Five Drinks for Your ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tailgate

One of the biggest parts of the Kenny Chesney experience is the tailgate! Cars, buses and limos will fill the Gillette Stadium parking lot and you will see anything and everything when it comes to food and drink. As you begin planning your tailgate, think about what you will drink. Is it beer? Is it liquor? Is it wine? What about a jello shot? You may not be at the ‘Bar At The End of the World,’ but our own Raianne Raymond put together 5 drinks that should be at your No Shoes Nation tailgate this weekend.
