To Our Beloved GCBB Members:
How we have missed you so!! It’s been too long since we’ve been able to bark together as the Greater Cincinnati Browns Backers! What an exciting year it’s going to be for us. With the season opener coming up, we have some VERY IMPORTANT details to share with you all before this Sunday’s game. Especially regarding our new, second location. PLEASE read below and feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you might have.
Season Opener: 9/12 @ 4:25pm!!
Join us at Slatt’s Pub in Blue Ash or our NEW location at Copper & Flame on Vine Street in OTR. Week 1 always brings a large crowd so PLEASE plan accordingly. Make sure you arrive early to secure a seat and renew your membership (if you haven’t already). Brian & Amanda will be greeting everyone at Slatt’s sign in table to get you checked in. Tom, Adam, & Tony will be handling sign in at Copper & Flame. You MUST renew your membership or be an already paid member to get the discounts at both locations. Once you’re signed in, you will receive your wristbands which will give you your discounts. Membership dues can be paid using Zelle. The Zelle account is under firstname.lastname@example.org , Brian Clifton. Please leave your name (s) in the message section.
Copper & Flame:
For anyone who has not heard, we’ve opened a second GCBB location at Copper & Flame! Copper & Flame is unique as it is a self-serve bar. Upon arrival, you will provide a credit/debit card (similar to opening a tab) and be given a “pour card” which you will use at the machines to dispense your own beer, wine , or cocktails. Tony & the Twins will go over more of the pour card details when you check in.
Copper & Flame Location/Parking:
Copper & Flame is located at 1115 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202. The best place to park will be the Gateway Garage, located around the corner on East 12th Street. If you turn onto Vine from Central Parkway, Copper & Flame will be on your left. At the next light (12th street), you’ll turn right and Gateway Garage will be on the right. For those using GPS, the address for the Gateway Garage is 1071 Jackson Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202. The fee for parking is an $8 flat rate. There are other parking lots in the area, but this is the most convenient and closest. Street spots are free until 2:00pm and you can use the Cincy EZ Park app to pay.
BIG THINGS are happening with our Brownies AND GCBB this year! Opening a second location means twice the sign in tables, twice the split the pot, and twice the raffles. We could definitely use the help if any of you awesome Cincy Backers would be willing! Stop by and talk to Brian or Amanda- or shoot us an e-mail and/or Facebook message if you are interested.
We have ordered 100 of our 75th anniversary club shirts for this season. They are $20 each and once we are sold out, they are gone. So get them while they last!
PLEASE check your e-mail for an upcoming newsletter with updates regarding future events (Bengals-Browns tailgate, Backer Bash, more updates about our new location at Copper & Flame, etc) and updates from the Prez & VP.
