The Patriots football season officially begins Sept. 8 when they take on the Steelers at 8:20 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. This means fall is upon us and it’s time to step up your tailgate game. Here are our best tips.
Recipes: The Food Network has you covered with its top 50.
Skip the cooking: If browsing 50 recipes isn’t your thing, consider picking up barbecue takeout from Sweet Cheeks, sandwiches from Moody’s Delicatessen and Provisions or a bloody mary bar to-go from Coppersmith.
ID your car: If expecting a bunch of guests, tie a balloon to your car so they can easily find you.
