Take the party outside with these easy menu ideas and portable wines. We'll tell you what to get to make it all happen.

  1. Easy Tailgate

    Why do we love boxed wine? Because ... it's four bottles in one; it's sturdy and portable; it stays fresh for weeks; and it's perfect for tailgating. Plus, if you have any leftover after the party, it's great for cooking.

    Easy Tailgate Menu:
    Hy-Vee Gourmet Sliders & Buns
    Hy-Vee wing trays
    Hy-Vee Short Cuts carrots & celery
    Hy-Vee kettle chips
    Boxed wine of your choice
