The Nitty-Gritty Details:

Our first Kickoff Party was held in Aug 2009 and it started with 115 people from 8 of 12 schools. In 2010 we grew to 140 people. In 2011 we grew to 270 people. Then last year we had 670+ people with all 14 schools represented. So this year we have set our goal even higher -- we want to have 1,000 people in attendance!

The date for this years Kickoff Party is set for August 22nd, which is the fourth Thursday of the month (similar to our monthly Mixer events) and exactly one week prior to the kickoff of the first college football games (SEC Games are N. Carolina @ S. Carolina and Ole Miss @ Vanderbilt). We'll start at 6:00 pm and go until 2:00 am (or later?).

And this is a FREE event -- it costs absolutely nothing to attend. We will be selling Food & Drink Tickets at the cost of 1 ticket = $1 dollar to eliminate cash and credit card transactions to get people through the lines faster.

The prices may be subject to tweaking based on the vendors, but here are the prices as they stand now:

  • Cheeseburger, Chicken Sandwich, and Hot Dog - $5
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich - $6
  • Chips and bottled water - $1
  • Soda - $2

  • Miller Light and Coors Light 16oz (the big ones) - $5
  • Imports - $5

  • Bacardi Oakheart - $6
  • Bacardi Silver - $6
  • Grey Goose - $6
  • Dewars White Label - $6
  • Crown - $6
  • Bombay - $6
  • Jäger - $6
  • Fireball - $6
  • Patron - $7
  • Donkey Punch - $6
  • Purple Nurple - $6
  • Margarita - $6
  • Mix Shots - $7
  • Red Bull - $3

    The location of this years event will be a (fully air conditioned!) warehouse designed for events in the Dallas Design District, one of the more upscale areas of Dallas. We'll have over 8,000 square feet of space, plus an area outside, for mixing and mingling. There will be different games and activities set up around the area, plus a HUGE bar set up to keep drinks flowing. And we'll also have burgers, dogs, and snacks to help fill ya up.

    There will be FREE Valet parking. ID will be required to enter, and all participants this year must be 21 OR OLDER. We want people to have a good time and stay well into the night, but to also stay safe. So two hotels that are right there are the Sheraton and the Doubletree. You'll get a special rate if you use the codes shown below. We also HIGHLY recommend taking Friday, August 23rd off of work if you can. Trust us, you will be glad you did!

  • Sheraton -- Use code "SEC Football".
  • Doubletree -- Use code "SEC".

    While RSVPing is not required, it certainly helps us get an idea of what kind of crowd we can expect. So you can help us a LOT by inviting any and all of your SEC peeps in the DFW area to the Facebook Event and/or sending them to our website and getting people on our email list. With your help we will reach our goal of 1,000 SEC peeps in attendance, so please help us SPREAD THE WORD!
