ROLL TIDE EVERYONE!
What a great way to open the football season with an impressive win over Louisville last Saturday! I apologize in advance for missing the regular email shoutout to everyone prior to the game, I was overcome with excitement getting our watch locations ready that it completely slipped off my radar. Apologies apologies Crimson Tide family!
It was great to have excellent attendance last Saturday at our three watch locations. Our Board Members enjoyed the chance to meet some new faces and catch up with old friends. The support from our Alumni and Illinois Parents makes it possible to continue providing not one but TWO local scholarships to deserving students from Illinois every year. We couldn’t do it without your support! Be sure to check out our tables for memberships and Bama merchandise! Remember anyone who loves the Tide are welcome members of the Roll Tide Chicago family. All proceeds collected at our watch parties go towards the Chapter’s scholarship fund.
BAMA faces Arkansas State this Saturday, kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CST on ESPN2.
If you’re planning on watching the game, please join us at any of our three locations which are the only locations that support scholarship funds and approved by University of Alabama’s National Alumni Association. Not to be confused with other locations that are just gatherings and do not have the support of UA. 🙂
The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St. The Houndstooth’s web site for further details is www.houndstoothsaloon.com. The Houndstooth is donating $1 for every pitcher of beer sold during the game to our Roll Tide Chicago scholarship fund. So drink up for a good cause Bama fans!
In the suburbs, Another Round is located at 5141 Main Street in Downers Grove, IL. Their website is www.anotherroundbarandgril.com. We have a private area to the far left as you enter the restaurant.. Once area can be reserved in advance with room for 8-10 people. Please contact Linda Fisher in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-242-8673. Another Round sells Yellow Hammers and Alabama Slammers at every game! They have also graciously agreed to donate some of the proceeds to the Roll Tide Scholarship Fund this year.
EXCITING NEW SUBURB ADDITION: Warehouse Eatery located at 833 Deerfield Road, Deerfield, IL. To kickoff this new location, Roll Tide Chicago is raffling off two tickets to the Alabama vs. Louisiana Lafayette game which just so happens to be parents weekend in Tuscaloosa! I must say…they are fantastic seats also! No nose bleed section for whoever the lucky winner is! Our Chapter’s Vice President, Ashley Kalogeras, will be present at the game so be sure to introduce yourself and enter a chance to win.
Both Another Round and Warehouse Eatery are open to guests under 21.
