If you are always in the market to score free food, or you're still riding the wave of the U.S. Women's Olympic Hockey Team winning a gold medal over Canada, then tomorrow is your day to shine -- Chipotle is giving away free food to hockey fans on Friday, March 2!
The 11th annual Hockey Weekend Across America is being celebrated March 2-4 with specific themes for each day. Friday is Wear Your Favorite Hockey Jersey Day; Saturday is Try Hockey Day; and Sunday is Celebrate Local Hockey Heroes Day. As an official sponsor of USA Hockey, Chipotle teamed up with the organization to offer a buy one, get one free deal (good for one free burrito, bowl, salad or taco per individual) to anyone wearing a Hockey jersey between 10: 45 a.m. and 10 p.m. on March 2.
Ok, fine.... you can technically wear any Hockey jersey you like and the good people of Chipotle will still let you in on the deal. But WE think you should get in the home team spirit and don that Ovi/Oshe/Backstrom jersey already!
If you are looking to celebrate the weekend locally, The Washington Capitals encourage fans to find the closest participating rink on Saturday and give the sport a try! You can find a rink here.
Started in 2008 by USA Hockey, HWAA is an effort to celebrate the game of hockey and those involved at all levels and also expose the game to new audiences.
