Florida State Seminoles May Make Appearance at Brother Jimmy's BBQ Before Orange Bowl

The 2013 Discover Orange Bowl, Miami's first exciting event of the year,

pits the Northern Illinois Huskies against the Florida State Seminoles

tonight at 8:30 p.m.

It promises to be a great game, with the 'Noles on a mission to claim

victory for Florida and win their first BCS game since the 1999 national championships. Tickets are still available, starting at $225 each...or you can head over to Brother Jimmy's BBQ , starting at 11 a.m., to hunker down and watch all the bowl games on their 36  televisions while chowing down on some ribs and downing a few beers...and you may be rewarded with a game-day surprise.

Though it's not yet confirmed, there's talk that the Seminoles may pop in to Brother Jimmy's BBQ for a pre-game meal around 4:30 p.m., staying at the restaurant for about an hour before boarding their bus to the stadium. Now that's the ultimate Orange Bowl fan experience, right there!

Brother Jimmy's knows you may have started 2013 with the first hangover of the new year, so they're making your day a little less painful by offering a free Bloody Mary to anyone who shows up in sweats!
