Biggest. ETS. Ever. Seriously? We had to count twice — 53 food trucks and street food vendors, every one tonight serving up an iconic dish from an NFL city. And since this one’s an official Pro Bowl event, that means you’ll be mingling with pro football stars, cheerleaders and mascots, and if you Instagram pics with the hashtag #eatthestreet, you’ll get a shot at an hourly prize plus a chance to win the grand prize: a free ticket to Sunday’s game.
But what is ETS about if not food? Tonight’s eats span the country like the biggest tailgate party ever. Think Buffalo Bills wings, New England Patriots clam chowder, Cincinnati Bengals chili, Pittsburgh Steelers pierogi, Green Bay Packers poutine, Oakland Raiders coconut cake. Plus the dishes you’ll see in the photo gallery below. From sea to shining sea.
Bring your cameras and get ready to snap your favorite team. See you in Kakaako tonight.
When: Friday, Jan. 25, from 4 to 9 p.m.
Where: 555 South St. in Kaka’ako (at Halekauwila, kitty-corner from Restaurant Row)
Parking: On-site and street parking

Paul's Poppers: St. Louis Rams crab rangoons
Yes, crab rangoons look like gau gee! And why is a Chinese appetizer with cream cheese and a Burmese name coming from St. Louis? Popular lore attributes its creation to the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904. Which does nothing to answer any of our other questions, but oh well.
True to the original, Paul's Poppers' crab rangoon is stuffed with cream cheese, imitation crab, onions, green onions and seasonings with a slightly spicy kick, all fried to melty goodness in wonton wrappers. Just like you'll find in St. Louis.
