After LA, we headed across the desert and through the Rockies to Denver, Colorado. The van hit snow for the first time and things got a little sketchy, but we made it in one piece. We passed mountains, ski shops and resorts, and marijuana dispensaries before rolling into the College Inn, which is where all…

Our last stop, before starting to head back east, was Los Angeles. Even though traffic is absolutely crazy and it can take hours to get from one side of the city to the other, we had a great time. We had a couple of days in the city, but that still wasn’t enough to get…

We continued our California portion of the trip this past Saturday in San Francisco, where we watched the game against Texas A&M with the local fans. The bar where Kentucky fans congregate to watch games is called the Local Tap. While UK fans have been coming to this location for a long time, it hasn’t…

After another six-hour drive, we have made it out to the west coast. We watched the South Carolina game in San Diego, at a joint called Bayside Landing. It was about eighty degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Bayside Landing is more of a breakfast/brunch spot than a typical restaurant/bar. The club was…

We drove out to the middle of the desert to watch the Georgia game with the Cats fans of Phoenix, Arizona. The drive in was long (Texas is entirely too big) but the scenery was totally different than anything we had seen before and that made the 17-hour drive easier. The desert is cool, guys.…

The outcome wasn’t what we wanted, but that Kansas game was fun. We watched the game with the Sarasota Alumni Club at a place called Evie’s on the Range. Along with being a restaurant/bar there is a (hence the name) driving range out back. Have dinner, watch the game, and then hit a bucket of…

Well, the last two games have been a little more encouraging than the Auburn game. We watched the Arkansas game with the alumni club in Charlotte and the Vanderbilt game in Jacksonville with the club there. The Charlotte club, who usually gets together for every weekend game, has their watch parties at a bar called…

Losing, especially to teams like Auburn, still feels like a foreign country. Not the thrilling part of being in a foreign country, but the “I’ve lost my phone, I can’t understand anyone, it’s getting dark, and I’ve seen the movie ‘Hostel’ one to many times” part of being in a foreign country. Anyway. We watched…

We stopped in Raleigh, North Carolina to hang out with the alumni club in the area. We watched the game at a place called Tobacco Road Sports Café (which isn’t actually on Tobacco Road for those keeping track), where the staff gives UK fans a large room during watch parties. Raleigh is located next to…
