Official Tailgating Check List

Posted by Dave On August - 18 - 2007

Drill Blender AngledThis easy to use and printable check list will help you make sure you don’t forget anything at home. Print off this check list the night before and you will surely have everything you will need packed and ready to go for an on-time departure and early arrival at the parking lot.

The first thing that should be on the top of everyone’s list are the game or concert tickets. If you leave those at home, you will be really bummed out. Of course you can still tailgate the event without tickets but once the game or the concert starts, you will be the only one left in the parking lot. If you don’t already have your tickets, RazorGator is one of the best places online to find great seats from season ticket holders who can not go to all of the games.

This list is broken down into three categories: Must Haves, Would Be Nice and Now You Are Just Showing Off.

(We also included a large list of tailgating games commonly played and some not so well known to give you ideas of stuff to do while your grill is getting hot.)
