9 p.m. – close
The Core, Jacksonville Jaguars and Team Teal have joined forces to fire up fans Downtown before the first preseason home game against the Miami Dolphins. The seven participating bars in The Core will go teal as they welcome the Jaguars Road Tour Bus Downtown with special appearances by The Roar, Jaxson de Ville and the D-Line throughout The Core. Patrons wearing Jaguars jerseys or showing their teal colors will get the bonus of free cover for showing their spirit for the hometown team.
Win free tickets to the Jaguars. Each of the participating bars in The Core will have a Jags trivia question. Patrons will collect questions from the bars and then go online to submit their answers. Patrons that answer at least three questions correctly will win a pair of tickets to the Atlanta Falcons preseason game on Sept. 2, 2010. In addition, all patrons that correctly answer three questions will be entered in a raffle to win two club tickets to the Denver Broncos game on September 12, 2010.
