We packed up two giant food trucks, wrapped them in amazing Homeland and DEXTER® artwork, outfitted them with a SHO-Cone machine and all kinds of premium giveaways, and made our way across the US to some of the best college towns in the country.
From driving in to College Station following the sounds of the midnight yell to handing out ponchos to rain soaked co-eds at Michigan State; celebrating the news of Homeland’s 6 Emmy wins on the sidewalks of New York to epic corn-hole battles in the shadow of Soldier Field in Chicago – we had an amazing run!
Many thanks to every single one of you for sharing in this incredible event, the first ever SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour, with us! Getting to be a part of your creative photo opportunity poses, your super spirited face painting requests, and the overall enthusiasm for SHOWTIME® and our original series Homeland and DEXTER® was amazing.

Notre Dame – we came to Chicago, ate some deep dish pizza and Chicago style Char-dogs, and then made our way to Soldier Field for your game versus Miami. The frigid temperatures didn’t stop you from coming out in droves and even getting amped over the SHO-Cones. That tough Midwestern constitution is nothing to joke about!
Our face painter was a hit and came up with some really fantastic thematic Notre Dame designs. Thanks for stopping by and telling us about how much you like DEXTER® and Homeland and watching the pre-game fireworks with us! We can’t wait to see your photos from the event, so upload them to Instagram or Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
We loved that Texas football pride so much that The SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour decided to stay for one more weekend of it and head to the University of Texas at Austin!
Maybe we just wanted a chance to say “Hook ‘em Horns”, but mostly we wanted to help you through the last days of Texan summer with some refreshing SHO-Cones and to get you pumped up for the big game with some great DEXTER® and Homeland giveaways, face painting, and tailgating games.
Come find us near the Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium on the corner of San Jacinto Blvd and Trinity Street from 2:00 pm – 6:15 pm. And make sure to upload all of your great photos from our event to Instagram and Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
Fresh off our tour of East Coast colleges The SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour is headed to the Windy City for the Notre Dame versus Miami game at Soldier Field.

And while you’re hanging out rally your friends in a game of DEXTER® and Homeland themed Corn-hole, grab some awesome giveaways, and get your face painted in team pride.

College Station: Your Texas A&M pride is contagious… and deafening! From the moment we drove in the Friday before the game we were fired up by your Midnight Yell! And Aggie’s, you helped us stay that way; through the downpour your spirit never ceased!
