The Colts Influence





Always have a designated driver and be very nice to that person.
Make sure to have a designated driver for each vehicle.
Don't let any of your friends drive away drunk. Having to pay a ticket or ending up in jail is a real party spoiler.
And expensive.

You know your limits. People are going to get drunk and some will make fools of themselves and/or get into altercations.
Don't be that person.

Drink responsibly! 

Have Fun, But Don't Drink Too Much
Throwing back a few beers while tailgating is second nature. Keep in mind that dipping into the cooler too many times or drinking too early is not the best way to tailgate. Yours and everyone else's time will be ruined if you are too drunk!

Have a few beers but don't go crazy.

Your drunken behavior often produces some very memorable moments

 . . . memorable at least to everyone else but you!

Alcohol unfortunately impedes the body's anti-diuretic hormone, which keeps the kidneys from constantly producing urine.
Please have the moral decency not to urinate in public!

When buying beer, try to stick to aluminum can over glass bottles to avoid breakage and injury


Remember, alcohol only provides temporary warmth. Too much will de-sensitize you to the cold, but not protect you from its effects.
Here's how to stay warm when it's cold outside.


Last but not least as the failure of various self-control movements have shown man's yearning for intoxication far out-weighs his aversion to headaches and nausea and to some the infamous spinning room! Because we can't seem to give up drinking, we've accepted hangovers as more or less inevitable.

A hangover can be gotten by consuming 1.75 grams of alcohol per kilogram of body weight.
The average man weighs approximately around 70 to 80kg, and one beer has 10 to 11 grams of alcohol - so a 70kg man could consume around a 12 pack before misery sets in.

Theories abound as to what actually causes hangovers. What really causes a hangover may be the popular belief that it is caused by dehydration and withdrawal, this is partially true. The primary cause is inflammation, brought on when the body starts fighting the impurities in the alcohol.
Oddly enough, the immunological response is largely unnecessary; if the body merely left the impurities alone, they would pass without causing harm.

I don't care what anybody tells you or if you even have your own theory - there is no cure!

Curious as to why so many hangover cures involve raw eggs. It does absolutely NOTHING!
Praying and promising God you'll never drink again doesn't work either.

Trust yourself to moderate your consumption.

Staying up all night actually works against you - your body needs rest in order to fight off the inflammation. The hair of the dog might numb the symptoms, but drinking again is only prolonging the inevitable.

Most store bought cures involve some combination of sugar and caffeine. They basically rev you up for an hour or more, and then eventually wear off and actually leave you feeling worse! Moreover, the caffeine actually dehydrates you, so the net effect is generally a loss.

Tulane University's Dr. Jeffery Wiese, a leading hangover researcher analyzed a product found in nutrition stores. "Party Relief," from Acton Labs where they claim -

Relief from excess consumption:
After a night a partying, revitalize with Party Relief

Note: The preceding grammatical error was taken directly from the bottle.

Here are "Party Relief's" active ingredients: vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin (B-2), niacin, vitamin B-6, folic acid, vitamin B-12, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, N-acetyl cysteine (amino acid), glutamic acid HCL, L-taurine, boswellia, L-glutamine, velvet bean, real salt, milk thistle, Chinese ginseng, ginger, turmeric, cardamom.

There are 3 components to this product, here is the breakdown:

1. A multivitamin that is basically the same as Centrum or any other Walgreen's multi-vitamin.

Read the label the next time you're at the store and I think you will agree: Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin (B-2), Niacin, Vitamin B-6, Folic acid, Vitamin B-12, Pantothenic acid, Magnesium, Potassium.

2. A concoction of alternative medicines: Milk Thistle; Chinese Ginseng; Ginger; Turmeric; Cardmom.

None of these have shown to work for a hangover except for perhaps the Chinese Ginseng, which falls under the caffeine effect.

3. Some random filler components: N-Acetyl Cysteine (amino acid),; Glutamic Acid HCL; L-Taurine, Boswellia; L-Glutamine

The most active component is probably the salt.

While hangovers lower your concentration level, the dangers of these ineffective cures actually makes you more prone to accident, even if you don't feel particularly bad. Basically, you could be operating at half-mast and not even realize it (Yet, NOBODY ever thinks they are too drunk).

Worse, people with hangovers are at an increased risk of heart attack. The odds are roughly twofold in those who have frequent hangovers. The risk is even higher in people with a history of coronary disease.


