Mellon Arena party picks up
As the Pittsburgh Penguins-New York Rangers playoff series shifts to New York, Penguins fans can watch Games 3 and 4, Tuesday and Thursday night on a video screen outside Mellon Arena (weather permitting). Game time is 7 p.m. for both games.Generally speaking, alcohol and the grilling of meat is encouraged at these sorts of things.
A 12x16 LED screen has been set up in front of the Gate 3 entrance, near the marquee. More than 2000 fans were on hand to watch Games 1 and 2 of the second-round series against New York.
With interest in the team soaring, the Penguins are trying to accommodate fans in as many ways as possible. For safety reasons, the team asks fans not to bring grills or tents to the Gate 3 area. Also, alcohol is prohibited.>> team release
If the Pens make the finals, I'll be in Pittsburgh with The Pensblog and Empty Netters for the outdoor party.
