The Fall football season is just around the corner. If you’re a rabid Ohio State Buckeye fan as we are here at Germain INFINITI of Easton, your preferred Columbus INFINITI dealer, then we’ll bet you’re already making plans to throw the most awesome tailgate parties ever.
But before you clean your BBQ grill, stock up on burgers, hot dogs, frosty beverages, and potato salad, check out our handy “how-to” guide with 10 steps for creating the ultimate tailgate experience.
- Get Organized – Spending a little time organizing your tailgate party will make it a winner. Make a list of everything you’ll need, from napkins and plates to burgers and buns. Then check off the items before packing things up.
- Know The Rules – Whether you’re heading to the Horseshoe or your hometown high school, be sure to find out what is permitted and what isn’t. Know if such things as alcoholic beverages, BBQ grills, and other items are allowed. By checking out the stadium’s regulations beforehand, you’ll save headaches when you arrive. Review the stadium’s parking map to find out where tailgating is permitted.
- Maximize Your Space – Here’s a smart tip: freeze a bunch of water bottles and use them in the cooler instead of ice. You’ll keep everything cold, save space, and won’t have to lug around heavy bags of ice.
- Finger Foods Work Better – Prepare a lot of bite-size finger foods in advance. They are easier to transport and handle. Most supermarkets offer pre-made party trays for just such an occasion.
- Time It Right – We all know that stadiums are going to be jam-packed on game day. So it’s a must to give yourself plenty of time to set up and get ready for fun. Get to the stadium about three to four hours before kickoff. To save you post-game traffic hassles, hang around awhile. Set out chairs, drinks, and leftovers and rehash the game while waiting for the traffic to clear.

Whether you are serious about your game or just a weekend duffer, the allure of playing a round of golf at the many outstanding courses we are blessed to have throughout Columbus and vicinity is certainly compelling this time of year. So it should come as no surprise then that the month of August is National Golf Month.
Why not get a head start on celebrating the game of golf? Here are 18 things you can do from our friends at GolfNow.com.
- Get Out To The Range And Practice – Yes, the old cliché “practice makes perfect” is an axiom that all golfers should take to heart.
- Get A USGA Handicap – Why not up your game? Golf is a competitive sport, so go out there and compete for heaven’s sake! Contact your local Columbus and Ohio golf associations to find out how to get a USGA handicap.
- Up The Stakes – Playing for drinks, dinner, or some other reward will help focus your attention on winning. And we all like to win, right?
- Get Some Professional Lessons – You can watch all the instructional YouTube videos you want, but nothing beats some hands-on instruction from a professional who can help you fine-tune your game.
- Play A Par-3 Course – Keep your driver in your bag and concentrate on working with wedges and mid-irons to improve that aspect of your game.
- Introduce Your Kids To The Game – What a great way to bond with your children than taking them out to play some golf with you.
- Splurge On A Top-Rated Golf Experience – Why not pamper yourself with a round of golf at one of the many outstanding championship courses in our area?
- Keep Detailed Statistics – The more data you have about your game, the better you’ll get at it.
- Play In A Charity Tournament – You’re going to golf anyway, so why not spend your cash helping a worthwhile cause?
- Play 36 Holes In One Day – Yes, that’s a pretty big mountain to climb. But think about how you’ll feel after conquering 36 holes? Tired, yes. Exultant. That too.
- Walk The Course – Think of the health benefits of all that exercise. Try to walk at least 9 holes for starters.
- Put Your Driver To The Test – Go ahead, you know you want to. Pull out that driver and challenge those Par-4 and Par-5 holes.
- Take It Slow – If you tend to be a bit unpredictable off the tee, take a big breath and slow things down. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
- Tech Your Game – There are tons of apps and devices out there that can help you improve your game.
- Make A Bucket List – Life is short. And great courses await. Even if you never get a chance to play St. Andrews, Pinehurst, or Pebble Beach, its okay to dream a little, now isn’t it?
- Clean Your Equipment – We know, cleaning your clubs is somewhat of a chore. But regularly cleaning your clubs will help to keep them in good shape.
- Try To Get First Tee Time – Be an early bird on the course get to enjoy playing when its cooler and you have the course to yourself.
- Plan A Golf Road Trip – What’s more fun than getting a few of your friends together for a golfing road trip? Sounds like a great way to spend summer to us. And what better way to enjoy a summer golf expedition than in a new 2016 INFINITI Q50 or 2017 INFINITI Q60 Coupe from your hometown Columbus INFINITI luxury car dealer?

Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Monet, and Picasso drew inspiration from the world around them to craft timeless masterpieces that still hold the world in breathtaking awe to this very day. Now, from the minds of INFINITI’s master designers comes an inspirational new vision of a luxury 4-door sports sedan that is set to inspire a new generation of automotive enthusiasts.

This revolutionary concept vehicle gives us a glimpse into the future of INFINITI’s always evolving design and engineering philosophy. It leaps from the imagination to create a visceral response of wonder and amazement.
According to INFINITI’s VP of Product Strategy, Francois Bancon, “The Q80 Inspiration was born to disrupt the premium sedan category.”
A Vision Of A New Generation Of INFINITI’s

The 2015 Q50 luxury sports sedan for sale in Columbus at Germain INFINITI of Easton packs a powerful one-two punch of potent performance and cutting-edge technology. Built to challenge the world’s best, including the BMW 3 Series, the Cadillac ATS, the Lexus IS, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the beautiful new Q50 comes out swinging with aggressive new looks, nimble handling, and potent performance. In short, it’s all you could ask for in a top-of-the-line luxury sports sedan.
Striking New Design
One look at the new 2015 Q50’s sexy, yet muscular, sheetmetal tells you that it’s ready to motivate your senses as well as quicken your heart rate. Bengt Halvorson, Editor of TheCarConnection.com, sums up the Q50’s gorgeous exterior by saying “The new sheetmetal is simply striking: the sensuality of the bigger INFINITI Q70 sedan (formerly the M) works in exotic new ways on the Q50, especially at the exaggerated intersection of curves and surfaces behind its rear doors. The boomerang brackets at the grille resemble the ones on the Lexus, but their hourglass shape is more cohesive with the rest of the silhouette.”
Naturally we agree with Mr. Halvorson’s perspective, adding that the Q50’s convention-shattering design looks as good standing still as it does rocketing down the interstate. From the signature grille and twin multi-jeweled headlamps accented with LED daytime running lights with auto-dim high beams, to the expressive C-pillar crescent-shaped window, and sculpted character lines it would be accurate to say that the Q50 is athletic poetry in motion.
