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.

Tailgating Video: Jimmy Buffett Jones Beach, New York

NYC Parrotheads tailgating before the Jimmy Buffett concert at Jones Beach.


2-girls-playing-1-medium-qty.jpgSummer tailgating is great because not only does daylight savings allow for prolonged tailgating but the warm temperatures means the tailgating babes are wearing more revealing clothing. Playing beer pong while summer tailgating is not quite as awesome because by the time you get to your final cup, the beer has been sitting out in the open air for a while. I recently discovered a product called the N-Ice Rack that is a freezable rack in which you place your beer pong cups. The purpose of the N-Ice Rack is two fold. First and foremost, it keeps your beer pong cups on a block of ice while playing. The extra added benefit is that the holes provide unifying placement of the cups and eliminates the potential of those annoyingly, sloppy racks.

I had the chance to test out the N-Ice Rack for myself. Check out the video I put together.

n10202580_37157039_2667.jpgAs you saw in the video, the two major functions of the N-Ice Rack is to keep your beer cold and to keep both sets of cups exactly in the same formation without any sloppy racks. If you skipped the video, here are the highlights:

  • Test was conducted on a Mid-July day in Southern California.
  • Outside air temperature was 96 degrees.
  • After pouring the beers, (10 inside the N-Ice Rack and one outside) in just 15 minutes the beer sitting out had reached 75 degrees. The Beer in the N-Ice Rack was 46 degrees.
  • After 45 minutes, the beer outside was 87 degrees and the N-Ice Rack beer was 47 degrees.
  • I drank both beers to make sure the thermometers were not misreading the temperatures. In fact the thermometers were spot on with their readings and I nearly gagged on the warm beer.

An extra added benefit for tailgaters is that the N-Ice Rack can double as a cooling device inside your cooler while you are on your way to the stadium. That’s translates into less ice you have to buy from the liquor store.

You can get your own N-Ice Rack directly from our online tailgating store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com for $19.99 + $8.00 shipping via UPS to anywhere in the U.S. If you get your own N-Ice Rack, I guarantee you will never regret having to drink the final cup in beer pong ever again.
