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.
So, whether you’re a Spartan or a Longhorn; a Fighting Irish or a UIC Flame or any other of the amazing students we got to meet and hangout with, keep watching SHOWTIME® and thank you again for this one of a kind experience.

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.
