Where dyed-in-the-wool football fans gather, food trucks are sure to follow.
Schwan's Co. is taking the idea a step further with its Tailgate Truck Tower. The four-story-tall food stand, made from six of the company's iconic gold delivery trucks stacked next to and on top of the other, wouldn't look out of place in a "Mad Max" movie.
Fans will be able to sample a wide variety of hot food offerings (for free!) from the Marshall- and Bloomington-based company, with a menu that includes chocolate chip cookies, chicken fries, chicken bites, chicken egg rolls, penne pasta with prosciutto and dark chocolate ice cream miniatures
And, if free food is not your thing, the tower also features a trivia video game, which will be projected on one side of the tower, and an interactive display that allows visitors to make a digital bobblehead (as shown below).
The tower will be unveiled during Super Bowl Live on Nicollet Mall, with construction starting in a few weeks where Nicollet Mall meets 8th Street. When it’s built, the it will measure about 40 feet high and 44.5 feet wide, and weigh an estimated 70,000 pounds, the company says.
