Football Stars to Wait Tables at Quirk

Former 49er Michael Robinson and a few of his famous friends will pass the plates this spring.



Football players are often known for their grace and not just for how hard they can hit on the field. Let’s hope Richmond native, former San Francisco 49er and Super Bowl-winner Michael Robinson, along with the Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch, former running back for the Buffalo Bills and the Seahawks, bring some of that finesse when they tie on aprons at Maple & Pine to kick off Excel to Excellence’s seventh annual youth football camp weekend on May 20.

The Celebrity Waiter Experience, now in its second year, is one way to help bring attention to and help fund the program founded by Robinson. The non-contact football camp for boys and girls will take place at Varina High School the next day.

“In addition to dinner,” a press release from Quirk Hotel says, “attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a pre-event cocktail hour, live auction and post-dinner after-party on Quirk’s brand new rooftop lounge.”

And who can resist watching giant men balancing plates and holding delicate wine glasses in their enormous hands?
