Army vs GSU Tailgate Party – 2021 – Save the Date

Army comes back to Atlanta to play Georgia State in 2021.

WPSA Members,

Pre-Game Event – WPSA is holding an indoor tailgate to kick off Army’s 2021 season!

WPSA will be buying out Wood’s Chapel BBQ, which is roughly 5 minutes walking distance to the stadium, to hold a pre-game event on game day. This will be in lieu of a traditional outdoor tailgate. This will be an indoor venue that can accommodate roughly 500 people.

Buy your tickets at this link!

Limited capacity – buy today before prices increase & tickets sell out!

Location
• Wood’s Chapel BBQ (85 Georgia Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312; Phone: 404-522-3000)
• Less than a five minute walk from the stadium! (Directions here – open in browser)
• Indoors & safe from the elements!

Menu:

Wood’s Chapel will offer a breakfast menu consisting of the following:

  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • House-made breakfast sausage
  • Skillet potatoes
  • Cheese Grits
  • Fruit Platter
  • Bagels and Hot smoked salmon
  • Non-Alcoholic Beverages (OJ, Sweet/Unsweet tea, Soft drinks)
  • Cash bar for alcoholic beverages.

Time: 
• Doors open September 4th at 9:30 AM; close at kickoff (12PM)

Indoor tailgate tickets
• Tickets available for purchase from WPSA at this link
• General Admission Price: $45 // Children 6-12: $25 // Children Under 6: Free

For those wondering why we aren’t able to hold an outdoor event like we did in 2019, GSU is not able to provide space for a tailgate due to heavy construction around the stadium, which is severely limiting parking lot availability. WPSA also explored the possibility of holding a tailgate elsewhere in Atlanta, however this was not feasible due to both cost and time prohibitive permitting requirements from the City of Atlanta, which were further exacerbated by COVID-19 limitations.

Note: If you were planning to hold an independent tailgate this year, we strongly recommend that you contact GSU to see if your event is feasible given the space limitations that exist around the stadium.

Parking

GSU is still developing plans for what parking lots will be available on game day. The aforementioned lack of parking lot availability is putting total lot capacity at well under 50%, and GSU has not yet determined which lots and spaces will be available. WPSA is working with GSU to reserve a number of spaces to sell to our membership, and we will share this information as soon as we have it.

Ticket Sales

Visitor tickets for the game have not yet been released for sale by GSU. As soon as we get information from GSU, we will provide instructions on the best way to purchase so that you’re seated in friendly territory.

Thanks for your patience this year. We are looking forward to seeing you at Wood’s Chapel and kicking off the season with an Army win!

Go Army!

Army vs West Virginia Liberty Bowl Southside Watch Party at CROSSTOWN GRILL

 

Long subject for rather simple concept.

We did have 17 people show up to watch Army capture the Commander-in-Chief trophy by trouncing Air Force in a game never in question. (yes the passing of time may have confused me as to how close the game was…but the fact is we won so convincingly, that Army takes the trophy. Case closed)

Army plays the West Virginia Mountaineers for the 2020 rendition of the Independence Bowl. The Southside will gather to watch the game….but it is important that you actually read the subject line…we have a change in venue. Here are the particulars:

WHO: All of you and anyone else you can drag with you

WHAT: Army plays the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Independence Bowl

WHEN: New Years Eve, 31 December 2020, at 1600 hrs

WHERE: BREAK, BREAK, BREAK Crosstown Grill in Peachtree City, GA

WHY: Crosstown Grill Happy Hour is from 1400-1700 every day. Thursday is VIP day where VIP members get half off 20 oz drinks, They have really good food and, for every one who shows up, I will personally tell you why we had a change in venue.

Trust me, I fully expect at least two people will show up at the wrong venue. I would tell you who but most of the regulars already know.

See you Thursday!
