Tailgate Like a Pro This Year!

August 28, 2017

Football season is starting to heat up and what happens on the field is only half of the fun. Dollar General has a few tips to help plan for the next tailgating party because delicious food, games and time with friends are all part of the game day excitement.    

Cook Handheld Food before the Tailgate
Spending the day in the kitchen instead of participating in the festivities is no way to enjoy the big game. Instead, plan ahead and prepare food before tailgate starts. Also, consider preparing handheld finger-food and appetizers like guacamole and chicken tortilla bites to allow family and friends to eat on-the-go while watching the game unfold on the field.

Plan Ahead with Disposable Items
Dollar General offers quality, name-brand products to use at any tailgating party. From disposable utensils and plates to garbage bags, beverages and cleaning supplies, consider creating a shopping list of disposable items beforehand to avoid big messes and to save time and money. Dollar General also carries private brand merchandise with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if a customer isn’t fully satisfied, they may return it for a full refund.

Gather all the Outdoor Necessities
Tailgating outside can require lots of food, water and safety precautions. Consider compiling a makeshift first-aid kit with sunscreen, bandages and sanitation whips. There’s no such thing as having too much water during hot game days, either. Be sure to stock up on extra water bottles to make sure family and friends stay hydrated and healthy. For a flavorful twist, add sliced fruit to the water for added taste.
