After 10 months of planning it seems like the Arkansas tailgate party was a success.
We worked with University of Arkansas for six months to finalize an on-campus location for the tailgate. Things kept falling through, and at the 11th hour they offered us Bud Walton Arena for $50k. We said no thanks and managed to reserve a park a mile from the stadium for $100.
We were expecting around a thousand people and think we had double that. There was a great vibe, and it was awesome to see a ton of old friends.
