We are officially just days away from the Wake Forest Demon Deacons being back on the gridiron at BB&T Field. The 2018 Spring Game is this Saturday, April 7, and fans will get a fresh look at stories like Kendall Hinton behind Center, Greg Dortch back in pads, and a defense poised for a year of breakout players. The game itself is free to attend and begins at 3:00 at BB&T Field, with the day’s overall festivities always worth the trip.
For those of you that are looking for additional plans prior to kickoff, here are two great options for you to consider: The BSD Spring Game Tailgate and Young Alumni Fiddlin’ Fish Brewery Meetup.
The Blogger So Dear crew will have its annual Spring Game tailgate open to fans in the Gold Lot on the Bridger Field House side of the stadium. All readers are welcome to stop by and say hey prior to kickoff, with the tailgate likely starting sometime in the late morning. Be sure to follow Jake (@BloggerSoDear), Riley (@BSD_RaJohnston), and Rob (@Robert_Reinhard) on Twitter for details regarding the tailgate setup and how to join in on the best Spring Game Tailgate in the Power 5 (Confirmed).
For young Deacon alumni making the trip, there is also a pre-game tailgate option at Fiddlin’ Fish Brewery in downtown Winston prior to kickoff this year. The Deacon Club and a few young alumni have worked to reserve an area at the brewery opening at 12PM up until gametime, with raffles for free Black and Gold gear as well as premium tickets to a future Wake Forest sporting event. The event is free to attend and you can sign up here on the Facebook event if you’re interested. If you have any questions regarding the meetup, feel free to reach out to me @DeacFan3 on Twitter and I’d be happy to help.

The Wake Forest Football program has a ton of excitement and momentum around it heading into what should be a great Year 5 of the Clawson Era. If you’re in the area, be sure to show your support for the Deacs this Saturday at BB&T Field and check out one of these two pre-game options as well for what should be a phenomenal day. Go Deacs!
