The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. will induct former Packers quarterback Brett Favre at the 45th Annual Hall of Fame Induction Banquet.

The banquet will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2015, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
1919 Kitchen & Tap is scheduled to open on July 24, 2015 on the first floor of the Atrium (below where Curly's Pub was located). We hope you'll join us at our new restaurant as we continue to make history with respect to our past!
