Those with tickets to the Thunder Alley viewing party and the arena can access the plaza via the west sidewalk in between the JW Marriott and the Pam Iorio Garage, the west sidewalk at the intersection of Morgan/Channelside or the entryway to the plaza at the NW corner of AMALIE Arena. Tickets to reserve your spot go on sale on Friday, April 19 at noon.

To celebrate the Playoffs, the Tampa Bay Lightning will be at various partner restaurant locations from April 22 through April 25 providing Lightning fans with surprises each day.  Follow Tampa Bay Lightning social media channels to find the offer and location each day.
