Since their surprise appearance at this year’s MTV VMAs, famously held at Newark’s Prudential Center, *NSYNC has been everywhere. Of course, everywhere is really nowhere if Hoboken isn’t involved, and it seems at least one member of the iconic 90s/2000s boy band understands this truth. On October 5th, *NSYNC vocalist, reality TV host, and Dancing With the Stars competitor Joey Fatone will visit the Mile Square for a snack-filled tailgate event at Wicked Wolf. Hosted by Heluva Good! Dips, the “No Team Required” tailgate food tour will bring a night of dip samplings, food pairings, and 1/5 of *NSYNC to 120 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken. Read on for details surrounding this upcoming Hoboken foodie event involving *NSYNC member Joey Fatone.

On Thursday, October 5th, Heluva Good! Dips, an American food company specializing in chip dips, condiments, and cheeses, is bringing its “No Team Required” tailgate food tour to Wicked Wolf in Hoboken. The event will feature dip samplings, food pairings, and raffles, with the chance to win some prizes, including free dip coupons and gift cards. For every person who attends the event, Heluva Good! will donate $25 to local Feeding America food banks.
Now, for those wondering: what does this have to do with the paramount boyband of the late 1990s that, to the excitement of millennials everywhere, recently announced their reunion tour? Well, exactly 1/5 of *NSYNC is attending the Heluva Good! Dips “No Team Required” tailgate at Wicked Wolf. Joey Fatone, who sang/sings baritone for the band, will be in Hoboken on October 5th, taste-testing various dips among other hungry Hoboken locals.
In the years between *NSYNC’s dissolution and 2023 reunion, Joey has made numerous television and movie appearances including the My Big Fat Greek Wedding franchise and ABC’s Dancing with The Stars. As an NSYNC member, Joey was known for his bold fashion choices — always perfectly coordinated with his bandmates — and even bolder dance moves. No word yet if he will rock the ubiquitous frosted tips that were on every male pop star of the era.
The Heluva Good! Dips “No Team Required” tailgate takes place on Thursday, October 5th, from 4PM – 10PM at Wicked Wolf in Hoboken. Joey will be there from 4PM-6PM, and the meet + greet and photo opportunity is first-come, first-serve. You can find more event details here.
