A successful tailgating party cannot be completed without proper planning. Here are some impressive tips from the All Star Family to elevate your next tailgating party!

Picking the prefect spot to throw your tailgating party is serious business. If you arrive early enough, there will be plenty of options available to you. You will need to have a premeditated game plan upon arrival. Do you think it might rain? If so, choose a near a tree for cover. The location of the Port- a-Potty needs to also be in your thoughts when choosing location. Being next to long lines and smells can quickly make the experience go sour.

Finger foods are key for tailgating. Ideally, you should be able to hold what you are eating in one hand, and the other hand occupied by a drink. The prefect game day food can be made in muffin tins. You can make mini macaroni cheese bites, pizza bites, and mini corn dogs! Obviously the possibilities are limitless when it comes to making mini bites for your tailgating party.

Having an extra cooler on hand that is not being used for storing cold items is always a brilliant idea. That extra cooler can be turned into a warming oven, by using foil and hot bricks. No one likes cold food that is intended to be warm, so this is a neat way to keep the temperatures up on those mini macaroni bites!

Tailgating is a lifestyle that chooses the fans of the game. If you are going to be a part of this American tradition, you might as well be the best at doing it. These neat tricks and tips can definitely elevate the tailgating experience for you and your guests! Who knows, these tips might spark your creativity and help you come up with brilliant ideas for a successful tailgating party!

My Review of All Star Ford Lincoln:

Very pleasant experience. My vehicle was taken in immediately. All of the Staff I came in contact with were courteous and professional. The “lounge” area for customers to wait while their vehicle is being serviced is very nice. The seats are comfortable, fresh coffee and other refreshments available. Also kid friendly with a few toys for young parents waiting. Free WiFi with some chairs and a work counter for the lap top. Nice large screen TV. The service Representative informed me the service would take about an hour. When he left with my vehicle, he returned with the repairs completed and the paper work done in 50 minutes. It was a positive experience!! Well done!!

My Review of All Star Ford Lincoln:

This purchase experience has been the best of any vehicle that I have purchased in the past. Patrick Mckay went above and beyond what I expected to deal with…he was very professional and knowledgeable. In fact the experience was enough for me to refer my dad to All Star at which he too had the same experience and purchased a new 2016 Explorer the same day that he walked in. I hope to have my F150 for many years to come, but if the need arises I will return to All Star Ford for any future vehicle purchases!!!

Back to School for Your Car Too!

Back to School Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Although it may still feel like summer time outside, back-to-school time is right around the corner. August is always a busy month for parents and kids. Parents are trying to squeeze in last minute vacations and the kids are wanting to play with their friends all day! One item that is not usually on the top of the to-do list when heading back to school is your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’re attending high school, heading back to college or you’re the chauffeur for your family, your vehicle is going to need a little TLC before heading back to school and work!

Up-To-Date

Before your college-bound kiddo hits the road, make sure their vehicle has an up-to-date inspection sticker, car registration, driver’s license and an insurance card. At most colleges, these are the things your child will need in order to purchase a parking tag to be able to park on campus. This may be tedious to check and update, but these are vital things in order to send your child on the road to college!

Know Your Car

Pay attention to your car and familiarize your child with the car as well. Make sure they know where they can find the safety equipment, spare tire and owner’s manual. Familiarize yourselves with the particular noises of your car so you are more aware of anything unfamiliar and different.

Stay Organized

The cars of busy college students and parents with children in school often resemble cargo trucks after the start of school. Books, sports equipment, gym shoes, etc. often find a permanent home in vehicles. So stay organized! There are a number of bags and organizers which can help maximize the space in your trunk. Carve out some space just for your safety equipment so you will always be prepared.

Make sure to schedule a service appointment with one of our certified technicians that will be able to service your vehicle and get you back on the road! Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle!

Watch out for Bicycles and Motorcycles

With the warm summer months, more bicycles and motorcycles are on the road and also road workers. Make sure you are keeping an appropriate amount of space between you and a motorcyclist. When going through construction zones, use extreme caution, follow all road signs and look out for pedestrians or workers.

Avoid Overloading your Vehicle

If you’re headed out on a road trip, you may be ready to throw lots of luggage and gear on top and in the back. Be careful not to exceed your vehicle’s acceptable load limit. Check your driver door jamb to find out how much weight your vehicle can hold.

Emergency Kit Prepared

Also remember to pack and emergency roadside kit. Even a well-maintained vehicle can break down or get a flat tire, so it is important to be prepared for any situation thrown your way. Click here to view some awesome emergency roadside kits!

Watch out for Overheating

Overheating can cause serious summer breakdowns. Inspect your coolant system including the radiator and pressure cap to make sure they’re in good shape. You should also check hoses and belts for signs of blisters, cracks, and wear. Keep your vehicle hydrated by checking for proper fuel levels and look for signs of leaks, especially coolant. Consider bringing extra coolant, oil, and fluids along with you, especially if you’re taking a long road trip!

These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!

I have always hated dealing with dealerships in the past but Casey Griffith in the service department did everything possible to change my experience and held her word on everything she told me.

Those two people are quality individuals and do a great job for your company.
