The Tampa Bay Lightning announced today that it will host several watch parties at various Bay Area locations for fans to support the team during its run in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Brick House Tavern + Tap, located at 1102 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. in Tampa, will serve as this year’s official watch party location, with additional watch parties set to be held at other local eateries and pubs throughout Tampa Bay.
This season the Lightning have teamed up with their official watch party partner, Bud Light, to bring all the action of Lightning playoff hockey to fans, as well as a number of great offers throughout the playoffs including free merchandise to be distributed on-site by the Bud Light Girls. There will also be drink specials on all Anheuser-Busch products at each watch party throughout the postseason.
Bacardi, a valued sponsor of both the Lightning and the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, will also be on hand during the playoffs and will provide Lightning Lemonade souvenir cups to each watch party location for fans to take home as a commemorative keepsake of the team’s 2011 playoff run. The Bacardi Girls will also distribute samples of Lightning Lemonade and giveaway items to all watch party patrons and will be present in front of Shots, located on the west plaza at the St. Pete Times Forum, prior to Lightning home playoff games through the first two rounds.
