This weekend (Nov 6) the Icemen play their home opener against the South Carolina Stingrays and it’s the perfect opportunity to get your hockey fix!
A night of heavy hitting, puck chucking, fights-on-ice is just what the doctor ordered to start the holidays off right. Root on the team as the game heats up while enjoying the concessions and be sure to check out the theme nights (like Margarita Mondays) for some extra chill to your outing.
