The NHL permanently altered its identity when it announced that Las Vegas would be home to the league’s 31st franchise. From the beginning, hockey fans knew that hockey out in Sin City would be a bit different. The Golden Knights proved that rather quickly by partnering with Cirque du Soleil (you may have heard of them) for their in-game entertainment. Now, in typical Vegas fashion, there will be a completely new twist on the all too familiar viewing parties.
Crazy Horse III, a local Vegas strip club, will host weekly viewing parties for Golden Knights fans. The “Hockey at the Horse” parties will feature some specials and the chance to watch the game on a 70-inch or 100-inch television. The word “chance” is used rather deliberately as hockey fans will have to decide on whether they’ll be watching the game or … other things at the strip club.
Here’s the announcement via Vegas News:
In celebration of the first professional team in Las Vegas, the Vegas Knights, the award-winning gentlemen’s club will unveil game day specials, including a “Bucks for Pucks” deal, offering $1 admission for any guests arriving via their own transportation.
During all NHL games, Crazy Horse III will offer $20 beer bucket specials. Throughout the season, guests with a game-day ticket stub to a home game will receive a complimentary drink. Sports fans can take in all the hockey action amidst the club’s massive 70-inch and 100-inch HD televisions.
As you might imagine, the Golden Knights and the NHL aren’t connected to the promotion in any way, shape or form, but that’s not very surprising. Maybe it should be a bit surprising after the team received plenty of heat for its ice-girl application which walked a thin line between in-game entertainment and something a bit more adult/racy.
“Hockey at the Horse” events are certainly a unique Vegas offering which we imagine some fans will want check out. Of course, we’re still betting those fans will be checking out something other than Golden Knights hockey.
