The fourth game of the 2018-19 Hurricanes Homegrown Series is Friday, Jan. 11, when the Carolina Hurricanes host the Buffalo Sabres in the second half of a back-to-back set.
Refined for its third season, the Hurricanes Homegrown Series features six games that showcase the best our local community has to offer in t-shirts, food, beer, art and music.
Here's an in-depth look at each Homegrown aspect for Friday night at PNC Arena.
Oak City Collection designed and produced this North Carolina-centric t-shirt. When doors open at 6 p.m., 250 of these shirts will be available at the north end location of The Eye team store (section 112). Each $30 shirt is marked by a unique printed tag that denotes the game and shirt series, and there is a limit of two shirts per person per purchase.
The featured in-house, signature entrée is a Carolina fried pork chop sandwich: a 6 oz. pork chop topped with sweet, sauteed onions, served on a house-made kaiser roll and paired with tater tots. You can get this for $11 at the section 109 concessions stand (where all Homegrown entrées are available this season).
The featured in-house, signature dessert is banana pudding: warm banana pudding with wafers and meringue topping. This classic treat is available for $8 at the Homegrown Series dessert cart at section 111.
Flights, featuring four six-ounce pours, of Deep River Brewing Co.'s beer will be available at section 102. You can select any combinations of the brews they offer, and the flights are priced at $13.
This poster, designed by local artist Mike Inscho, will be available free to the first 1,000 fans. Swing by section 108 to pick one up and chat with the artist, as well.
Frontside, a local progressive pop-punk band, will perform live during the first and second intermissions.
