Additional Pro Tips for the Ultimate Tailgating Experience: 

- Check with stadium rules and regulations on the type of fuel allowed on site. Some facilities might not allow open flame grills, meaning no charcoal or wood pellets so packing a portable propane stove may be best. 

- Precook what you can ahead of time to save time and let yourself enjoy the festivities more.

- Pack pop-up trash and recycling bins (like THESE) that are easy to pack up at the end of the event making clean-up a breeze! 

- Bathrooms situations can be... questionable at events like these. Skip the long lines and smelly situations by packing a portable toilet and our Peaks Privacy Shelter. With this set up, you’ll be done your business and back to the party before it’s your turn to toss at Ladder Ball.
