Below are some additional details for tonight's post-game activities and some tips for those attending the festivities. Enjoy the game. Be safe. And as my Dad always tells me, "Make good decisions!" (Told you I was listening!)

Interested in the bar scene? Following the game, guests will have a few options including the Ledge Lounge, Arena Restaurant and Champion's Club on the second level and the Bud Light Deck on the first. 

Want to hear a live band? Head to the Arena Restaurant after the game to take in the music of the Coconut Groove Band.

Want to avoid the bar scene? Portions of the second-level seating bowl will be open. Fans regardless of their game ticket are welcome to sit and relax and take it all in. Click here for the entertainment schedule. Also, section 104 will be open...see next question for the scoop.

What is the plan for the magician? Magician Michael Creech will perform at the bottom of section 104 from 11:00-11:30. Fans will be invited to come down to section 104 to see the magic up-close. Creech enjoys interacting with the crowd and at times is known to need the assistance of audience members to help out.  This will also be shown on the video board and can be heard on the sound system.  Click here for a sample of Creech's work.

What is the Puck Drop? An annual tradition, we lower a puck from the RBC Center rafters.  In addition to the puck drop, live coverage will be shown on the video board of select New Year's Eve celebrations.

Will Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest, Carson Daly or Anderson Cooper be there? No, but Ron the Ref and Diane Ramsey from Mix 101.5 will check in from ice level from 11:30-12:00. They will help lead the count down and bring in the new year. 

Where can I see the fireworks? The best bet is going to be the front lawn of the RBC Center. You will have a bit of a view from the Arena Restaurant, but the clearest view is from the front. The show will last 8-10 minutes and will begin at 12:15 a.m.

I look forward to seeing everyone tonight. Happy New Year and best of luck on those resolutions!
