Halloween weekend is here and if you don’t make it through lunch on Friday, you’re not doing it right. I’m not talking about snatching any Pink Whitney shots yet, but a few golden Big Deal Brewing beers and a hearty 3-course European meal will set the tone for the holiday weekend.
League: Czech Extraliga
Aperitif: Obložené Chlebíčky – small open appetizer sandwiches with an assortment of eggs, meats, cheeses and vegetables and are meant to be eaten in a few small bites. Great beer snack in case you need to have too much and skip the main course, you’ll still have a solid base.
Game: Ceske Budejovice to Kometa Brno
Time: 11 a.m. EST.
Murls best bet: Kometa Brno 3 way -134
League: Of Germany
Main course: Matrosenfleisch – Traditional German meat dish originating from the Bremen region of the country. This comforting dish is made with beef tenderloin, bacon, flour, butter, onions, parsley, beef broth, sour cream, lemon zest, capers, marjoram, salt and pepper. Grab a side of Spätzle and you’ll be ready to be on the beers all through the final NHL games.
Game: Straubing Tigers in Bremerhaven Fischtown Penguins
Time: 1:30 p.m. EST.
Murls best bet: Bremerhaven 3 lanes -112
League: Swiss A League
Dessert: Apricots cake – The apricot halves are pushed into the buttered base of the cake then the cake is baked before being served. I loved this dessert when I was in Switzerland, I always doubled the whipped cream.
Game: SC Bern at Rapperswil Lakers
Time: 1:45 p.m. EST.
Murls best bet: Bern Moneyline +135
Look for long-time NHL point producer Tyler Ennis to shake off the jet lag for this game and find his name on the scoresheet 2-3 times!
Just a reminder that we’re less than a week away from the premiere of The chicklets etc.. podcast featuring Colby “Army” Armstrong and myself talking about all things hockey with Biz and Whit. Make sure you have paper and a pen handy as we will be handing out all the winners!!
Everyone is rolling!!
