Don’t let your next UNCW tailgate be a total flop! Here are some basics to make sure everything goes smoothly for the next big game.

Don’t skimp on food and drinks.

Once your food and drinks run out, your guests will too! Make sure you have more than enough apps and beer before the big game. Some easy appetizers that everyone will love are buffalo chicken dip or homemade veggie trays with hummus.

Ice, Ice, Baby

Speaking of food and drinks, don’t. forget. the. ice. Nobody likes a warm beer! Remember to grab a bag of ice for your cooler before you check out at the store.

Leave early to beat the rush

Get to your tailgating spot before the crowd does! Be sure to arrive at least 3 hours before kickoff to make sure you have enough time to set up, tailgate, and tear down before arriving to the game. If you rent games with us, we’ll tear those down for you so you don’t have to worry about it 😉

Play some well-known jams

Play some tunes that everyone can enjoy! Classic rock, country, or hip-hop are three of the most popular tailgating genres. Check out our other location’s blog on the ultimate tailgating playlists here.
