This Saturday, November 2nd head over to Big Tex Decatur for the third annual “Decatur’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” to cheer on your team during the classic Georgia Bulldogs vs. Florida Gators football matchup. This free all-day and night event is sure to make you feel like you are in Jacksonville (or forget that you are not).
Each year the Georgia Bulldogs meet the Florida Gators on neutral ground, Jacksonville, for a heated rivalry that boasts the World’s Largest Cocktail Party. This year will be the third year that Big Tex Decatur and neighbors Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and Smith’s Old Bar will host Decatur’s very own version of the time honored tradition. Not only is this a free tailgate party, but it is also Halloween, and what would Halloween be without a costume contest and prizes. No corners will be cut as there is going to be a whole hog on the smoker and a wing-eating contest at halftime.
Come early for a full day of festivities. Live music hand-picked by Smiths Old Bar begins at noon, followed by kickoff at 3:30, and followed up with more live music to carry you into the night. This cocktail party is going to be a win regardless of the game’s outcome, so dawn your gameday attire or Halloween costume, preferably both and head out to Decatur’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
