The Red & Black Brigade Tailgate

Founded prior to the 2013 season, The Red and Black Brigade originally tailgated at the Uptown Rentals owned "The Majestic" apartment courtyard. With only a table and Weber grill they prided themselves on providing another option for Cincinnati Bearcats fans to tailgate. Since their humble beginnings, the Brigade has tailgated at Bogart's back lot and Uptown Rentals "Views on the Vine" before finding our current home on campus at The Grid Spot #19. We are organized by students and young alumni alike with a strong passion for all things Bearcats. In 2018 we stated partnering with the UC Marching Alumni Band hosting them for each game.
