Nuggets fans have a fun chance to rub elbows with one of the team's brightest lights this Friday at Jake's Food & Spirits . Beginning at 7 p.m., JaVale McGee, his mother,Pamela , and other family members will host a party celebrating the relaunch of his website, JaValeMcGee.com . Co-hosted by the marketing firm Five Hype , the free event will serve food and drinks (paid for by the McGees) and will feature giveaways of Nuggets tickets, jerseys, shoes, and even a little art. [Note: Capacity at Jake's is only about 200, so best arrive early and/or RSVP to email@example.com.]
McGee's website already showcases the athletic talents and off-court antics (including various charitable endeavors) of one of the NBA's most entertaining goofballs . The new-and-improved site will add even more content, especially now that McGee will finally be playing big-time minutes this coming season. Included in our preview of the Nuggets' 2013-14 campaign—on newsstands in late-September—is discussion of how new coach Brian Shaw plans to increase the 7-footer's workload, to the long-awaited delight of fans. So head up to RiNo for a rare up-close look at one of the league's most riveting big men.
Details: Friday, September 20 at 7 p.m., Jakes Food & Spirits, 3800 Walnut St. Free admission. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
