It’s tailgating season and we are once again turning to the Commissioner of Tailgating Joe Cahn  for some insight into the “must haves” for the perfect party.  To learn more about Joe and his tailgating adventures, be sure to check out this recent feature at


  • Jumper cables. After a great tailgate party, some would love to stay in the parking lot forever but everyone might not share that thought.
  • Toilet paper. The MVP (most valuable product) of the parking lot. Don’t get caught with your pants down in a Port-A-Potty with no TP.
  • Plastic trash bags. A dedicated tailgater always respects their surroundings and leaves it  clean.
  • Extra ice. There is no excuse to ever run out of ice. Just bring a full extra ice chest and enjoy.
  • Rain gear. When everybody else is in their car or truck, you’ll be cookin’!
  • First aid kit. Just in case that football hits you in the head.
  • Sun block. Even if you burn the food, there is no reason for you to burn.
  • A friend. Change the life of a loved one. Bring them to their first tailgate party.
  • Comfortable shoes. Sometimes we forget how much we visit and with the right shoes you can walk to your stomach’s content.
  • Antacid. With all the foods consumed at the tailgate, we need some help. Remember defense wins championships!
