Football season is here, which means Sundays spent watching games with family and friends.
You may be doing that at home or a friend’s house, but chances are you might also do some tailgating—and to do that, you’ll need a few
accessoriesthat you can easily transport in your car.
In addition to
food and drinksof your choice, here are some of the items you’ll want to pack in your car for the big game.
Folding chairs and tables
Of course, along with those food and drinks you bring, you will need a place to put them, and also a place to relax while enjoying them.
There are plenty of options out there, but we found a few favorites.
If you just need chairs, the
Coleman Camping Chairis extremely popular and has a built-in four-can cooler.
If you want a set, the
NFL 3-Piece Tailgate Kitwith all team options comes with two chairs and small table.
If you want a folding chair that combines both chair and table, check out the
ONIVAfolding chair that has its own personal table, as well as pockets to hold personal items.
Finally, if you’re looking for more of a portable bar table, the
Best Choice Products Portable Pop-Up Bar Tablemay be perfect for you.
Of course, every good tailgating party needs an excellent grill that cooks well but is also easy to transport.
Weber Jumbo Joe Charcoal Grillis compact but has a larger grilling area, making it the perfect tailgate companion.
Another option to consider is the
Weber 121020 Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill, which can hold about six burgers and has an easy locking lid for portability.

Some people like to bring TVs or radios to the game. If you do, you might also consider bringing a portable power system, like the
Togo Power Togo Power Pioneer 330.
If you are willing to spend a little more money and are going to have a big tailgating party, the
MILIN Portable Power Stationcan charge nine pieces of equipment at once.
Some type of game
It’s always fun to bring along some kind of game to a tailgate party. It could be as simple as a football to toss around. But you could also bring along a
toss game setthat has targets to make a game of catch even more fun and competitive.
Another good option is a portable
Large cooler with lots of drinks
Finally, every good tailgating party needs a cooler to keep those drinks cold.
Best Choice Products Outdoor Steel Rolling Cooler Carthas a catch tray and bottle opener, but if you want something more simple the
Picnic at Ascot Travel Cooler with Wheelsshould do the trick.
Then there’s the
Coldbreak Brewing Equipment Jockey Boxfor the serious craft beer drinker, which includes two taps.
BONUS: Trash can
Something you may not consider is a trash can when the party's over. You don’t want to leave a mess, so consider throwing the
