Austin’s Official Army Navy Watch Party
West Point Society of Central Texas is excited to announce that this year’s Army/Navy Watch Party will be at The Blind Pig Pub on Austin’s famous 6th Street (317 East 6th Street). They will occupy the entire second level..
The move to this larger venue comes after last year’s record attendance of 275+ people.
This year, West Point Society of Central Texas is partnering with the USNA Alumni Association (Austin Chapter), the Texas Military Officers Association, Capital Factory, and the non-profit Combined Arms. They are also extending a special invitation to the U.S. Army Futures Command which is now headquartered in Austin, as well as The Travis Manion Foundation and other veteran organizations.
This event is open to the public, and they encourage you to bring your family and friends. Feel free to share this information with others who may be interested in attending.
1:00PM Doors Open (may be updated to an earlier time later)
2:00PM Kick Off
The second level of The Blind Pig Pub is a covered, semi-outdoor area. It has plastic walls that they put up during the winter to retain heat–and they have a LOT of heaters overhead. However, please be mindful of the weather. If the temperature dips into the low 40s or 30s, you will want to have a jacket with you. At those temperatures, the “inside” temperature will be about 65 degrees. If the outside temp is a bit more normal, then their heaters will keep us at a comfortable 72 degrees inside.
Kids are allowed! Typically, The Blind Pig Pub is a 21+ establishment. However, kids who are accompanied by their parents are allowed in the venue between 1PM and 6:30PM. No unaccompanied kids (under 21) are allowed. Parents, please directly supervise your kids at all times. They are welcome to play games (Connect 4, Jenga, Cornhole, etc.) but they must be supervised. For those concerned about hosting the watch party on 6th Street, please know that 6th Street, and the Blind Pig Pub specifically, are pretty tame during the daytime hours, so they do not anticipate any issues there. Please reach out to the West Point Society of Central Texas if you have any specific questions or concerns.
Food & Drink
Food & drinks will be available for purchase. You are also welcome to bring any outside food with you to the watch party (Roppolo’s Pizza is right across the street).
There are several public (pay) lots and garages in the vicinity of 6th Street. Certain veteran license plates are eligible for free parking on Austin streets. If you plan on drinking, your best option is to use a ride share.
