Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb will have his jersey retired one month from today when the Eagles host Andy Reid and the Chiefs for a Thursday night game.

While the Linc will certainly be loud, boisterous, rowdy - and a whole list of words that describe what happens when a polarizing figure is honored in front of 65,000 (mostly drunk) fans. But the party won't end there, at least for No. 5.

McNabb will be hosting an after party at Savoy Night Club and Entertainment Complex in Pennsauken, New Jersey, and keeping in line with the quarterback's age, it includes an early bird special.

If you arrive between 7-10 p.m., you will be able to get in for free. From 10-11 p.m., there is a $10 cover charge, which jumps to $20 after that.

Because Pennsauken is the new South Beach, there will also be bottle service, with prices ranging anywhere from $125 for a bottle of Belaire Rosé to $600 for a bottle of Crystal.

According to the event listing, McNabb and other "VIP guests" will be arriving after the game, and there will be a souvenir giveaway for the first 200 people to arrive.

While I joke about this, it actually seems like a good deal if you plan to go somewhere and watch the game. You'll get in for free, have a chance a free souvenir, and if you're a really big McNabb fan, you may even get to meet him following the game.

You either love Donovan McNabb or you hate Donovan McNabb. The only question I have is whether or not they'll screen people to see if they're McNabb fans before allowing entry. If not, things could get ugly around 2:30 a.m.

That alone has potential to be worth the price of admission...
