Ice Forum unfreezes new offers

BRANDON — The Ice Sports Forum has thawed out some new ideas while continuing to serve as the primary practice facility for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning plans to hold a practice open to the public on Oct. 10, Columbus Day, and that event represents just one of several new features.

New sales and marketing director Lorraine Tuohey notes there have been a number of upgrades. Centerline Cafe has improved the quality of its menu and may add Indigo Coffee in the next month. It also offers catering menu for nearby hotels and tailgate parties.

The Power Play Grill stays open until the last patron leaves, with an adult hockey league competing on Sunday, fans can watch real hockey and NFL games on the big screen at the same time.

The forum's meeting rooms feature new carpet, doors and paint jobs. Chairs and tables can be supplied and the price is negotiable based on catering needs.

The forum also has a Learn to Skate program that started last week and a 12-week Mighty Mite program for kids ages 5-7 that starts Thursday.

Laser tag remains a popular feature at the forum for parties, and the game also can serve as a corporate team building exercise for businesses.

For more information, call (813) 684-7825 or visit IceSportsForum.com.
