Monday Morning Wakeup Call: Ole Miss

Ole' Miss got the job done this weekend, and the gifts keep on giving.  Here's to a great week of football!


Tailgate Lot News Digest #5

Believe it or not, no alcohol can ruin a tailgate.  Just ask the Nebraska fans that suffered that fate below.

Nebraska tailgating spot quiet after arrests

A popular Nebraska football tailgating spot was unusually quiet for the weekend game that took place one week after a burst of violence that led to 13 arrests.

This week, Indian Center officials ran a fence along the perimeter and posted signs that said, "No walk-ins, alcohol or drugs." Police officers were also on hand. 

Tailgating comes to Shreveport's Red River District

Hundreds have gathered in the Red River District to watch the game. It's SPAR's first ever tailgate experience. The event features a giant screen of the game, bars were open, food vendors are there and of course there's fun for the kids, too. Organizers are happy with the crowd and see fun, family events like this to be the Red River District's future.

SPAR says the next tailgate will be held on October 25 for the LSU game and will have more vendors and kids activities.

Don't Get Sacked on Game Day: Execute Healthy Tailgating Plays

Football season is here, and we are ready to gear up for some fun and delicious tailgating. Whether your pregame party is at home or at the game, healthy planning is essential in order to keep your weight from stepping out of bounds.

You don't have to pass on tailgating in fear of sabotaging your waistline. Contrary to what most people think, healthy tailgating can be done. Let's be honest, who wants to deprive themselves of pizza or buffalo chicken wing dip? It's okay to enjoy some of your favorite foods, but try to be mindful not to overindulge.



Never Too Old For A Party Bucket

Even the older folks know how to have fun at a tailgate.  PARTY BUCKET!  Or as we call it, the Anti-shotgunning.

"Hey Harold, get me another straw!"

"That's right honey, drink it all."


Cleveland Cop Gives Helping Hand with Bong

If only all police were this attentive to the needs of the people.  Here we have one of Cleveland's finest giving a helping hand to a citizen in need of a beer bong.


Hornitos Lime Shot

Beer is one of the mainstays in the tailgate lots.  But there has been a movement to bring more flavor to the ordinary tailgate party.  

One such drink would be tequila shooters, where someone takes a lick of salt, does a shot of tequila, and a bite of lime to finish it off.  That's a lot of extras to lug around in your car.

Enter Hornitos Lime Shot. Hornitos Lime Shot is the perfect accessory for any tailgate as it simplifies the tequila shot occasion by combining Hornitos Plata 100% blue agave tequila with the refreshing taste of lime and a hint of salt. You don’t need to worry about packing salt, lime and knives when they head to the field, as Hornitos Lime Shot combines all elements into a great-tasting shot in a bottle. Not Just Any Tequila will do!

When I broke out the Hornitos Lime Shot, the tequila drinkers were ready to go.  Everyone agreed that the taste was "on the mark."  Now enter the non-tequila drinkers.  Almost every single person was hesitant to give it a shot.  After debating, most tried it out.  And remarkably, to a person, everyone LOVED IT.  The lime and salt balance out the tequila perfectly.

The tequila purists might think that this isn't a true high quality sipping tequila, but that isn't what it is supposed to be.  This is a tequila shooter in a bottle, and it does that quite well.

You can find out more about Hornitos lime shots from their website, as well as their social media accounts.

Monday Morning Wakeup Call: Labor Day

Labor day.  First weekend of college football.  Ahhh, life is good.


The Great Plate

Check out the Great Plate, a plate with an integrated drink holder in the center to keep a hand free.  The drink holder is large enough to handle most cans and bottles (including coozies!), as well as most disposable cups.



We've all done the awkward clutching of our drink at the tailgate lot when holding a plate of food, trapping the drink between your arm and chest.  The Great Plate hopes to end this nonsense once and for all.




Made from flexible and durable polypropylene, the Great Plate is dishwasher safe, recyclable and proudly made in the USA. They also stack on top of one another to save space when not in use.
The center of the Great Plate is for storing your beverage, while the outer rim is deep enough and wide enough to hold just about any food item you like.



The Great Plate also floats, flies like a frisbee, and works well as a coaster on uneven surfaces, such as furniture or grass.

You can pick up the Great Plate from their website.

The Coolest Cooler, Revisited. Now Funded!

Back in November, we spotlight The Coolest Cooler Kickstarter.  Well, they are back in full force, having already DESTROYED their goal.  They have already passed the 5 MILLION mark!


They didn't just relist the Coolest Cooler; they went back to the board and made this thing even more awesome.

Check out the rundown of features:
- 18v battery powered rechargeable blender
- Removeable waterproof bluetooth speaker 
- USB charger
- LED lid light
- Gear tie-down
- Cooler divider / cutting board
- Extra wide easy rolling tires
- Integrated storage for plates and knife
- Bottle opener


The COOLEST has a split lid design so you can get access to ice for the blender without letting too much warm air in.  This also lets you keep your cups in the cup holders so you don't have to put everything on the ground just to grab another cold drink.

The split lid design and removable divider give you some great packing options.  You can keep your cocktail ice separate from your regular ice. Or you could put ice only on one side, pull the drain plug and the other side becomes a totally dry refrigerator, perfect for keeping sandwiches and any other perishable food cool and dry.
