Game On! Your NFL Game Day Tailgate Party Checklist

NFL season is here. The game we’ve all been waiting for all year is finally making its season debut this week.

And if you are like most of us, you’ve been doing everything you can to get prepped for the best matchups of the season.

Can Cleveland deliver on the pre-season hype with star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. as their newest addition?  And will the Patriots be able to hold onto the top spot of the AFC East this year? 

With all that excitement, there’s no better way to kickoff the season than with an epic tailgate party! We can’t think of a better way to cap off this huge weekend than getting your friends together and watching the most anticipated event of the fall! And while everyone will undoubtedly be itching to catch the game that has their favorite teams facing off, what about the other games running? There’s no doubt that you don’t want to miss any of the games that are playing (and probably streaming) concurrently. 

Luckily, we’re here to help you get ready for the season, with a checklist of everything you’ll need to watch the first games of the season with your friends in style.  And those games you want to catch up on this week after the party? Yeah, we’ve got you covered there, too. 

Fire up the grill, tune into ESPN.com,  hit record on the latest version of Replay Media Capture, and get ready to rock and roll this NFL season. 

Have you got everything you need?

A Great Tailgate Party Spread

You know a party really isn’t a party without great food and drinks. Dig through your best recipes and put together a great collection of party food and appetizers for all your tailgate party guests. (Hint: We really love the Argentinian skewers, but there are so many great alternatives for any food preferences…)

Cozy Cover-Ups to Keep Warm

One of the coolest things about tailgating is enjoying the first traces of Fall outside with your friends, often over a cooler of drinks, enjoying the heat from the grill.  Whether you choose to watch in your home or in the stadium or anywhere else… Fall is nearly here, and you don’t want to get stuck when the breeze hits without something to wrap up in. 

Make sure you’re not caught in the cold without:

  • Blankets
  • Sweaters (even better if they are sporting your favorite team!)
  • Cover-ups 

No judgement here… Even if they look a little silly, the warmer the better! 

Party Essentials & Utilities

It’s probably not the most  fun part of the party to think about, but making sure you’ve got your party essentials in place is crucial. What’s most likely the least fun part of party planning may be your biggest lifesaver. Thinking ahead will save you so much time (and cleanup) in the future. What do you need?

  • Food essentials: Utensils, cups, plates and napkins are a great start
  • Bags of all sizes: You’ll need these for easy cleanup… Big ones to collect trash, and small ones to save leftover food. 
  • Ice, ice, baby: It goes without saying: you want to make sure you’ve got what you need to keep food fresh and drinks cold. 

For the environmentally conscious, there are also plenty of sustainable and biodegradable options so you don’t create a huge carbon footprint to have a great tailgate. 

An Incredible Playlist 

While you wait for the game to start, or even if you want to get down during the half, having a killer playlist is half the fun. We especially love these jams to get hyped for the big game, but there are so many more to suit the vibe of any party! 

Games, Games, and More Games

While we are on the subject: some of the best parties are the ones where everyone can indulge their playful sides… That’s right, it’s so key for your party crew  to be able to stretch their legs, stretch their brains and have a bit of fun between halves or while they wait. Or, if you’re feeling creative, you could even build your gameplay into the football game… For every touchdown, guests can do a dance, complete a dare, or anything else you can invent. The important thing here is to keep it fun! 

Some of our favorites? Outscord has a great compilation of DIY games that are great for almost any party!

And finally…

Your Own Playlist of the Best Games Streaming Online

Just because you are having a blast at your tailgate party doesn’t mean you have to miss any of the action from your other favorite teams while you are playing cornhole in the fresh fall air! With Replay Media Capture, you’ve got a great way to capture all streaming games so you are not missing a single event. Don’t miss the chance to recap the plays that happened while you were playing Flipcup or having a cookout while your favorite team did the touchdown dance. You can catch every single game online with Replay Media Capture and make sure that you can keep up with friends from work who didn’t make it to your tailgate shindig! 

So are you game ready? Get Replay Media Capture or get the latest update so you are all set for this weekend’s biggest match-ups, and for the entire season ahead!

And what is the best way to celebrate so many great things in one day? Throwing an epic summer party!

And while the thought of those savory delicacies roasting over a grill might be the highlight to your holiday, no backyard cookout is complete without a kickass playlist to set the ultimate #mood. 

Thankfully, with Replay Music, you can log in to your Spotify account, and create your own playlist, perfect for any occasion.

Download Streaming Media: 4 Best Websites to Stream & Save

Netflix

Rock Hall of Fame 2017: Download Music From the Greats

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the most influential music artists, groups, and singer-songwriters in the industry’s history. With so much excellence in music over the decades, they are pumping out a fresh new round of inductees every single year.

This year was no different — the Hall of Fame honored several incredible musicians and bands that have changed the course of music itself over time. Check out some of the best music from the 2017 Rock Hall of Fame Inductees here — you can use Replay Music to record all of your favorite songs from Spotify!

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)

“Electric Light Orchestra, or more popularly known as ELO, were formed in Birmingham England in 1970 when Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood, members of The Move, had the vision to start a new project that would create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Joan Baez

“If you’ve seen Joan Baez live you’ll know the simmering charismatic presence that draws you into her performance. It’s a powerful force that saw her cross over from her folk roots into the mainstream, achieving gold albums in the 70’s and also provided a platform for her lifetime’s work, championing civil rights and human rights, highlighting the downtrodden, standing up against discrimination and reminding us it’s not always only rock ‘n roll.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Journey

“Call it what you will – Arena Rock, Stadium Rock, Concert Rock – the music of Journey defined the big rock and roll sound of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Formed in San Francisco in 1973, the group was initially a combination of ex-Santana members Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie, and ex- Frumious Bandersnatch members.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Pearl Jam

“When they released their debut album, Ten, in August, 1991, Pearl Jam were a band of young unknowns to anyone not from Seattle, Washington. At home, Pearl Jam were practically a supergroup – founded in 1990 at a crossroads of classic rock, Seventies heavy metal and hardcore punk, just as that city’s underground scene was about to go worldwide.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Tupac Shakur

“Beyond his popularity, Tupac Shakur is one of the most complex figures to emerge from hip-hop – really, to emerge from any art form.His naked emotion and fearless personal revelation were a direct influence on MCs from Eminem to Kendrick Lamar.” – Rock Hall of Fame

YES

“Yes is the most enduring, ambitious and virtuosic progressive band in rock history. By fusing the cinematic soundscapes of King Crimson with the hard rock edge of The Who and the soaring harmonies and melodies of Simon and Garfunkel, they took progressive rock from a small audience of aficionados to radio airwaves and football stadiums all over America.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Nile Rodgers

“Nile Rodgers is one of those rare musical talents that can do almost anything. He began his journey as a session musician in his hometown, New York City – playing with the Sesame Street traveling band, and then as a house band member at the Apollo. In 1977 Rodgers formed the funk/disco/soul band CHIC along with bass player Bernard Edwards.“ – Rock Hall of Fame

Remember — you can use Replay Music for PC to record music from all of these artists directly from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and other amazing online music streaming sources!
