What's that mean for the fans? It’s tailgate season and with it comes one of the best smells known all around the world; the subtle variation of grilled meat infused with beer and parking lot asphalt. Although tailgating will look a little different this year, there is one thing that won’t change...the food! So if you want your customers to score big with their guests by hosting an amazing tailgate party, Waitr is here with the playbook.

How to Tailgate in 2020

This year has certainly presented its challenges and the college football season is no exception.  With most stadiums not allowing tailgating and only 25% capacity, it safe to say that this season will be looking a little different. 

However, where there is a will, there is a way. 

Create Game Day Packs

Family meals have shown a strong presence during the pandemic, and they are continuing to make way with "Game Day Packs" for football season. We recommend creating these group meals on your menu if you haven't done so already!

Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, is serving game day with a taste of Louisiana. From Oct.1 -Nov. 30, the Tailgate To-Geaux Bundle will be offered as a pre-game platter. The Louisiana inspired bundle is $50 and serves up to eight people. Included are boudin balls, Cajun Queseaux, cheeseburger sliders, and boneless wings.

Raising Cane’s is offering tailgate packs to-go filled with your choice of 25, 50, 75, or 100 chicken fingers, fries, Texas toast, cole slaw, and Cane’s sauce. This allows for customers to set up a quick and easy tailgate at home without the cooking.  Raising Canes is even doing a tailgate challenge where customers can skip out on the infamous wing challenge and join in on the Raising Cane’s Tailgate Challenge!
