Ithaca’s BoatYard Grill is celebrating Cornell Hockey hitting #1 with a $1 steak offer

Cornell Big Red Men’s Ice Hockey hit #1 in this week’s polls for the first time in 15 years, and our friends at the BoatYard Grill are celebrating with a special offer for hockey fans. Ticketholders for this Friday or Saturday’s games can buy one Big Red Steak for $1 with the purchase of another at regular price, this Wednesday or Thursday.

The BoatYard folks are known for their steaks, as well as their fish and seafood specialties, at this favorite waterfront restaurant, and owner Mark Campagnolo said “I want to do something ridiculous to celebrate Cornell hitting #1.”

Campagnolo and company also do an annual promotion with Cornell Hockey offering a free Big Red Burger and fries once a year for those who attend a particular game, and that offer came just last weekend.

According to the BoatYard Grill, those who’d like to take advantage of the offer to buy one steak dinner at regular price and get another for $1 should be prepared to show their ticket for one of this weekend’s hockey games or a receipt proving they purchased one.

Cornell is in action at Lynah Rink this coming Friday and Saturday against Union College and RPI, both 7pm games, and tickets are available at
