Tailgating with the Tide

I finally remembered to actually take pictures of the tailgate this weekend! We always have such a great time, and this weekend was no disappointment. We got in town ready to go eat at Nicks in the Sticks and it was already an hour and a half wait at 5:45! So, we ended up at the Iguana Grill, which is still good, but it’s not Nicks.
John’s dad made some Bloody Marys at my request and they were just as amazing as I remembered. ( he makes the best bloody mary. ever.)

Each side of the tent says something different.



Jay and Brandon playing “cornhole”- which I totally suck at, but I DID make 3 cornholes so Brandon and I spanked John and Brooke


Lucky dogs- Bryant and Jay get to scoot around on this awesome golf cart.

What happens when the generator runs out of gas? Well, the tent collapses in about 15 seconds and I grab my camera and take pictures.

It was an awesome Homecoming weekend for the Tide. We had a great time and beat South Carolina 20-6. It was super cold, but worth it. :) If anyone is going to be heading to the Alabama vs Tennessee game, we will be setting up across from the Quad next to the President’s Mansion. We would love to see you!
