St. Louis Football (and Baseball) Tailgating Checklist from the Chicken
Dear Football Fanatics,
(Warning: You will be given TOP SECRET info in this post)
Fall is in the air, and our favorite hometown teams are on the field. If you didn’t know, I take this time of year very seriously…to me nothing is more important than St. Louis football (and baseball) tailgating.
In fact, I am on a very strict training regiment for tailgating. Every morning/afternoonish I wake up, do a jumping jack, stretch out my beer opening hand, then do a lap around the block with my rolly cooler in toe.
Why do I do this? Well, because no one tailgates like the Dirt Cheap Chicken! I’ve been honing my skills for years and I never miss a game, which is why my friends call me “The Iron Chicken.” (Take that Cal Ripken!)
And like the crafty veteran I am, I’ve devised some pretty awesome systems to be the best! For example, I always shop at Dirt Cheap to save money, and I always bring a checklist with me.
To me, the checklist is like a quarterback’s playbook. I walk in the store, know exactly where and what I’m doing (occasionally calling an audible for something extra). And when I walk out of the store, I do a touchdown dance – no reason I am just that excited.
Now, usually I keep my checklist pretty secret, I don’t need anyone stealing my optimized mix of beer, liquor, wine, snacks and party goods. But…since we’re friends, I guess I can let you have a peak. Just remember don’t tell anyone!
(Tell your friend looking over your shoulder to cover his eyes! No peaking either)

Ok, so the cat is out of the bag…do you like my list? I guarantee it is the blue print to a good time!!! Just remember, be responsible! The number one party foul is not staying in the game!
If you’re heading downtown for a game, remember to live life on the cheap with Dirt Cheap!!! I have a location right down the street and even on the way!
Go Cards! Go Rams!
