Mile High Tailgate
2009-09-13 ... Bengals vs. Broncos (Season/Home Opener!)

A Who Dey Party to remember! The first tailgate of the official NFL season was legendary to say the least! In a week where the tailgate made the latest issue of MetroMix ("Tailgaters Always Winners"), an invitation to Lance Mcalister as well as an on-air interview with him on Sports Talk, and an announced theme of "Mile High Party!" ... the Bengal Bomb Squad was in full swing on Sunday!

A small sampling of the Sunday spread.

The set-up was our smoothest & quickest yet (and tear down was also vastly improved)! The Tequila Bars were a hit and the Watermelon of Death gave some of us that extra "kick" before the game! Plus, thanks to the generous preseason donation, Bengals Beer Pong made its debut!

We had guests visit us from Buffalo, New York and Chicago, Illinois! In addition, it was one little girl's and one young boy's first-ever NFL experience!

As a sign of improvement, our dessert cake did NOT meet an unfortunate end on the concrete this time! Big thanks to Dan B. for coming up with this last minute creation ...

The Bombs were in full force ... with two rounds of Bengal Bombs to enjoy. We actually succeeded in tapping out two bottles of Jagermeister, and WhoDeyBaby stood proud over the accomplishment!

We had our largest tailgate group ever with over 40 attendees! Group was so large, we couldn't coordinate everyone in to just one group photo, so here's two of them just to make certain everyone's properly represented!

1st group shot! The squad is getting bigger! 2nd group shot! Yep, still bigger!

Great tailgate and great time had by all!! A big thank you to everyone for stopping by and an even bigger one to those who helped with set-up and tear-down! Even though the game ended on a fluke letdown, the tailgate are off to a fantastic start! WHO DEY!
