[Event] Watching NFL with Paul Wahlberger and TIFF menu specials

Website: http://wahlburgers.ca/
Address: 46 Blue Jays Way (Soho Hotel), Toronto ON
When I attended: September 11th, 2016

This is my 3rd time to Wahlburgers, and it has been memorable at every visit (read about opening night, and my lunch visit to Wahlburgers). On Sept. 11th evening, my husband and I joined Chef Paul Wahlberg to watch the New England Patriots take on the Arizona Cardinals in the season kick-off. I brought my NFL loving husband as I rarely watch football, with the exception of the Superbowl. Yes, I am a bandwagoner.

At the event, I had an opportunity to sample Wahlburgers regular menu items, as well as their fall and new TIFF menu items. Some of the highlights of my meal included the BBQ Bacon Burger, The Thanksgiving Burger, tator tots and the chocolate frappe.

With a live DJ, tons of football loving fans, and Chef Paul in the house, it made for a fun evening! Come by to Wahlburger for some good eats and possibly celebrity spottings! Hopefully Marky Mark will drop by.
