1. Who are you pulling for come football season…

We are huge Auburn fans.  We never miss a home game.

2. What is the most memorable game day you’ve been a part of?

I would have to say the entire 2010 season.  As we continued to win, each game day got more and more exciting at our tailgate spot and in our section in the stadium.  We have had the same seats for the last 15 years.  So we were among family and friends while watching the national championship season unfold.  We were able to attend both the SEC and National Championship making this the most memorable season ever.

3. Given your background, if you were asked to deck out a tailgate tent for a game day Saturday, what would you do to give it the style it deserves?

I would transform the tent into a modern bourbon bar.  Full length bar stocked, tons of wood, and great vintage lighting mixed in with classic furnishings.  It would look carefully curated with Auburn memorabilia both old and new.  And of course there would be live music.

4. What is your signature cocktail on game day Saturdays?

Bourbon with a small splash of coke.  It’s quick and easy.  I’m a firm believer that a cocktail only needs two ingredients.
