College Game Day

The Five Best Places to Be on Saturday (Other Than the Cotton Bowl)

UT got rocked by UCLA on Saturday. OU... almost lost to Cincinnati. But even if this Saturday’s Rivalry isn’t a No. 1 versus No. 2 situation, that doesn’t mean your pursuit of beer specials can’t be nationally ranked. Here’s where you’ll want to be.

Tailgating with Steak and Eggs

Tailgating with Steak and Eggs

ZaZa is tailgating in front of their hotel, where the chef will be cooking up steaks, eggs and pancakes-on-a-stick wrapped in bacon. They’ll also have a Bloody Mary bar and a mimosa bar, because no football rivalry is complete without mango mimosas.
Fan Ratio: 3:1 Sooners

11am-2am, Hotel ZaZa, 2332 Leonard St, 214-468-8399

Watch Party at Victory Plaza

Watch Party at Victory Plaza

Can’t decide between watching the game in HD or with thousands of screaming fans? Here you can do both. There’ll be a thousand-person watch party on two of their 50-foot HD screens, and you’ll also be able to down burgers and draft beers. Tip: if you want to sit, bring a lawn chair.
Fan Ratio: 3:2 Longhorns

Endless Fajitas and Buckets of Beer

Endless Fajitas and Buckets of Beer

Sometimes you just need a watch party with a huge projection screen... and zero sunlight. For $20, you can reserve your own personal section in front of the Granada’s 30-foot projection screen and dominate the all-you-can-eat fajita bar. Wash them down with a bucket of beers.
Fan Ratio: 3:2 Sooners

Noon-6pm, $20, Granada, 3524 Greenville Ave, 214-824-9933

A Massive Patio at Blackfriar

A Massive Patio at Blackfriar

Let’s be real. You’re excited about the game, but you’re more excited about the start of patio season. Blackfriar’s extending their patio into the parking lot with a tent and bringing in three flat-screens. Order another round of beef short ribs every time ABC shows Bevo. 
Fan Ratio: 2:1 Longhorns

A Red River Burlesque Show

A Red River Burlesque Show

Your team may win. Your team may lose. But at Teddy’s, we’re all winners, because they’ll have two burlesque shows and a three-piece band playing “Boomer Sooner” and “Texas Fight.” We hear the long-legged burlesque-ers may even be ripping off mini football uniforms. Those jerseys can be pretty restricting.
Fan Ratio: 2:2

Doors at 9pm (be prompt), Teddy’s Room, 2404 Cedar Springs Rd #400, 214-808-7909
