As the exclusive retail provider for Super Bowl LIII, Aramark Sports & Entertainment hosted their third annual partnership brunch at the Westside Warehouse in downtown Atlanta on Saturday, February 2, 2019. The “Recover & Recharge” brunch featured beverage activations inspired by classic mixology, vintage apothecaries and authentic antique décor. Guests sampled from over a dozen stations, each showcasing Aramark beverage partners’ creative libations intended to refresh and revitalize their guests during the busy weekend of football events. Attendees enjoyed a unique art installation from artist Scott James Gundersen, which he built entirely from used wine corks. Guests also had an opportunity to chat with the new program partner and owner of Aviation Gin, Ryan Reynolds. Aramark’s NFL partners and guests enjoyed this highly anticipated and exclusive peek at the latest creations from top suppliers in the industry.
