MAYOR EMANUEL RAISES THE STAKES IN FRIENDLY WAGER ON OUTCOME OF BLACKHAWKS-DUCKS SERIES
Garrett’s Popcorn, Chicago-style sweet relish, and Slap Shot Beer at Stake; Mayor Emanuel Will Also Make a Contribution to Becoming A Man (BAM)
CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel is raising the stakes on Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait’s friendly wager on the outcome of the NHL playoff finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Anaheim Ducks.
On the table: A barrel of Garrett’s Popcorn, craft beer, and contributions to organizations for at-risk youth.
“I am excited to take part in this wager with our friends from the west. I have absolute confidence that our Blackhawks will take the series. In the unlikely case that things don’t go our way, I am prepared to send some craft beer from Slap Shot Brewing Co., a barrel of Chicago’s own Garett’s Popcorn, and some neon green relish from Vienna Beef for a true Chicago-style hot dog,” said Mayor Emanuel.
Mayor Emanuel will also make a contribution to Becoming A Man — BAM — an organization for at risk young men in grades 7 through 12.
The first match of the seven-game series against the Anaheim Ducks will take place at 2 p.m. in Anaheim. The winner heads to the Stanley Cup championship series.
