In North America, tailgating or tailgate
partying can refer to the (often celebratory) practice of eating and
socializing while perched on the open tailgate of a vehicle (though many
people participate even if their vehicles do not have tailgates). Tailgating
usually occurs in the parking lots at stadiums and arenas before, and
occasionally after, sporting events.
This may include barbecuing
and is usually related to sports fans preparing for ice hockey, stock car
racing, or both Canadian and American football games.
Fans of NFL Europe have also begun
importing this American tradition.
