The District Detroit and global pizza brand Little Caesars have teamed up to welcome football fans to tailgate on Columbia Street before Detroit Lions home games, beginning Sunday, September 17 at 10:00 a.m.
During tailgates, Columbia Street, a pedestrian-only street located in the heart of The District Detroit, will transform into the ultimate football fan zone. Little Caesars, the Official Pizza Sponsor of the Detroit Lions and the National Football League, will be serving up fan favorites and offering opportunities to meet the brand’s iconic mascot, Little Caesar. A “throw zone” will give fans a chance to show off their football skills, and a prize wheel will provide a range of giveaways.
Additionally, all Columbia Street restaurants and their outdoor patios will be open and ready to serve football fans with game day specials. This includes Union Assembly, Mom’s Spaghetti, JoJo’s SHAKEBar, Good Cakes & Bakes, Frita Batidos, Sahara Restaurant and Grill, and the Detroit Tigers, Pepsi and El Rey de las Arepas pop-up experience honoring Miguel Cabrera at 44 W. Columbia Street. Tin Roof and Basan, just blocks away, will also be open and ready to serve fans.
Tailgates will be hosted on Columbia Street starting at 10:00 a.m. before Lions home games on September 17, September 24, October 8, October 30, November 19 and November 23. Lions games will also be broadcast live throughout Columbia Street by 97.1 The Ticket.
