The fourth game of the Hurricanes Homegrown Series is Friday, as the Carolina Hurricanes play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in their only 7 p.m. Friday puck drop at home this season.
New this season, the Hurricanes Homegrown Series features eight games that showcase some of the best that our local community has to offer in clothing, beer, food, art and music.
Planning to spend your Friday night with the Canes at PNC Arena? Here's an in-depth look at each Homegrown aspect.
Oak City Collection designed and produced this t-shirt, which features an acorn adorned with both the Hurricanes primary logo and the downtown Raleigh skyline. When doors open at 6 p.m., 144 of these shirts will be available at The Eye's main location (south end of PNC Arena adjacent to the box office) for $30. Each shirt is marked by a unique printed tag that denotes the game, the shirt series and the overall quantity printed, and there is a limit of two shirts per person per purchase.
Flights, featuring four six-ounce pours, of Deep River Brewing Co.'s beer will be available at section 313. You can select any combinations of the brews they offer, and the flights are priced at $11.
The featured in-house, signature food item: North Carolina BBQ nachos. Chips, pulled pork BBQ and nacho cheese. Simple and delicious. You can grab these nachos for $9.25 ($10.25 if you want to add cole slaw) at the NC BBQ Co. carts around the building at sections 104, 123, 128, 306 and 325.
This poster, designed by local artist Jason Clary, will be available free to the first 1,000 fans. Swing by section 108 to pick one up and chat with Clary, as well.
