It’s the most famous game in Detroit. The day most football lovers look forward to. The Michigan State vs. University of Michigan game. But what do you eat to mark the occasion?
This game is highly attended, tickets go for upwards of $300, and it is anxiously awaited for by sports bars from Ann Arbor to Lansing and back to Detroit.
Nonetheless, whether you are an alumni of either school or just a spectator, you are aware of the tailgating that day. It’s so popular in the D that clubs are opening for the game to get in on the buzz – the comrodery of getting together in the empty lots, cheering for your favorite team, and of course, sharing great food!
My suggestion to beat all the crowds and high prices of food is to have your own tailgate party at home. All it takes is a simple menu using a few items, some of your favorite drinks, and a great group to keep up the team spirit.
To get your creativity flowing in the kitchen, why not build a taco bar? All you have to do is brown some meat, warm your tortillas, and set up bowls for guests with your favorite fixings. Swing by Honey Bee for an authentic selection of taco toppings. We suggest queso fresco, radishes, pico de gallo, and limes for squeezing on top.
Next, get your favorite snacks and put them in bowls with coordinating colors of your favorite team. Remember to get special drinks with corresponding colors (like a Blue Lagoon or an Appletini). And for the finishing touch, get sprinkles with your colors to add to ice cream sundaes.
Now, enjoy the game with good company and without the crowd. Go Team!