AS there is no "Real Cure," you can take preventive measures and find a way to hold onto water and salt, and have an anti-inflammatory that would be quickly absorbed into the body.

Remedies with an aspirin-based ingredient are thought to work best over those based on acetaminophen. Hence, Bayer would work better than Tylenol.

Last but not least, in general, the lighter the liquor, the fewer the impurities, and the less chance of a mind-numbing hangover. Also, your more expensive brands are filtered to a greater degree, and thus more morning-friendly. This goes for both light and dark liquors - expensive whiskey might make you more hung over than expensive Vodka. Tequila is an exception among light liquors as it contains more impurities than other light liquors.

Mobile Tiki Bar  

Nothing screams tailgate party than to have your own personal bar set up next to your parking stall. And nothing attracts the tailgating girls more than gooey rum blender drinks served from behind a tiki bar. Now you can have your own Mobile Tiki Bar that folds up and fits into the trunk of a Hyundai

The concept is to have a Mobile Tiki Bar that is portable enough to fit in the smallest of passenger cars, yet when set up, it is so sturdy, you would never know it was portable. When fully assembled the bar top is 59 1/2? long and 22 1/2? deep and the counter height is 39? tall. The total height from the ground to the top of the roof is 86?.

When packed away, this Mobile Tiki Bar fits into a large duffel bag (included with purchase) that measures 40? long by 25? high and 25? wide. The total unit weighs about 60 pounds and one person can set up the entire Mobile Tiki Bar in about 10 minutes. Of course, the process will be faster if you have another set of hands to help but is not necessary.

 The photo below shows the Mobile Tiki Bar packed in the trunk of a Hyundai Elantra. Even when packed into a compact passenger car there is still room for three adults, coolers, chairs and a grill. If it can fit into a Hyundai it will definitely fit into your SUV or the back of your pick up truck

Just one Mobile Tiki Bar might not be sufficient? You can purchase two Mobile Tiki Bars and create an L shape or buy three and create a horseshoe shaped tiki bar.

You would have to be kidding yourself to think that if you had this set up in the parking lot you would not be the talk of the tailgating world. The only downside to getting one of these is you would have to bring extra rum and mixers because you are sure to get a few young ladies stopping by to check out your tailgate party.

If you are considering adding the Mobile Tiki Bar to your tailgating supply, you definitely need to invest in a portable blender for all those drinks you will making. You can't have a tiki bar set up while tailgating and just serve beer in a can. Picking up a Boat Blender will definitely complete your tailgate party set up.

NOTE:  The boatblender has gone a little mainstream and is now called the Drillblender!  Updated information  on the portable blender that is the most fun is now available at

Turn your cordless drill into a portable blender - anywhere! 

If you have made it this far you probably don't need any more convincing that this is one tailgating item that will definitely turn heads. The Mobile Tiki Bar costs $650.00 plus actual shipping costs (Usually about $150) and ships from the Orlando, Florida area. You may waive the shipping costs by choosing to pick up your new Mobile Tiki Bar personally if you will be in the Orlando area.

Since the inception of tailgating, beer seems to be the adult beverage of choice in the parking lots around the nation. Why wouldn't it be? It's convenient and easy to transport and comes in it's own container.
What about the non-beer drinking tailgaters?
 A lot of people, or, dare we say, women, don't like beer. Many women (and a few guys here and there) would rather have a blender drink while tailgating. Finding a power converter that is strong enough to mix a batch of margaritas using your home blender is next to impossible. A 12-volt blender can be expensive and buying one is not very practical if you are a casual tailgater and will not use it on a weekly basis.
What if there was a way of making frozen Margaritas, Piña Coladas or Daiquiris using your cordless power drill?

It's possible!

First things first; most of you reading this probably already have a cordless power drill at home for odd jobs and home improvements. You will need a cordless drill first and if you don't have one, picking one up is probably not a bad idea just to have for home repairs that always seem to come up. Now that you have your drill, the drillblender is a completely portable blender system that can whip up a batch of margaritas in about 60 to 90 seconds. A standard drillblender kit comes with two (2) 32 oz. mugs with caps and straws, one (1) drill bit and one (1) blending attachment set for one mug. The attachment set includes the hard plastic base, blender blades and gasket. All you do is place the custom drill bit made especially for the drillblender into your drill chuck just like you would a regular drill bit. Then place the drill bit into the plastic base, pull the trigger and you are whipping up some frozen drinks while tailgating. Once your drink is blended, take off the blending attachment, replace with your mug cap and straw and start the party.
