What’s your favorite color? You likely have one or two favorites that show up often in your wardrobe and your home décor. No matter what those colors may be, Monday, January 9, you’ll be bragging that your favorite colors are either purple and gold or crimson and white.
You may typically cheer for another team throughout the season (gasp!), but you’ll be choosing sides for this epic rematch of Alabama and LSU. The next best thing to being at the stadium in New Orleans is enjoying it with lots of food, plenty of TVs and a large group of fans representing both sides. And The Hangout in Gulf Shores is making that happen, with assistance from BP.
The first 400 people who arrive for the 5:00 watch party will receive free tailgating food, and the regular menu will be available to everyone. The 20+ TV screens will all be tuned to the championship game that begins at 7:30, but in-house games begin much earlier. Wear your best “Fantastic Fanatic” attire to win the costume contest. Try your hand at trivia, corn hole and football toss challenges. Compete in the frozen T-shirt, plasma car and square board games. You might even win a pair of 3-day passes to The Hangout Music Festival (May 18-20). And be sure to register to win one of four vacations along the Gulf Coast, from Florida to Louisiana.
The regular-season match-up between LSU and Alabama was decided by an LSU field goal in overtime. And this is the first BCS championship to feature two teams from the same conference. So this is not just any football game, or even any ol’ championship game. It’s THE game of games, so be sure to make it a full-blown event by partying big at The Hangout.
