Tailgate Safe 2020

Uncategorized | October 19, 2020


As a supporter of The Bridge’s mission, you’re familiar with our annual Tailgate Straight – a safe and sober football watch party held annually for the past 10 years. Due to the pandemic, we cannot gather in person, but we are taking the opportunity to encourage the Lincoln community to Tailgate Safe (not just sober, but adhering to other safety precautions.) 

On Saturday, November 21, the Huskers will take on Illinois. We are encouraging fans to “homegate” by keeping gatherings small, outdoors if possible and wearing masks when not eating. As always, we are asking fans to celebrate sober. 

Since 2011, The Bridge’s Tailgate has featured chili made by local teams and judged by local celebrities. This year, we hope you’ll follow The Bridge on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see photos from past events and recipes for winning chili over the years.

Since 1984, The Bridge Behavioral Health has served as an essential part of our community’s safety net, connecting people suffering from addiction and related mental health issues with support and treatment.
