Players Tailgate

MINNEAPOLIS – The usual tailgate party is usually filled with beer, barbeque, and other appetizers. The Players Tailgate had ALL of that – plus more! Hosted by Food Network celebrity chef Guy Fieri and Chef Aaron May, the Players Tailgate lived up to its top billing as the pre-game party to attend.

DJ Irie rocked the 1s and 2s while almost 3,000 attendees noshed on whole hog bbq, sashimi, a raw bar filled with crab, lobster, and oysters, and a hot bar sponsored by Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

On-stage host Carissa Thompson did a fantastic job entertaining the football-crazy crowd with on-stage interviews with current NFL stars Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys and Kareem Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs.
