September 3rd is National Tailgating Day

It is officially football season, which means it is also tailgating season. Tailgating, to avid football lovers, is nearly as important as the games themselves. According to the National Tailgating Association, "It's not just about burgers and beers; it's a lifestyle." Do you want to impress your guests this season? Check out these tips to have the best tailgating experience this football season:

1. Wear Your Gear

The best part about tailgating is showing team spirit, so make sure you and your area are decked out to show your support. Whether you just wear a team's shirt or you go all out, getting together with friends to cheer on your team will make the experience of tailgating even better.

2. Arrive Early

A tailgating party can happen anywhere, whether it's in your driveway or at an NFL stadium. Either way, you want to make sure you have enough time to socialize and prepare for your tailgate party before the game. If you plan on tailgating at the event, it is a good idea to arrive a few hours beforehand to have enough time to set up your area and eat before heading in. If you are tailgating at home, make sure you have enough time to set up your TV or radio before everyone arrives.

3. Have Enough Food/Drinks

Nothing is worse than running out of food at a party. Make sure you have enough food and drinks for everyone by having your event catered by the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Have one less thing to worry about when you have your tailgating party catered. There is no need to stay up late preparing food for the next day, or making last minute grocery store runs because you forgot something. Life is just a little bit easier when you have your event catered by Lake of the Ozarks' favorite Italian restaurant.
