Parking lot parties are akin to tailgate parties, but instead of going into a stadium to watch some football, you can run laps in spring corn and return to your vehicle pod squad whenever you have a need to fuel up or relax.
To truly rock the parking lot party and enjoy the day, here’s what you need.
Not all partygoers have vehicles with tailgates and if they do, you want to keep it free of debris and butts to make room for the shotski (see #2). Pack up your favorite camping chair so you can relax and soak in the sun.
This is the perfect chair, by ALPS:
This is not a great chair, OR IS IT?!?
Nothing brings a group together than toasting the season while hoisting a shotski. Utahns are so good at it, we recently broke a world record for longest shotski. If you don’t have one, here’s how to make one.
I recommend Porter’s Fire, a local cinnamon whiskey liqueur by Ogden’s Own Distillery. It’s like sipping on a vanilla cinnamon bun and who doesn’t like that? And of course this goes without saying, but make sure there is a designated driver in the mix.
Keep it simple. We bring a small grill to throw on some brats or marinated chicken thighs…but you’d do just as well to hit a deli and gather some tasty and easy bites. Go for food with some energy AND protein, like turkey sandwiches; charcuterie and cheese plates with a loaf of crusty bread; hummus and pita. Or, call one of these places and pre-order!

Safety first people. Hydrate and lube up. Don't look like this guy:
Because besides Halloween, when else can you dress like a lunatic to everyone’s delight and approval?
This one is easy because our phones are glued to our hands. Take pics of your crew and use this #skiutahlastdays to share the mayhem.
See you next year!
