Vaught’s note: Louisville’s spring game will be the same day as Kentucky’s but in the afternoon while UK’s game will be at night. However, the Cardinals have one thing to offer that Kentucky will not based on this press release that came this afternoon.

The 2013 University of Louisville Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game, is scheduled for  April 13 at 1 p.m. in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

Pre-game festivities will be in Streetfest where there will be music, entertainment, food and drink specials; including $1 beer.  The $1 beer offer will extend into the stadium, throughout the game.  There will also be inflatables for kids as well as Spring Game posters available to the fans for a $1.00 donation to Wendy’s Wonderful kids.

Admission is free to the public.

12 Responses to Louisville will have dollar beer available before and during spring football game

    Let me get this straight. The 2013 University of Louisville Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game will have $1.00 beer sold throughout the game. That should create a great family atmosphere.

    Classless as always

  • Ira says:

    Booze and kids what a great mix! That sure will teach those young kids how to really enjoy their day. So much for DARE. Teach those kids early on proper fandom.

  • Fake Nate KSR says:

    Are there special prices for Crown Royal shots?

  • Larry Pup says:

    They are ahead of everybody in innovation. Just ask Jurich. legends in their own minds. I sure hope no one gets hurt with the booze flowing. Just amazing.

    line beards and $1 beers, a recipe for disaster

  • RJ says:

    While I have been known to have a cold one or two, on the list of great ideas, this would not appear on mine. While their intent may be in the right place, there are too many unintended consequences to make this a good idea….

  • jcc says:

    People drink before the games anyway. Good way to make money. People smuggle booze into the stadium and there will be drunks no mater what. Maybe by selling beer they make money, and they have folks not drinking the hard stuff. Well they may drink both. Anyway you look at it; there is money to be made. If weed was legal, the concessions would make 3x on the food… LOL just joking yall.

    crazy little brother, bad decision!

  • Katdaddy says:

    Why would a “national power” coming off a a Sugar bowl win need to lure fans with cheap beer?? Methinks some nervous folks in da ville. I’m confident the media here in Louisville will inflate the attendance per Jurich and downplay UK’s.

    Having read this piece earlier, I have decided to come back and share my feelings. Katdaddy, I happen to think that you are right on target. When I had heard about Louisville’s plan to sell beers at $1 each, even continuing throughout the game, I had immediately thought that the idea had been in response to Kentucky fans’ already having ordered 33,000 tickets to their spring game. While I applaud RJ’s giving Louisville the benefit of the doubt in saying that their “intent may be in the right place,” I tend to think that the “intent” is to get more fannies in the seat with the appeal of cheap beer. Having been at Papa John’s and witnessing the atmosphere there with only expensive beer available by purchase, like others here I can only imagine the wonderful “family environment” for the kids.

    Folks, I daresay that Mitch Barnhart would never in his wildest dreams approve an idea like this one. When I see continued praise heaped upon Tom Jurich — and, oh, yes, his athletics programs’ successes cannot be denied — while MItch Barnhart’s integrity, paired with his own successes, are barely mentioned by the press, I think such is a shame. Here, particularly, besides the atmosphere and example to which others have referred, I just pray that no one is seriously injured in an accident after a driver’s attending that game and then driving home drunk after two many of those cheap beers (and I’m sharing because I remember of something much worse back in the county where I had taught — alcohol given freely and the drunken driving accident and subsequent lawsuits). Anyway, I decided to share my thoughts — and, yes, Katdaddy, some Louisville folks surely made this decision thinking of Kentucky and the allure of the Stoops era and spring game later that evening.
