Youngstown Phantoms Cold Zone Takeover & Downtown Bar Crawl April 4th!

Hello Friends. We are tired of Winter here at Drink Up Youngstown, so we're giving you something to look forward to in April:  A Meet-Up at the Youngstown Phantoms Game with beer or wine included in your ticket price, followed by our first ever Drink Up Youngstown Downtown Bar Crawl after the game.

Actual photo taken in the Cold Zone! Yep, you're that close.
$25 includes your ticket to the game and five 12-ounce beers
The Cumulus Media Coors Light Cold Zone at Covelli Centre is where they used to have the Bouncy House on the far end of the arena near where the Zamboni enters & exists the ice. On select Saturdays tickets are available for $25 including five 12-ounce beers or standard wine pours! Seats on the glass are $29.50, and you have to get your own beer! I've been there, the view can't be beat. You can see the entire ice surface, watch the benches and feel the puck rattle around the boards. Not to mention the bone-crunching body checks in the corner! And beer!

Then, when the game's over, we hit the streets of Youngstown for the first ever Drink Up Youngstown​ Bar Crawl at various Downtown drinking establishments with great specials for all who participate starting at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets for the Hockey Game & Bar Crawl purchased before March 14th, are $35 and include a ticket to the Phantoms Game in the Cold Zone (46 tickets are available per game), the first ever Drink Up Youngstown T-Shirt & a Wristband for Bar Crawl Specials all night.

Tickets for just the Bar Crawl purchased before March 14th are $12.50 and include the T-Shirt & Wristband. Bar Crawl specials will start at 9:30 p.m.

To order tickets for the The Cumulus Media Coors Light Cold Zone at Covelli Centre or just the Bar Crawl, hit me up via email!
