Awesomeness That Went Down At Our NFL Draft Party

Last month we threw the Awesomest NFL Draft Party at Municipal Bar+ Dining and as usual there was plenty of bacon, sports and beer goodness!

We were spitting fire as Hormel Black Label Bacon was giving away a crazy amount of coupons and packages for free bacon (yes, free bacon), Mancrates was putting Baconators to the test by having them see how fast they could open a Man Crate with a crowbar, Wrigleyville Sports was doing it up by making sure that Bears fans were looking the freshest for this upcoming NFL season, and Magic Hat was there pouring delicious #9 and Dream Machine. Oh, and the NFL Draft was going on.

We go hard in the paint with everything we do and this Awesomest NFL Draft Party was no exception. Here’s a look at the awesomeness that went down.

The video recap. Lots of bacon on bacon on bacon.

You aren’t going to find a fresher suit than this one being worn by my boy John Mathews. G-Hunt is rocking a Kevin Greene Panthers jersey. Much respect.

It was a good knight in the Bacon household and soon to be Mrs. Bacon was thrilled to see Blake Bortles drafted so high. What a fantastic year for me to start watching and rooting for UCF football.

Soon to be Mrs. Bacon is also a Bills fan and I’ve got tons of friends that are Browns fans who were hoping to see Johnny Manziel in a Browns uniform. That was a steep price to pay for Sammy Watkins but there’s no doubt that dude is a baller.

Cheeto knows how to get down. He calls it Bacon Rambo.

You can actually feel the hope through this picture.

This is the roller coaster reactions of these two Browns fans. First when the Browns passed up on drafting Johnny Manziel and then when they finally pull the trigger.

Man Crates ships brag worthy gifts for men that you have to open with a crowbar. They are just as awesome as it sounds. Any time someone wins a Man Crate at one of our events we make sure to film them opening it to see how much of a man they really are. This is the results.
