Just in time for football season, a tailgate themed rooftop bar will be opening soon in Chicago.

I'm a huge fan of football. Especially, when it comes to the NFL. My family has season tickets for the Chicago Bears. For me, it's not just the game. It's the whole experience. One of my favorite parts is the tailgate party.

When the team is on the road, I don't get to participate in that pre-game tradition. Well, that's going to change soon in Chicago.

According to timeout.com,

"Utopian Tailgate, a new rooftop deck perched atop the Second City in Old Town, will spotlight the many joys of tailgating—complete with tableside keg service, stadium seating, and cornhole."

"It's pegged as an "ode to all the best experiences of tailgating before, during and after football games and concerts." It will be decked out in greenery, bright colors and plenty of flatscreen TVs that will be tuned to NCAA and NFL games. Guests can also expect to pass time between drinks with mini-golf, foosball, bocce and giant board games. Throughout the year, the space will host rotating interactive experiences like giant bouncy houses and mechanical bull rides."

Sounds like my kind of place. I can't wait to check it out this season.
