It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Of course we’re all wondering whose going to win the big game, but why not just let cute puppies predict the super bowl outcome?
Whether you’re in Phoenix or Philadelphia, the ‘polar vortex’ has chilled everything down just a bit this year, driving would-be tailgaters indoors (and inspiring this ‘masterpiece’.) Lucky for you, Chaheati is here to save the day! We’ve assembled the definitive guide to an outdoor party in colder climes. You can thank us now– you’ll be too busy later, accepting high-fives and basking in the glow of your post-game awesomeness.
Watching the Game
Obviously, if you don’t have a massive, all-weather tv setup, you’ll need some other way to broadcast the game. Smaller pop-up screens can work well with a decent projector so everyone has a good view of the commercials game.
Don’t forget about seating! No one wants to sit on your milk-crate-and-plywood benches, no matter how reminiscent of your favorite college bleachers. Plan ahead for some comfy seating. Natch, we recommend the full line of Chaheati heated camp chairs. Already have camp chairs? Now you can heat them too! Our new Heated Add On converts your chair into a pocket of cozy comfiness for maximum game enjoyment.
Food and Beverages
Second only to the actual televised event is…food! Tailgating outside in winter requires a little more planning than a crudite tray, but it can also be waaay more yummy. Consider slow-cooker meatballs and keep hotdog buns in a makeshift ‘heater’ for an easy meatball sandwich. Chili is a perennial fave- kick it up a notch with a hot sauce sampler.
Although the die-hards will still want a cold beer, your other guests will appreciate some warm beverage options. Haul out your crock pot for some hot buttered rum or go family-friendly with some white hot chocolate.
On the Sidelines
There are always a few party guests who don’t understand Superbowl etiquette. They talk through the commercials, want you to explain basic game rules, and are clearly only ‘here for the beer’. Providing alternative activities is a great way to accommodate these guests and enjoy the game properly.
Basket-pong brings everyone’s favorite party game to wherever the party is happening, and ensures that no one will pull a hamstring lugging the big pong table around. For the under-21 crowd, printable football bingo is sure to score the extra point.
So sit back (in your warm Chaheati chair, of course), relax, and enjoy the game. Your epic outdoor tailgate is about to begin!
Football season is almost over. Only one more big game to go. Conference championships were pretty awesome and I’m hoping Super Bowl XLV is even better. You’re probably not planning to tailgate for the game, at least not outdoors where your trusty Chaheati is required equipment. And to those of you going to Dallas for the game, it’s going to be a chilly 45 degrees at kickoff – have you packed your Chaheati?
Whether you’re hosting a get together or heading to a friend’s, be sure you have all the ingredients for a FANtastic Super Bowl party – good friends, a whole lot of beer, great food and a really big TV (yes, size does matter). No matter which team you’re rooting for – Green Bay or Pittsburgh – you’ll be the party MVP with this super easy, spicy shrimp recipe. It’s great because the less time you spend in the kitchen, the more time you spend in front of the television cheering on your team (Go Packers! Go Steelers!), watching commercials and laughing with friends.
Here’s the recipe:
Chaheati “All-Season” Heated Shrimp
- In a plastic bag with a zip closure, combine a pound of peeled shrimp with olive oil, chopped garlic and a pinch of salt.
- Add a few shakes of Tobacco (the more you add, the spicier the shrimp). You can add some chili powder if you really want to bring some heat.
- Marinate 20 minutes, thread onto skewers then grill or broil.
