What do you get when you combine a night of delicious food and drink, terrific live entertainment, and the best fans in the NBA? Taste of the Warriors, that’s what.
The Golden State Warriors hosted their fifth annual food and wine festival on Monday, March 10, an exclusive event for Season Ticket Holders. The event took place on a breathtaking evening just outside Oracle Arena, where more than 4,000 Season Ticket Holders got the chance to indulge in some of the best food and wine Northern California has to offer, all while mingling with the players and coaches of the team they so vehemently support.
In addition to the 60-plus delectable food trucks and wineries that were in attendance, Taste of the Warriors brought Season Ticket Holders closer to the team with Q&A sessions with Warriors players, intermixed with live musical entertainment all evening long. Warriors players and coaches were in attendance, and displayed their gratitude for Season Ticket Holder support by mingling with the crowd, signing autographs, posing for pictures, and even helping serve the food and pour the wine. In addition, the event featured a silent auction of Warriors-themed art to benefit the Warriors Community Foundation, and gave Season Ticket Holders the chance to interact with each other outside of a game environment, an opportunity many seemed to enjoy.
“This was a great event for Season Ticket Holders to mingle with other fans outside of the games,” said Warriors fan Maureen Martin. “The food and wine selections were off the hook."
Not surprisingly, those in attendance took to social media to document their experience at this fun-filled event. View some of the top #TasteOfTheWarriors photos as shared by the event’s guests.
Once again, Taste of the Warriors proved to be a wonderful experience for all sides of the Warriors’ Season Ticket Holder family. However, most importantly, the night served as a chance for the Warriors organization to express their heartfelt appreciation for the best fan base the league has to offer.
Packing Oracle Arena on a nightly basis to form perhaps the strongest home court advantage in the league, Season Ticket Holders are “truly the heart of the Warriors,” as Head Coach Mark Jackson proclaimed to those in attendance. They are a valued and indispensable part of the Warriors’ family, and Taste of the Warriors is but a token of the organization’s appreciation for everything they do in support of the team and franchise.
