|Vikingstailgate.com Tailgating Checklist
- The Goalposts, our world famous and well travelled landmark to help mark the loaction of where we are on Tailgate Sunday.
- at least 2 coolers full of ice, beer and pop. Ya, I said two coolers!
- an expandable and durable table.
- a propane Heater, and extra propane tank or portable fire pit with plenty of wood. In the winter months, this bad boy is a life saver
- Rubbermaid Toy Box, chock full of nerf footballs, Vikings beads, stuffed Viking toys, strip bar coupons, playoff towels from previous years, and various other tschotzkes handed out in the lot over the years.
- Rubbermaid Picnic kit with:
- squeeze bottles of Ketch-up & Mustard
- platsic forks, spoons
- napkins (wet wipes in a bottle is preferred)
- aluminum foil
- plastic bags (zip locks)
- frying pans, and other utensils etc.
- Jumper cables. Especially in the Minnesota winters. Over the years we have rescued, or had to be rescued (jumped that is) no less than 6 times. The lot can be brutal if the car doesn't start, and people wear down their batteries more than they link.
- Wet Wipes, Napkins and Toilet paper. Especially if you are a female tailgate party contingent, you won't want to "do business" in the porto potties without some TP, wash or wipe of some sort. Guys could care less. (see
- Plastic trash bags for clean up. The Washington Avenue lot used to pass these out when you paid for parking, it's a good idea to keep plenty of bags in stcok- and would it kill you to separate out the recycleables? C'mon.
- Golf Umbrella, rubber raincoat, tarp, and other wet gear. You never know what storm front is coming.
- Pepcid or Prilosec, or some sort of antacid that helps keep your stomach in line. Beer, and junk food tend to bring misery to the bellies.
- A med kid with an ice pack, tylenol etc.
