Whether you’re a Carolina comrade or a Duke devotee… you’ll agree that the one thing ALL FANS can
agree on is eating great food on game day.
Long gone are the days where tailgating simply meant BBQ and Hot Dogs. Football fare is more sophisticated these days. Think crostinis with savory toppings and a new twist on a classic winter and fall favorite… chili.
With bowl game season just around the corner, you may be looking to turn up your tablescape as well. Local retailers like So Chic Bebe, Holmes Fine Gifts, Just a Little Panache and The Boutique at Ethos Creative Group all offer festive wares in school colors!
Pumpkin Chicken Chili
TIP: Hollow out dinner rolls and scoop the chili in to make cute, appetizer style bread bowls.
Crostinis with Yummy Toppings
TIP: For a carb-filled Caprese style tapa, layer mozzarella, basil and tomato on a crostini and douse in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Yes… there is such a thing.
