It’s going to be a wild weekend in Los Angeles in February, and all the stars are gearing up for the fun. O’Neal just announced his plan to host this iteration of Shaq’s Fun House, presented by FTX. The event is being described as, “part music festival and part carnival.”
Kicking off Friday February 11 at The Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall, Shaq’s Fun House will include a carnival, FTX ferris wheel, a 6-hour open bar, and A Taste of Los Angeles. A Taste is a dining experience that brings together the best flavors of the City of Angels, combined with the atmosphere of a tailgating party.
Music is also the name of the game, with artists such as Lil Wayne, Zedd and Diplo taking the stage to entertain guests. It’s a crypo-friendly event that includes Crypto Carnival prizing and a custom FTX flyaway to meet the main man himself, Shaq. In a statement, the Fun House team shares, “A true man of the people, this is the 4th year running that Shaquille will host the ultimate Friday
night event leading into football’s biggest game of the year. Shaq’s Fun House is Shaq’s personal live event platform that pairs an over-the-top VIP music festival with a larger-than-life carnival experience. Unlike other VIP experiences during Big Game Weekend, Shaq has created a one-of-a-kind event that is open to the public, allowing fans to partake in the fun. Shaq’s Fun House has attracted the biggest names in sports & entertainment solidifying itself as the ‘must attend event of Big Game Weekend with past attendees including Patrick Mahomes, Adam Levine, Rob Gronkowski, Jamie Foxx, Dak Prescott, Reggie Bush, and dozens of other stars.”
O’Neal adds, “It’s always great to come home to my favorite city, Los Angeles, and I couldn’t be more excited to kick-off the biggest weekend in sports with our most over-the-top edition of Shaq’s Fun House to date. With the help of my friends at FTX, get ready to see performances by Lil Wayne, Zedd, and Diplo, experience a full carnival, and enjoy a true taste of LA with food provided by some of the city’s best restaurants. Los Angeles, you have my word that Shaq’s Fun House presented by FTX will go down as our 4th championship we have won together!”
It’s not just Shaq bringing the fun – famed nightlife titans and hospitality pros behind the Wynn Nightlife team are bringing their A-game to the Super Bowl as well. Wynn Nightlife is bringing an exclusive experience to a dedicated VIP Mezzanine at Shaq’s Fun House. Hosted by Wynn’s beloved XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club, there will be VIP tables that include bottle service, a dedicated server, and the best views in the house. Because of their partnership and dedication to cryptocurrency, FTX is offering a 5% discount on VIP tables to those who pay with crypto.
While at Shaq’s Fun House you can also expect some of the best dining in the city. Guests will enjoy Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, Pink’s Hot Dogs, Diddy Riese, Meat District Butcher Craft Premium Burgers, Daring Foods Plant-Based Chicken, and Papa John’s Pizza.
VIP guests can also enjoy top-tier sushi from the legendary KazuNori: the Original Hand Roll bar. All guests will be welcome to enjoy the 6-hour open bar, and carnival foods including popcorn, cotton candy, funnel cakes plus more.
Super Bowl Weekend
Because of the COVID-19 surge and the rapid spread of variants like Delta and Omicron, there’s still some uncertainty around the way the Super Bowl will go down – but it’s time to get hyped. There’s just over a month to go before the champion teams take to the grid-iron and Los Angeles erupts in a festival-like celebration for three days.
Whether you’re planning to stay at home or head to your favorite tailgating location, make your plans now. If you’re traveling, plan ahead – travel delays become more likely the longer you wait to book. And if you’re staying home, it never hurts to stock up on tailgating favorites early – just in case things run in short supply. And if you’re in Los Angeles – you know where to go. Shaq’s Fun House is the place to be.
