Kings Foods and Rui Correia from Douro Give You a Taste of Game Time!

28 Jan

Football Players

Some people want to elevate their game (pun definitely intended) when it comes to the spread on game day.  For many, wings and pizza from the freezer just won’t do.  Those foods definitely have their place, but let’s say you want to really impress your friends and family who are over for the game.  What do you do, who do you turn to?  While you have many great options nearby, Kings Food Market in Old Greenwich is worth checking out. 

Check them out on February 2 from 1-4 pm for their first annual “Taste of Game Time” event featuring Rui Correia from Douro.  He’ll be cooking up some of his food from Douro and other great snacks that you can feature during your party this Sunday.  We’re interested to see the kind of foods that he’s picked, especially given his fun play on Portuguese and Mediterranean food with his tapas style menu. 

When you’re there, you should also check out some of the great products that would fit in perfectly at your party such as Calavo Guacamole and Hummus, Rosa Mexicano Salsa, Skinny Pop Popcorn, Tyrrels Potato Crisps, Terrapin Ridge Farm Dips, Fentimans Soda, and Tonnino Tuna.  You can also pick up your catering order for game day, so if you’re interested in that, make sure to call up Kings. 

There are two other things that you should be aware of, though.  You can enter to win the “Dine Out or Stay in Mexican Style” contest, sponsored by Kings and NYC’s own Rosa Mexicano.  The lucky winner will get dinner for two at one of their three NYC spots, the full line of Rosa Mexicano salsas, andKings gift card.  Touchdown! Plus, Kings is giving back to the communities of Greenwich, Stamford, and Port Chester by sponsoring a “Super Bag” food drive event.  All you need to do is contribute $10 and they’ll donate a pre-packed bag to Neighbor to Neighbor in your name.  You also have the option of buying your own items then putting them together to donate.
