We’ll be the first to admit it, we love a good Calgary Flames game – they bring our city together in the C of Red and we love the atmosphere in the ‘Dome when the first goal goes in. But we also love everything else that comes with the hockey – the jerseys, the pocket dawgs and the ‘Dome Foam of course. There is so much more happening in the ‘Dome than just a hockey game; every person is coming from a different neighbourhood, a different time in their life has different passions, but our city comes together as one to celebrate our team and the pride of our city. There is something magical about that, isn’t there?
Whether you only make it out to one game a season or have season tickets, each game experience you look forward to every aspect of the game. Do you love getting there early to watch the players warm up? Or are you an after-party goer and thrive on the high vibes after a win at the Dutton’s Canadian Lounge. There are so many extras that make the hockey game a full C of Red experience. Here are some ideas to make your next Flames game the best one yet.
HOCKEY HAPPY HOUR
Make it a full evening at the ‘Dome. Get to the game early and catch up with your buds over happy hour starting an hour and a half before puck drop. Score amazing $5 deals for a full hour before heading to your seats. We’re talking Bud and Bud Light, high balls, pizza, mac and cheese and more.
