Finding a spot to tailgate can be difficult, especially if you haven’t planned ahead. Some lots fill up before late morning, when the average tailgate party begins, some lots don’t allow tailgating and others may just be the wrong environment for the type of party you want to host or be a part of. Instead of betting on that lucky spot on game day, there are plenty of options to secure your space in time for a great day of celebrating.

Sponsored tailgating parties are not only fun, but also bring more people together through great specials, local prizes and giveaways and general team spirit. Some restaurants will “sponsor” parties in their parking lots, with food and drink specials coming from their kitchens and bars for the partiers outside. There is often live music and a broadcast of the game so everyone can stay informed throughout the day.
