Tonight, the Jets square off with the Anaheim Ducks, and while some Winnipeggers may be fans of the Ducks – tonight, we’re rooting for the home team. It didn’t take long for fans to snap playoff tickets – rumour has it that 1,000 were available and they sold out in mere seconds. So if you don’t have tickets like me, here’s a list of places to watch the Jets hit the ice – you just need to #finditdowntown! Snap a photo of you watching the game downtown, use the hashtag #finditdowntown, and I’ll enter you in for a chance to win a beer button for you to pour your own beer at Carbone!
Enjoy live music on a spacious patio before every home game. Test your hockey skills with a street hockey tournament. Or if you’re anything like me, you’ll just want to enjoy Carbone’s #WhiteOut drink and pizza features – we’re talking $2 off white sangria, white grape cosmos, Shock Top, and their New White pizza! Yum! And get this, during every away game, you can literally drink your way into free pizza – any amount spent on draft beer will be credited to your pizza bill. I’m OK with this. Oh yeah, the game will be screened on all of Carbone’s TV screens.
How does a $15 Jets burger with any domestic draft sound? Eat your face off (get it, face-off?) while enjoying the game on Shannon’s HD projection screen.
