Vikings QB Kirk Cousins To Prepare And Serve Food At Tostitos Super Bowl Pop-Up



Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins will be in Las Vegas to work a shift at the Tost by Tostitos pop-up restaurant during Super Bowl weekend, preparing food and serving guests.
I never thought I’d get to add Las Vegas chef and server to my resume, so I’m excited to close out the football season by swapping my helmet for a chef’s hat thanks to Tostitos, Cousins said in a statement. On the field, I constantly have to think on my feet and make quick game-time decisions, so I feel ready to bring those skills to the chef’s table at Tost by Tostitos and give guests a meal they won’t forget.
One lucky fan will get a full VIP experience, including travel and accommodations to Las Vegas, two tickets to Super Bowl LVIII and a reservation at Tost by Tostitos with tableside service by Cousins.
Tostios said the date and time of Cousins’ shift at the pop-up restaurant, which will be open for lunch and dinner between Feb. 8 and Feb. 10 from 12–9 p.m., will be known only to the VIP winner. Fans lucky enough to get a reservation during his mystery shift will get to see Cousins in action.
To win, fans must follow @Tostitos on Instagram, like the collaboration post between Tostitos and Cousins and comment which game day dish they’d like prepared and served by Cousins using #TostbyTostitos and #Entry on the post.
Tostitos is dedicated to giving fans the ultimate game day snack and this year’s Tost by Tostitos pop-up will encapsulate all that Vegas has to offer, said Kristin Kroepfl, vice president of marketing at Frito-Lay.
