Minnesota! -- SKOL VIKS...
John Velek - that's Super Vman to you and I - was my host for the weekend. we had a great time doing some TV media, where we met Keb' Mo' and what a Vikings game on Sunday. Thanks V!
We also had some guests help out with the taste-off this year. Saturday Night turned out to be a pre-tailgate party with some good freinds from Chargers Country making the journey to cheer on the bolts.
Kevin Roberts, the Food Dude and Ron Steen, aka Mix Master Ron and Jay, The Tailgate Guy - oh, that's me seen here having a couple drinks and snacks at Chino Latino in Minny's Uptown District. Not seen here are Brian Malarkey and his wife, Shelly, Truck and Joe, aka Water Boy! By the way Joe, thanks for everything bud!
After a great Saturday night out, we all met up in the tailgate lot before Sunday's game and had a great time tasting what the Blacktop's Best had to offer, Turducken Chili was phenominal. Great dish V! Top Chef's Brian Malarkey, Mix Master Ron and The Tailgate Guy chill in "The Mink's Nest" RADical rig between tastes.
There was a cool little bar across the street form the parking lot called "The Little Wagon." Cool place that we visited a few times throughout the day and evening.
Brian Malarkey from Top Chef Miami and Executive Chef of the Ocean Aire Seafood Room in San Diego, CA is seen here posing with a fan in the lot.
When we finally got into the game, John Velek and the Minnesota Vikings had arranged tickets for all of us. Thanks for the seats boys. We had a great time, or at least I did. We were able to watch Adrian Peterson break the NFL Single Game Rushing Record with 296 yards and 3 TDs in a Vikings Victory over the Chargers. Awesome game.
