Man, if we didn’t already have enough to be thankful for this weekend, the Vancouver Canucks bring you – the fan – FREE BEER.
…and now that the team has your attention, they’d like to remind you that they play their home opener this Saturday night.
But seriously, there’s free beer.
The Canucks have announced that all fans 19+ attending Saturday night’s season opener against the Edmonton Oilers will receive a complimentary Budweiser beer, OR a non-alcoholic beverage option. We’re not saying that’s enough to fill the rink….but hey, it can’t hurt.
The team also announced a few other new features for the 2017/18 season;
The Bacon Kiosk
New this year, the Canucks will have a kiosk dedicated entirely to bacon. Its name? Bacon. Now THAT’S aptly titled, huh?
25 Cent Lemonade
Fin’s Family Zone is a new addition to the concourse, featuring games, entertainment, 25 cent lemonade (“Hooray” says your budget) and kid-sized snacks.
Charity Meat Raffle
Whoa, what is this?…the Legion?? Billed as a ‘traditional Canadian meat raffle’, tickets will support the Canucks For Kids Fun, which is awesome.
Bigger 50/50 jackpot
The Canucks estimate that the jackpot could reach upwards of $100,000 for the home opener…and for the second straight year, fans at the rink OR at home can play the 50/50 online at PlayNow.com. That one holds a guaranteed jackpot of $5,000.
Oh, and did we mention…..FREE BEER?
