Orlando, Florida Bar Giving Away Free Beer Until UCF Football Wins

Orlando, Florida Bar Giving Away Free Beer Until UCF Football Wins

A local bar in downtown Orlando has been seeing a decline in business on UCF game days since the start of this year’s season and the Knight’s starting off 0-4. The Basement released a promotion on Monday announcing they will be giving out free beer on game days from the time of kick off until the last whistle blows, until the Knights win their first game.

“We have taken great pride in the team and we very much consider ourselves a UCF bar, as we’re operated and staffed by graduates and even some current students,” said Jake Whitacre, the bar’s marketing director

The downtown bar located about 15 miles from campus had about 50 people watching the game last week against South Carolina. The capacity of the bar is near 150.

“We hate to see the place like this,” Whitacre said.

The whole idea and hope for the establishment is that patrons purchase premium liquor and food while cheering on the Knights who play Tulane University this Saturday on the road.

UCF, please win soon.
