It's no secret that Macy's is one of my favorite department stores. I've had nothing but great experiences shopping there, and working with the brand with collaborations for my blog. Over Super Bowl Weekend, Macy's went all out with End Zone events. They had so much stuff going on that I actually swung by their events twice. For their End Zone events, Macy's teamed up with Locker Room by Lids to create a one-of-a-kind experience at the entry to their Macy's Galleria store. The entire front section of the store had been turned into an NFL lover's dream (especially if you were an Atlanta Falcons or New England Patriots' fan) The middle section housed the customization section, where with any purchase you can have it embroidered with items to make it unique to you. On the left side of the station were all of the Atlanta Falcons team apparel, and to the right, all of the New England Patriots apparel. Seeing this massive display of team apparel made me even more sad that the Steelers' did not make it to the Super Bowl! It would have been so epic to have my home team represented throughout the city that I live in.
Each day of the End Zone events at Macy's they had a special guest appearance to sign autographs for customers who made a purchase of $50 or more. The first night, Football Hall of Famer, Jim Brown was on the scene for autographs, than Alyssa Milano, followed by Emmitt Smith on Saturday. Due to other Super Bowl related activities, I missed seeing Jim Brown and Alyssa Milano, but I was able to catch Emmitt Smith when I returned to the festivities on Saturday. On Thursday I did a lot of shopping. It's not every day that the Super Bowl comes to your city, so I wanted memorabilia. I bought several Super Bowl 51 shirts, and even had one of the hats that New Era sent to me embroidered with the Houston skyline/football emblem.

Did you get to swing by any of the Macy's End Zone events?
