After many good years at the Marriott Waterside, our time there has come to an end. Since the Spring Game, we’ve been actively searching for a new place to call home, and many of you responded with suggestions. We gathered zip code data from current members to find a central place that would suit our needs. After a couple months of searching, we found a place that will fill our needs; a spot that was suggested by several of you who responded to my email. Our new home for football gamedays will be the Beef O’ Brady’s restaurant at 4516 South Dale Mabry. The owner, Aaron Carricato, reached out to us during our search, and we discovered that he is a college friend of coach John Papuchis – The Sun Never Sets On The Cornhusker Empire!
The chapter leadership group has met with Aaron several time and he’s assured us we will have a section of the restaurant reserved for our group, with overflow planned as needed. We also negotiated a special deal regarding discounts on food and drink specials (more information coming soon), and a contribution to our scholarship fund. With a central location, affordable prices, ample free parking and a staff that truly wants to help us out, we felt that this was the best option for us.
We’ll be updating the site with more information soon, and are currently planning a pre-season open house for August 17th. Watch for locals ads in the TampaBayTimes!
GO BIG RED!!!
