Demon Deacon Baity Street Bash

Oct. 21, 2009

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest fans are invited to attend the Demon Deacon Baity Street Bash on Thursday, Oct. 29, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The Bash provides fans with a chance to attend the weekly Jim Grobe Show Presented by BB&T. Voice of the Deacons Stan Cotten and head coach Jim Grobe will be on the Lowe's Stage on Baity Street broadcasting live. The radio show will begin at 7 p.m.

Wake Forest head men's basketball coach Dino Gaudio and the 2009-10 team will also be in attendance and available for autographs from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Be sure to drop by and meet the Deacs before their exciting season begins.

There will be plenty of other activities for all ages on Thursday, including inflatable rides, live music, information on purchasing basketball season tickets, raffles to win a pair of 2009-10 men's basketball season tickets and a 2009 Wake Forest motorcycle, a special appearance by the Demon Deacon and much more.

Food vendors will be available along the street including the Johnsonville Big Taste Grill which will be serving freshly grilled brats. The Johnsonville Big Taste Grill is no ordinary backyard barbecue. Weighing more than 53,000 pounds and measuring 65-feet long, this giant grill requires it own semi truck to haul it from one location to another. The grill has the capacity to cook more than 750 brats at a time - approximately 2,500 per hour.

All proceeds from the Big Taste Grill will benefit the Brian Piccolo Fund. The Johnsonville Big Taste Grill will also be in Deacon Tailgate Town for the football game against Miami on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Bring your family and friends to be a part of the Demon Deacon Baity Street Bash as the Deacs get ready to take on the Miami Hurricanes. Join in the festivities as admission and parking are free of charge. Fans are encouraged to park in the Gold Lot or the VIP Lot at BB&T Field. For more information, contact the Wake Forest Sports Marketing Department at (336) 758-5011.

We look forward to seeing you there!
