Football is in the air! Burgers versus brats; team jersey versus body paint; pregame barbeque or post game party — all important game-day decisions for football fans and tailgaters this time of year. To help inform your tailgating decisions, we are teaming with Tailgater Monthly Magazine so they can share their tips with you.
Join us Wednesday, September 28 from 12-1 PM Pacific/3-4 PM Eastern, for a one-hour Twitter event discussing tailgating and football. We’ll have experts on hand to answer your questions and we’ll ask you a few questions ourselves. To participate, all you have to do is follow @Bing and @TailgaterMag (Tailgater Monthly Magazine) and tweet out your questions and commentary with the hashtag #BingIt. Plus, we’ll be giving away two $50 gift cards at random to those who join in to give you a chance to spiff up your tailgate!
To help get you prepped to tackle any food or sports trivia challenge you may come across this season, we’ve pulled together our starting line-up of Bing features to help serious fans prep for their gridiron traditions and simplify their game-day decisions.

With thousands of recipes from some of the world’s most accomplished chefs at your disposal, people will be coming back for seconds when you call upon Bing Recipes in the clutch.
