7 Ways to Kick Off Your Next Gameday TailgateSeptember 30, 2016
Just as fall temperatures drop making way for sweater weather, football season heats up – and so do the tailgates. In Mountaineer Country, the party before and during the big game is as important as the event itself. And the food being served is the most fundamental part of the tradition.
So whether you are cheering for the Mountaineers, the Fighting Falcons, the Huskies, Polar Bears or Bees, you will find the fixin’s for some great tailgates at these local restaurants.
You might think of Muriale’s Italian Kitchen for your after-the-game feast, but they offer the perfect tailgate option. Want to impress your fellow fans, then order their large pans of rigatoni and salad. No one will walk away hungry.
From sandwiches to meat and cheese trays, Hermosilla’s Deli Market will help make your tailgate a success with little effort on your part.
Nothing says tailgating like freshly baked pepperoni rolls. And nothing says pepperoni rolls like Country Club Bakery. They have been pulling them out of the oven for over 90 years so you know the process has been perfected! Eat them plain or stuff them full of cheese and peppers. Either way, you may just forgo the game.
Still not convinced that the tailgate may be more important than the big game? Then you haven’t heard about Colasessano’s Tailgate Special. With 24 hour notice, they’ll bake up a half pan of sausage & peppers; 30 Meatballs; 36 bone in or boneless wings; 2 pizzas and 18 wings or a full pan of house-made chips & ranch. Mix and match or order them all. You’ll have plenty to share.
Be the hero of your next tailgate with Wings Ole’ – a West Virginia tradition for more than 30 years. No tailgate is complete without French fries & bleu. Add a couple buckets of wings and your tailgate will be complete. Or order their Game Day Special – 2 buckets of wings, 2 orders of celery and 4 containers of their famous bleu cheese dressing.
With their eight sauces, Hoops Cafe has your craving for wings covered. And just for fun, throw in a few orders of fried pickles.
Woody’s Hot Dogs is a much of a tradition as football itself. With 3 styles of sauce: regular, mild and hot – along with their signature tangy slaw – they are a great addition to any tailgate party.
So whether you go with meatballs, pizza, wings or pepperoni rolls – it’s game on!
Who will you be rooting for this weekend?
