Bengals players aren't the only ones getting ready for the kickoff of the NFL season.
Fans are also conditioning to get into game-day shape. But instead of sprints and scrimmages, fans are perfecting their tailgating skills by lifting glasses and filling plates. Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is hosting a Tailgate Kickoff Party on Sunday.
Plenty of cold beer and grilled food will be on hand with free samples of both offered to Bengals fans. Attendees can also purchase a $5 season-long savings book with more than $100 in discounts to redeem at the restaurant throughout the fall. Plus, there will be giveaway prizes and a raffle for a team jersey.
Bengals legend Anthony Muñoz will be on hand. Muñoz became a starter in his rookie season and remained a fixture at left tackle for the Bengals for 13 seasons. He is considered one of the greatest offensive linemen in NFL history.
The Tailgate Kickoff Party will be held at from 1 - 4 p.m. at its Beechmont restaurant on Ohio Pike off I-275.
