Tailgating [fact-free filler]
A Tailgate party is one of the great North American traditions, deeply dependent on our car-happy culture. Tailgate parties are most widely associated with sporting events...
... and are typically thought of as a primarily male event. My suspicion is that this is because it is an event that:
involves a lot of beer
is not near a bathroom
Look for women in a tailgate, and look for the people with the RV. Now, I freely admit that I am pulling this post entirely out of my ass. I haven't ever even been to a tailgate, and I was thinking "Gee, I should do that once." And then the bathroom thing occurred to me. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving and/or Columbus Day. Maybe you can watch a football game -- somewhere near a bathroom.
