    My list needed some updating this year (new gear!), but remains mostly unchanged in the last couple years:

    -food (will be burgers this week, but can be brats, dogs, steaks, bbq beef/pork, etc. and all the fixin's)
    - sodas (bottled, preferably)
    - grill kit (grill, propane, water - new grill this year :biggrin:)
    - chairs and table
    - flags/pennant (new flag pole this year)
    - collapsible garbage can
    - picnic basket (metal plates, cups, silverware, standard seasonings)

    Pretty simple, really - and the whole setup will fit in the back of most cars (my tiny Scion xB used to be the main choice, but the wife's suv is more comfy.) Oh, and new this year: baby accouterments (diaper bag and baby food would be the top of that list, but for the night games it also includes a 2nd car, so he can leave when he gets sleepy - Daddy stays til the clock hits 00:00! :wink:)

    I always like to bring our NES and Tecmo Super Bowl (the girls like to play Super Mario Bros., so it is nice to have that on hand as well).

    Our list looks similar. Sometimes we'll have a TV and dish, but not this week.

    We did get condiments, since we are doing brats and dogs this week we just got ketchup, mustard, and kraut. We can add to it as the season goes on.
