Living the Suite Life

Today, as part of my new Lady #RamsFan partnership, I had the opportunity to watch the St. Louis Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys football game from a VIP suite with my fellow lady bloggers. We also had a chance to taste some of the new food now available at Rams games this season. So here is the scoop on the new eats at the Dome for the next time you're there for a Rams game!

(Author's note: I did not try every food offering but I will post photos of everything even if I did not try it!) 

Our first tasting was beef and chicken tacos from Carneros Cantina. This was one of the items I did not try, but everyone who did try them said they were very tasty!

Then they brought in one of my favorites ... Strange Donuts! The flavors they brought us were: Gooey Butter, Maple Bacon, Camp Fire, Chicken n' waffle and 5th Down. The Gooey Butter is one of my favorites so of course I couldn't pass by a taste of that one! The Chicken n' Waffle donut looked very interesting. It actually had a chicken strip on top of the (waffle flavored?) donut, but I wasn't quite that adventurous today! And the Camp Fire donut had a marshmallow in the middle! Clever!!

Sugar Fire was the next vendor and they brought in Brisket Cheesesteak Sandwiches and Smoked Sausages. I tried the Brisket Cheesesteak Sandwich and it was amazing. I will definitely buy one of those at the next Rams game I attend!!

Are you sitting down? Crown Candy Kitchen brought in their famous BLT sandwich. I die. Since I had already eaten the Sugar Fire sandwich I just had a bite of Offspring #1's BLT ... but I'm telling you, this is must eat food at the Dome. Must. Eat. Food!!

Go for 2 Tavern (tell me again why we went for it on 4th and inches instead of taking the three points ... oh, I digress) brought by some hand rolled pretzels. One was a regular pretzel with a side of cheese sauce, and one was a pretzel covered in cinnamon sugar and both looked delicious ... but after Sugar Fire and some BLT I figured I should pass.

Finally, The Slice came bye with 18 Inch Pizza slices ... cheese and pepperoni, I really shouldn't have but I had half of a slice of pepperoni and it was quite good!!

For dessert, Bissinger's had two boxes of chocolate in the suite for it, and lets face it ... you can never go wrong with chocolate!

The only thing that could have possibly made today better would have been a Rams win, but I guess we can't have everything, can we?!

I'd like to thank Danielle Smith and the St. Louis Rams for this amazing partnership and I can't wait until the next event!

Until then ... cheers!

How to Have the Best Rams Fan Experience

I am pleased to announce that a few weeks ago the St. Louis Rams invited me into a special partnership with them. In exchange for getting to participate in some of the various experiences offered to Rams Fans at the Edward Jones Dome, it will be my pleasure to report back to you on all of the opportunities that are available to football fans in St. Louis

My first such opportunity is this weekend when the St. Louis Rams face off against the Dallas Cowboys. As a Rams season ticket holder I know what it's like to enjoy the game from my current vantage point, but this weekend I will have a chance to view the game from a VIP Suite. I am very much looking forward to sampling a variety of food from the new restaurants opening up in the Dome this season.

I am also going to get to check out the Lady Ram program. The Lady Ram program is for women where "Football, Fashion and Fitness Meet."

Membership includes:

  • Unique Lady Rams Premium Item
  • Membership Packet
  • Monthly Newsletter
  • Monthly drawings for autographed items, tickets and special experiences
  • Exclusive invitation to: Girls Night Out Fashion Show

The game on Sunday also happens to be the 5th Annual Green Game. As a part of the 5th annual Green Game, the Rams have: 
  • Offset 100% of the electricity used as the Edward Jones Dome for the game with Missouri wind energy credits from Ameren Missouri Pure Power.
  • Offset all fan travel to and from the Edward Jones Dome with carbon offsets.
  • Offset the Dallas Cowboys flight to and from St. Louis with carbon offsets.

Keep an eye out for in-game features throughout the game highlighting the importance of sustainability as well as the Rams Green Team, who will be picking up recyclable materials in the stands! 

Also this Sunday, be one of the first 1,000 Rams fans to receive a $10 food and beverage voucher by presenting your validated same-day Metro ticket at the Metro table during the Official Tailgate Party in Baer Park. 

Stay tuned for more of my upcoming experiences as a St. Louis #RamsFan.
