2nd September
written by Todd Cheatham

Let me hear a “Roll Tide”!  Football season is finally here my friends.  It started, for me, last weekend with the Annual SEC Flag football event.  We had a great time and we shared 3rd place with Texas A&M (the first time, I might add, we have ever ranked that high).

As you know Alabama begins its football season this Sat. against the Wisconsin badgers.  The game is scheduled to start at 7 PM CST.  If you’re planning on watching the game in the Chicagoland area, please join us at either of our two locations.  The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St.  Our suburban location, Another Round, is located at 5141 Main Street in Downer’s Grove.  The Houndstooth’s web site is for further details is  Another Round’s web site is

There are no reservations at “The Tooth” and it is based on a “first come, first serve”, so arrive 2 hours (or more) prior to kick off to grab a table or it will be standing room only.  Also, there is a Cubs game at 3 PM CT.  The Tooth will be packed.  The alumni association will be there to greet you.  As soon as you enter, turn to your immediate right and we’ll be there to greet you as you enter.

Another Round will be opened also and ready to great all the wonderful, local AL fans.  We have a private area to the far left as you enter the bar.  Please wear your crimson and white to cheer on the Tide.

We’re still selling our 2015 memberships.  In addition, Roll Tide Chicago is celebrating its 10th anniversary.  Our brand new shirt is designed to commemorate this special occasion.  Stop by the membership desk and purchase yours.   Our memberships are as follows:

White level (single) – $25 and includes one shirt

Crimson level (duel) – $40 and includes two shirts

Houndstooth level (family) – $60 and includes four shirts

Single shirt purchase (non member) – $30 each

Additional shirt purchase (member) – $20

Also, in honor of our 10th anniversary, we are offering a pre-order polo design shirt.  These shirts are of a higher quality and display our 10th anniversary commemorative logo, and they come in a wide variety of colors.  The price for these one of a kind polo shirts is $40.

Lastly, we have a brand new raffle to offer you.  We are selling raffle tickets for four LSU tickets.  These tickets include a parking spot and four other tickets to the President’s Mansion (a dressed event with a free bar and appetizers).   A prize valued at $700.  There is a $100 gift card for second place and a $50 gift card for third place.  We will be selling tickets online and at each view party’s location for $50 per ticket.  Grab yours soon because they will be going quickly.

We accept cash, checks or credit cards.  We have all sizes in men’s and women’s from small, medium, large, X-large and XX-large (the polo’s come in an XXXL size only).  Anyone of our board members can assist you.  Please do not hesitate to ask.
