The 2016 Players Tailgate took place on February 7, 2016, in the parking lot of the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. The purpose of the Players Tailgate is to provide guests with not only an out of this world culinary experience, but to also allow guests the opportunity to mingle with NFL players and celebrities alike. The 2016 Players Tailgate proved to be Bullseye’s best tailgate yet, featuring everyone from NFL Pro Bowlers to supermodel surprise guests! Let’s take a look at what made the 2016 Players Tailgate the best tailgate in San Francisco!
The Chefs and Food
The Players Tailgate featured the biggest lineup yet! Guy Fieri, Aaron May, Beau MacMillan and G Garvin led a full staff that provided amazing food to the guests. The lineup included a super steak sandwich station, a 16-foot nacho bar, a “KILLER raw bar,” as Guy Fieri put it, and a WHOLE HOG roast!
This all-you-can-eat all-star smorgasbord of food was so delicious, it had guests telling local news crews the food was “worth every penny.”
The players attending this year’s 2016 Players Tailgate were better than ever! This year’s tailgate had nearly 30 players in attendance, ranging from Super Bowl champions to retired players.
The lineup of players included everything past Super Bowl champions to role players. Shane Vereen, former New England Patriot and current New York Giant, Indianapolis Colts Vontae Davis and Matt Overton, Kansas City Chief Jamaal Charles, New Orleans Saint Cameron Jordan, and so many others were all in attendance! The players were on hand to eat and hang out with guests all afternoon!
The VIP celebrities that attended this year’s Players Tailgate were unbelievable! Aside from our crew of celebrity chefs and players, we had Fox Sports sideline reporter Erin Andrews on hand to emcee the event! Andrews did player interviews and interacted with the crowd throughout the entire tailgate.
We also had a surprise appearance from Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima! Lima is one of Victoria’s Secret’s most popular “angels,” and was great on stage with Erin Andrews! Among some of the other celebrity guests, we had Maria Menounos from E! News, rapper Ludacris and more!
To say the 2016 Players Tailgate was a success would be an understatement. Thank YOU, the guests, for making this year’s Players Tailgate the best tailgate on the planet! Don’t worry, we are already hard at work to ensure next year’s tailgate is better than the last. See you in Houston in 2017!
