Phoenix Coyotes night

Well, a fellow running friend of mine works for Godaddy and emailed me if I would like some tickets to the hockey game last night. I accepted them and took Benjamin and Kimberly, Nicholas was feeling under the weather, so he did not go. We stopped by where she was running with some other runners that I know and she gave us the tickets and even a parking pass to the garage. We got there a couple of minutes late, but I figured with a 3 year old, who knows how long we will even be there.
We ended up parking in the second parking space from the entrance and were directed to the elevator to our "Suite", we got to the box suite and we were the only ones there. It is a private suite for 18 people and it turned out to be just 9 of us there (seven runners and my two kids). They even delivered three pizzas popcorn, and pretzels. Oh yea, free non-alcohol drinks. The two kids had a great time watching the game and climbing over the chairs and eating. The box turned out to be at the center ice, so I can say that I had one great evening with some Friends and kids.
Oh, yea near the end of the evening they brought our bill for us to sign. As my friend signed it for the company, we learned that each of the two cheese pizzas were $30.00 each and the Peperoni was $35.00. The picture of the two containers of popcorn and pretzels was $25.00 for each of the popcorn and $20.00 for the pretzels. We did not even see the bill for the soda and water. It was very appreciated what the company did for their employees. The nice thing about this is that the arena is on the far west side of town by my house and the company is in the east side of town, so a lot of employees do not even bother with going to the games.

Wow, what a great treat for you and the kids! Very cool to see the game from a suite. You didn't even mention that the Coyotes actualy won the game, too.

Free for you, right? Cool.

We got box suite tickets sometimes for things around here, but there is NO food provided, but hey - I'm not complaining. It's still free for us.

I'm in a similar but different boat to you. I'm unhappy and need to find a new job whereas you need to find another one within a year. Good luck cause I surely do ;-)
