Hello friends (and enemies… I can’t be sure who’s reading this). Once again, our beloved Carolina Hurricanes won’t be playing postseason hockey, which means this Saturday’s home game is the last one we’ll see for months. Don’t be sad though. We’re going to have a hell of a party to give this season the viking funeral it so desperately needs. Consider this your invitation to the Section 328 Tailgate. Details below.

When: Tailgate starts at 9:00a but come whenever you can. Jager pass is around 6:00p

Where: East lot grass of the PNC Arena. Look for the big sign on I40 if you’ve never been

Weather: Looking shitty, maybe even snow, but that doesn’t matter

What to expect: ALL OF THE FUN and perhaps even more food and drink.

Much like with the season opening tailgate, we’re happy to announce that our friends at New Belgium brewing will provide a goodly amount of beer. You’ll still want to BYOB as we anticipate a big crowd. In addition, the good people at Donatos are bringing a bunch of pizzas to share. We’ll also have more meats on the grill and side dishes for days.

We’re going to have a great time on Saturday, regardless of what mother nature has in store for us. We had well over 100 people on opening night, and we’d love to see even more on 4/7 as we say goodbye and kick rocks to the 2017-18 Carolina Hurricanes season!
