Green Bay Packer Backers Unite
It was a sea of dark green and gold on Sunday as the Nashville Packer Backers enjoyed a pre-game tailgating party in the parking lot of Jay’s Sports Grill in Franklin, TN. Better weather couldn’t have been had this past gameday as local Packer fans enjoyed brats, hot dogs, chili mac, all the fixings, and beer while waiting for their beloved team to take on the New Orleans Saints.
Once the game began, the party moved inside to Jay’s Sports Grill. Located in Franklin Family Entertainment Center, Jay’s Sports Grill boasts one of the largest television screens in Franklin, along with 15 others, to catch all your favorite sports teams and their rivals. And although they need to be moved out to make room for almost 175 “Packer Backers”, three upscale billiard tables are normally in the sports grill for patrons to enjoy, along with FREE Texas Hold ‘Em on certain nights. Check out Franklin Lane’s website for more details and times you can play poker at www.franklinfec.com or www.franklinlanes.com.
Okay, so how do you become a member of this fun Nashville Packer Backers club? Easy. Just show up on game day at Jay’s Sports Grill, inside the bowling alley. The cost to join is a mere $20 per season, and you get quite a bit for your money:
- Receive a long sleeve Nashville Packer Backers club shirt
- Two tailgate parties during the season (Held in the parking lot of Franklin Family Entertainment Center, members receive free food and beverages.)
- Family friendly…Jay’s Sports Grill is non smoking, so bring the kids along to cheer on the Green Bay Packers too.
- Every Packer game will be shown at Jay’s, so you can route your beloved team on in front of a HUGE television…not a bad seat in the house.
- Raffles and prizes (Feeling lucky?)
- Make new friends with whom you definitely have something in common 🙂
As mentioned earlier, two tailgate parties come with your Packer Backers membership. But what about all the other times Green Bay plays? Jay’s Sports Grill has you (and your appetite) covered. If you visit their website, once again that was www.franklinfec.com, you can view their awesome food menu. We’re talking pizza, quesadillas, spinach dip, patty melts, wings, salads (I know; while I love them, salads aren’t the first thing that come to mind while watching football, are they?). All food is made in-house, fresh daily. You get the point, it’s a great menu that offers all the fan favorites. Don’t forget, you can rinse it all down with an ice cold beer or another beverage from the full service bar.
So come on Nashville Green Bay Packer fans…for the next big game, head on over to Franklin Family Entertainment Center at 1200 Lakeview Drive in Franklin, TN. Come meet fellow fans, enjoy the game on a huge screen, and maybe even join the club. And don’t be too surprised if you hear things like, “Kick it off G loud!”, “G Force!”, or “ Go pack go. Go pack go.” It’s all part of the fun.
