Gronkowski and friends were at Miami club E11even on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday, he was seen at Bodega Taqueria y Tequila "downing tacos and spreading the word." The Gronk Beach Party will "feature open bars, tons of food, and performances by top artists" including DIPLO, KASKADE, FLO RIDA, CARNAGE and Rick Ross (N.Y. POST, 1/29). Meanwhile, Gronkowski appeared on CNBC Friday to discuss balancing his personal image with taking sponsorship money from those who may not align with his values. Gronkowski said, "It gets a little too hectic. I was young and at that age, you really don't know when you are in your 20s. You're just trying to take it in for the money and that's not what it's all about. You've got to learn those values. You've got to learn those lessons. I just want to stick to things that I truly believe in" ("Worldwide Exchange," CNBC, 1/31).
