NFL: San Diego Chargers, Qualcomm Stadium

Massive crowds congregate around Qualcomm Stadium, including at the team's official Power Party. San Diego boasts spectacular Mexican food, and it turns up at Chargers tailgates. "If you walk around our parking lot, you’ll see a lot of fans grilling up carne asada or pollo asado and making tacos," says team rep Jennifer Rojas.
