Essentials You Need for TGIT

If you’re like us (and the rest of America), you’re obsessed with ABC’s TGIT.

If you’re unfamiliar, then this blog isn’t for you! 😉

TGIT is every Thursday night where Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder come on. It’s a huge event where people live tweet and post about what’s going on. It’s even better to watch with friends. So if you’re one of us, we’ve got some tips that’ll help you prepare for the best night in television!

  1. Pull Up a Seat

    If you’re having a lot of friends over make sure there’s plenty of seating to go around. A large sectional can usually solve this, but if you only have a sofa, invest in some ottomans and small accent chairs. Situate all of the seating to face the TV at a perfect angle. stmalo2

  2. Olivia Pope Requires Wine

    If you’re an avid follower of Scandal, you already know that a tall glass of wine is Olivia’s lifeblood. So having a few bottles is a must! Have all of your buddies bring at least one bottle over, each a different flavor, red and white! If you’re feeling adventurous, whip out the vodka in honor of Annalise Keating’s strong…disposition! 😉

  3. Snack Time

    If you’re having more than a couple people over, heat up some popcorn and break out the chips and dip! People like to chew on something while deciphering what wild plan Mellie Grant has come up with or who’s going to die next on Grey’s Anatomy. jasmine

  4. Atmosphere Matters

    Finally, make sure the vibe of the room is optimal for distraction-free TV watching! Dim the lights and shut the doors. Break out the blankets and pillows for added comfort. Bonus if you have a box of tissues out and at the ready because chances are, someone will probably die. Happy watching!
