Bolt Beat Tailgating!

By Peter Thompson

Bolt Beat invites you out to a couple of “Bolt Beat Tailgating” sessions at Qualcomm Stadium this season! This will be a fun get-together where we will ‘grill & chill’, drink a few beers, conduct fan interviews to put up on the site, have some fun stuff to giveaway, and basically get to meet each other. Nothing makes a game more awesome than getting there early, and meeting other Charger Fans. Especially the ones from Bolt Beat! That’s what football is all about.

This will be a light hearted family atmosphere, so feel free to come by with the kids, or bring your friends. Both tailgates will be hosted in the parking lot in section #J1, and we will be displaying a Bolt Beat banner for all to see!

The first game will be on Sunday November 10th @ 1:25pm, as we face The Denver Broncos. It’s the biggest game of the year, not only because the Broncos are one of the favorites to win it all, but because they’re also our hated rivals! The tailgate will be hosted by staff writers ChargerGirl Cindi & David O’Rourke. Come out and have some fun, eat some food, and win some prizes. Then go out and cheer our Chargers to victory in a key divisional matchup!

The second game will be on Sunday December 8th, as Philip Rivers looks to add some W’s to his legendary “December Winning Record”! This time, I will be joining David & Cindi for the festivities. We would love to have you join us before we hand Eli Manning a crushing defeat at the hands of coach Pagano’s defense, and our high flying offense!

If you would like to meet up with us, and join in on the action, please send me your email address to We have created a “Bolt Beat Tailgating” google group, and I will add you to it. We already have open threads set up for each game on there. That way, people can feel free to discuss plans, coordinate meeting each other, share important information, and even submit ideas & suggestions for the event. If you have an idea you would like to contribute, please speak up!

We hope to see you all out there for both of the tailgates! Please feel free to post in the comments section below, should you have any questions, or just to show your support for the events. Let’s get the Bolt-Beat-Tailgating crew rollin’, and show our support for the site… and our favorite team, of course!

Bolt Up!!!!
