Let’s hear it for NC State. Yes, it’s that time of year again: football season which means it’s time to pull out the grill, grab some friends + start planning a winning tailgate party.

Looking to be the best tailgater in the lot? Here are four tailgating tips that will turn your tailgate into tail-great.

🎉 Rep your team with decor

Make your presence known and get your fellow fans excited about the game. Flex your team pride by decorating your car, tent, or table with team colors (or the team mascot). A fun way to take this tip to the next level: Have themed beads, tattoos, flags, and photo props for your guests.

🍂 Make sure guests are comfortable

Have portable chairs on hand so your guests can sit back, relax, and enjoy the pre-game festivities. Pro-tip: If the forecast calls for cooler weather, bring a basket of blankets to ensure it’s the party that stays cool and not your guests.

🍻 Have drink options

While cold beer is a tailgate favorite, it’s not everyone’s drink of choice. Have options like soda, seltzers, wine, water, and non-alcoholic beverages available to accommodate everyone. They’ll thank you later.

🥜 Keep the snacks stocked

Finger foods are a huge part of any tailgating event. Enter: Hampton Farms in-shell peanuts. The peanuts are roasted with flavor packed inside the shell. For those who want a kick, have Cajun Hot Nuts on hand, and, for your saltier friends, bring the Salted Fancy Peanuts. Bonus: Impress your guests with this easy to make Spicy Fried Peanut recipe.
