Tailgating Week 3: Homecoming Edition

Albany, N.Y- At the University at Albany,  homecoming tailgating festivities are an experience like none other. For the first and second home games, the MASH team has hosted Stuyvesant Plaza themed tailgates (Chipotle, Cold Stone, Bellini's Counter) for fellow students, but yesterday they upped the ante and provided MASH members with everything they could ask for- and more.

Masses of students came to see what MASH was up to, and the response was excellent. Dozens of students were eager to learn what MASH was about, and what it does for students.

Devoted MASH member Jason Perez, stopped by the MASH tent for some prizes.

"I loved the MASH tailgate, the pizza from DC's was delicious and the Cold Stone Cake was awesome. You're doing it wrong if you're not a member" said Perez.

For the students who weren't MASH members, a simple download of the app ('The Mash Co') and a quick, two-minute registration got them a variety of free prizes from the following partnered vendors...

  • DC Pizza
  • Cold Stone Creamery/RMCF
  • Chipotle
  • Awake Chocolate
  • Red Bull

DC's Pizza donated 120 Slices! (Zach Larche)







The beloved MASH wheel also made an appearance...

It was an exceptionally hot, late October afternoon and that is why MASH was giving out refreshing 'Chocolate Chipper' Ice Cream Cake from Cold Stone/RMCF.

A true tailgate always has a cornhole board, but MASH likes to do Cornhole with a twist. MASH members were given a chance to win a free Chipotle Entree if they were lucky enough to toss the bean bag through the hole. And yes, students won.
