Homegating with Your Frozen Concoction Maker®
Some fans prefer cheering on their team at the stadium, rain or shine, hot or cold, snow or sleet. For others, maybe smarter fans, there's homegating. It's the ultimate way to watch your favorite sports, in the comfort of home while enjoying food, drink and conversation. So when the weekend kicks off, gather your friends and stock up on ice - it's game time.

Completing the Homegating Experience
Homegating means that there'll be lots of tasty frozen concoctions on hand, as well as an enticing spread of game day snacks. Think easy-to-eat finger foods, like buffalo chicken wings, cheeseburger sliders, and teriyaki chicken skewers, as well as spreads and dishes to dig into, like spinach artichoke dip and loaded nachos.
For the décor, go big with streamers in your team's colors and pennants hung from the walls and foul flags to bring the spirit at your homegating party.
Remember to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and follow all drinking laws.
