CHARLESTON, SC (April 24, 2013) – Former Marshall wide receiver and NFL hopeful, Aaron Dobson, will watch the NFL draft at the Recovery Sports Grill in downtown Charleston tomorrow.
The Recovery Sports Grill, located at 600 Virginia St. E.—in the same building as the Ramada Charleston House—will host an NFL draft party tomorrow beginning at 6 p.m. Dobson, who is projected to be a top-100 pick, will arrive at the restaurant around 7:30 p.m.
The West Virginia native played high school ball at South Charleston High School, before having a standout college career at Marshall University. Dobson is widely considered the Thundering Herd’s top prospect as receiver since Randy Moss was drafted in the first round by the Minnesota Vikings in 1998.
Fans are encouraged to come out to support Dobson, as well as West Virginia University hopefuls Geno Smith and Tavon Austin. The restaurant will offer beer specials and 50 cent wings throughout the night.
The Recovery Sports Grill is an ardent supporter of local sports teams, high schools, and colleges, with the restaurant’s décor giving a strong nod to local favorites West Virginia University and Marshall University.
The Recovery Sports Grill is a sports-themed restaurant group founded in 2007 as the Recovery Room Sports Grill: a single location across from the Albany Medical Center in Albany, N.Y. The independently owned and operated company is a division of the Albany, N.Y.-based BBL Family of Companies, which includes the Charleston-based contracting firm BBL Carlton, who was responsible for the restaurant construction.
In 2011 BBL Hospitality purchased the Ramada Charleston House on Kanawha Blvd. The hotel is currently being renovated by BBL Carlton, with plans to turn the property into a Four Points by Sheraton.
