The Chicago Blackhawks excite fans and frustrate opponents with their precise shooting, nimble skating, and clever dekes. Today’s deal ushers fans to 300-level seats, where they can catch stray pucks and hopelessly lost penguins as they cheer the team along to surpassing its formidable record of success. Last season, center Jonathan Toews led the squad with eight game-winning goals and set a personal record with 32 goals and 44 assists over 80 regular-season games, building upon his already considerable reputation as the fastest igloo builder in the NHL.
Thanks to the party-planning prowess of National Event Partners, Groupon holders score admission to a pregame Blackhawks celebration at Galleria Marchetti. Starting 90 minutes before the game, guests can imbibe premium liquors and select craft brews at an open bar and graze on a buffet that typically includes items such as sliders, salads, pasta, and prime rib carved in the shape of a sieve. A band gets fans in the mood to cheer with a rousing live set, and high-end shuttles will whisk fans to the United Center before the puck drops. After an all-you-can-cheer-at display of slapshots and fisticuffs, the same shuttles will whisk fans back to the bar.
