Another Great Minors Promotion

website_frontMy favorite minor league hockey team, the Las Vegas Wranglers — who we previously celebrated for their Rod Blagojevich Night — are at it again with a promotion sure to bring in the crowds. On Tuesday the ECHL team will host an adult-themed “Over 18 Night.”

In attendance in the stands will be members of the American Storm, an all-male strip revue normally at the V Theater in the Planet Holleywood Casino. As well, there were be instructors from the casino’s Stripper 101 class, there to teach all the lady hockey fans how to lap dance their way to home happiness; the instructors will also be doing an “interactive performance in the bar area.”

Even better–as if male strippers and lap dances aren’t enough–for only $20 there will be an open bar from 7:30 to 9:05 featuring Russian Standard vodka, Crown Royal, Tommy Bahama rum, Bombay Sapphire gin and Patron Silver tequila. Yum!

According to the team, fans under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a guardian as “Programming may contain elements found in R-Rated motion pictures including language and/or mild adult content.” Elements like in an R-rated movie? YES! Count me in!

The impetus for this wonderful promotion? A night the team’s president and owner spent at a bar together, where the idea eventually was preserved on a cocktail napkin. I’d expect nothing less for such a classy affair.

What, No Hair Helmets?

I could have just combined this with the Canadiens awful jerseys, but I actually LIKE this idea so it gets its own post. As ever, the world of minor league sports continues to entertain with their creative and fun promotional evenings, this time courtesy of Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL.

The home Wranglers dressed in prison stripe uniforms, their opponents, the Bakersfield Condors dressed in prison orange jumpsuits and even the refs got involved dressing in warden uniforms, all to celebrate “Governor Rod Blagojevich Prison Uniform Night.” To add to the fun of the evening, the Wranglers even arranged for a judge (who vaguely looks like Kelsey Grammar) to sit rink side, powdered wig and all. I never knew you could get the refs to dress up for retro nights too, but I like it.
