1 day 21.5 hours to go – Molson Canadian Hockey House Preview

February 10, 2010

When the Olympic Rendezvous @ Samsung ended I had time for a quick bite to eat at Ki-Isu on Pacific near Drake.  If you’re down in the Yaletown area for LiveCity Yaletown, any of the ceremonies or hockey, or just to stroll I highly advise stopping in at the small eateries that you will walk past.  Many of them are extending their hours during the Games, making them more accessible and they pretty much all serve great food (I am qualifying only because I have not been to all of them, but I’ve not had a bad meal at any of the ones I’ve been to).  And you’ll have a lot to choose from including Japanese and Mexican.  Following on Katie’s post the other day, if you’re a bit peckish you can stop for food and a toilet break at these restaurants.

Right – I ate (went off on a tangent) and then headed down to Molson Canadian Hockey House at Concord Place for their media preview.  Oops, one more tangent… on the walk to MCHH you can get a really good look at the Olympic Village on the south side of False Creek and the Canadians have been decorating BIG time!

Go Canada Go!!

Right, tangents over.  MCHH looks ready to go!  Everything is decorated, the stage is set, the beer is cold and people are ready (I know I am!).  As I’ve posted before, there are two ways to get in.  The first is to buy a $99 Fan Zone Pass.  This will get you admission to MCHH all day as well as snacks.  Drinks are available for purchase: $7.50 for beer and $10 for other drinks (price includes tax and gratuity).  Or you can get a VIP Pass for somewhere around $500, depending on the day.  The VIP passes include an open bar, gourmet meals and seating in the VIP area as well as other perks I’m told.

Some of the entertainment - the Black Aces and Sean Cullen in the Molson Canadian shirt.

The MCHH will also host Hockey Canada and the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).  Both of these organizations also have space in the tent.  Hockey Canada has a VIP section and a family section, the walls are decorated with photos of our teams and they will be serving wine from none other than No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery!

Our women! Their posters hang in the Family Lounge.

No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Estate wines served here!

Did I mention that the beer served at MCHH all comes from the Molson Coors brewery here in Vancouver?  Nifty. 

Thank you merci!

    Hey 2010 VanFan,

    Actually, the 99$ tickets are ENTIRELY sold out for the entire span of the Olympics and the only ones available at this point are the All You Can Drink/Eat VIP passes at $499. However, if you are the high roller type, and are looking for the VVIP Experience, you can try bidding on one of our awesome meet and greets. Imagine sitting down to lunch with a legend like Grant Fuhr, Denis Potvin, Paul Coffey and others! It could be the experience of a lifetime. Read more about it at http://vipthrills.com/mchh/?p=7

      Happy Olympics,
      Andrea
