INDIANAPOLIS — Historic Union Station now is NFL House,
a high-end stop for VIP Super Bowl guests. League employees had the chance to check out the digs Wednesday night.
Stepping in off Illinois Street, just south of Super Bowl Village, we were greeted by an impressive sight — a massive, two-story grand hall with stained-glass windows, luxury furniture and, of course, plenty of food stations and bars (former NFL player Tony Siragusa reportedly was pouring drinks for folks earlier in the evening). NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and other league personnel stopped in, shook hands and enjoyed themselves.
With Thursday comes an increased roster of parties, as more and more people pour into Circle City. Parties (most with big-name sponsors and hefty cover charges) are popping up everywhere, giving fans the chance to rub elbows with celebrities. It’s all part of the Super Bowl experience that seems to burgeon each year.
