Sports fans love going to the stadium and cheering on their favorite team. However, there are time-honored traditions that go on outside the stadium and often for several hours before the game even begins. Tailgating is an ancient tradition where fans get together, tell stories, share food, drink cold ones, and prepare to cheer on their favorite team. Many tailgaters operate out of their trucks and use portable grills. However, you can have the ultimate tailgating experience with a custom shipping container.
Converting shipping containers into small cafes or miniature restaurants is one of the most common trends when refurbishing a container. With the right modifications, you can turn a small 10 or 20-foot container into a pop-up bar with coolers, places to sit, and counters where everybody can place their snacks and dishes of choice.
One of the big things about the ultimate tailgating experience is that sometimes you just need to take a load off. Many people bring their own fold-up chairs or hop back in their car to rest their legs, but you can bring a comfortable seating area to the game. You can convert your shipping container to a seating area with couches and chairs to ensure everyone can get together and enjoy the festivities comfortably. Some people install air conditioners in their containers to provide people with a place to cool down and get out of the sun for a bit.
Watch the Game
Some fans who attend tailgating parties don’t even have tickets to the game. Stadium tickets aren’t always affordable, but partying with fans over burgers and cold ones is something that everyone can enjoy. If you turn your container into a seating area, you can run electricity through it to watch the game in the parking lot. Sometimes watching in the comfort of your own space with friends is a better experience than being in the stadium.
