Feedback Survey Results & Answers - Watch Parties

Thank you for your Feedback on "Watch Parties"!

Introduction & Overview of Results

Greetings Gators,

Before we know it, we will be gathering for the first of many Gator victories at various DC Gator Game Watch locations. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for another year of Gator football.

While the DC Gators Game Watch locations will never be The Swamp, they are a huge part of what connects our community and the way many of us spend almost every Saturday in the fall.

As such, it is important to evaluate different Game Watch locations and constantly make improvements, making our experience better every year. This year we asked you to share your feedback with us—333 of you did—and we have done our best to take it into consideration, making changes for the better. You can see the survey's results online but here’s what we heard:

  • A welcoming Gator atmosphere is #1
  • You want more space to cheer on the Gators in D.C.—and in your neighborhood if possible!
  • More TVs
  • More food & drink options at better prices
  • Better service

We listened, discussed your feedback together as the D.C. Gator Club Board, met with the managers of each Game Watch location, and are happy to share some exciting changes for the fall:

Acre 121 (Washington, D.C.)

  • New DC Gators Partner Tito’s Vodka will offer Game Day drink specials
  • New menu with more Game Day favorites
  • Additional Game Day seating
  • New overflow seating, next door, at Lou’s City Bar
  • Continued support of the DC Gator Club’s scholarships and programs

Arlington Rooftop (Arlington, VA)

  • New menu with more Game Day favorites
  • Dedicated DC Gators Section where all the TVs will be tuned to the Orange & Blue
  • Under new management—with a renewed commitment to service and the DC Gators’ satisfaction
  • Continued support of the DC Gator Club’s scholarship and programs

Tapp'd (Bethesda, MD)

  • NEW Location added this year

***The Bungalow Lakehouse (Loudoun County, VA)

NEW Satellite Location

  • Join DC Gators in the Loudon County area at The Bungalow Lakehouse!  It's a new satellite watch party location for our members in that area.

We are excited about these changes and we hope you are too. And we will work throughout the season to ensure every DC Gator has a great experience at every Game Watch location.Continuing our partnership with Acre 121 and Arlington Rooftop also means they will continue to support our scholarships and member programs—we are very thankful for this. 

As always, we will reevaluate our Game Watch locations, and potentially consider new ones, in the off-season and rely on you to share you feedback with us then.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to any DC Gator Club Board Member with any questions or concerns.

And lastly—THANK YOU—we appreciate so many DC Gators taking the time to share their thoughts with us and can’t wait to see you cheering on the Gators at 7:30 p.m. on September 3rd, at either Acre 121, Arlington Rooftop, Quincy’s South, or The Bungalow Lakehouse.

But until then—Go Gators!

Matt Montag,

President, DC Gator Club
