The much anticipated act of tailgating doesn’t necessarily take place during traditional happy hour times, but is undeniable that the hours spent preparing to cheer on your favorite team are indeed some of the happiest of all. Tailgating isn’t for the faint of heart – you have to pick a location, plan menus, set up tents and most importantly of all, stock the bar.
