Today marks the 110th day of the National Hockey League (NHL) lockout. More than half of the regular—625 games—have been cancelled through January 14th. Fans are bored. Businesses are hurting. Long story short, hockey is missed.
One local eatery has felt the pain over the NHL lockout and wants to bring the puck back into the lives of Bostonians. Ducali Pizzeria & Bar near the Garden is launching “Puck Nights” and inviting hockey fans from across the Hub to watch games on their big screen projector. The restaurant will be screening the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, as well as college hockey games and classic Bruins finals every Tuesday evening.
Guests are encouraged to indulge in Bruins’ hockey classics, cheer for their alma matter or get to know the international teams in the IIHF while enjoying craft beer and specialty pizzas from Ducali.
During Puck Nights, Ducali will be serving their special, award-winning lobster pizza. Wash it down with L’Olmaia La Nove beer from Italy, as Ducali is the only restaurant in Boston with that brew on tap.
So wash away your hockey sorrows at Ducali by screening your favorite Bobby Orr moments, noshing on lobster pizza and crossing your fingers that the lockout ends soon enough to salvage some of the season. Puck Nights run every Tuesday night at 7 p.m., beginning January 8th.
To get you in the hockey spirit, here are some photos of Bruins fans that probably miss the NHL season more than you.
