Tailgating. It’s a uniquely American tradition. The practice of drinking and eating before opposing teams (or forces) duke it out goes as far back as the Civil War, according to Vice. Before fighting Union troops at the First Battle of Bull Run, Confederate supporters came to the Manassas, Virginia battlefield with food and booze.

Modern tailgating has gotten pretty involved. It’s no longer bringing a sandwich and a six-pack and sitting on the back of someone’s pickup truck. Now, people throw elaborate parties and might even spend the whole game entertaining fellow fans from their parking space. To ensure you’re prepared for game day, we’ve teamed up with [yellow tail] to come up with some of the best tips and tricks to maximize your tailgating experience.
