Most Kansas fans probably have heard of Larry Bud’s Sports Bar and Grill on 2120 North Woodlawn.

That’s one of the biggest hot spots for KU?watch parties for Jayhawk football, basketball, even baseball.

Football coach Mark Mangino is making an appearance there at a KU family event Thursday starting at 5 p.m.

Mangino will play catch with kids in a tented area as part of a big cookout the sports bar will host. There will be hamburgers and hot dogs available at a special price, and there will be plenty paraphernelia of Jayhawk goodies. 

During the evening’s events, Mangino will show KU’s?24-21 win against Virginia Tech in the 2007-08 Orange?Bowl. He later will speak about the Jayhawks’ upcoming season and other football topics at 7.
