Taste of the Timberwolves with Ricky Rubio and UNION

Posted on

Ricky Rubio spent some quality time hanging out at the UNION Restaurant Minneapolis table at the Taste of the Timberwolves on February 7th, 2013! Watch for yourself.

UNION Restaurant made our first appearance at the Taste of the Timberwolves event last night. This annual gala is the Minnesota Timberwolves’ primary fundraiser for the FastBreak Foundation, which provides and supports hands-on programs that positively influence Minnesota youth. UNION Restaurant was proud to show our support and be part of such a spectacular evening for the very first time.

Dante Cunningham - UNION Restaurant MinneapolisThe Target Center was transformed into a an elegant environment filled with dressed up season ticket holders, corporate partners, and eager fans excited to interact with their favorite players. UNION was in the good company of other fine Twin Cities restaurants showcasing the food that best represents them. As Ricky Rubio attempted to say in the video above, we served smoked rainbow trout with roe and smoked crème fraîche on a potato crisp – it was absolutely delectable!

In addition to having to Ricky Rubio grace us with his presence, Dante Cunningham and Brandon Roy also joined us at the UNION table. Guests were given the opportunity to take photographs with their favorite players, get autographs, and bid on live and silent auction items ranging from merchandise to unique experiences!

The evening ended with the Timberwolves player’s competing on stage against one another in a game of “Timberwolves Pyramid.” Watching the players giving back to the community while mingling with their fans was very rewarding, and we look forward to our continued partnership with the Minnesota Timberwolves!
