Any durable table will do, but the tables with folding legs and that fold in the middle make taking it from stadium to stadium much easier! Try this one we found at Tractor Supply Co.

It’s difficult to know exactly how much you’ll need to fire up the grill for the day. We searched and found that Wal*Mart has all you’ll need in that department. (Oh, and don’t forget the lighter & lighter fluid!)



  1. A Football



Whether you’re tailgating at a College Football game, NFL game, a NASCAR race, or even your favorite concert, it’s always more fun when there’s something to do! In our opinion, there’s nothing more simple, yet fun as playing a game of catch with a football from Dick’s Sporting Goods with your friends.
