Sports and Detroit go hand in hand - and nothing brings the city together like a big game and a reason to eat and drink together. Whether you are throwing a tailgate party or going to one of Detroit’s legendary sports bars to catch the game, supporting the city’s teams is always a great way to enjoy your weekend.
Decor is essential to a memorable tailgate party, so use your favorite team’s colors as inspiration for your party planning. Think colorful drinks, snacks and streamers. Tie the decor together by dressing the part too!
Rep your team by wearing Detroit sports gear- try SMPLFD, Detroit vs Everybody and Detroit Hustles Harder in the Eastern Market for awesome team hoodies and tees!
One of our favorite ways to make a tasty drink is using one of Wolf Moon Mixer's flavors.
For a tasty, tailgate friendly beverage try canned Rose with a splash of Watermelon Mint Wolf Moon Mixer.
For a beer friendly drink, try their Citrus mixed with a light beer to make an easy and fun shandy with a twist.
For a new, spicy, twist on a mimosa, try their Pineapple & Jalapeno mixed with Champagne. We LOVE Gin or Tequila as well with the Pineapple if you want to get crazy!
Detroit’s bar scene comes together to cheer on our teams. Classic Detroit sports bar, Nemo’s, in Corktown is one of our favorite spots to catch a game. It has an original Detroit feel and killer burgers. If craft beer is your 'cup of tea (or beer)' try Hopcat in Midtown, they have 130 rotating beers on tap and more flat screens than Best Buy.
Another option is punchbowl social, who has a brand new menu that we had the pleasure of tasting with the chef and team - and insider scoop is that they have a brand new drink menu coming soon!!
Sports fan or not, tailgating is a blast for the whole crew!
Enjoy connecting with new people around the city and showing your Detroit team spirit!
