Oh good. Just what sporting events need - more drunks. Letting people drink themselves into alcoholic stupors is totally responsible, and not at all going to affect the quality of the game for those unfortunate enough to be seated near these people.

The question is not how much the average fan can/will drink, but rather, how can we get the Blues out there?

Since the tent is outside I would assume that most of the folks coming for the beer special aren't necessarily attending the game. Either way, at least it will bring people to a hockey game in Florida.

It's one thing to have a good time but getting your money's worth for $35.00 is a lot of f***in beer and then how do the assholes get home?
Whoever dreamed up thisf****** nightmare ought to have to provide transportation for the idiots that drink themselves into a stupor.

Yeah, no. Say puck drop is 7:30 p.m. That means from 4:30 to 7:30 you can sit in the parking lot and drink until you can't tell colors from shapes anymore. How are you going to get any enjoyment out of the hockey game if you're so drunk your blood qualifies as a cocktail? As someone else alluded to, how are you supposed to get home? You're not going to be dead sober by the time the game ends, so you can't drive anywhere.

I don't drink, and have family reasons for why that is, but I don't have anything against someone who has a beer or two at the game, or at a concert, or at a restaurant....whatever. It's people who drink until they're falling down drunk that I don't like, because they're invariably seated near me, and not only do I have to hear them, I have to smell them, and that takes away from my ability to enjoy myself, and that's not taking into account everyone else around him/her either.

If you think drinking until you can't stand up qualifies as a good time, that's kind of sad.

It's Coors attempt at a craft brew. It's a Belgium white. It's decent if you don't know where to find actual Belgium whites.

Just to say, there's plenty of us who could find a "$35 all you can drink" and make it finacially responsible *and* not aren't drunken messes in public. 35 bucks at $5 a beer = 7 beers. Even if those are 12 full ounces (doubtfully) that's not that much to people who regularly consume alcohol responsibily. Hell, I've had 8 or 9 pints of beer today (Happy St Paddy's Day to all!) and you don't even have to smell me.

At a Canucks game beer is like 7 to 8 bucks a beer. I'm pretty sure I could have my $35 bucks worth and be totally fine in 3.5 hours.

Also to assume everyone will binge drink is a bit harsh and unfair don't you think.

As for how to get home, taxi, public transit, designated driver to name a few.

You can drink responsibly and have fun, don't make it sound like you can't.

I think you are just reaching for reasons to complain about it with this one, lol. We can make the same complaint about men & women who wear so much perfume/cologne that they smell like a cheap whorehouse. (which is a LOT of them, I think it must be one of those things where they are so used to it that they don't realize how much they reak)

You win the thread.

It's not likely going to be an all you can drink buffet. I'm sure once the tender sees you are plastered they'll stop giving you beer. Plus I don't know a single person who goes to a hockey game alone, they'll have a DD.

I don't like people who pile on cologne or perfume, either. It gives me a horrible headache. However, the smell of alcohol nauseates me. So if someone sitting around me reeks of it, I'm going to vomit.

Nothing says 'Im a Beer Drinker' like drunks swilling beer with full slices of orange floating in their pint glass!
