About the Event
The winner of this game will likely go to the SEC Championship in Atlanta. It's a big SEC West showdown at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Our tailgate will be in full force. We are located in front of Little Hall and Wade Hall along University Blvd. We have seating for over 100. We'll have corn hole setup and our open bar will be operating by noon. Mattie Stevenson is our bartender and she works hard for us. We are limiting our drinks to what is on the bar menu so Mattie can keep the line from getting too long. We will be serving our yellow hammers!
Our tent guys are Michael with Yellow Hammer Tents and Joseph Freeman who does our inflatable tent and TV setup. Both work hard for CrimsonAti. Our tailgate manager is John Saucier who is assisted by Virginia Mapes who works at the small tent for checking in. See VA to get your name tag and if you need to renew your membership, she can take care of that too. You can also join/renew online here: https://joinorrenewnow.eventbrite.com. VA has a supply of CrimsonAti t-shirts available for $10. We encourage our tailgaters to support our scholarships by playing The Big Board. You can see VA at the tent (5 squares for $20) or buy your squares online here: https://beatlswho.eventbrite.com. It's important that each person subscribes to our website (http://crimsonati.org) then RSVP individually for this tailgate. This will help us get a handle on the amount of food/drink we will need.
This is a community tailgate, so we encourage you to bring food/drink to the tent. You can drop off tailgate supplies on Elm Dr. until University Blvd. closes at 2:00 p.m. Joe's Italian will cater our tent around 4:00 p.m. We will have multiple trays of hot Skyline/goetta dip on the hot plate. The Peach Cobbler Factory will cater our desserts. We will have a cooler of Graeter's ice cream. Walt Griess will once again bring is famous Boston butt with his sauce or you can use Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce. We will have boxes of Grippo's BBQ chips, Ale8, drinks from Urban Artifact (west side), beer, bottled water, and soft drinks on ice. We have a special treat for all you gumbo lovers.... Pete Zimmer from Ajian Sushi will be making his famous gumbo for the tailgate. He will also bring a large tray of sushi for our sushi lovers. If we have enough Skyline chili sauce left over we will have Skyline coneys with onions, cheddar cheese and Skyline hot sauce.
For those of you that want to help us with supplies, we always need ICE! We estimate using 500-1,000 pounds of ice for this tailgate.
Let's have a GREAT TAILGATE all day and don't forget to save your voice for the game! You can also watch the game at the tent.
