Move Your Super Bowl Tailgate Party... To Your Garage? (VIDEO)

It's actually a great idea.

Oh the tailgate party, that all-American gathering where we round up, kick back, and chow down. Traditionally, these parties are great alongside the field, in the parking lot before the game or even in our backyards, but who said those were the only ways? Rachel Hollis from YumTV gives us five pointers on how to throw an awesome tailgate party -- in the comfort of our garage.

For starters, she explains how crucial it is to set up engaging activities and individual portions of food--both of which are cornerstones of a successful football bash. These get-togethers in our car ports are great for dreary rainy days or even during the middle of the night. Sounds fun, right?

Watch the video to see the full list of ideas to help make your tailgate party a hit.
