  2. The Big Football Game Calls for the Ultimate Backyard Homegate Party

    Have a Homegate Party with ShelterLogic

    There’s a big football game being played on Sunday, and there will be a championship feeling in the air. Whether your favorite team is playing, or you have no rooting interest at all, the best way to celebrate the day is with a small backyard homegate party!

    While a tailgate party is an outdoor bash that takes place before a sporting event at the parking lot of a stadium, a homegate party that you hold in your backyard. A tailgate party will include a grill, a tailgate canopy, portable folding chairs, a sturdy but compact camping table, a trusty metal cooler, and plenty of food and drinks.

    A homegate party gives you all the benefits of a tailgate without the added stress of gameday traffic, need to prep food the night before, or the need to pack your car or truck with tailgating gear. Additionally, homegating allows you to keep your party as intimate as you’d like. You can make it a family affair, or just invite the neighbors over for a pre-game meal.

    While the big game atmosphere can make tailgating a unique experience, you can replicate the feel in your own backyard. In fact, when you’re homegating, you aren’t restricted to one or two parking spaces. You’ll have more room to set up tables and chairs, games like cornhole, and to generally just stretch out. Also, you’ll have the convenience of setting up and breaking down your backyard in your own time frame, and not when the stadium parking lot is open.

    It doesn’t matter if you live in the cold Kansas City area, the warmth of the Tampa Bay area, or anywhere else in the United States. Even thought the 54 of the 55 of big championship football games have been played in warmer weather or indoor stadiums, it’s a sport that’s played in just about any weather. Those who tailgate at Kansas City games dress in layers to stay warm. Fans of the team in Tampa know how to stay cool under the blazing sun.

    Plan a Vacation: Even If It's Local or In Your Backyard

    We all need to plan time off from work to spend quality time alone or with family and friends and recharge our minds. However, taking paid vacation time is something not every American worker is doing. According to the U.S. Travel Association, American workers left an average of 33% of their paid time on the table last year.

    National Plan a Vacation Day, which is the last Tuesday in January (this year, it’s January 26), reminds us to plan our vacation at the start of the year for the rest of the year. The earlier you plan a vacation, the more ready and relaxed you’ll be when your vacation time gets here.

  6. Using a Gazebo on a Commercial Property

    Using a Gazebo on a Commercial Property

    Metal gazebos can be a great way to make your commercial property more appealing, enjoyable, and valuable. There are many different ways to utilize a gazebo on commercial real estate in an easy and cost-effective way. The best thing about metal gazebos is that you can tailor them to match your style whether that’s elegant, modern, romantic, or quirky.

    What Is a Gazebo?

    At the base level, a gazebo is a roofed structure with open sides meant to provide shelter from the elements and add a beautiful outdoor decoration. Most gazebos are self-supported, though some can also attach to a garden wall or other structure. Gazebos typically require a solid, level foundation of soil or grass, concrete, or wood. The traditional gazebo shapes are hexagonal, square, or circular with a pointed roof, but you can also get creative with exactly how you want your gazebo to look. For a more enclosed feeling, gazebos can also have railings around the outside or curtains or bug netting that you can draw around the perimeter. Gazebos come in a variety of different materials including wood, metal, vinyl, or a combination. Many also can have cloth roofs.

    Benefits of a Metal Gazebo For a Commercial Property

    Metal gazebos made of aluminum or steel are popular among homeowners and businesses for their durability, modern look, and affordable price point. Standard gazebos tend to have powder-coated aluminum or a combination of aluminum and steel. Superior gazebos use a mix of polycarbonate and steel. Premium gazebos offer the ultimate sophistication and durability with rust-resistant galvanized steel.
