We are starting to organize a tailgate party to help kick-off Eclipse World. The idea is to have an informal gathering, where people can meet and talk. Wayne did something similar in France at ECOOP, called the Eclipse Bistro. Keeping with the theme of being culturally sensitive, we thought a tailgate party theme might be appropriate.
A challenge I face organizing a tailgate party is that I have never been to one! 🙂 Living in Ottawa, where the consumption of alcohol in public is illegal, tailgate parties really aren’t that popular.
Therefore, I am asking for suggestions. What makes a good tailgate party? Before someone suggests, bring out the BBQ, I am pretty sure the hotel won’t allow live fires inside their ballroom. 🙂 but we might be able to order tailgate party food.
