The Pro Bowl is always a pretty big event here in Hawaii. While we of course can’t wait for the game itself, oftentimes most of the fun comes from meeting the players and attending one or more of the different Pro Bowl parties that go down before the actual game. While past ears have brought more stars, 2012 still has its fair share of great Pro Bowl parties to attend.
Check out some of the biggest Pro Bowl Parties going down before the 2012 Pro Bowl.
