Once again this year, we’re dispatching staff members to key cities across the United States to host watch parties for local Jayhawks.
Today, our fearless travelers are stationed in Denver, Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
Each location will have a KU Alumni Association table set up with free giveaways such as stickers and coasters. If you’re a member, though, be sure to show your card to receive a special gift! You can show your actual card, a digital copy of the card (it’s on some of our emails) or even a copy of a recent email that has your membership status at the bottom.
We’re already hearing reports from Teri Harris, director of membership, that Stoney’s Bar & Grill, our official alumni watch site in Denver, is packed with Jayhawk fans. The restaurant even put together a special Jayhawk menu with offerings that include “Naismith Nachos” and “Phog Allen Fries.”
And from Lottie’s Pub in Chicago, Tyler Rockers, coordinator of alumni programs, proclaimed that the sky is appropriately colored KU blue today.
Should KU win today over Eastern Kentucky and advance to Sunday’s game, staff members will host watch parties in Phoenix, Dallas, Minneapolis-St. Paul, San Francisco, Portland and New York City.
You can find a list of official watch parties on our calendar, and a list of official KU Alumni watch sites is available on our website. Be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, post on our Facebook page or tweet at us to let us know where you’re watching the game!
