Unlike its equally icy cousin figure skating, hockey requires less formal perfection and uses sequins only in moderation. Take in naturally dazzling gameplay with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two Metro Marauders tickets, one hat, two Molson products, and 15% off at Celtic Corner Pub (up to a $42 total value). Head over to the Dartmouth Sportsplex—home of the happy Junior A hockey franchise—and choose from three home games:
- Metro Marauders vs. the Truro Bearcats on December 17, 2010 at 7 p.m.
- Metro Marauders vs. the Yarmouth Jr. A Mariners on December 19, 2010 at 1 p.m.
- Metro Marauders vs. the Weeks Crushers on January 8, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.
Their heads kept toasty by a complimentary hat and their vision and judgment potentially heightened by a pair of Molson beer goggles, fans can enjoy the game all the more as the Marauders' troupe of expert ice sculptors shave the rink into a veritable victory swan. After the game, don a kilt and some semi-permanent plaid hair dye and head over to the nearby Celtic Corner pub for 15 per cent off grub. With traditional maritime music, Irish beers at the ready, and regular open mic nights, the Celtic Corner is the perfect place for rehashing favourite plays, as well as shouting obscenities deemed unsuitable for the genteel, hockey-going crowd.
