As we finish another gorgeous summer here in Charleston, we can’t help but start to get excited about tailgate season! Yes, it’s almost time for our favorite rivalries to resurrect, beer to brew and our weekends to be filled with family and football. Whether you sport Clemson orange or Carolina garnet (or maybe another alma mater all together!), one thing we can all agree on is proper food and drink is a MUST during the big game.
With game-day food as a top priority, we’re eager to share our inside tips for elevated tailgating.
1. Stick to the classics
Sure everyone can throw some chips into a bowl, but when that gets stale, try our famous Black Pepper, Sea Salt and Parmesan Hand-Cut Chips for a captivating crunch!
Craving a slice of cheesy pizza? Our Mini Tomato Pies can conquer your craving, but they are small enough to eat in a bite or two. Make sure to order extra, these go quick!
2. Fresh is festive
Make sure to balance those cheat-worthy foods with some fresh produce. Not only do ripe fruits and veggies provide the nutrients you need, but the color is as pleasing to the tailgate display. You can read more on colorful cuisine here.
3. You don’t need to be the ‘grill guy’
With Hamby Catering & Events, you can enjoy a juicy burger during halftime, without having to miss any of the game’s action by standing outside at the grill. Our Mini Slider Station is a fan favorite. Served with lettuce, tomato, sharp cheddar and chipotle aioli, these “three bite burgers” are sure to please a (hungry) crowd! Our Sweet & Sour Meatballs are another great item to include at your football kickoff party.
We’re also excited to announce that this fall we’ll be offering new Tailgating Packages to elevate your party snacks and simplify the stress of planning.
Some party options include:
- Sideline Sandwich Sampler – assortment of pimento, egg salad, chicken salad and shrimp salad tea sandwiches, served with our famous hand-cut chips ($32)
