For some reason, it has taken us years to put a dedicated page up to one of the coolest things in the football season. The WTB?- BucsChat.com Tailgate has grown into something very special. This page will give you all you need to know in order to participate with the crew on Sundays!
What’s the tailgate like?
We like to say the tailgate is like a family reunion. It is a fun, laid back environment that, while drinking goes on, is also family friendly and quite often has plenty of young people playing sports. Brian, the owner of the lot, has a nice set of Mens and Womens restrooms on site for our use as well as an outdoor bar/kitchen with games on if you are interested in other activities.
We are lined up on the fence with the regalia provided by the Krew. You should get to know our Czar of the tailgate, BucaRino as he is the hardest working tailgater you will ever find! Chances are that if it is on disply at the tailgate, BucaRino is responsible (though Captain Bones has been providing some awesome props lately as well). We usually have 3-4 food tents set up with our bar and all of the grub cooked up by our own tailgate chef, Chef Red. You have seen his recipes here on the site as he provides a new spin on the opponent every week.
Besides eating, drinking and being merry (Who is Mary anyway? that joke works better when said as opposed to in writing) we have a pretty serious Cornhole tournament that goes own with our own Cornhole Commish (and a Championship belt!).
Net/net, if you come to our tailgate you will have a great time, get some great food and meet even greater people!
This is a tailgate that is sponsored via donation. We are not a business and we do not run this as such though we have filed for our 501c3 status so that our donations can grow). We tie to local charities and donate the proceeds (and announce that every week.) We make EVERY EFFORT to have plenty of food and drink but your donations are not tickets. We serve until we run out and have, in years, only run out of a few things. So before you guy pissy about coming at 12:15 for a 1:00 kickoff only to ind limited food or beer left, use your head. Luckily this has not been a real problem yet but we don’t want it to start to become one either. If this model is unacceptable, you are welcome not to attend. Most folks get it and have no problem.

OK, sounds…great. How do I contribute and am I invited?
We would be nothing with out the people that make this happen. While listing everyone would be a pain in the ass, you are all amazing! If you are contributing to the tailgate or have questions, these people should be able to help you out.
In the picture on the right you see a couple of our core Krew. BucaRino is the Jack Sparrow-ish pirate who really brought this whole thing together years ago. An expert tailgater and tireless worker, BucaRino always knows what is going on!
You see in the picture Jay the Tailgate Guy who visited our tailgate and will most certainly be back again. he is flanked by superfans Captain Bones and BucNutz.
Did you say you had a “chef”
