Tailgating With Flabongo: The Woman Friendly Beer Bong

Posted by Dave On May - 28 - 2008

hot_flabongo_girl.jpgYou’ve seen (and probably taken) quite a few beer bongs while tailgating. You probably still have that old funnel and tube from college stashed in with your regular tailgating gear. Times have changed though. You want a way for your tailgate party to stand out yet you still want to pound an entire beer in under 10 seconds. Also, your tailgate is missing that special something that will bring over those attractive young ladies from three parking stalls away. The simple answer to both of those needs and desires is to get yourself a Flabongo.

A Flabongo is exactly what it looks like. It’s a hallow plastic flamingo that holds over 36 ounces of liquid. (That’s three cans of beer for the mathematically challenged.) This isn’t just some lawn ornament you liberated from gramma’s front lawn. This is a highly efficient, tremendously rapid beer delivery device.

The configuration of Flabongo is genius in its design. There is a square hole in the belly of the bird and a hole in the beak. Simply pour a beer into the tail end of Flabongo, place the beak to your mouth and when ready to consume, tilt the bird skyward. Let Sir Isaac Newton’s law of universal gravitation take effect and you are now bonging a beer via the Flabongo. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Dave On May - 3 - 2008

news_wrap.jpgNo matter what kind of tailgater you consider yourself to be, this weekend’s NFL mini camps unofficially opens up the football tailgating season. Oh sure, the college football spring games have mostly come and gone and there were plenty of people tailgating those events. However, mini camps help to open the tailgating season for the NFL tailgater. Don’t believe me? Read my guest blog on The Ultimate Tailgater to find out how I really feel about NFL mini camps. If you are not going to read that, check out what’s been happening this week in regards to tailgating. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Kenny Chesney The New Jimmy Buffett?

Posted by Dave On May - 2 - 2008

kenny-chesney-tailgating.jpgI had the opportunity to read my colleague Stephen Linn’s blog post on The Ultimate Tailgater and it got me to thinking. Is tailgating before a Kenny Chesney concert replacing the raucous party atmosphere that is tailgating prior to a Jimmy Buffett concert?

I will admit it. I have never been to a Kenny Chesney concert nor have I been to a Kenny Chesney tailgate party. I have been to a few Jimmy Buffett tailgate parties and they have been the experience of a lifetime. I think so highly of tailgating before a Jimmy Buffett concert I placed it as one of the items to put on your tailgating bucket list. Read the rest of this entry »

news_wrap.jpgAlright, I will admit it. I normally have the Weekend Wrap up and out there by this time but I have a good excuse. The NFL Draft was this weekend so I am a little late.
