The All-Star Game is coming to Columbus! To celebrate a once in a generation event, The Union Blue and Buckeye State Hockey have partnered to bring you a slate of activities to celebrate the CBJ blog / social media community. We’re excited to invite each of you to join us for any and all of the following!
Wednesday, January 21, from 4:45 – 5:30 we will have EXCLUSIVE access to the outdoor rink on McPherson Square as part of the Winter Park. For $5 you can join us. We’ll have sticks and pucks too to play around with – if there’s interest in getting a mini skills competition together, we’d love to hear that from you too!
After enjoying the outdoor ice, we’ll move indoors to enjoy a great meal at Rodizio Grill and then move to a location that we’re working on to watch the CBJ game (the boys play at Winnipeg that night).
Friday evening we will be hosting an event in conjunction with Puck Daddy at Bernard’s Tavern in the Short North. This event will run from 6-10 on the 23rd:
Happy Hour prices will run from 6-8 at the bar including half price beer (bottle or draft) and $2.25 well drinks. From 8-10 they will be running a special including $3 bud light draft, $4 Jack Daniel’s Honey, $4 Jagermeister and $4 3 Olive products.
We want to have a fun, safe environment for those visiting us. This cocktail hour will let writers, bloggers and fans alike intermingle and talk about the sport we all love, hockey.
While Friday is more set in stone, over the coming weeks we should be getting more information on our Saturday event. In addition to Columbus hosting the All Star game we would like to give back to the community as well. We are currently looking for a venue to host a service event. We are speaking to multiple venues and expect an announcement in the days to come regarding the location.
Hopefully this provides a little something for everyone – and we want to hear from YOU!
So if you want to join us – please RSVP via this quick survey. There’s also a place for you to ask questions, provide feedback, let us know what else might be fun.
Let’s show the hockey community how fantastic the CBJ fan and blog community really is!
We look forward to it!
~Your friends at Buckeye State Hockey and The Union Blue
