New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller will be hosting the “I Eight One Preseason Kickoff Party” at the Village Pourhouse in New York City this Saturday – a day before the Jets open training camp. “I Eight One,” which plays off of Keller’s No. 81 jersey, is the name of a monthly food column Keller writes for the New York Times. At the event this Saturday, Keller and the restaurant will be debuting a new “I Eight One” veggie wrap, and Keller will be signing autographs and hosting various prize giveaways.
Keller will also be talking to fans about the new wrap and he’ll be writing about it for his August column in the New York Times. The goal of “I Eight One” is to cover the world of food from the unique perspective of a professional athlete while inspiring people to try new and different things before forming an opinion.
Other Jets players will be joining Keller at the event, which takes place at the downtown Village Pourhouse location at 64 3rd Avenue at 11th Street.
Fans are encouraged to visit Keller’s Facebook (facebook.com/dustinkeller81) and Twitter page (twitter.com/dustinkeller81) for more food entries and other information from the Jets tight end. Official “I Eight One” merchandise can be purchased at www.iEIGHTone.com.
