Three Simple Tips For Successful Homegating

Whether you’re interested in who wins the game or turned on by the food and libations, tailgating is a big deal this time of year. But not all tailgating has to take place in a dusty parking lot, and that’s when homegating enters the competition.  These tips will easily turn your home into game central.

Keep Your Eye On The Game

You mean you don’t have a big screen TV on the deck? You do now. With the FAVI J5-PICO-HD projector, which is about the size of your cell phone, and the companion FAVI 72-inch portable tripod screen, you can set up an extra game viewing area anywhere you want, including outdoors.

The FAVI J5-Pico projector is about as small as an iPhone.

Keep It Hot

Emblazoned with your favorite NFL team logo, the portable Crock-Pot Cook & Carry slow cooker comes with an easy locking lid and a rubber gasket for a worry free seal when you’ve got to keep the food hot for the duration of the game.

Keep It Chilled

Whether you’re drinking beer or sweet tea during the game, the idea is to keep it icy cold. Consider these insulated Atlanta Falcon tumblers from Tervis, available in 16 and 24-ounce sizes.
