Duck duck…JETS!

Party at Portage & Main when Jets got the wild card playoff spot! Photo c/o @xjmetro on Instagram.


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!

Carbone Coal Fired Pizza (260 St. Mary Ave.)

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.
