The Team at The Tailgate Life started the site because of our passion for tailgating. We began by going to The University of Illinois football games in the 1980’s, and grew from having just 4 of us using the trunk of a car, to having full sized charter busses take our group with tents, multiple grills, bar set up and games. There is no better way to spend a Saturday! This passion later extended to Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packer games as well. We think we have perfected the process, and want to share our expertise with those who share our passion for Tailgating!
