A decade ago, there was nothing much to Mizzou Homecoming weekend, for “us”. A game, maybe a few more people in town and that’s about it. It lacked buzz or anticipation. And it needed a kick up a few notches.

Well those days are long gone, and the end of October’s best fresh take on an old tradition has come back around. It’s Mizzou Black Homecoming weekend, and as always, not only is something great in store, but it’s still getting better. There have been a lot of great Black Homecoming events the past few years, but this year stands to be the best yet—somehow, yet again.

Homecoming is about getting back to where the memories happened, but making new ones in the process. The Tailgate is bigger, the parties are sharper, the venues are nicer and the experience keeps getting greater.

So, with no further delay, here is all the info you need to make sure that if you say “maybe next year” this time, you were doing so knowing what is going down without you. So don’t be THAT guy or girl….nobody likes them. So, as always, whether you’re one year removed or 10, it’s time to get back to where you once belonged with the next chapter in the blowout that is Black Alumni Homecoming Weekend.

 

****FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24****

Off The Highway Cool Out Happy Hour—Trops On The Southside (5:00)

3805 South Providence, 65203

It’s one of those fixes you can’t quite get anywhere else than when you touchdown back in CoMO, so why wait to scratch it? Meet up with everybody as they come in at Tropical Liquors off South Providence. Silver Bullet, Rum Runner, Cherry Bomb, all of em? Kick it off with the comeback that keeps kickin.

Night Scene, Part 1—NPHC Stepshow, Missouri Theatre (8:00 pm)

203 South 9th Street, 65201

Think Fall Fest, but all grown up. Go back in time while stepping forward in it at the all-new, updated and renovated Missouri Theatre in downtown Columbia as the NPHC frats and sororities take to the stage to claim top billing on the yard. Coming complete with special seating opportunities and a full-service bar, this Missouri Theatre has grown up along with us.

Night Scene, Part 2—Alumni Afterhours Party, Tonic Nightclub (10:00-1:00)

122 S. 9th Street, 65201

The last few Friday nights have gotten crazy quicker than expected, so we had to grow with the show. Come over to the heart of downtown Columbia to keep the Friday night moving as it should. With two full bars and plenty of seating arrangements, step upstairs and get into the night.

****SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25th****

THE ALUMNI TAILGATE IV—8:00 and rolling, Corner of College & Stadium

Hospital Parking Lot, across from Hampton Inn & Suites

Once again, we called and A LOT of you answered, so we had to step it up again. Come to the parking lot on the corner of College & Stadium on the University side (across the street, up the hill and in the lot from where we were last year) for the staple event of the Black Alumni Homecoming experience, the All-Day, All-Out tailgate.

Starting off with the Coolers & Eggs Breakfast Brunch and rolling straight through game time and beyond. Burgers, brats, hot dogs, anything you bring out, it can all get run through the grill. Show up at the right time and never know what may bless your plate. All offerings are accepted as the more that shows up, the more there is to go around.

Also, if you want to set up your own area to grow out our area as much as possible, land spots are $25 per and if you meet us up there early, we can take over as much space as we need. Plus, there will be surprises in store for the setup as well.

The Game Is The Game: Missouri Tigers vs. Vanderbilt Commodores, Time TBA.

Faurot Field (If you can’t find it, you’re in no shape to be driving)

Your Top 25 Tigers will take to the field to face SEC opponent Vanderbilt at a to be determined time. Tickets are available through the Mizzou box office, Stubhub and other resale sites. The tailgate location is a short walk to the main entrance of Faurot.

The Night Scene Part II: Noir Mizzou, a new Alumni Experience

Location: RSVP to Discover

Done are the days of making something of the last night, and a new Alumni-sponsored experience awaits. Dress the part, take the part and discover the experience of Noir Mizzou. The event is 21+ and is a Black and White style themed event. Meaning: dress to the 9’s to join a room full of 10’s.

A limited number of 300 tickets will be made available for the event, and no walk up entries will be granted. The location of the event will be revealed on the afternoon of the event during the Tailgate. And a certain number of tickets will be made available via raffle at the Tailgate as well.
