The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the foreman than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today’s Groupon for tickets to a Maxim football party at Park Tavern, held on Friday, February 3, from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get party admission for two and two complimentary Heineken beers (a $60 value).
- For $55, you get party admission for four and two complimentary Heineken beers (a $120 value).<p>
At Park Tavern, revelers will celebrate the upcoming pigskin contest with a party hosted by Maxim and kept alive by pulsing DJ beats and the electrifying presence of models. At 8 p.m., attendees begin their descent down the red carpet toward a VIP entrance to enjoy a sushi bar and brewery, whose renovated granite building dates back to 1905 and was previously a golf clubhouse. Freshly fueled guests will mingle and take pictures with Maxim models and draw up algorithms to predict the arc at which nachos are thrown onto the football field.
Though not included in the value of this deal sustenance will be available for purchase, including bacchanalian beverages such as fresh-fruit sangria, handcrafted beers brewed onsite ($4), and Heineken bottles ($4). The menu’s morsels of sushi ($6.99+) will dance into the arms of waiting chopsticks, and chefs will slip Angus beef or Great Range bison onto bakery-fresh rolls ($7.49+) to further prevent overzealous fans from gnawing on footballs for protein.
The Park Tavern combines the historical grandeur of a century-old locale with the forward-thinking practices of a modern, eco-friendly restaurant. Some of the original woodwork and stone from its past life remains, chronicling the building's history as a horse stable in 1905, a golf clubhouse in 1928, and a space shuttle in 1969. The Tavern’s current layout contains an elegant events space, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, an ice-skating rink, and a live music and festival venue that features the annual Oyster Crawfish Festival.
Adopting green habits, the Tavern's owners developed a rainwater-recycling system to feed its plants and water its landscape, and switched to low-flow plumbing and LEED-certified hand dryers. Its concern for the environment extends to its menu as well: locally harvested ingredients and wild-caught fish support coastal communities and local farms while simultaneously ensuring each plate contains quality, eco-friendly fare. The lineup of dishes includes sushi rolls brimming with sashimi-grade Hawaiian tuna and meaty burgers bursting with fresh-ground Angus beef or great range bison, all of which can be paired with a house microbrew.
