No matter what gets you outside for a parking lot party, you know that they call it “tailgating” for a reason! The tailgate of your pickup is the perfect home base for all of your activities, and your truck makes it a breeze to load up on all of the essentials you’ll need for a great day.
Here at our Toyota dealer in NJ, we know that a party centered around your truck is the perfect way to get excited before the game kicks off or your favorite band starts playing. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spice up your tailgate!
Throwing the Perfect Parking Lot Party
While one classic tailgate trick is to make snacks and sides ahead of time–think chips and dip, potato salad, and anything else you can keep in the fridge the night before–you’re going to want the main course to be fresh off the grill. Finding a compact grill with plenty of surface area for feeding the masses can be tough, but it makes a big difference. If you really want to impress the crew, invest in a grill that mounts onto your 2019 Toyota truck‘s trailer hitch mount while the tailgate is down!
Of course, a compact grill is essential for more than just mobility; it also saves space in the bed for other essentials like coolers, folding tables, camp chairs, and, of course, games! Corn hole is a favorite not just because it’s loads of fun and very competitive, but also because the boards are flat enough to easily stow away without wasting space. Pro tip: if you place each board at the far end of a parking space with one empty space between them, you’ll be darn close to regulation distance without having to measure.
If you can manage to catch a breath between all of your friends asking about your Toyota pickup, your next tailgate is sure to be as much fun as the event itself!
