We're going to continue this topic on a weekly basis to give our readers a chance to pimp what they do to make their tailgating experience the best there is. Whether it be at the Baltimore Ravens games, other local sports events (Terps, Orioles - what?), let us know what you bring to eat, drink and play with as you await your team's game. The topics we will hit weekly will be:
- The Best Food
- The Best Drinks
- The Best Festivities
- The Best Gear
- The Best Gadgets
This week, instead of moving down the list and focusing on the best gear for tailgating, we're going to bring in Kim Ritchie, who works for the marketing company that represents The Classic Catering People - the official caterers of Ravens Training Camp. I have had the access and privilege to eat at the team hotel with other media and believe me, the food is excellent and plentiful! Classic Catering is holding a great contest for the ultimate tailgating experience that you can enter and win for you and your friends (just don't forget to bring the Captain Morgan). Here is the gist from her email to me:
I came across your blog and, given your recent entries about tailgating, thought you and your readers might be interested in Classic Catering’s Ravens Tailgate Sweepstakes, which is currently being hosted on their Facebook Page.
The grand prize winner of this sweepstakes will receive a Ravens Tailgate Feast for ten people, prepared onsite by a Classic Catering Chef on December 19, 2010 (for the Saints game). The Tailgate Feast can either be prepared at the M&T Bank Stadium parking lot OR at a residential location of the winner’s choice (within 40 miles of Owings Mills, MD). There’s also a second place prize, which is a Ravens Party Platter for ten people.
To enter the sweepstakes just:
1. Go to http://www.facebook.com/TheClassicCateringPeople
2. Click on the "Like" button.
3. Select the "Sweepstakes" Tab and complete the simple form.
Best of luck if you decide to enter!
Next week, we'll write about the best gear and gadgets that enhance your tailgating experience.
