Curley’s Q BBQ
Let’s face it, the best part of tailgating is the delicious food. However, if your culinary skills only include adding noodles to a pot of water, then creating fabulous dishes may prove to be a problem. Cue Curley’s Q BBQ, a super popular food truck that provides scrumptious barbecue plus entertainment (karaoke anyone?) to your home, work or other designated party area. Choose from a variety of tasty meals, like pulled pork, St. Louis-style ribs or slow-smoked brisket. Choose a solo meal, which comes with a kaiser roll, slaw and a jalapeno, or a plate, which comes with the previously mentioned items plus the side of the day and a bag of chips. Curley’s Q BBQ also offers food by the pound and, for all you meat lovers, a variety of meat combinations. To make your tailgate party even more fabulous, don’t forget to ask about its karaoke and music/video services.
Redskins AAA Ultimate Fan Zone
If you’re lucky enough to own Redskins season tickets (rumor has it that the waiting list goes on for years) then check out the AAA Ultimate Fan Zone, the best pre-game party at the stadium. Perks of the tailgate party include an all-you-can-eat buffet from Famous Dave’s, drink specials, arcade games, music, contests and raffles, Redskins cheerleader performances and autographs from previous members of the Redskins. The party starts three hours prior to a home game both during the preseason and regular season. Stop by at halftime and enjoy a complimentary drink and snack. Or, avoid the mad rush home and party it up at the exclusive 5th Quarter Party in the club level of the stadium.
