Today’s side deal gets you one lower-level center-ice seat at an upcoming Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game. Choose from the following games:
- Sunday, Dec. 12 at 4 p.m. against the Texas Stars
- Sunday, Dec. 26 at 4 p.m. against the Lake Erie Monsters
An AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, the Grand Rapids Griffins gear up and get down on their home ice, which is lovingly surrounded by more than 12,000 seats in the Van Andel Arena. This year’s squad of cold-water cruisers is already proving their slap-shot chops, each hoping to become the newest name on the list of 110 Griffins to make the leap to the NHL. And while the 2010–2011 season skates along, the Griffins have been making their chilly mythological presence felt in the volatile North Division with record-setting games around the Thanksgiving holiday. Groupon buyers' choice of two games both land on Sunday Funday, where $1 Cole's breadsticks and soft drinks are served from 3 to 5 p.m. and there's an open-skate party after the game. After the Dec. 26 match, select Griffins players will also be hanging around to autograph shirts, programs, and loose teeth. To snag a seat for the competitive icecapades, simply select a desired matchup and arrive at the box office with a Groupon, a dream, and, if possible, a large yelling-cone.
