Kroger Field Game Day Guide, presented by Clarkmanship

A message from today’s sponsor:

This custom table will be displayed on the stage at KSBar. It was designed and built by Clarkmanship.

It is made entirely of wood salvaged from an old Jim Beam Rickhouse that was built in the 1930s. It’s comprised of oak, cedar, and beech. Mandatory renovations to the Rickhouse made this old wood available to the public.

Clarkmanship saw an opportunity and acted immediately.  Recognizing that, with the right tools, detailed design, and specific skill, this old wood could have new life. Perhaps you are interested in a NEW piece of furniture with an OLD story. If so, Clarkmanship would like to tell that story by building you something meaningful.

Pick the Pregame Music

For the first time ever, fans will be able to help choose the pregame music. By downloading the RockBot app, fans will be able to pick songs from a pre-selected arrangement, which will then appear on the video board along with a “coming up” section. What that pre-selected arrangement includes, I have no clue. Please no Bro Country.

    The color blue on the “Bar” part of the sign is a little to close to Carolina blue.
