Catering: We always encourage companies to think of the Kick-Off Party as any other tailgate experience you would have out at the stadiums -- you’re welcome to bring in your own beverages, grill, potluck, etc. We do ask that if you choose to cater your event, you utilize one of the great preferred vendors, Brancato's, Hy-VeeJack Stack (Full), Jack Stack (DropOff) or Kansas City Catering. These vendors have specialized their menu offerings just for the Kick-Off Party and are happy to work with you to make your tailgate experience as easy as possible!
