Gamewatch #8: Iowa Hawkeyes @ Northwestern Wildcats

Man, we're back to this. The most dreaded game of the season: Northwestern. Who knows why the roar of a wildcat seems to send our Hawkeyes soaring year after year, but this season, we're committed to a win (even if it's like...contrary to how the evolutionary food chain works or something). This has been another tough year for the Wildcats, so let's make sure we show up to support our Hawkeyes this year. Come cheer as loud as you can at our gamewatch bar Redemption (1003 2nd Ave, on the corner of 53rd Street) on Saturday, October 26 at 12:00 PM ET.

No need to grab a bite before you leave; we've got an excellent brunch menu and a Busch Lite waiting for you to start your Saturday off right. Sport your black and gold for a chance to win some awesome swag, or buy a shirt when you arrive. Plus, you can make a difference for a new Hawkeye by participating in our 50/50 raffle, which goes to providing scholarships for Iowa students from the Tri-State area.

Will we see you there? Don't let us down this week - our Hawkeyes need you!

Gamewatch #9: Iowa Hawkeyes @ Wisconsin Badgers

After another long football-less week and an amazing game against Northwestern, we're ready to take on the ultimate challenger in our schedule this year: Wisconsin.

We've had a week of rest and our Hawkeyes are coming back refreshed and ready to take on the world at Camp Randall. We think if you come join us and cheer loud and proud, we might be able to make some movement all the way in Madison. Will you join us at our gamewatch bar Redemption (1003 2nd Ave, on the corner of 53rd Street) on Saturday, November 9th? TIME TBD (will be updated soon).

The drinks will be flowing and the food will blow your mind, so bring your friends, your family, your enemies...even that one friend from work who has been bragging about Wisconsin all season. Everyone's welcome in true Iowa fashion! Grab a shirt while you're here or wear your own black and gold to qualify for some fab prizes. And don't forget to bring some cash to participate in our 50/50 raffle! You'll be providing new Hawkeyes from the Tri-State area with a special scholarship, so it's definitely worth it to stop at the ATM before you come.

Can't wait to see you, Hawkeyes!

Regardless, this is an anticipated matchup that we’re excited for. Will we rise to the top ten this week after defeating the #19 Wolverines?

Meet us at our gamewatch bar Redemption (1003 2nd Ave, on the corner of 53rd Street) on Saturday, October 5 at 12 PM ET noon.
