Monogram Club Tailgates Moving Indoors
August 28, 2003

The Virginia Tech Monogram Club's tailgates on football game days, previously held on the grass between Cassell Coliseum and Spring Rd., will be moving indoors this year. This season the events will be held in the ambulatory of Cassell Coliseum.

The Monogram Club, Tech's organization for former athletes, has held tailgates for each home game over the past two seasons. The functions either start 90 minutes before kickoff or immediately following the conclusion of the game.

Texas Steakhouse will once again be providing the food for this season's tailgates. The menu will vary each week and include all-you-can-eat ribs, hamburgers, barbecue and side dishes. The cost is $9 per person if paying in advance or $10 per person on game day. Spouses, family and friends are welcome to attend. To make reservations, contact Russ Whitenack at (540) 231-9156 or
