What is a tailgate party?

Tailgate parties are informal gatherings before sporting events usually, foot ball and baseball games for example. They are thrown in the parking lots before a sporting event begins. Although they are informal, some people to great lengths to make a big deal out of a tailgate party. Often tailgate parties are off the cuff gatherings of friends preparing food and getting together before the big event starts. People arrive in the parking area and try to reserve spots for all the cars they know will be gathering for their own tailgate party. Either that or they pick one car to be the meeting point for the actual tailgate party. Real diehards have even been known to drive large campers to the games and host the tailgate party from those. Usually every member of a tailgate party brings part of the meal that everyone shares or each person brings their own food and all the members of the tailgate party eat together and party together before the game begins. People often bring portable barbecues, coolers full of food and drinks, folding or collapsible chairs to sit on and even folding tables. Although they are an impromptu event, tailgate parties do takes some planning if it is going to be a full gathering for a group of people. Most people arrive many hours before the game is scheduled to begin and make a full day of the tailgate party and the game itself. Basically fussy or simple a tailgate party is a gathering of friends in the parking lot, to eat, drink and socialize before a scheduled sporting event. It is a way to build the anticipation of the game too. Mama Nono
