Video: NASCAR Michigan June 2013

With most of the country digging out of snow and wintery weather, I thought this would be a good video to share. The shortest day of the year has already passed and the days are only getting longer from here on out. So why not share a video from the summer that features NASCAR tailgaters with three beer pong tables going at the same time, a massive cornhole tournament and the pinnacle of the tailgate, a massive slip-n-slide that ends at the flip cup table.

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #124: Jessica Vaugn Edition

Posted by Dave On March - 21 - 2013

Right off the bat, we need to issue an apology. The apology is the lack of updates and content being added to TailgatingIdeas.com for the past two weeks.

Although it would be nice to blame our lack of activity on drinking too much while attending Epic Beer Fest in San Diego, that would not be true. The truth of the matter is our lack of activity was due to our fearless leader, yours truly, being a monumental dumb ass.

Long story short, in an effort to clean out some files and photos that I thought were unused, I deleted them and ended up screwing things up pretty badly. The big issue was the inability to post new content and when you are running a blog, kind of hinders your ability to, well, blog. But the good news is thanks to our wonderful web hosting company, we are back up and running and able to post photos of Jessica Vaugn. Links following the eye candy.

Video: Michelle McCunn Goes NASCAR Tailgating

I know the NFL season is officially underway. I know college football is just starting out too. But tailgating at NASCAR races has not slowed down one iota during the summer. Here Michelle McCunn gives a nice look into what it is like tailgating in the infield at a NASCAR race.

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #108: VCU Pom Pom Girl Edition

Posted by Dave On March - 30 - 2011

Although basketball is not a sport normally thought of as a sport we tailgate prior to, the nation’s attention has been grabbed this month by college basketball. The fact that Virginia Commonwealth University got into the tournament and has advanced to the final four is nothing short of remarkable. So in honor of the VCU Rams shocking the world, this edition of the Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper features a VCU Pom Pom Squad member. To be honest, I am pulling for VCU or Butler to win it all and knock off basketball royalty Kentucky or UConn along the way. Links follow the eye candy:
