The arrival of football season means a few things: bars crowded with jersey-clad fans, intense fantasy rivalries, and, of course, the crave-worthy bites only found at tailgate parties. Leading up to December’s Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl, the college football bowl game held at the Florida Atlantic University stadium, foodies and fans alike will celebrate and fundraise for the Spirit of Giving with an official tailgate party sponsored by Florida Power & Light.
Hosted at the Palm Beach Outlets on October 17, the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl’s Tailgate Party will bring game day–inspired fare from restaurants like Mazie’s, Lynora’s, Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox, and Bolay for $25 a ticket in advance, $35 at the door. In the spirit of competition, chefs will vie for bragging rights in a number of categories, including the People’s Choice award. Attendees will also enjoy an open bar and have the chance to meet ESPN on-air personalities who will be broadcasting live from the event. Big appetites required, jerseys optional, but recommended.
