Backyard Tailgate

'Tis the season to be tailgating! Leaves are changing, temps are dipping, which is not necessarily a bad thing — particularly as it’s coupled with the new johnnie-O fall catalog! Crewnecks, flannels, fleece, and everything in between to keep you and yours cozy in the crisp fall air. In addition to fall gear comes fall football games! And while this year is certainly a far cry from years-past (in terms of, you know, close-quarters stadium seating), the spirit is very much alive, and the tailgating has certainly not lost it’s luster. With that in mind, johnnie-O is proud to present at-home tailgating tips — everything from your beverage, to game sustenance, and of course, fall fresh gear to keep you comfortable while rootin’ on your home team.


You're thirsty, so let’s kick things off with a beverage. There’s enough tension in the air in 2020 with covid, elections etc. — it’s time to take the edge off. Let’s keep it simple with a Spiked Root Beer.

Just 3 ingredients

-12oz. Root Beer

(A&W, while not in a fancy glass bottle is the superior flavor in our humble opinion)

-2 oz. Rum

-Whipped Cream (Optional, but highly recommended)

And while there's no rum for wee ones, what kid doesn't love Root Beer and whipped cream? In lieu of rum, DOUBLE that whipped cream!

Brown Sugar Hawaiian Roll Ham Sliders…yes, you read that correctly. To say these are phenomenally delicious and curiously addicting would, in all honesty, be a gross understatement. The brown sugar sauce, which caramelizes in the oven to give a most intriguing, subtle chew pairs particularly well with the Worcestershire sauce. Equal parts sweet and savory, they’re a cheat meal well-cheated!

Shields Sweatshirt

What can we say...the Shields sweatshirt is the ultimate in grab 'n' go piece. Equal parts comfort and sophistication, this is the one you'll be livin' in this fall. Layer up with a collared shirt, or throw it on over a tee to kick back as if you're wrapped in your favorite blanket. The only regret you'll have with this sweatshirt is that you didn't buy in both colors. 

WARNING: When the sweatshirt is this comfortable, your family WILL be borrowing/stealing from your closet

Fall calls for flannel. The air is getting crisp and it's time to stay cozy.

Flannel is practically synonymous with SoCal, and at johnnie-O, we know that you don't have to be near the beach to take enjoy/wear the beach vibes

Our Sinclair hooded surflannel will be your new favorite for weekends and days when you're taking it easy. Cut from a washed flannel fabric and finished with our special “Ozone Wash" for added softness and that vintage lived-in look.
