

I recently had the pleasure to test out Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers. See my video review below.

A few features of Fire Wire you did not see demonstrated in the video:

If you have a round grill, Fire Wire allows you to use every inch of your grilling surface. Straight skewers can’t wrap themselves around the edges of your grill like Fire Wire skewers can. Also, the flexibility of these skewers makes them easy to marinate right in a plastic bag. The ends of Fire Wire skewers are sharp enough to puncture food during preparation but will not poke a hole in a plastic bag. When placing food on the skewers, the stainless steel construction of Fire Wire will not give you splinters in your fingers like wooden skewers have a tendency to do.

Check out the official video the folks at Fire Wire put together.

The added length of these flexible grilling skewers means that one Fire Wire skewer replaces two wooden skewers. Lately I have been coming across tailgating supplies that are environmentally friendly and Fire Wire fits that mold too. Fire Wire is dishwasher safe (always a big plus with my wife) and you can use them over and over again. Wooden skewers are a one-time use and then you have to throw them away. Not the case with Fire Wire. And because they are stainless steel you never have to worry about rust or a metallic taste transferring to your food.

Yet another video, this time a guy tested out Fire Wire using a heat gun on the ends of the skewers.

Fire Wire Grilling Skewers come in a package with two (2) skewers inside and cost $14.99 plus $5.00 shipping. I would suggest getting three or four packages. By buying multiple packages you pay one flat shipping fee and can feed a lot of people at your next tailgate party. (Orders to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and other international locations may require additional shipping charges. Please Contact Us to coordinate proper billing of additional shipping charges.) To buy a set of Fire Wire Flexible Skewers you can get them from our online tailgating store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com or you can just click HERE.

Tailgating Video: The Electric Slide

Posted by Dave On July - 19 - 2008

These gals were caught on film doing the electric slide during a UCF tailgate. Hardly do I pass up drunk, college chicks dancing while tailgating but I do have to take umbrage with this particular one. I mean come on ladies. The electric slide? Seriously? Hey girls, 1994 called. It wants it’s lame ass dance back.
