The Charlotte Hornets and hospitality partner Levy, led by Spectrum Center Executive Chef John Morey, welcomed fans to All-Star Weekend with special menus showcasing the best the league has to offer.
The selections are the result of six months of planning and recipe testing. During the ongoing event, 40 chefs, including 10 supporting from other Levy locations, served fans not only from regular Spectrum concessions stands but also an additional 25 points of sale, including two new main concourse Jack Daniel’s mobile bars featuring a Mason jar Jack Daniel’s cocktail, and a new Budweiser mobile bar featuring Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager and Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer.
Levy expects to sell 10,000 pounds of smoked BBQ, 1,000 turkey legs, 8,000 pounds of chicken tenders and 700 gallons of coffee for NBA crews throughout the weekend as the arena’s in-house smoker has been running nearly 24/7 beginning Feb, 1 and continuing through All-Star Weekend (Feb. 15-17).
Fans will savor house-smoked Carolina barbecue and “visiting flavors” inspired by cities around the league. Here’s a photo roundup of some of the selections offered.
