The Afternoon Shift – Nov. 18

The fruits of more than a year’s worth of planning and nearly four months of construction will be tasted for the first time this Saturday when “Amway Section A,” the $1.2 million expansion of Van Andel Arena’s northwest concourse, is dedicated prior to the Griffins’ game against the Lake Erie Monsters.

Intended as a way to alleviate concourse congestion during large arena events, this new 3,500-square-foot addition will feature a full bar, concession-style food service and three 42” flat screen TVs.

All ticketed fans and media are invited to attend a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 6:15 p.m. Saturday. The first 500 fans to visit Amway Section A and experience Van Andel Arena’s newest amenity will receive a free t-shirt, while special prizes will be available for select fans who check in and tweet from the area. Be sure to include “@Amway Section A” and #LetsGoGriffins in your posts to be eligible to win.
