The first time I attended an Autumn tailgate, I truly thought I had gone to heaven. Some are pre-game to get the festivities in gear and some are after or during an event. The set ups can be lavish or rather creative using plaid blankets, old leather luggage or baskets to carry all the goodies. Mugs and piping hot cider, trays of cheeses and fresh fruit. Mulled wine or an Autumn Sangria in a carafe or pitcher and styled with sunflowers, pumpkins and a dog or two can be the perfect Autumn welcome to a Homecoming game.
What is your favorite thing to bring to a tailgate?
