NFL Pre-season Kickoff

This Sunday is the kickoff of the 2014 NFL pre-season, aka, the start of one of the best seasons of the year. Do you know how we’ll be celebrating? Drinking great cocktails with close friends, in our favorite jerseys, of course. Whether you support Superbowl XLVIII champs, the Seattle Seahawks, the NY Giants, or any team in-between, the start of pre-season is definitely celebration worthy.
