Eat Too, Brutus in Photos

Eat Too, Brutus 2011 is in the books and things could not have gone better. From the Friday night bender that was Drink Too, Brutus1 to an amazing tailgate and then, of course, the huge win over the Badgers2 to cap things off, the weekend was perfect in just about every sense.

While we're still waiting on a few checks before we publish final numbers, we expect to raise somewhere in the neighborhood of $5,000 for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. None of that would have been possible without the help we received from our sponsors and friends. City Barbeque, Cheryl's Cookies, Oval Brewing, Buckeye Vodka, Grandman, Buckeye Beer and Ares Sportswear stepped up huge for us and we're grateful for their contributions.

I'd love to mention all of the amazing people we met on Saturday, but I'm afraid I'll inadvertently forget someone, so I'll just say that we had an absolute blast and we look forward to seeing you all again on October 6th, 2012 for the Nebraska game.

Let's get to the photos, shall we?

Special thanks to Dave Farris for the stellar photos.

  • 1 On second thought, having Team 11W show up an hour early to pound Patron at Drink Too, Brutus probably wasn't the best of ideas. #DRUNJ
  • 2 Eat Too, Brutus is now 2-0 all-time against top 15-ranked opponents. W00t!

BRETT I LOVE YOU >-- <3 -->

Taquitos.

Welp, if I already wasn't feeling bad enough about not being able to go, I am now. Looks spectacular and I hope to never miss another one. Awesome that someone wrote "Go Tribe, Fuck the Yankees" on Brett's pub crawl shirt. (Heart you, BLeez).

BLeezy17's picture

That was Denny that did that. I knew something was fishy when he spent about 5 minutes signing it. I didn't even get to see it until I got home at about 3:30 am in the morning but it was worth it.

NYC Buckeye's picture

Looks like a good time, will def make it a priority to be there next year for the Nebraska game...  Greg Oden should be contacted regarding a "special guest host" gig each year...

Ramzy Nasrallah's picture

Oh, look - pictures on my phone from Drink too, Brutus that I don't remember taking.

I will definitely be there next year. I don't care what my other committments may be.

Buckeyejason's picture

That looks like an awesome time. Got to make it out next year for sure.

Thanks for the pics.

BUCKEYES BABY!

11W:

Looks like a fine fête. Consistent with your fine website. Keep up the good work!

Elika's picture

So glad this doesn't include pictures from D2B

How firm thy friendship... OH-I-O!

Sarah's picture

Yeah, I probably should have deleted the videos from Jason's Flip camera when I had the chance. At least that's probably a mutually assured destruction sort of thing. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Yes. As I watched the videos, I wept in shame. Now, they no longer exist.

DJ Byrnes's picture

If you want pictures from D2B, just check the Franklin County jailhouse site. Everybody's mugshots should be uploaded by this afternoon.

Yes! I love lazy eyed pictures of drunk hot messes!

Scuba_Steve's picture

@MarkTitus...I would recognize that ugly sweater anywhere - but am embarrassed to say I didn't recognize it on you during the Illinois game.  Hint - we walked into the Buckeyes bar at the same time in the heart of ACC teritory.  Next time I will be prepared to recognized Buckeye royalty when I see it!

M Man's picture

Greg.  Oden.  I'm officially impressed.

So is Buckeye beer any good?  Be honest.

Denny's picture

The pumpkin ale was good, but a touch sweet - an excellent dessert beer, not one for heavy work. The IPA was hoppy and IPAish. Strong, decent, but IPAs aren't my go-to.

Taquitos.

jenks's picture

Can we make sure E2B next year is after the release of GL Christmas Ale and then add that to the list.

M Man's picture

So which Buckeye-brand 'label' would be the go-to choice for Nov. 26?  Since I understand that Labatt's Blue is pretty much out of the question...

Denny's picture

OSU-related, I'm not sure. But state-wide you'd be foolish to not get a 6er of GLBC's Xmas Ale.

Taquitos.

jenks's picture

More of this. And then some more.

Yes the Buckeye Beer was good. Oval brewing made their own concoctions, which I will not complain about. I started with 2 Buckeye Beers and was fairly impressed. I then followed with the Oval's IIPA, Woody Haze, and one that had something about a sunflower girl or something?? Things started getting foggy afterwards.

I preferred the Dunkle and only had two cups as it was gone very quickly.

Buckeye in Athens's picture

Man I wish I could've been there. I'm glad I could at least make the first E2B and I'll definitely be there next year.

Have we narrowed down the list of games for E2B #3 yet? If not, I'd like to suggest another revenge game, this time vs. Nebraska. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Yep. Nebraska is confirmed in the 3rd paragraph at the top of this page.

Guess I should learn to read before looking at the pictures! 

Jason Priestas's picture

No worries. Pics are the best part.

Denster's picture

Our tailgate was next door... I thought that was E2B. I should have walked over.

Congratulations on raising $5K for the Stefanie Spielman fund - truly impressive; you have to feel so great about that. I'm still beating myself up that I didn't make it, but have the Nebraska game circled on the 2012 calendar. Good to put faces with "names" vicariously!

Coach Fickell needs to post this for the rest of the season and next year's Wiscy game... (If he is the Head Coach). Despite the possibility of inferiority, it implies the need to work to improve.

So Fun and great meeting everybody. Loved winning the signed basketball, and rather than faking pregancy at the game I hired a rickshaw to hightail it to safety in my hotel room.  HA!

There were many reasons the official 11W camera stayed tucked away at an undisclosed location.  I think most of the internet is happy to have not seen the D2B photos.

I just noticed those cookies were from Cheryls... best cookies ever. My sister used to be a manager and I can easily say the number of free cookies made it the best time of my life.

hhahaha --- this gets my vote of the best all-time caption, being a die-hard Phil Steele football preview magazine subscriber

Wish I could have been there.  Stupid weekend ovenright shifts.

I'm sorry to have missed this one.  Next year I'd like to think I can make it!
