It’s officially game week for the Virginia Cavaliers, who take on the Navy Midshipmen on Thursday, December 28, 2017 as part of the Military Bowl. If you’re DC- or Annapolis-bound to watch the game in person, there are a ton of official UVA events all week long that you should be a part of.

Wednesday: Military Bowl Wahoo Welcome

The UVA Clubs of DC and Annapolis are teaming up to put together TWO Wahoo Welcome events this week — one in DC and one in Annapolis. If you’ve never been to one of these welcome events, you’re missing out. Everyone you know will be there, and there’s no shortage of food to be had. Plus, there’s a good chance there will be plenty of blue and orange gear for you to pick up!

If you’re in DC, the DC Wahoo Welcome will be at Franklin Hall, located at 1348 Florida Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20009.

The Annapolis Wahoo Welcome will be at Fado’s Irish Pub, located at One Park Place, Annapolis, MD 21401.

Both of them are just $10 a person and includes appetizers. Kids under 12 are free, and there’s a cash bar available. Register here.

Thursday: Cavalier Countdown Tailgate

On game day, the party will be in the Blue Lot, as the University Advancement’s Office of Engagement and Virginia Athletics Foundation are teaming up to throw THE tailgate of the year! The menu includes BBQ and beverages, and is $30 per adult and $10 for children 12 and under. There’s going to be music, face-painting, a photo booth, and tons more. Rock your orange and show Annapolis HOOS town this really is! A cash bar will also be available

You can register for that here as well.

Nationwide Watch Parties

Can’t make it to Annapolis on Thursday? Have no fear. Many of the local UVA Club around the country are hosting a game watch, so if you can’t be there in person, you can be there in spirit and surrounded by your fellow Hoos.
