Music:

Anthony Ojeda reminded KPRC 2: "Don't forget your favorite tailgating band! Houston Texans Deep Steel Thunder!"

When TORO tells you to yell Houston Texans, you do what TORO says. No Bull!! Be on the look out for Deep Steel Thunder...

Shelter:

Whether it's a tent or a full-blown shelter like the Texans Tavern, it's a good idea to have some place to go if the sun or rain gets to be too much. 


First Aid Kit: 

While some folks said Pepto and Imodium were essential, a nurse shared a reminder than an entire first aid kit is a good idea for tailgating. 

Many, many photos of alcohol were submitted to us, as well as one-word responses, such as "beer." Chilling out with friends and a cold one – or two -- is a tailgating tradition. 

And have you seen one of these – a shotski?

Food. Lots of food:

Gyros, fries, potatoes and guacamole were just some foods people mentioned, but we know there are plenty of other foods that make a tailgate complete, from brisket to wings.

What's your favorite tailgating food?

We loved this player pinata idea.
