The 2016 Players Tailgate wasn’t just about the players and celebrities that attended the event. This year’s tailgate was about creating a VIP experience for you, the guests! Aside from the five-star smorgasbord of food and the 30 NFL players in attendance, this year’s Players Tailgate created a social experience unlike any other. The ability to have yourself broadcast on our first ever “Social Media Wall” and interact with players and celebrities gave guests the opportunity to get the official Bullseye VIP treatment. Let’s look at some of the best posts from the 2016 Players Tailgate!
