Next Up — Episode 31: Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay

Mike and John bolt from the Windy City down to sunny Tampa and find a party culture as lively as any they've seen. They stop in Ybor City first for a lesson in cigar rolling (not to mention mojito drinking). Then it's off to the tailgate where they've teamed up with What The Buc? and the Krewe of Blackbeard's Revenge. From pirate ships and swords to massive smokers to drinking beads, the boys find Tampa boasts one of the more colorful tailgating scenes in the league.

Episode Details

The boys cruise into Chicago for a rematch of the Packers/Bears game they saw back in Week 2 up in Green Bay. Before the game they check in with a father/son duo that has been on a similar football odyssey this season. They hit the lots before the sun rises and find Da Bus, one of the most famous fan vehicles in the league, in need of a jump. They cruise around with Honey Bear, help an ordinary man transform into Bear Man, and hold down the puke when trying the famous "Whatever" shot.

Tailgated on December 16, 2012.
