Roll Tide Everyone!
I hope everyone has had a great summer, some vacation, and a little time to relax. I’m always sad to see summer end, but the greatest part of summer ending is it’s time for another season of BAMA football. It was great to enjoy National Championship number 16 last season and hopefully see BAMA in the hunt for number 17 this year.
Due to all of your great support at our watch locations, we awarded another scholarship to a Chicagoland student. I just heard from our scholarship recipient Katie Rohrer. She is highly excited to be at UA and had a great first week of classes and activities. Thanks everyone for their support.
The numbers will not be official until mid September, but Bethany Floyd, UA Chicagoland recruiter, indicates that 429 students from Illinois are attending UA this fall. Of the 429, 324 are from the greater Chicagoland area where Bethany recruits. Total enrollment at UA continues to increase every year also, up to over 37,000 students now.
Bama opens the season in Dallas again against national power Southern California. 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 Downers Grove. The Houndstooth’s web site for further details is www.houndstoothsaloon.com. Another Round’s web site is www.anotherroundbarandgrill.com.
There are no reservations at “The Tooth” and it is based on a “first come, first serve”. Note: There is a Cubs game at home at 1:20 PM CT. There could be some additional “foot traffic”, so arrive 2 hours (if not more) prior to kick off to grab a table or it will be standing room only. The game is scheduled to beginning at 7:00 PM CT. Alumni will be there to greet you as soon as you enter.
