It’s the best time of year, playoff time. One of my favorite things about the playoffs is how the city responds to the excitement of a potential Stanley Cup run.
Of course, we kicked things off with the launch of our playoff hashtag, #FourTheCup and are starting to ship out shirts, tanks, hoodies, and stickers tonight.
The city is also starting to come alive with VGK pride too. First, the Credit One building right off the 215 has been wrapped with the words “Knight Up” and a gigantic logo.
Next, the nightclub at Red Rock has been transformed into Crimson at Knight.
You can see more pictures of Crimson on Fox 5’s website.
My favorite is the VGK themed food starting to pop up around town. First, at one of the best restaurants in the entire city, Zuma, is the Golden Maki Roll. An eight-piece sushi roll of bluefin tuna, tempura flakes, and pickled daikon topped with toro, fried ginger, Ossetra caviar, and 24-karat gold leaf.
Staying with the sushi theme, Sushi Ichiban has the Golden Knight roll made with soft shell crab and onion crunch and topped with peanut butter, spicy crab meat, spicy garlic ponzu, and spicy yum sauce.
And lastly, this post would not be complete without a doughnut. Pinkbox Doughnuts offers the Golden Knight.
And this is just the start. It’s go time and Vegas is ready.
