A Concert, a Tailgate, and Cocktails, Oh my!

Gimpy's birthday was back in April, and he is a huge Dave Matthew's Fan, so I got him tickets for this Memorial Day Weekend.  We were able to drum up some additional friends, and turned out a 30 person tailgate.  Yay!

We made a ton of jello shots to start the day, packed up our coolers of beer and snacks, and brought the new little grill I bought at Walmart.  It was a terrific deal!  Only $25 for a small propane grill, and then gas itself was super cheap too.  It turned out to be one of the best investments I could have made, I fully intend to use it more this summer, and next Fall during tailgate season.

I made a big batch of guacamole, turkey burgers, cheddar beef brats, and some killer jalapeno mango chicken sausages.  I am going to find the brand and add that here for you guys.  I also made some veggie skewers, which were also a surprising hit - you never expect people to want veggies at a tailgate, but they totally do!

Unfortunately we were too drunk to take pictures of the food, so I promise those for next time.  In the meantime, here are some lovely images of me grilling and people waiting hungrily for food!
