The portable grill is packed and the trunk is loaded with a case of beer — are there any other tailgating essentials? Yes, lots of them. While tailgating is meant to be a group effort and an afternoon of frivolous fun, it doesn't hurt to be properly equipped to ensure an even better time before the big game or that killer concert. 

The tailgating necessities don't end with chips, dip, and a package of hot dogs. After the beer is tapped and the grill is fired up, it’s time to enjoy the day and what better way to do so than with the right tools. Rain or shine, we’re determined to turn your ordinary tailgate into an entertaining extravaganza.
