Barstool Sports is hosting their inaugural Summer Hockey Fest in Hockey Town. The Barstool Sports Hockeyfest is coming to Detroit, MI.
That’s right, the city that has celebrated more Stanley Cup championships than any other city in the United States will be the site for this event.
Barstool Sports Hockeyfest
The event is being put on by Barstool Sports and their signature hockey podcast, Spittin’ Chiclets. The event will be sponsored by HockeyFest, Pink Whitney, Mattress Firm, and many local bars and restaurants. It will be a 3-on-3 plus a goalie street hockey tournament in a parking lot near Greek Town Casino. Greek Town is operated by Penn International Gaming, which also owns a large portion of Barstool Sports stock.
The Barstool Sports Summer Hockeyfest will take place on August 6th and 7th and will feature plenty of food, booze, and hockey. The games will feature two 15-minute halves separated by a two minute intermission. There will be no tolerance for fighting or excessive penalties, so if you are looking for a rough and rowdy type of game, this will not be the place.
This should be a very fun event, as Biz, Whit, RA, and Grinelli will all be in attendance. There may even be some former and current NHL players out there skating on a team.
