The options are endless when you are planning a party. We love the idea of a signature cocktail for each team playing, but since we aren’t psychic we can’t help you with that today! However, you can always stop by Bill’s Package Store on Fort Campbell Blvd in Clarksville, and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff for drink inspiration. At Bill’s Package Store we have a beverage for every party!
