Nashville, Tennessee has been on a bit of a winning streak over the past few years and it continued to shine under the bright lights of the NFL Draft last year. Not only did the entire event come off without a hitch, it did so while smashing the NFL’s previous record for attendance as an astounding 600,000 people participated in the festivities in downtown Nashville over the three-day event.
Unfortunately, there will be no in-person NFL Draft this season. The league has shifted toward an entirely virtual draft in order to accommodate the COVID-19 pandemic. NFL teams and potential draftees will not be able to gather in a centralized location this year, and fans won’t be able to pack into their friends’ and family’s houses and apartments to watch as picks are made that will either make or break their upcoming season. It’s a huge bummer for all sports fans, but just because you are “social distancing” doesn’t mean you can’t have a blast this weekend! Allegro is here to help you plan the best “safer at home” draft party possible.
As with any sports watching event, it’s all about the food and we have got you covered on some fan favorites that will get you in the cheering mood!
Fanfare: You’re going to need something to munch on because you’ll be stress eating during the lead-up and we have you covered with the ever-favorite football snack: WINGS!
