We’ve created the ideal way to bridge all three together: host a watch party for your friends and family! Check out the tips below to enjoy the next game:

Stock up on snacks. If you want play up the baseball theme, purchase Baby Ruths, Big League Chew bubble gum, sunflower seeds or Cracker Jacks. Other sporting event favorite snacks include chips, hot dogs or popcorn.

Keep it simple. If hosting the watch party is too much effort, you won’t want to do it. Instead, make the process as easy as possible. Use Amazon Prime to order non-perishable snacks, spend a few minutes decluttering your apartment rather than deep clean it and don’t worry about fancy serving dishes. This will also make your guests feel relaxed and ready to watch the game!

Wear your team’s colors. When you ask your friends and family to come over, tell them to wear Longhorn colors. Don’t have anything to wear? The the University Co-op has great options for men and women clothing. 

Check the schedule. The Longhorns still have several games left in their 2017 schedule. Check the complete schedule here, and find time that works for you and your friends. While people are constantly busy, it’s important to make time to do something fun together!
