It’s going to be COLD on Sunday in Green Bay when the Packers take on the Bears. If you’re going to Lambeau Field, be prepared for BRUTAL conditions. The high for the game is expected to be 17 degrees with a windchill factor of 8 degrees. The Packers are taking care of their fans on Sunday.
Lambeau Field will provide free hot beverages on Sunday:
“As fans prepare to come to Lambeau Field for Sunday’s Packers-Bears Fan Appreciation Game, the Green Bay Packers today offered a few reminders.
The Packers and Delaware North will be offering free Kwik Trip hot chocolate as well as hot cider, limited to two per customer, during Sunday’s game to help fans battle the forecasted cold. The free hot chocolate will be available at about 40 concessions locations throughout the stadium. Free hot cider will also be available at sections 105, 106, 133, 134, 326 and 427.”
Credit to the Packers. That is a hell of a gesture. Green Bay also went above and beyond here. They posted an entire press release with many points. Some of them include encouraging fans to not drink or limit alcohol consumption. I was always under the impression that alcohol keeps you warm. Apparently, it prevents your body from generating heat. Learn something new every day.
Normally these drinks cost $5. I was surprised. I’ve been to some sporting events where they sell hot chocolate and charge you more than if you got a bushel of crabs. There is also a two drink limit per costumer but I’m sure you can just walk over to another section and cash in again. I was also surprised to see it’s only going to be 17 degrees. I figured Green Bay has dealt with worse.
