Brooke Wallace

is part of a tailgating group who’s had the same three spots on lock-down at War Memorial for more than 10 years. When she’s not perfecting her family tailgating skills, she’s working as an account executive at the Arkansas Times, scaling the walls at the Little Rock Climbing Center and Horsehoe Canyon Ranch, or performing onstage at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse. She’s wife to Thomas of 16 years and mom to Madeline, 9, and Carter, 12.

 

Tailgate checklist: tents, large TV, AV system with speakers so you can listen to music and set-up the game later on for those without tickets to watch the game.

If you (or a friend) live nearby, a scooter or bike is handy if you need a quick ride to find indoor plumbing!

 When my kids were little, I would lay blankets down in the wagon or on the Astroturf carpet and let them nap all day!

 The kids love stickers for their faces or red hairspray that washes out!

Also, don’t forget to bring extra toilet paper (and hand sanitizer) for the port-a-potties.
