Friday nights are killers: Try to take the spouse and kids out for a night on the town and some family fun, and you may as well take out a second mortgage. But the latest promotion from the Idaho Steelheads--you know, the other sports team in town--has definitely caught our attention, given limited disposable income.
It's something called 4 for $46 Family Fun Fridays and here's the scoop: purchase four (or even more) tickets to any Friday night home face-off at CenturyLink Arena for $11.50 each and everybody gets a Double R Ranch hotdog and a Pepsi. Try and beat that at the movies, a concert or just about anywhere else.
The Steelies are in town Friday, Nov. 8 to stare down their longtime rivals, the Alaska Aces. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the puck drops at 7:10 p.m. Future Friday night home games are slated for Nov. 29, Dec. 6 and Dec. 13; and in 2014 on Jan. 17, Feb. 7 and Feb. 14, March 7 and April 4.
A bonus attraction is appearances by the Mighty Mites. Each Friday night, these pint-sized, all-star kids take over the ice during the game's first intermission. They're so fun to watch, that you may have to delay that restroom break and miss the first minutes of the second period of play.
