The Washington Redskins have been criticized for their name in the past several years. A federal judge ordered the cancellation of the Redskins trademark registrations this past summer, because they insist that the name hurts native Americans.
While the Redskins have continued on, including winning the NFC East this past season, they’re opening a restaurant in Virginia. Hail Hog Kitchen and Tap is expected to open in late spring in the One Loudoun Downtown District.
Hail Hog will feature the Redskins, who are a three-time Super Bowl winning franchise and have had five championships since the organization was founded in 1932.
The team has its headquarters in Ashburn, Va., which is located in Loudoun County. It’s also been an integral part of the Washington, D.C. region since the team was founded.
One has to believe that Daniel Snyder is going to own this restaurant, as he also owns the team. Who will run it? That was not released at this time.
However, the name, the team says, is a homage to the history of the team. Their long-time anthem is “Hail to the Redskins,” which is also a tribute to its “Hogs” who were their famous offensive line in the 1980s and 1990s.
“The ability to connect with the community in a very real way through Hail Hog is a natural extension for us,” Terry Bateman, Redskins Executive Vice President, said. “We are excited to partner with g3 to create a first-class venue where Redskins fans can come together with friends and family and celebrate the team’s history.”
The restaurant will have more than 12,000 square feet and offer two levels with two distinct experiences for all ages. It’s going to feature a chef-driven menu and a bar that’s going to showcase cocktails, wine and craft beers.
All the products on its menu will be prepared fresh daily.
On the first floor of the restaurant, its going to have its own radio and television studio so that the Redskins can broadcast programming from the site. Also, when not in use, its also going to be reserved for small private events for those that are interested in purchasing the space.
The second floor will have its own entrance and will feature more items for the sports fanatics. It’s promising to have “wall-to-wall next generation 4K televisions, the viewing experience will be second to none.”
Hail Hog is the latest restaurant to join 3g Restaurants and their expanding portfolio.
“This is an awesome project for g3 Restaurants,” said Marc Buehler, President of g3 Restaurants. “We cannot wait to debut our chef-inspired American fare menu paired with awesome drinks in this really spectacular facility. We have gone to extraordinary lengths to tie the Redskins brand into this truly fan friendly one-of-a-kind experience.”
