What are your NFL tailgate necessities?

Viewing parties and tailgate get-togethers are less than a week away.

Don’t get too excited. I don’t have any pinteresting new recipes. At its core, this post is still just a daily poll, one more appetizer (you see what I did there) before footballs are thrown, dropped, carried and fumbled on Sunday.


But after you answer the question at hand, won’t you stick around and populate the comment section by sharing your tailgating specialty? It could be four-meat meatballs, a cheese dip that will make any taster renounce all other cheeses, or something you deep-fry that would have never occurred to sane people.

To phrase today’s question a little more specifically, if you’re at a Seahawks party, what culinary item must there be, either provided by the hosts or brought by you? What one item must be present, without which the gathering is but a shadow of its true potential?

What food is essential, in your mind, to a tailgating party, either in a living room or the back of a pickup truck?


Without which food item is a Seahawks party or tailgate event incomplete?

Now you’re hungry. I don’t care what time it is where you are. You’re famished. I’m sorry, but not really.
