Football is for Wine Lovers

Football is for wine lovers

Beer seems to be the beverage of choice at football tailgates, but not everyone's a fan. If you prefer a glass of vino to a pint of brew, celebrate your love of the grape on gameday, too! (Cool, that rhymed.)

Football and fall weather are one of life's sweetest combinations, and spending time outside in the crisp, autumn air is one of the best ways to enjoy it.

Carry only the essentials (keys, credit card, driver's license, cash, tickets, lip balm, etc.) in a small to medium sized crossbody purse, which leaves your hands free to sip, munch, cheer and high-five.
