Have Hogback points left over? Select local Frisco shops will be accepting hogbacks until Sunday evening, so your money does not have to go to waste if your eyes are bigger than your stomach and you have tickets leftover. They will start serving alcohol at 8pm on Thursday, however, the BBQ food doesn't start until on Friday at 11am. Beat the lines and purchase your Hogbacks here. Pick up your pre-purchased Hogbacks at will-call. Looking for some VIP action?
