After hitting my one-year mark this summer, it’s now fun to participate in annual events the second time around and see how they grow and progress.

For the second year in a row, we were invited to participate in the St. Louis Rams Fan Fest — their official fan day before pre-season games start. It’s a sort of initiation for the new team and the fans, if you will.

One of the highlights of the event for me, was hosting the Feast Magazine Burger Showdown, where local restaurants were able to compete to have their coveted burger duplicated and sold at Rams games during the upcoming season. What made it even more cool (than sampling amazingly delicious burgers), was guest judge and competitive eater Kobayashi!

After all the festivities, fans were able to stay and watch the 2014 Rams scrimmage.
