Halftime Chowdown at Liberty Tavern

Football season may be about the actual game of football, but engorging yourself in a hedonistic fashion each week is a close second. Most people do it either at the tailgate or at home, but Liberty Tavern invites everyone to join them and watch their weekly Halftime Chowdown. For every Thursday night NFL game, a Liberty or Hilton team member will go head-to-head against a pre-determined rival for an eating contest specially themed to the week's matchup.
