As you know, the best professional football players from the AFC face their counterparts from the NFC in the Pro Bowl every year in the All-Star season closer. Traditionally, the game has been played in Honolulu's 50,000-seat Aloha Stadium on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, providing a reward trip for qualifying players and picture-perfect playing conditions against a backdrop of blue skies, clear water, and swaying palm trees.
However, the NFL has changed its policy and now votes annually for the Pro Bowl venue.
Here's the background info you want about Aloha Stadium for when the Pro Bowl is played there:
Now for the inside info:
There is a little-known pre-game Tailgate Party at Richardson Field, directly across the street from Aloha Stadium (near the intersection of Salt Lake Blvd. & Ka'meha'meha Highway).
The event offers an up-close and personal chance to hang with celebrities, NFL business partners, and local dignitaries. The Official NFL Pro Bowl Tailgate Party includes: Food stations featuring local & mainland cuisine from some of Hawaii's premiere restaurants, hosted bar including soft drinks, beer & wine, appearances by NFL players & celebrities, the Pro Bowl cheerleaders & NFL team mascots, live entertainment, and an exclusive Pro Bowl gift for all attendees.
The Tailgate Party is not well-publicized, because attendance is so limited. But now you know the secret and can amaze your friends with your new-found insights.
