RISE + Pecan Lodge = Ultimate Tailgate Experience

RISE and Pecan Lodge, DFW’s popular BBQ eateryhave joined forces to create “Game Day Getaway,” the ultimate tailgate experience going into the college football playoff season.

This fall, RISE has been filling and flying planes full of college alums to football games within Texas and beyond via our flight creation and crowdsourcing platform, RISE Anywhere.

“We have the ability to create a unique experience by getting fans to the game before kickoff and back home in time for the game highlights on ESPN but it was missing one important element – the tailgate,” said RISE Founder and CEO Nick Kennedy. “I’m a huge fan of Pecan Lodge and recently struck up a conversation with owners Justin and Diane Fourton while eating lunch there. It didn’t take long for the three of us to connect the dots…private flights, football and barbeque…what could possibly be better?”

No lines at the airport, no lines to get the best BBQ in Dallas and no hassles with getting to the game means RISE and Pecan Lodge are offering a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

To celebrate the launch of the partnership, we are launching a “Game Day Getaway” sweepstakes. The winner will be given the option of selecting two tickets on an existing RISE Anywhere Football Flight with a catered Pecan Lodge meal or two roundtrip tickets on any scheduled RISE flight to Austin, Houston or San Antonio and a $50 Pecan Lodge gift certificate (certain rules and restrictions apply). To enter, go to www.iflyrise.com/game-day-getaway to fill out and submit an entry form.
