Most of you tailgaters would like to have your tailgating space look as good and put together as possible. Just because you are in the middle of a parking lot doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice class while tailgating. We’ve all got that folding utility table that fits nicely into our cars and SUVs but normally it is just hanging out looking a little bare. Some may utilize one of those plastic or vinyl tablecloths but those can be a bit tacky. Introducing the Tablevogue.
I am going to come clean here. When I was first approached by the folks over at Tablevogue to give their tablecloth a try, I was a little skeptical. After all, what’s the big deal? It’s a table cloth that fits over a utility table. Well, I was right on that account that it is just that simple. When I actually used the product, I found it was very useful for tailgating. Take a look at the Tablevogue in use below:
As you can see in the above photos, the Tablevogue is tailored to the exact dimensions of a utility tables. Just unfold it and place it on top of your table and it fits perfectly. No more adjusting it to see if one side is hanging too low or one end is too short. Just make sure the corners are in place and the Tablevogue fits like a glove.
Another thing I like about the Tablevogue is that the sides act as curtains so you can use the underneath portion of your table for storing tailgating gear that needs to be accessible at some point, but out of the way for the most part. The Tablevogue covers those items up and gets them out of plain sight. For those tailgaters that like to live on the edge and bring in “tailgating contraband” such as beer kegs without a permit, glass bottles in a “no glass” zone, etc., Tablevogue provides the ultimate cover. (Not that I am encouraging any of you tailgaters to go out and break the rules but I do live in reality and know that some of you like to bend the rules.) Another great idea for the Tablevogue would be to hide DJ speakers underneath your table. That way if security is looking for amplified musical equipment (and you are playing your musical at a reasonable level, Snoop Dogg) there is no need for them to stop by and poke around.
We took the Tablevogue tailgating with us to the Chargers/Bears pre-season game this past weekend. Naturally, as you would expect, we used our table to hold a multitude of things including using it as a buffet table. We served up some great Carne Asada complete with guacamole and salsa. As with any tailgate, there are going to be some drips and spills on your table. While at the parking lot, we would spot clean the spills with either a paper towel or one of those pre-moistened anti-bacterial wipes. The food drips and spills came right up and didn’t leave anything behind. Upon returning home, we put the Tablevogue in the washing machine and we couldn’t tell where there was previously a drip or spill. So we just folded it up and placed it back in the tailgating kit and now it is ready to go for next weekend’s football game.
The Tablevogue comes in a variety of colors including lots of neutral colors. You may want to get a neutral color Tablevogue if you go tailgating for college and pro football and the teams’ colors you root for don’t match. The Tablevogue comes in three sizes to accommodate whatever length utility table you use for tailgating. They offer a 34″ x 34″ square Tablevogue for card tables, 30″ x 72″ size to handle the most common tailgating table, the six footer and they also have a 30″ x 96″ Tablevogue to cover up those eight foot tables. All Tablevogues go “floor length” which on these standardized utility tables is 29 inches. For those tailgating, these go to “asphalt length”. The card table size is priced at $39.99 and the 6′ sized Tablevogue is priced at $49.99.
