Are you ready for some make-believe football? (No, we’re not talking about your fantasy draft.)

The Entertainment Software Association is in town to show off the latest installment of the incredibly addictive Madden NFL franchise, and wants to give Hill staffers a chance to get their game on Thursday.

The group has thrown together a “Back to Football” tailgate party taking place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hawk ‘n Dove. (329 Pennsylvania Ave. SE). Gaming fans just need to give a heads up to to score entrée.

Attendees will be able to demo the new game and are invited to hang afterward to watch “Thursday Night Football.”

Can’t make it tonight?

ESA will be on the Hill Friday morning, sharing its feedback about the job creation power of the video game industry with the E-TECH Caucus. That exchange is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building.
