The school year began and I got insanely busy, but it’s finally fall break and I am trying to get back to the blog a little bit! Back to school also means back to football. Saturdays around here are spent tailgating and wearing purple (and eating way too much delicious food along the way).
Ironically, the nicest game of the year weather-wise was the first one. Can we please get that cool front back now?
I like tailgating, but sometimes (most of the time) it’s exhausting. One Saturday we enjoyed brunch in downtown Baton Rouge before heading to campus. We went to Cocha and it was amazing!
We even got the whole family in town for homecoming. We won’t discuss the results of that game.
But when you see a purple sofa, you take a F•R•I•E•N•D•S photo!
Before I go, here are some LSU tailgating tips from someone who’s been doing this a while!
LSU Football Tailgate Tips
- Drink water throughout the day. Have a beer, have a water, repeat.
- Bring hand sanitizer or hand wipes.
- Go to the Parade Grounds and get free stuff (some weeks). I got a free clear bag just for signing up to win a free Nissan. You can always unsubscribe from emails!
- Walk around and tailgate-hop. It makes the day go by fast and you’ll see all kinds of fun stuff.
- Wear tiger print and NOT other wild cat prints. We are not leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, zebras, etc. If you hear a stranger call you out on this, sorry – it’s probably me.
- Wear closed-toe shoes. If you insist on a heel, go with boots. Bring bandaids just in case!
- Staying until the very end of the game will sometimes make your drive home easier. If you see a lot of people leaving in the 4th quarter, wait until after the Alma Mater and the traffic will probably have died down. Plus, staying the whole time is fun!
- Don’t start tailgating too early. The football game is the whole point of the day, you don’t want to be too tired to enjoy it. Trust me, I’ve been there!
And even though this season hasn’t gone how we hoped, GEAUX TIGERS.
