Packers fans are invited to bring the spirit of Green Bay to the Tampa area a day early with a Packers Everywhere pep rally at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24.
The festivities will take place at Whiskey Joe's Bar & Grill in Tampa, located at 7720 W Courtney Campbell Causeway, Tampa, Fla. Whiskey Joe's will open at 11 a.m., with pre-rally festivities and Packers prizing beginning at 4 p.m.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday excitement by greeting fans and participating in a Q-and-A session with Packers Everywhere host, Rebecca Zaccard. Packers alumni Nick Collins and Mike Butler will attend to socialize and take photos with fans and will share their thoughts on the next day's game against the Buccaneers.
A roundtable discussion with Packers.com's Wes Hodkiewicz and Mike Spofford will conclude the event.
Fans planning to attend the rally are encouraged to sign up in advance for Packers Pass to have a chance to win autographed Packers items such as an Allen Lazard signed-helmet, AJ Dillon signed-football, and other prizes.
