Grizzlies 2013 Playoff Promotions
MEMPHIS, April 19, 2013 Now that the Grizzlies have secured their spot in the 2013 NBA Playoffs, it’s time for the City of Memphis to do what it does best—party! The Grizzlies will give Memphians plenty of opportunities to do just that as they host Budweiser Playoff Watch Parties for Playoff Road Games 1 (Saturday, April 20) and 2 (Monday, April 22) and FedExForum Plaza Parties for Games 3 (Thursday, April 25) and 4 (Saturday, April 27), all while the City of Memphis continues to rally behind its team in painting the town blue and gold.
Throughout the Grizzlies’ 2013 Playoffs, presented by Memphis Toyota Dealers and First Tennessee Bank, the Grizzlies will provide fun and entertainment no matter where the team is playing. For both Playoff Road Games, the Grizzlies are hosting, with Budweiser of Memphis, four simultaneous watch parties. The Budweiser Playoff Watch Parties will take place at Bar Louie (2125 Madison Ave., Memphis 38104), Flying Saucer (130 Peabody Pl., Memphis 38103), Boo-Yah’s (954 W. Poplar Ave., Collierville 38017) and Buffalo Wild Wings (8385 U.S. 64 #101, Memphis 38133) with the party beginning at 9 p.m. in anticipation of the Grizzlies’ 9:30 p.m. tip-off against the Clippers.
Once the Grizzlies return home for Games 3 and 4 of the series, the Playoff Party on the Plaza will commence with FedExForum Plaza Parties, presented by associate sponsor Southland Park Gaming and Racing, on April 25 and 27, beginning two hours prior to tip-off on both days (6:30 p.m. for 8:30 p.m. tip on April 25; 1:30 p.m. for 3:30 p.m. tip on April 27). The parties will feature live music performances from the C Spire Wireless Stage. Other highlights include a kids play area sponsored by Chick-fil-a which will include inflatables, face painters and balloon artists. Sonic Drive-Ins will also sponsor sign-making stations.
All fans attending the Grizzlies’ first two Playoff Home Games will receive a Playoff Rally Towel. The Playoff Rally Towels will be sponsored by First Tennessee Bank and Memphis Toyota Dealers for Game 3 and FedEx for Game 4.
Following each home playoff game will be the official after-party at Bleu Restaurant and Lounge, located across the street from FedExForum, where the Grizz Girls will be on hand to help giveaway a Westin Escape Package.
Fans are encouraged to arrive to FedExForum earlier than normal for all playoff games. Due to the enhanced security measures and hand-wanding procedures that have been put in place, doors will open 90 minutes prior to tip-off for all
Memphis Grizzlies home postseason contests and two hours early for MVP Season Ticket Holders. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the festivities and allow them to get to their seats and enjoy the most positive game-watching experience possible.
Coming off 10 straight home playoff game sellouts, Grizzlies’ fans are encouraged to guarantee their playoff tickets by purchasing 2013-14 Season Tickets. Season Tickets start at just $5 per game.
