Tailgating is just as big of a part as college life as throwing up in public and getting so drunk that you forget at least two parts of your name. However, it can require a lot of different parts that can make the experience a huge hassle. A new Kickstarter campaign aims to put the entire tailing gating experience in one box with something called the “Instagate.”
This new party in a box idea takes all the essentials of tailgating from the forks and knives to the grill and sticks it all in one box. You simply bring the thing to your next tailgate party packed with your favorite food and beverages, unpack it and get ready to party. The box serves three purposes. It carries all the stuff you’ll need for a tailgate party. It works as a cooler that can hold up to 30 pounds of food and drinks packed with ice. It also folds out as a table that also works as a beer pong table.
The kit also comes with a portable, disposable barbecue grill so you don’t have to lug around a heavy grill just to cook up some hot dogs and hamburgers for people at your tailgate party. It even comes with cooking utensils like a spatula, tongs, a meat fork and a lighter with a bottle opener built into it so you don’t have to go fishing for one every time you want to open a beer.
We wish someone would have thought of this years ago. Imagine all the time, money and wasted strength we could have saved to put towards eating and drinking more at our tailgate parties.
