Last week, in anticipation of Super Bowl XLVIII, the 50 Yard Lounge experience took place at One Penn Plaza. The 5-day event brought together celebrity chefs, football personalities, and many of the best culinary hotspots. Football personalities in attendance included Joe Theismann, Jets owner Woody Johnson, Doug Flutie, Chris Carter, and many others. Marc Forgione, Pat LaFrieda, Michael White, and Max Brenner, were among the many culinary experts in attendance.

Here are some highlights from the event. Last Wednesday, guests enjoyed Pastrami Short Ribs from Marc Forgione, LaFrieda Original Blend 5 oz. Burgers from Pat LaFrieda, and Kobe Beef Hot Dogs from the culinary experts on Celebrity Cruises. They also enjoyed live performances, a meet and greet with Woody Johnson, and a full open bar. On Saturday, guests were treated to Pastrami on Rye with Mustard sandwiches from Katz’s Deli and Pat LaFrieda Filet Mignon Steak Sandwiches. They also enjoyed a special how-to demonstration by Doug as well as a live performance by his band. What a great mix of football and culinary delights!
