Tailgating in Clemson is an unforgettable experience that makes it worth the trip every Saturday, no matter how far you have to travel. There are various tailgating spots and with the whole town participating in the festivities, there really isn’t a bad spot to pregame. Kim Gray of Mount Pleasant said of the atmosphere, “We have a lot of pride in our tailgates, we want everyone to be hospitable. Clemson is really pretty and full of life.” Gray is a proud member of the tailgating community known as “All in Avenue.” With over 50 tailgaters joined together, a communal table stretches through the heart of this avenue that’s filled with an array of food provided for everyone, Tigers or not. The menu on the avenue is endless, offering desserts, snacks, fried chicken and even hibachi. Gray’s signature drink takes the spotlight – the “Tigerita.” This orange slushie is tasty and fun. Another beloved addition comes courtesy of Tiffney Cullum. Cullum’s grilled steak wrapped asparagus has become a fan favorite recipe and can be found at the avenue table. food Photo courtesy of Virginia Girardeau Smith.
