I Had a Ball at the Duane Reade Big Game Experience

CB-sponsored-post-white-script-400Did you know that Sunday’s Big Game that was held in New Jersey was the first-ever outdoor championship game in a cold city? As you can imagine, there were a whirlwind of Big Game football activities in and around the New York City area such as the Duane Reade Big Game Experience. While I’m not the biggest football fan out there, It’s hard to not get swept up into all the excitement that was surrounding the upcoming game.

Free Coffee at the Duane Reade Big Game Experience

Last week, I was invited to attend a Duane Reade Big Game Experience event. Of course I jumped at the chance to be a part of such a great event. Upon arrival, I was greeted by this friendly umpire who was distributing free coffee.  This was a nice touch especially since it’s been brutally cold here in the NYC area.

I then entered the store and was impressed with all the #DRBigGame related décor and swag.

Gang Green’s very own Jeremy Kerley was there to sign autographs and take pictures with his fans.

He was really nice and super friendly and graciously autographed a football for Z.E.N.

The event was sponsored by Pepsi and while I was there, I noticed a whole wall chock full of Pepsi Big Game related items.

I love when stores take the time to group related items together, especially when you’re shopping for a specific event.  Since I was attending a family gathering on Sunday, I scooped up a few snacks to bring along.

So if you’re ever in the market for game day related items, whether it be snacks, drinks or décor, Walgreens and Duane Reade will definitely have what you need.
