Tailgate Time - Southern Style 


Only in the South is game day more celebrated than any other event-evenNCSU tailgate weddings. With these easy recipes, spirited gear-wear and décor we'll make sure your tailgate party measures up to the rest.


Beat the crowd: Every professional tailgater knows that the party starts at least 3 to 4 hours before kickoff. Claim your turf. Get comfortable, because you'll be there for a while.  Location, location, location! Choose a fun, populated lot, preferably at the end of the row so you won't get blocked in and so you'll have enough space for socializing. Look for a shady spot on hot days, or keep cool under your college logo tent.  Tag ECU Corn Hole Gameyour location: Use a tall pole, colorful tent, or anything that stands out so others can spot you and join the party.


Pre-Game Play: If you're past the college days of tailgating (translated: beer-guzzling gatherings), then go to game day like a grown-up. Graduate from those frivolous times to some serious fun.  Ready, aim, play!  Cornhole or Beer Pong shows you've matured. Right? Maybe not... but you still have that competitive edge. Click Here for Triangle stores that carry Cornhole Boards 


Keep track of the pre-game stats and other game scores with the PhilipsPhilips portable TV (PVD700) 7-inch portable TV with built-in digital tuner. It's available at many retailers and is on sale at for $99.28.Igloo Chair


Tent Décor: You don't need an Interior Designer to decorate your tent or Tents for Tailgatinghatchback. (Although, that's not a bad idea as a new business venture.) But you do need to get in the spirit of the day and show your colors. Don't forget your lawn chairs. Check out the Igloo Quarter Ton Back Rest Chair that holds even the biggest of fans at


Nifty Gadgets: This essential is a must if you plan to serve 'em up hot.Coleman Road Trip Grill  The Coleman Fold N Go Grill can cook enough for a gang and runs on a 16.4-ounce propane cylinder. Easy to pack for cooking on the go! 


Make it Tasty: These make-ahead recipes are ready to eat straight out of the cooler. Simply open up mississippi-mud-browniescontainers, and you'll have a crowd-pleasing spread. Click name of dish to download recipes.  Cranberry-Almond Coleslaw, Ham stuffed Biscuits with mustard butter, and Mississippi Mud Brownies.      


True Colors Collegiate Clothing: You are so true to your school. But you're tired of wearing your spirit on your sleeve - literally. Trade the Wolfpack tees and Pirate booty shorts for your true team colors in this season's fall fashions.  Our

A Decent Proposal - Tir Na nOg Matchmaker Event


"Matchmaker, Matchmaker ... Make Me a Match!"  There are all kinds of dating services and meet up groups available, but nothing is quite as successful as the good ole matchmaker.  Ireland had PROFESSIONAL matchmakers before speed dating was ever thought of.  Now, Tir Na nOg Matchmaker Gameis bringing the Irish matchmaker tradition home to North Carolina with its annual Matchmaker Event during the International Festival of Raleigh and the 2 Day Celtic Music Event at Tir Na nOg (Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st).  As an added plus ... If YOU sign up; you will get ONE free pass to the International Festival.


Suit Yourself:  By completing a simple Matchmaker Questionnaire (Click Here for download) singles will be matched based upon their responses with four lucky couples winning dinner and champagne for their first dates!  The Lucky Couples will be announced on Friday September 30th and Saturday October 1st at both Tir Na nOg and at The International festival at 8pm on both nights.


Should I Date A Guy With a Rattail?  The Matchmaker Questionnaire will be available during the event (ask your server for a copy) or you can come prepared to find your match by completing the Tir Na nOg Matchmaker Questionnaire prior to the big weekend! The questions are simple and humorous ... not some "deep psychobabble" test.  It's all in fun and, whether by accident or on purpose, your match may be waiting ... with or without a Rattail.


"Matchmaker, Matchmaker ... I'll Bring the Veil ... You Bring the Groom ... Slender and Pale ... Bring me a Ring for I'm Longing to Be .... The Envy of All I See!"  May the roof over your heads be as well thatched as those inside are well matched.   Slainte!

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
