The night before the big game former NFL star and Live with Michael and Kelly Host Michael Strahan and FOX Sports personality Erin Andrews, hosted the VIP Third Annual Tequila Don Julio Sports & Entertainment dinner at the Audi Forum New Orleans. Andrews and Strahan were excited to come together with their close friends and family to trade opinions on the outcome of the Super Bowl, but the two were aligned on the 49ers as the expected victor.
Strahan also gave Andrews advice on how to mix up the perfect cocktail to enjoy for the Big Game, using his favorite spirit Tequila Don Julio 70 (cocktail included below). Andrews then said she needed to create her own signature “EA” cocktail to rival Strahan’s. Guests dined on a specialty three course dinner with Don Julio cocktail pairings and were relieved to take a moment from the busy weekend to enjoy an intimate, luxury gathering. Other guests in attendance at the dinner included Lil Jon, Gayle King, and Bill Simmons.

Following the dinner, the night progressed into the late night party at the Audi Forum where celebs partied late into the night where they enjoyed Tequila Don Julio bottle service and danced to Solange, Lil Jon and Diplo DJ sets.
Tidbits from the Audi Forum:
Sofia Vergara was chatting in the VIP and drinking Tequila Don Julio with friends.
Chase Crawford and Josh Hutcherson holding court in the VIP with friends, but Josh (very casually dressed in a trucker hat and jeans) ended up on the dance floor dancing to Lil Jon and Diplo.
Stacy Keibler was dancing in the VIP area, but noticeably was avoiding her ex Geoff Stults.
Lil Jon and Diplo was spotted drinking 1942 as they did a surprise duel DJ sets.
Ryan Kwanten was drinking and toasting with 1942 with his Dad, both of whom noted that it’s their favorite tequila.
Scott Porter was the very last to leave the event since he was too busy singing and dancing with a friend, and the staff had to politely let him know the show was over.
Other celebrities in attendance included: Aaron Rogers, Aaron Paul, Jeremy Renner, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Kate Walsh, Ana Faris and Ashley Greene.
