Posted by Dave On November - 6 - 2011

Veterans Day is this Friday, November 11, 2011. We’re getting an early jump on saying thank you to all of those who currently serve and those who served our country in military service. Maxim Magazine model Melanie Iglesias also wanted to say thank you so she put together this video. Links follow the video.

Maxim Magazine Thinks We Know Tailgating

Posted by Dave On August - 21 - 2011

Have you seen the September 2011 issue of Maxim Magazine yet? It is probably on newsstands everywhere by now and subscribers have had a copy for a few weeks now. If you have a copy nearby, flip open to Page 71. This is what you will see…

Maxim Magazine Page 71 September 2011

We checked in with the guys who run Tailgate Wiki and they told us the web traffic has definitely seen an uptick since the the Maxim issue came out.

(As a side note, if you haven’t been over there lately, you may want to take a trip over there. Lots of good info being added daily along with new teams. It’s definitely worth checking out especially if you plan on taking in any road games this football season.)

Back in July I was interviewed by Maria Fontoura, Senior Editor for Maxim Magazine talking about, what else? Tailgating. The phone conversation was about 30 minutes long and you can see she used about 30 seconds of it in the magazine. But despite much of the interview hitting the cutting room floor it is still nice to be mentioned in such a high profile publication widely distributed amongst what we believe is a highly qualified tailgating demographic.

This is the second mention in a major magazine publication in just as many months. Back in July, ESPN the Magazine Featured PolarHeat Quad Chairs and listed them available for purchase in our online store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com.

Okay, so enough with the tooting of our own horn and saying “Look, magazines think we are cool.” Make sure to come back and visit us everyday this week. We have some cool stuff coming up including our review of bacon flavored vodka (yes, you read that correctly), a product review and hopefully video demonstration of sunglasses that open beer bottles and even a reader submitted customized grill creation that you have to see to believe. Hint: This guy actually made the swing arm look like a tiger’s tail…

Even though the Americans got bounced out the World Cup and there are more Vuvuzelas than tailgaters in the parking lot, America seems to be very much interested in soccer. Another reason to keep your interest high is Marisol Gonzalez. She’s was crowned Miss Mexico Universe 2003 and has appeared in a few Mexican soap operas. But her tribute to the game of soccer makes her the Mid-Week Eye Candy for this week. Links to follow:
