We hosted the second Annual Turkey Bowl this weekend in Central Park;) While it was a fun tradition to lead on the west coast, I've recruited hosts in NYC who have helped make this tailgate and football game even better. How do we coordinate this? Well, I am a spreadsheet nerd with everyone's duties, here's a little checklist and fantastic recipes and rules to touch football in case you want to have a throwdown in your town.
Food: Turkey Chili, Corn Bread, Fried Chicken & Biscuits, Brownies, Rice Krispie Treats, Nuts and Chips. Drinks: Spiced Hot Apple Cider, Spicy Bloody Mary's, Mimosas, Hot Chocolate with Schnapps and marshmellows & Beer.
Checklist of items for the tailgate and field (in no particular order)...3 large thermoses, platters, ladle, cups, bowls, napkins, spoons, plates, table, table cloth, serving bowls, blankets, cooler & ice, water, turkey bowl trophy, football, flags, cones.
Also, here are a few rules for new touch football players.
