Due to the insanely high demand, Rick Pitino has agreed to sign 400 more of the specially-made Maker's Mark bottles bearing his likeness. The signing will take place on Sunday, July 14 at 4 p.m. at a ticketed event at Molly Malone's Irish Pub and Restaurant, located at 3900 Shelbyville Road in Louisville.

Here are the rest of the details:

Tickets may be picked up in advance at no charge with the purchase of food or drink during this week at the Molly Malone's location at 3900 Shelbyville Road, beginning after 5 p.m. on Monday, July 8. Each of the 400 tickets will allow the bearer to have one bottle signed on Sunday and only the 2013 commemorative bottles will be signed. Pitino is receiving no fee for the signing and there is no charge for the ticket.

Proceeds from the sales of the bottles, which were sold in retail stores on June 7, will go toward the UofL Academic Center of Excellence, an $8 million, state-of-the-art facility that will be built on the Cardinals' campus. Pitino signed 700 bottles at a June 13 event.

The commemorative bottles will not be signed at the UofL basketball offices. Please do not attempt to bring a bottle to campus to be signed. Maker's Mark® is a registered trademark of Maker's Mark Distillery, Inc.
