Q-CRUISER To Return To ‘The Clink’ For 2011-2012 Season


August 20th, 2011

This football season, Seahawks tailgaters will find themselves drawn away from their coolers and bottled beverages by a vamped-up party tent equipped with flat screen TV’s, social media and phone charging stations, free beverages and plenty of chips and queso–a bonafide pre-game Avalon for any football fan!

At the first Seahawks home game in September, the Beyond Traditional team will kick off the second annual Qdoba VIP Tailgating Experience at the newly-monikered Century Link Field in Seattle, Wash.

After nomming on Qdoba chips and queso, fans can wrap up the Qdoba pre-game experience by perfecting their Heisman pose for a photo in front of the Qdoba Truck and stopping by the ‘social stations’ to tweet to their friends about how awesome the @Qdobatailgate party is. By ‘liking’ Qdoba Seattle’s page on Facebook, fans can enter themselves to win the Ultimate VIP Tailgating Experience–winning fans will be granted four suite-level tickets to an upcoming Seahawks game!

Qdoba Seattle and Beyond Traditional will also be working together to introduce a new, bracket-style competition to find the best tailgate BBQ-ers in Seattle. Over eight Seahawks games, parking lotchefs-de-cuisine will put their spatulas to the test to whip up the tastiest tailgate entrees this side of Monday Night.

After advancing through several heats, the winning individual/team will be selected by Qdoba chefs. The plate that most closely encompasses Qdoba’s values of ‘fresh,’ ‘grilled’ and ‘fun’ will win a trophy, recognition by Qdoba Seattle and the opportunity to have their Superbowl party catered by Qdoba.
