SEC Tailgate


Editorial Review

Don't look now, but college football season is just over a month away. The Southeastern Conference, home to last year's BCS champion, Alabama, and third-ranked Florida, has undergone a number of changes over the offseason but looks as strong as ever on paper. Fans and alumni looking to get in the spirit (or possibly do a little trash-talking) should head for the SEC Tailgate at George, a Georgetown bar that usually requires its preppy crowd to be on a guest list to get in but is opening its doors to football-loving hoi polloi. Expect Southern rock tunes on the sound system, SEC football highlights on the TVs and plenty of drink specials, including $4 beers and $6 Jeremiah Weed sweet tea vodka cocktails. Jerseys and T-shirts are welcome; face paint might be overdoing it.
