NHL All Star Game Comes To Raleigh, North Carolina This Week-End

NHL All Star Game Comes To Raleigh, North Carolina This Week-End

Downtown Raleigh

I know, right!!! 

What has happened to the world when the NHL All Star Game is being held in a Southern Capital City like Raleigh?Well if you know any Caniacs, it will make perfect sense to you.

Caniacs are fans of the local NHL Franchisee the Carolina Hurricanes (get it?) and let me tell you these people are fanatical, as all fans should be. I don't know if it's the fact that there are so many transplants here from states up north like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts who all have a long hockey tradition. Oh! And Canada Or the fact that it is so new to people they have taken to their team with passion. The fact that the Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup in 2006 won't have hurt.Me and the Stanley Cup

Raleigh is a very popular city as is the whole Triangle and this weeks event will have a lot of people from all over the country checking it out. The first thing they will see if they fly into Raleigh is trees, once here they will experience a vibrant, cultural, youthful city with fantastic restaurants, bars, museums, parks.

Sports fans normally come in three shades here, light blue, dark blue and red.....and now red and black! Hotels are full, there are activities planned for the whole weekend, it should be a good time. The weather is looking nice too, which must play a small role in why they come here, a bit like the Super Bowl always (almost) being played in warm states. The golf courses will be open for business.

Speaking of ice and sports done on them, the US Figure Skating Championship just started in Greensboro this week also.

P.S. The barbecue is vinegar based, so when you get a BBQ sandwich, get the coleslaw on top it is the best way to have it....Y'all!
