Yup, it's seriously time to start planning the tailgates for the 2007 football season - so far, we have a few "themes" locked in and we're developing some ideas for others.
The first game of the season is against florida international - so, the golden panthers of fiu, donning their blue and gold (reoccurring theme this season - the gold bit anyway), cruise into Happy Valley on September 1st (very likely that they'll get there a few days earlier, but you get the idea). Located in sunny Miami, fiu is Florida's largest public university (according to their website).
What to serve??? - well, Mediterranean, of course. We're planning grilled fish, hummus, olive tapenade, gazpacho, grilled vegetables and other yummy fare (such as pita chips marinated cheese and so on).
