Booze Sales OK For NHL Game At Michigan Stadium

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Alcohol sales are OK at Michigan Stadium on New Year’s Day when the home of Wolverines’ football team hosts a hockey game between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced Wednesday that he signed a bill allowing liquor sales at the Ann Arbor venue after the Legislature gave its approval.

The NHL made alcohol sales a condition for holding the outdoor Winter Classic game.

Officials say the game could break a Guinness World Record as the most-attended hockey game ever. The record was set at Michigan Stadium in 2010 when 104,173 attended a Michigan State-Michigan game.
