This weekend at Taste of the NFL, two worlds collide. Only one of which we know anything about. And that’s food. The other, football. And to grossly misquote Prissy from Gone with the Wind, “We don’t know nothin’ ‘bout interceptin’ no pigskin!”
But we have been curious about tasting certain NFL players. Does that count?
Sadly, that kind of tasting’s not on the menu, but tons of great food from celebrity chefs the likes of Kent Rathbun (Abacus, Jasper’s), plenty of cocktails and the chance to rub thrice-broken elbows with current and former Dallas Cowboys Players makes this party a Sunday night must.
Plus, today’s the last day to buy discount tickets. (Save even more as a couple!) After that, the price increases and at-the-door-tickets may be limited.
If ever there was a food event that makes us even slightly curious about sports, this is it.
So what if that sport is competitive eating.
