“Taste of the NFL”

Described as “the most upscale tailgate party in Cleveland,” Taste of the NFL celebrated its 11th year in Cleveland Browns Stadium. As usual, Cleveland Browns, both current players and alumni, were on hand to chat with guests, sign autographs, and reminisce with each other. They did not “hide” in the VIP room, but wandered through the City View Club Lounge.
Most gregarious were event Honorary Co-chairs Kevin Mack and Joe Thomas. They made several announcements exhorting guests to bid on the silent and live auction items which mostly consisted of special dinners at area restaurants. While the younger guests were agog at the hulking talent of the Browns, their parents tried, probably unsuccessfully, to sample from the two-dozen-plus restaurants that brought tastings. Specially selected wines and beers complemented the foods.
Foodbank Executive Director Anne Goodman was excited about the turnout. “I think we sold as many tickets this year as any other” she said. Along with Monica Robbins, Ms.Goodman helped host a short program recognizing the Cleveland Browns for their contributions over the last decade.
Other special touches included a greeting of guests by the Brecksville/Broadview Heights Marching Band, and a roving “Chomps” who graciously posed for pictures. STORY BY ART THOMAS/PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROB WETZLER
