MVP + VIP
Score VIP tickets to The Tailgate and meet a Houston Texans legend
It's tailgating time in Houston, so naturally CultureMap and SportsMap are here to celebrate. We're bringing back The Tailgate, our all-out party devoted to your favorite sporty pastime, and it's coming up quick.
It all goes down on Wednesday, October 25, at Silver Street Studios, and tickets are already on sale.
But just like you show up before dawn with all the tailgating essentials on game day, you're going to want to go for the extra point and arrive as a VIP.
The VIP treatment incudes:
- Meet and greet with former Houston Texans player Johnathan Joseph during the VIP hour. Joseph was a first-round draft pick in 2006 and played cornerback for the Texans from 2011-2019.
- Early admission at 6 pm for first-access bites by participating restaurants — snacks from Rockhouse Southern Kitchen, Maple Leaf Pub, Aiko, and more are on the menu.
- A dedicated VIP bar serving cocktails like the QB Crusher and Sideline Rita, along with Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey.
We’re also inviting readers to vote for Houston’s best sports bar in our Ultimate Sports Bar Showdown. The winner will be announced live during the event.
Our panel of editors and local experts have compiled a roster of 16 favorites with an array of different strengths. So don't be shy — vote now and let us know which ones you love.
As an extra bonus, from now until October 13 you can score $10 off your VIP ticket to The Tailgate by ordering at this link. That makes it only $65 for all the perks and a night you won't want to miss. We'll see all you MVPs there.
