Type: Out On The Town, Sports
Planned By: Tash & Bobby
Hockey is not a huge sport in Cleveland, but we do have an American Hockey League team: The Lake Erie Monsters. When Bobby got four free tickets and Tasha invited us to go with them we were pretty excited for the chance to see them play. I had never been to a hockey game, and Adam only went one time when he was pretty little.
We met up with Tash & Bobby downtown and walked over to the Q. We found our seats which were pretty awesome - right near the ice by the goalie.
Fridays at the Monsters games are dollar dog and dollar soda night. We all made sure to take advantage of that perk. We enjoyed watching the game and found it to be quite intense. There were players being bashed in to the glass and a couple fights broke out - it was all very exciting. We also made it on the jumbo-tron a few times which ended up being a little embarrassing.
We didn't stay for the whole game because it was taking forever (there were some problem with the glass which caused delays) and also we were down by three with little hope to come back. The final score was 4-1 and Utica (where the hell is that?) won.
Despite leaving early, the game was a lot of fun and I would definitely go back.
While we were downtown we decided to go over to City Tap for a beer before leaving. Adam always likes to try new beers since they have so many on tap. He got the Revolution Anti Hero IPA and I got (surprise) Fat Head's Bumble Berry. Next, we met up with our friend Dave at the Clevelander for a drink. Then we went over to Lauren's for a couple hours just because we were nearby. Overall, it was a good night!
