California knows how to party.
Los Angeles’ Super Bowl was one of the most thrilling weekends in recent memory. West Coast represented and a fine example was the incredible annual Players Tailgate. They brought the fun to football in a delicious afternoon just outside SOFI Stadium at Hollywood Park Casino.
Over 2000 guests gathered at the Bullseye Event Group party in the sunshine right before the game to eat, drink and mingle with some of the most famous chefs and football players in the world. And the cherry on top of the scrumptious afternoon was the delightful Guy Fieri holding the court down with his lovable in your face hosting skills.
It was a lifetime of memories before the big game that had the Los Angeles Rams taking home the gold. With a fabulous array of drinks like Charles Woodson Intercept Wines and Simplicity Cold Press Cocktails, as well as food servings of Chef Rene Andrade’s Octopus Sonoran Style with Birria and Todd English’s seafood dish with lobster salad and crab leg and sweet treats by Michelin Star Chef Cris Sanchez My/Mochi, the crowd of 2,000 guests could barely contain their excitement. Bites and sips were taken in between talks by amazing NFL pros both presently playing and famous legends such as Aaron Jones and Rashad Batemen along with ESPN’s Sage Steele.
This was the best party before the game and it scored touchdown after touchdown. And best of all proceeds from tickets supported charitable partners Operation BBQ Relief and the Irie Foundation. National nonprofit Food Recovery Network handled all of the food recovery and packed the surplus food that was donated and transported to local nonprofits that feed food insecure Los Angelenos.
