Tailgating with Hip Pops and the Dawgs

Georgia-Bulldogs-Football-091710LHip Pops Loves the Dawgs!

On Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 11:08 AM we’ll be keeping you cool and refreshed while tailgating again this week. The Dawgs are taking on South Carolina this Saturday. Coming off last week’s loss, they can use all of our support.

Come find the Pop Cart in the parking lot between the Baptist Center and Sigma Chi.
Flava-Flavors cheering on the Dawgs:

  • Eazy-T
  • Nappy Roots Beer
  • Mango Was The Case
  • Green LaTeaFa
  • Ghostface Licka
  • Foxy Brownie
  • Citrus Hill
  • So Fresh & So Cream


The Hip Pops cart is proud to make her tailgating debut at the UGA vs Boise State game September 3 at theGeorgia Dome. It has been hot, hot, hot this summer in the south, and nothing tastes better with a cold Budweiser than an icy pop.
We will be giving away free (yes, free!) pops at the Shepard Center Societytailgate. All proceeds from the tailgate benefit Atlanta’s Shepard Center SHARE Initiative. The Shepard Center is a remarkable hospital that specializes in spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation. The SHARE Initiative helps treat US soldiers wounded at war.

Enjoy the tasty tunes of Ponderosa and the Dean Dollar Band while cooling down with a popsicle.
We hope to see you there in your RED and BLACK!

Party Down with New West Records

museumNew West Records (Corner of Pope & Meigs, near Big City Bread) is throwing a party after the Dawgs demolish Mississippi State. They’ve got free beer and Harry’s Pig Shop for all the party goers. DJ Immukization will be on the turn tables to keep the party going all evening long.

We are thrilled to be a part of the UGA Student Day at Georgia Museum of Art on Thursday, September 15. The museum recently underwent a major renovation, and the facilities are incredible. Pops are FREE to anyone with a student ID card. Pop Peddling begins at 1pm. I’m hoping we have a minute to slip away and check out the Hatch Show Print Exhibit…

Artsy Flavas of the Day:

  • Salt N’ Suga
  • Citrus Hill
  • Ghostface Licka
  • Mos Fresh
  • Mango Was The Case

See you at the Gallery!
