September 21,2017 | Lifestyle

It’s the game before the game! Football season is kicking off, which means it’s also time to tailgate! Whether you’re rooting for your alma mater or celebrating your favorite NFL team, we’ll make sure your tailgate is always a win with these easy tips:


Stand out in the crowd


Looking to make your tailgate the champion in a crowded parking lot? Personalization Universe will help make your tailgate one of a kind. You can create custom grilling sets with your official tailgate name, a football wall sign to decorate your home tailgates, personalized NFL Mugs engraved with your name and favorite team, and much more!

Take the tailgate home


Teams aren’t the only ones that can have a home-field advantage. If you can’t make it to every game, you can still cheer your favorite team on while enjoying all the comforts of home.


AARP members can use their Schwan’s discount to have all the food needed for the perfect home-turf tailgate, delivered right to their front door. No stadium or grocery parking lots required!


Don’t have enough time to prep a game day meal? There’s no need to fumble around in the kitchen. Just order online from Outback Steakhouse and have a fully made meal at your doorstop or available for pickup. Plus, AARP members save 10%.


Save on game-day groceries


As a loyal fan, tailgating every game can get expensive, so having a good game plan before hitting the grocery store is important. If you’re tailgating at the stadium, then make sure to get items that are already prepped and you can easily toss on the grill or plate on-site. If you’re enjoying game day from home, you’ll have more time to experiment with new recipes. You can even try coordinating your food to match your team’s colors.


There are now a variety of options for AARP Members to save on groceries. Check them all out here.
