Arizona Cardinals to hold NFL Draft party for 1st round; what your draft plans? [open thread]

Will you join other Cardinals fans, or will you be watching elsewhere?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday, April 25, the Arizona Cardinals 2013 Draft Party, presented by Valley Chevy Dealers, will take place on the Great Lawn at Sportsman's Park outside University of Phoenix Stadium from 4:00-9:00 p.m.

Fans will have the opportunity to meet Cardinals players, team mascot Big Red and have the first chance to see the 2013 Cardinals Cheerleaders while watching live NFL Network coverage of the draft on two giant video boards.

In conjunction with the third annual Big Red Rib & Music Festival, award-winning BBQ from eight national rib cookers along with beverages will be available for purchase. Cardinals merchandise, including 2013 draft hats, will also be available for purchase.

Admission and parking are free. The Great Lawn opens at 4:00 p.m., the Cardinals Cheerleaders perform at 4:30 p.m. and the draft begins at 5:00 p.m. Chad Freeman and Redline will perform on the main stage at approximately 7:30 p.m.

An interactive photo booth and kids zone, featuring inflatables, face painters and balloon twisters, will be provided.

That is the team's press release.

It sounds like it would be a great time, but what are your plans to pay attention to the NFL Draft? Are you making an event of it, or are you just going to follow it while you do other stuff?

Does anyone get together with friends for a BBQ?

How many of you do drinking games for the draft?

How about friendly wagers?

What exactly do you do for the NFL Draft?
