All right, folks, it's that time of the year again for die-hard college football fans to take over Fair Park with their crimson red or burnt orange-painted bodies. Yes, it's Texas/OU weekend. We're sure there's about gazillion watch parties from which fans can choose to watch the Red River Shootout, but we thought we would mention a few anyway. You know, because we're nice and stuff.
Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill will host a watch party at both of their locations in Uptown and Lewisville. They'll be serving $2 orange and red jello shots, along with other daily specials. You can visit their Facebook page for more details.
The Corner Bar will show the game, and offer drink and food specials, live music, DJ and karaoke. You can check out www.cornerbardallas.com for more information.
Another place you can check out is National Sports Lounge off Greenville Avenue. They have over sixty HD televisions to watch the legendary football game, and of course, alcohol and food.
Duke's Original Roadhouse will have a huge tent party to celebrate the football madness Friday through Sunday, October 1-3, and that includes $14 Dos XX beer towers.
RA Sushi will offer two different cocktails -- Hook'em Horns and Sooner Than Later -- for $5 all this week.
OK, City of Aters, if you know of more watch parties going on, then feel free to leave a comment with all the details. We would appreciate it.
