SEC Championship Tailgating Menu

The end of the season means that we now have the SEC championship game to look forward too.   It can be exciting even if your team isn’t in the game and sadly neither of our teams are heading to Atlanta for the weekend.  We wish both Mizzou and Alabama luck in the game and can’t wait to see who leaves the Atlanta Dome crowned the newest SEC Champions.
