Stop By The Michael Jordan Food Pop-Up At The Giant Foot Locker In Hollywood This Weekend

Head over to Hollywood for some kicks and… food?

Never thought we’d hear the words Foot Locker and pop-up restaurant in the same sentence, but – welcome to 2019!

Sneakerheads and foodies alike can head over to the Avenue of Stars for a special weekend run of a branded partnership between the major shoe retailer, Nike’s Rivals, and Foodbest. The pop-up follows Nike’s release of the Air Jordan 1 Mid SE “Rivals” – a shoe that features each of the star NBA player’s former team colorways. More recently, Jordan released an accompanying Rivals clothing line featuring the same bold colorways and retro style!

To get access to Rivals Cafe, visitors will have to purchase a piece of merchandise from the collection before getting the privilege of ordering from the pop-up food menu. Pick a side when you select food items inspired by the iconic teams Michael Jordan played for or demolished (*cough cough* Lakers) during his reign in the league.

Choose from a Chicago-style hot dog made with chopped white onions, sweet pickle relish, dill pickle spears, tomato, short peppers, and mustard, all served on a poppy seed bun; or an LA Dirty Dog, crafted with grilled onions, peppers, charred jalapeƱo, mayo, mustard and ketchup! There will also be an LA French dip sandwich stacked with thinly sliced roast beef and a side of beef broth and the famed Chicago Italian Beef, with simmered beef, hot giardiniera, and sweet pepper to pick from.

Whatever you choose, hopefully it tastes as good and MJ’s vicitories circa ’96…

The pop-up will be on October 31 and run through November 3 from 5-9p Thursday-Saturday and 3-7p on Sunday.

Location: 6801 Hollywood Blvd Suite 147, Los Angeles, CA 90028. See it on Google maps.
