The 16th annual Cincinnati Taste of the NFL was on Wednesday night, and I had the pleasure of attending.
The Bengals hosted 44 local chefs, players, coaches, and hundreds of fans for a night of socializing and feasting. All proceeds from tickets and auctioned merchandise went directly to Freestore Foodbank to help provide meals for needy families and children in the community. This year, the fans helped to raise roughly $130,000, which is enough to supply 405,000 meals to families in the community.
Not only was the cause noble, but the food was amazing and the players were friendly. I described each part of the evening here, but I want to spend this one retelling some of the fun conversations I had with some of the players.
Leading up to the event, I studied pictures of the players so that I would not be embarrassed by not recognizing anyone.
