The season's now fall which means a few things; cooler weather, football season, PSLs, and tailgates. To piggyback off of the whole tailgate thing; not all tailgates are the same, and shouldn't be treated as such -- especially when Mrs. T's Pierogies hosts a tailgate where they teamed up with former NFL players Charlie Batch and Tra Thomas to show fans how easy it is to score a tailgate touchdown when pierogies are on the menu. Besides, who wouldn't want warm pierogies during the cold weather?

What are the details?

In late September of this year, the brand kicked off its campaign with former Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch. Together, Mrs. T’s and Charlie hosted hundreds of fans at Heinz Field for a tailgate takeover that included all the necessities – the game on big screen TVs, tailgate games and, of course, plenty of pierogies served up in game day fashion, highlights included Pierogy Pizza and Pulled Pork BBQ Pierogies – some of Charlie’s favorites; and in all honesty, I too would want to consistently be surrounded by pierogies and people having a good time outdoors.

The fun continued as the brand made its way to another pierogy loving town – Philadelphia. Joined by Tra Thomas, former offensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Mrs. T’s Tailgate Showdown took place right outside of the stadium. For this event, the brand also partnered with local Philly sports radio station 97.5 The Fanatic and added a competitive twist - a tailgating recipe cookoff! Fans snacked on classics like Crabby Pierogies and Bacon-Wrapped Mini Pierogies and sampled recipes from the competition. Joseph Savitski, who created a delicious Mrs. T’s Pierogies Philly Cheesesteak Special recipe was crowned the winner at the event, receiving a $500 Visa gift card and a one-year supply of Mrs. T’s Pierogies. One. Year. Supply... where was I for this, and why didn't I know about this until now?

While tailgates are fun in all, not all of them are hosted by a major company such as Mrs. T's Pierogies, and not all of them look as fun as Mrs. T's Pierogies' tailgate. When drinking though, it's always important to stay safe and not to drink if you're underage aka under 21... sorry, folks.
