There are two critical questions you need to ask yourself before any big sporting event (such as tonight’s Monday Night Football game) – 1) what am I wearing? and 2) what’s on my tailgate menu?
With the temperatures cooling off in Chicago, my tailgate menus have shifted from light cocktails and dips to hot beverages and heavy food, with a side of faux fur. Tailgating in Chicago during the cold months is survival of the fittest – if you don’t plan right, you’ll never make it past the first quarter. I love planning for fall tailgates with hearty menu items and my all-time favorite beverage, hot chocolate! I mean, who doesn’t love hot chocolate!? It’s how I have survived more than one -10 degree kickoff. But, my hot chocolate game is only as strong as the temperature of my hot chocolate. For tonight’s game, I’ve lined up all of my best plays from my seasonal playbook and I’m taking the field with a hot chocolate bar staring the Comfort Cup® by Chinet®.
