“If you’re new to Cleveland Browns fandom, you can read up on the etiquette and customs of the Dawg Pound and beyond; if you’re an old hand, you can relive tales of the best and worst of Browns history.”Northern Ohio Live

Browns fans know: It’s not if you win or lose . . . it’s how you party in the parking lot before the game!

Now it’s easy for any Browns fan to tailgate like a well-seasoned veteran. This book shares tips from Cleveland’s top tailgaters—about where to, when to, and how to do it all, Browns fan style. It also tells inspiring tailgating tales from fellow fans and introduces some of the wild people, crazy vehicles, outlandish foods, and nonstop party activities you’ll find in the lot.

For decades, hardy Cleveland football fans have enjoyed the pregame (and game . . . and postgame) in sun, rain, or sub-zero temperatures, sitting in folding chairs and clutching red plastic cups while watching a rack of ribs smoke on a homemade grill next to a brown-and-orange Winnebago.

This book celebrates the glorious tradition of Cleveland Browns tailgating. It will inspire you to don your dawg mask, grab your favorite beverage, and prepare to join the party!
