“We are looking forward to hosting a fantastic event for the community. We’ve got a great band, great partners in I95, a strong lineup of beers, and the menu is going to be tasty. Hopefully we don’t blow the roof off the building,” Managing Partner Herm Sorcher said in a news release.

“Our goal is to develop a series of non-traditional events beyond just the ice hockey — this is a great start in that direction and part of our overall plan to make this building a premier destination in New England,” Managing Partner Chris Buonanno said.

Danbury Arena, 1 Independence Way. Saturday, Oct. 12, 3-8 p.m. $65 VIP, $40 general admission.
