I love the Internet. My previous post about the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill that I had seen while shopping at one of the local San Diego area Costco Membership Warehouse stores was only supposed to be a one off post. I never in a million years thought I’d be writing a second blog entry about the grill and for that matter so soon. Click here to read that entry. But the nature of the Internet being what it is, my blog post was spotted by local tailgating enthusiast, Dave Lamm, of TailgatingIdeas.com and he decided to leave a comment here on my blog.
Dave wrote to say that not only does he have the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill, but he’s also taken it a step further and completely customized it with the team colors for the San Diego Chargers and of course, decked out the grill with the Charger’s logo as well. Dave has literally taken the grill from a novelty level of coolness to practically must-have level of coolness. Gone are the plain looking grey swing arm and the obnoxious lime green look of the original grill. In their place are the ultra-cool looking Chargers team Golden yellow swing arm, and Blue accent colors for the trim. In fact, I’ll even go so far as to say the finished grill resembles a football helmet now that’s sporting team colors. It looks great. It definitely screams “Sports Fan” where the unaltered grill kind of screams “Yuppie.”
The best part, Dave reports the customization cost approximately $25 consisting of some cans of spray paint, some painter’s masking tape, some adhesive remover, an offset screwdriver, and a Chargers logo auto decal. Dave details the transformation in a YouTube video as seen here:
