Carolina fans are preparing for the first home football game of the season this Labor Day weekend.  Hosting a tailgate party or invited to one?   I’ve found some fabulous game day tailgating accessories for Tar Heel fanatics.  Let the countdown to kickoff begin!
Description: U N C Divided Platter
Show your Carolina pride in artful style with this divided platter.  The blue sky is the limit on what you can display in it.  Think munchies like nuts and cheese straws or veggies with dip or even chips and salsa.  Find it at Southern Season in time for game tailgating or as a great grad gift.  Die-hard Tar Heel fans will love it.

Hallmark at Eastgate Shopping Center has the platter, plates, napkins and cups to start a Tar Heel tailgate party in true color.

A Tar Heel Touchdown Cutting Board shows off your attention to detail.  Bring on the cheese and salami!   Surprise your sweet-tooth loving fans with a chocolate tar heel.  Your savory side will enjoy a  favorite recipe made with the Ultimate Tar Heels Pasta Salad package of Carolina shaped pasta.  All from Southern Season.
Tar Heel Football Kick Off! 
And while we’re plugging a particular gourmet food shop, you can join fans on Saturday as the Tar Heels kick off the season with a live broadcast from WCHL inside of Southern Season.  What a perfect place to stock up for your game day essentials. They suggest ordering juicy, tender ribs and spicy hot wings from their Tailgating Catering Menu.  Perfect if you’re in a pinch and need to outsource the game day spread.
What to wear?  Try one of our many boutiques on Franklin Street like Julian’s or bevello, just to name a few.  Carolina blue rules the day, however you wear it!  I had to include this ad for online shop Swoozie’s who can accessorize you from tumbler to cooler to stylish dress.
Go Heels!
