The New York Jets Taste of the NFL held its annual extravaganza of food, fashion and fighting hunger during the Jets' bye week. This year's 11th Taste of the NFL, presented by MasterCard, Saks Fifth Avenue and ESPN New York 98.7 and again hosted by center Nick Mangold and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, was held Monday, November 10 at 4WTC.
The event benefited the Food Bank For New York City. As Mangold, taking his sixth turn as the event's host, has said: "This is a great opportunity to spend time with the fans and it all goes to a good cause. It's a neat event. I'm a big supporter."
Some of the Jets players provided a highlight of the evening by participating in the Taste of the NFL Fashion Show. Among the players showcasing looks from Saks were Quinton Coples, Willie Colon, Demario Davis, Eric Decker, Nick Folk, Chris Johnson, Dee Milliner, Calvin Pace, Calvin Pryor, Sheldon Richardson, Geno Smith, Michael Vick, Kyle Wilson and Mangold. The fashion show augmented the main attraction of the event: the sampling of food and drink from twenty of the best restaurants in the New York/New Jersey area.
