What time is it? It’s time for some football. Whether it’s college, NFL or high school, it’s one of the most anticipated seasons of the year for millions of Americans. And for those who can’t attend the big games in person, there are a million ways to enjoy the game in the comfort of your own backyard. Some people turn their garages into football havens, complete with half barrels, specialty grills and huge flatscreen televisions. Others turn their dens into their own personal tailgate entertaining space. It’s true, your home is your castle and you can tailgate any way you want. Here are a few things that will help you prep your tailgate space in style.
- Do you have a space where the television is the focal point in the room? A place where all your guests can see the screen once the game starts? If space is limited, consider adding a TV Lift System Cabinet to your room with a 360-degree swivel, allowing you to adjust the television for the ultimate viewing experience. Choose a model that’s finished on all four sides, like Adagio or Azura, and you can place it anywhere in a room.
- Where will you put the beverages? Is there space for a small refrigerator or cooler on wheels? It’s always a good idea to have your beverages accessible and cold. There are many inexpensive options to give your guests their favorite cold drink.
- What about snacks? It’s a good idea to place snacks throughout the tailgate space for the grab and go experience. If you’re offering hot foods, place them in an area that’s out-of-the-way to keep them in a safe zone. And if you have pets, remember to keep things out-of-reach.
- What about parking? Are there any requirements for your neighborhood that you need to share with your guests? Is there a parking lot nearby where you can provide a shuttle (in your SUV or van) to and from your home? Thinking ahead will lead to fewer problems once the game starts.
