What: EKU HOCO Block Party ft. The Family Dog

Where: The Family Dog

When: Friday, October 21, 2022 from 7 PM – 10 PM

Details: Celebrate EKU Homecoming like it was meant to be celebrated by joining us for the first ever EKU HOCO Block Party featuring The Family Dog. You'll be "walking on Water Street" to live music and enjoying a cold beverage and delicious food from one of our many vendors. Oh, and did we mention The Family Dog?

It's been 22 years since The Family Dog closed its doors to the public...until now.

For one night only we will be opening up the iconic Richmond establishment for tours and pictures! Relive your memories (or lack thereof) from the 70's, 80's, and 90's with fellow Colonels and members of the bar's staff from all those years ago. This is a Homecoming affair that you won't want to miss!
