When you run the ultimate sports bar, and Drew Brees is one of your owners, putting together the “Ultimate Louisiana Football Weekend” seems like a natural fit.
Fans of the All-Pro quarterback and his favorite sports bar, Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar, are invited to enter an online charity raffle to win an incredible weekend football package featuring tickets to both an LSU and New Orleans Saints game, a private tour of the Saints training facility, a meet-and-greet with Brees himself, and much more.
The four-day football feast includes:
October 14—fly to New Orleans, begin a three-night stay at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (two rooms) and enjoy a sumptuous dinner for four at a chefs table (Restaurant TBD).
October 15—Bus to Baton Rouge on Walk-On’s “Sprinter” for a pre-game party at Walk-On’s Burbank location; then head over to Tiger Stadium to watch LSU take on Southern Miss. Tickets and field passes provided. Then take the Sprinter back to New Orleans for the evening.
October 16—The group will enjoy Club seats and field passes for the Saints/Panthers game at the Louisiana Superdome, followed by a post-game party at the Walk-On’s on Poydras.
October 17—Meet Drew Brees at the Saints training facility in Metairie and he’ll personally autograph four jerseys. Then wrap up the weekend with a private tour of the facility.
Raffle tickets must be purchased by noon central on September 21. Prices and complete rules can be found at walk-ons.com. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. The winner will be chosen September 21.
“Culture, food and football are three words that perfectly sum up a true Louisianan and this sweepstakes covers it all,” says Brandon Landry, co-founder and owner of Walk-On’s Enterprises. “We really appreciate all of the support we receive from our guests so we thought it would be fun to team up with Drew to offer a one-of-a-kind experience for some lucky winners. We are especially excited to partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs to help support the life changing work they do in our communities.”
Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s—voted “Best Sports Bar in North America” by ESPN—now has eight locations throughout Louisiana, three in Baton Rouge, and one each in New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, and Lake Charles. Other locations are on the way in Zachary, Covington, Alexandria, Bossier City and Metairie, as well as Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock and Tyler, Texas. Several additional markets across the Southern U.S. are likewise on the drawing board.
