Great gear and grub is the winning combo for the ultimate tailgate party.  Check out these Hot Tailgating Products that I shared with TODAY Show hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda, which are sure to score big at your gridiron get together. And, here’s the video clip of my appearance that brings these products to life on the TODAY Show!

Flings Bins: Pop-Up Recycling and NFL Licensed Trash Bins

This brand new product, Flings Bins, is ideal for responsible and stylish tailgating. These are pop-up trash and recycling bins that come packaged flat, which is a great space saver in the car for any party-on-the-go like a tailgate!  When you get to the party site, you just pop open the bin and it stands on its own. The cool thing about the recycling bin is that is holds up to 60 cans and keeping just 1 can from a landfill will save enough enegry to power a TV for 3 hours!  Flings Bins are strong, leak-proof, and come in a variety of designs including officially licensed NFL and college team bins along with some great party and holiday themes. (I love their Halloween Party design!)

Flings Bins are available for $3-$4 for the regular bins and the logo’d bins are a little more. Find out where to get them at Flings Bins or check them out on Facebook/FlingsBins.

Margaritaville® Explorer™ Cordless Frozen Concoction Maker™

From the brand that has a patent on paradise, the Margaritaville Explorer Cordless Frozen Concoction Maker is perfect for tailgating.  This machine actually shaves the ice during the blending process making restaurant quality frozen drinks. Plus, you can make up to 60 drinks on a single 18-volt Ni-Cd battery charge.  I also like the premium graphite finish with mango-colored accents and oversized controls (read as easy to operate after a few cocktails).  But, you can’t beat the cordless feature for a tailgate – truly brilliant like Jimmy Buffet.

You’ll find this maker of fab frozen deliciousness at Margaritaville Cargo for $299 and check local retailers as well!

Weber® Q® 120 Gas Grill 

From the king of grills, the Weber® Q® 120 Gas Grill is top-notch for tailgating given its excellent portable design. My favorite features on this grill are the push-button ignition, infinite adjustable burner valve, porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate with a nice size surface, and the fold-out side tables along with handles to carry the grill. It uses a little disposable propane gas cylinder and it’s the total way to go for tailgating.

This grill is $189 and you can check Weber’s website to find a grill that fits your budget and style.

New York Giants 3-Way Popcorn Tins 

Another awesome food product that brings in the New York Giants team spirit as well as other NFL teams are these 3 gallon popcorn tins with 3 flavors of fresh-popped corn: all-natural butter, robust cheese, and secret-recipe caramel – plus the tins completely dress up the table. Snack in sporty style!

Tub Cooler
For those who love a cold one at their tailgate and don’t like to bend down to get it, this Tub Cooler holds over 72 cans or beverages along with ice and sets up on a stand and folds down in seconds to fit into a small travel bag.

The Tub Cooler is available for around $40 at Picnic Fun.

This fold-out bench is a great seating option for your party as an extra place to chill for a crowd.

I believe it has a special price of right now (Sept. 2010) of about $25 from Picnic Fun.
