“We want to help people get pumped for the games, so what better way to get people in the spirit than a cruise to the islands,’ said Brooke Chamberlain, office manager for the Goodtime. “We will have entertainment onboard and will be selling cocktails, so people can have a blast and prepare for the games.”
During the Buckeye Bash Tailgate OSU will take on the Wisconsin Badgers, while during the Ultimate Browns Tailgate the Cleveland Browns will take on the Minnesota Viking and Detroit Lions.
During the Browns cruise free J & J’s pizza will be given away as well.
“We have people that are opposing team fans also, but everyone still has a great time,” Chamberlain said. “Fans really like talking to each other about the game and getting to tailgate in a different setting.”
So, instead of parking your car and tailgating get on a local cruise line and float to Kelleys Island for the day. All the island bars will still be open and will be busy with local sports enthusiasts.
Tickets to the tailgates are $20 and you must be at least 21 years old. Tickets go fast, so to purchase yours today, visit www.goodtimeboat.com.
