The recently renovated Dave & Buster's at the Tri-County Mall (11775 Commons Drive, Springdale, Ohio, 45246/513-671-5501) has served as the preferred away-game watch party location for each of the past four seasons.
The event is free and open to the public.
Head coach Butch Jones, select football student athletes, and members of the football staff will be on hand to address the crowd and sign autographs. The 2012 commemorative football poster will be available for all fans. The UC spirit squad and Bearcat mascot will be in attendance to greet fans, while the Bearcat Caravan will be on site with great giveaways for UC fans. Fans will also have a chance to get their picture taken with the 2011 BIG EAST Conference Championship trophy.
The Voice of the Bearcats, Dan Hoard will host a Q & A session with Coach Jones along with fans in the audience.
"We are so excited to again partner with IMG College and UC Bearcats football," Tim Ragan, Dave & Buster's general manager said. "We have reinvented our Springdale Dave and Busters location into an upscale sports bar atmosphere that Cincinnati can call its go-to gameday headquarters. Our goal is to provide UC football fans the ultimate destination for fun by pairing a comfortable atmosphere for sports viewing with fantastic new menu items, signature cocktails and 10 new must-play games. Go Bearcats!"
