Two July events worth checking out

Chances to meet Bruins faces new and old are abundant in July. In addition to the development camp, free to the public, being held throughout the week at Wilmington's Ristuccia Arena, fans also have the chance to meet the guys at the 3rd Annual Frozen Face Off on Wednesday, July 18th from 6-8:00 p.m. at the Water Club of Marina Bay in Quincy.

A view, as pictured on the Water Club website, looking out onto Boston Harbor from inside the club.

Drinks like the "Slap Shot Mudslide" and the "Pina Colada Power Play" will be served to calm the nerves of talking to long-time idols. There will also be food, raffles and a silent auction. And of course, autographs for those who bring along some memorabilia. The place reportedly is situated with views of the Boston skyline - not bad for $40 admission. I plan to check it out if I can get the night off from work. And if the $40 ticket is too steep, the harbor cruise on July 31st is somehow cheaper, only $25. One additional warning: I read a little up on it and usually, there is a cover. Of course for this particular night the cover is $40 for a reason. Also, the specialy drinks are $9 a piece and domestic beers are $5 a pop. Not cheap by any means but depending on the people on hand, it could be worth a look.

On the last day of the month, the Bs are hosting a Sunset Harbor Cruise from 6-9:00 p.m. Jim Plunkett is performing during the cruise and as with the Frozen Face Off, raffles, silent auctions will take place while Bruins players and alumni will be on board. Terry O'Reilly and Bob Sweeney are two confirmed names.

July 31st happens to be a Tuesday, the one day I only work until 4:30, so I'll probably attend.
