NBA All-Star weekend is the most action packed, star studded weekend in the NBA. It’s a place where the brightest stars and greatest athletes gather to watch some of the best basketball in the world.

So as you’re planning your trip to New Orleans for the festivities you’re probably checking certain essential items off of your list:

If that’s where your list ends you’re forgetting one of the most crucial components to an amazing NBA All-Star 2014 experience:

  •  Hospitality Venues

Have no idea what I’m talking about? You’re in luck! Here are the 3 reasons why Hospitality Venues matter during NBA All-Star 2014.

1. No tailgating? No problem!

Any sports fan can tell you that a sporting event without tailgating is like, peanut butter and no jelly. Like spaghetti and no meatballs. Like, well you get the picture. Having access to hospitality venues at NBA-All Star 2014 ensures that you get into the best pre-game party before the game!

Miss eating all your favorites prior to the game? This exclusive hospitality party venue has more food than you can consume in the 1.5 hours you’re there (yeah, it’s open an hour and a half before game time). From fan favorites to local cuisine your hospitality venue features an all-you-can-eat buffet of gourmet, chef-prepared food.

Liquor, beer and wine for those 21 years and older who want to indulge before the game, and soft drinks for children and those who opt for non alcoholic beverages, will also be available at your hospitality venue. These food and drink options are included with your hospitality access passes.  

Hey, do you enjoy meeting NBA players? Us, too!

2. Meet and Greet NBA Legends and Current Players

Unlike your average tailgate or pre-game, our exclusive hospitality party venue will feature an opportunity to meet and greet Hall of Fame, NBA Legends as well as current NBA players.

Some NBA Legends and players at past hospitality venues include:

  • Robert Horry
  • George Gervin
  • Chris Mullin
  • Mark Price
  • Darryl Dawkins
  • Sam Perkins
  • Chandler Parsons
  • Ron Harper

…and that’s just within the last two years.  

3. Interactive experiences

If these reasons weren’t enough, your exclusive hospitality venue is also huge party! Inside there are games for kids and interactive experiences for folks of all ages. The venue itself is beautifully outfitted for an incredible atmosphere with loads of activities to make you wish it was open longer than 1.5 hours.
