Eat, Drink And Beat Brady

January 30, 2018

Super Bowl LII is fast approaching, and we’re looking at the same old story: Tom Brady and the Patriots win again. Some fans just get treated to an embarrassment of riches. It’s a foreign concept to Minnesota sports fans, but familiar to foodies. 

With this year’s big game being held in the culinary hotbed of our great hometown, fans from near and far will have the chance to treat themselves to the smorgasbord that is our food and drink scene. So, without further ado, I present to you a sampling of some of the Fast Horse crew’s game day-inspired favorites.
