Southern Send-off: Clemson Tailgating

Happy Friday y'all!

Did you know it is only 8 more days till the first offical day of college football? I am thrilled to be heading down to South Carolina next weekend to watch Clemson play/beat the University of Georgia in their season opener. We are so lucky to not only have a night game but ESPN Game Day is going to be on campus for the big event! 

Now I did not go to Clemson, I went to a very small college that did not have a football team so my love for this team comes solely from my husband who lives, eats and sleeps Clemson. What can I say?  I totally drank the orange cool aid and I really love a good southern Clemson gentleman!

AND What kind of southerner would I be if I did not love a good tailgate? I have been planning, along with my good friend Ashley, for the Clemson/UGA game for the entire summer. Next week on Virginia Sweet will be jammed packed with tailgating ideas; including my game day outfit (that I admittedly bought in April for the first game day),  tablescape ideas, tailgating menus, and small details that only a southerner would think of! 

I also wanted to point out that southerners take this tailgating thing very seriously, especially at Clemson. I read here, that Clemson actually won the best tailgating in the South in 2012. That is a pretty big deal, considering all the great southern colleges and universities out there! 


So join me next week as we kick off tailgating season with a tribute to true southern tailgating - Clemson Style! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
