Horns Up Texas Tailgate

Six years ago, living as college students on Riverside in East Austin, we dreamed of having our very own tailgate in which we can enjoy watching the greatest college football team on the planet and share good times with friends and family. That dream came true in 2015 when our name was called as next on the waiting list (we waited TWO years!!!) and began with one tent, a camper grill, and a small tv. Every tailgate season since then, we have expanded and developed a reputation as a great place to hang out, have fun and throw them Horns Up! We are so blessed and appreciate all your support. On behalf of the Horns Up founders, THANK YOU!


The beer selection, generously provided by Capitol Wright Distributing, consists of Corona Extra, Corona Light, Corona Premier, Pacifico, and Coors Light. Please Like Corona and Coors Light on Facebook.

Note: to support our sponsors, no other beer brands should be visibly seen. If you choose to drink another beverage of your choice, please use a koozie or a cup. We will have executive leadership from all sponsors visiting and want to make sure we show our support.

Note: Please bring cash to tip the bartender.

Other FAQs

I am ready to have fun and support the Horns, what else can I do?

We are currently registering people to set-up and break down (2-3 people per game for set up and break down). Please email Rishi at tailgate@therishipatel.com if you are available and willing to help.

If you are or know of a business interested in sponsoring the tailgate please take a look at our sponsorship packages here.

What Do I Need to Bring?

If you have a folding chair, we'd recommend bringing it. Other than that, we welcome any snacks you may want to bring.

Where do I park?

There is no parking available on our lot. The best thing to do is to Uber or Lyft. If you drive, we recommend that you come early, and seek parking in one of the garages in the 17th/Lavaca area. The Bob Bullock Museum parking garage is open on gamedays for $20,  and takes cash or credit card.

If you have any other questions, please email us at tailgate@therishipatel.com.
