Miami Dolphins Introduce New Food Options for 2014 Season

New vendors include local favorites recommended by fans

Miami, FL – The Miami Dolphins are adding new food options to enhance the fan experience at Sun Life Stadium; including Bokampers MVP Club, Bru’s Room Sports Grill, BurgerFi, Cold Stone Creamery, Cuban Guys, Michelle Bernstein’s Crumb on Parchment and Sushi Maki. Miami Dolphins & Sun Life Stadium President & CEO Tom Garfinkel asked fans this summer through social media which food options they would like to see on game day. Season Ticket Members and the public responded in overwhelming fashion. As a result, the Miami Dolphins have tapped these seven restaurants based on fan feedback, quality products, value, variety and their local brand in the South Florida market.

“We had a great response from fans about the food they wanted and went out to try to deliver many of their requests,” Dolphins President & CEO Tom Garfinkel said. “We’re excited to announce that these great brands will be at Sun Life Stadium this year and we look forward to bringing in more in the future. We want to have diverse, high-quality food at a reasonable value for our fans.”

Fans can now feast on a variety of options, starting with BurgerFi, available within Sun Life Stadium at Section 130. The menu includes mouthwatering BurgerFi Cheeseburgers, VegeFi Burgers Chicken Apple Dogs and Fresh Cut French Fries. In addition to game days, BurgerFi on September 2nd becomes the presenting sponsor of “The Finsiders” TV show, airing from 5 – 6 p.m. on Fox Sports Florida.

The Dolphins are pleased to announce alumnus Kim Bokamper and his restaurant Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill will have a signature space within Sun Life Stadium. Bokampers MVP Club, located on the 300 level just above the eastern end zone, provides air-conditioned comfort with great views of all the action on game day. The newly remodeled skybox features a menu of Bokampers favorites, including Bo’s Signature wings, smokehouse BBQ pulled pork sliders and tuna wontons. Fans enjoying the game from Bokampers MVP Skybox can sign up to become a Bokampers MVP member and enjoy the many perks both at the stadium and also when dining at any South Florida Bokampers locations.

The Dolphins named Cold Stone Creamery the official ice cream of the team. Fans beating the South Florida heat have plenty of Cold Stone locations within Sun Life Stadium on game day to visit, including three locations on the 100 level (Gates C, E and G), two on the BankUnited Club Level (Gates C and G), two on the 400 level (Gates C and G) as well as in the tailgate area prior to the game.

The Dolphins continue to support local alumni, and are ecstatic about a partnership with Bob “Bru” Brudzinski to feature a Bru’s Room Sports Grill at Section 154. The menu includes Bru’s Wings ($10), Bru’s Tenders ($11.50) and Bru’s Fries ($5). Catering to fans’ interest, the Dolphins also announced South Florida’s Cuban Guys will be offered at Section 425, serving a Cuban Sandwich ($10), Steak Sandwich ($10), Yucca Fries ($5), Stuffed Potatoes ($6) and Croquettes ($4). The team also has partnered with renowned Chef Michelle Bernstein, who will bring to life an outpost of her Design District café, Crumb on Parchment. The café is located on the BankUnited Club Level at 213, offering an artisanal selection of homemade sandwiches, salads and side dishes. In addition to Crumb on Parchment, Chef Bernstein will work with the team to create select dishes for the food offerings found in Dolphins Prime. In the Dolphins’ continuing efforts to diversify menu options, fans will find Sushi Maki at Section 241, with a menu including sushi ($12), sashimi ($15), Lo Mein noodles ($11) and skewered chicken or shrimp ($3).

These vendors add to the exceptional service and options already offered by Sun Life Stadium. The venue will continue to serve fan favorites such as Everglades BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich ($10) and Everglades BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos ($10), all made with its signature Everglades barbeque, which is cured, smoked and prepared fresh each week at Sun Life Stadium.

Def Leppard Will Play London's Dolphins vs. Raiders Game

Def Leppard will open the Dolphins vs. Raiders pre-game show in London. 

This will mark the first NFL International Series game of the 2014 season to be played on Sunday, September 28.  Gametime is 6pm London time, but with the time difference, the game will be televised in the USA at 1:00pm EDT.  

Lead singer Joe Elliott said: “Having most recently visited Wembley in May to watch Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final, I know what the atmosphere in the ground is like for ‘our’ football so I’m really looking forward to performing there before the NFL game and of course soaking up the excitement of the actual match. I can’t wait!”


Dolphins and Finatics Reboot for 2014

Hi Finatics,

As the 2014 Hall of Fame game is just hours away, excitement runs through my veins that REAL football is back again!

My first blog of 2014 is one of reflection and closure of our last season, and Finatic optimism, as the Dolphins reboot in big ways for 2014.

We have a new General Manager, a new Offensive Coach, a new Offensive Line, and the yearly strategic trades and movement of players. Finatic Dave in his last blog posted a nice summary of some of the moves, and just yesterday, the Finatic Nation was ecstatic to hear of Samson Satele joining the O-line in the much needed Center position.

Last season, our articles and opinions on this web site were infrequent and a little sporadic. I think the reason for this is our increased presence on Twitter and Facebook. Social media has become the best way to pass on timely news and events, especially live on game day. So like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest news that is Finatic.

Our mission here at Finatics.com is to provide an oasis of information that targets the tailgater. When we hear about the insider and special events surrounding each game, you will see it here. Also this year, expect special reports from some away games, notably Tampa Bay and London for starters.

The Finatics were in attendance at the first team practice open to the public yesterday at Sun Life Stadium. There are two big takeaways from yesterdays scrimmage.

1. The Defense looks great overall. Brent Grimes was stellar and the acquisition of Finnegan was a big move as the cornerbacks were in control for most of the day. The D-line was also credited with 5 sacks.

2. The first team offense looked very sharp and quick and kept everything vertical. I liked what I saw from Bill Lazor's playbook. Tannehill, Lamar Miller, and new rookie Jarvis Landry were stand outs at the practice. I can see good things with a healthy Wallace, Hartline and Landry lining up when the season starts.

The only downside to the whole day was the big drop off in tempo and talent when the second and third team was brought in. The key to success for this team in 2014 will be for our first team players to stay healthy and avoid injury. With the overhaul that we saw in the off-season, the supporting players in the depth chart will need to step it up. Hopefully the preseason will give them the needed game experience to do that. The support of the depth chart will move us in to the elite if they can deliver.

Next week, the Finatics will be at the Dolphins' training camp with another special report. For now, it's time to chill the beverages and put the feet up for a little Sunday Night Football.

Welcome back football, the Finatics are primed and ready for the season! Go Dolphins!
