What To Wear While Tailgating: The Cook, The Milliner, His Wife & Her Quarterback. Or Something Like That.
Between tonight's Orange Bowl and the crowds slowly gathering in Pasadena for Thursday's BCS championship game (with all the Longhorn banners fluttering along Del Mar, you'd think that half the faculty at Cal Tech was secretly from Texas), we thought it was time for a little food fashion weigh-in.
Because whether you're grilling bratwursts in the Rose Bowl parking lot, or noshing on queso chips in the flashing metropolis of downtown's ESPN Zone, or watching the game at The Oinkster, where the tables line up in plausible formation between two flat screens--last Sunday, Bret Favre and Ben Roethlisberger threw passes simultaneously, while a happy crowd ate ube shakes and pulled pork sandwiches--you still need to wear the right hat. Here are 5 to chose from, depending on your game and team of choice.
