A good hockey game always provides a “smashin'” good time, so it’s no wonder Smashburger loves the Colorado Avalanche. The popular burger joint is hosting an Avalanche giveaway on Wednesday, December 16 at one of its Denver locations (7305 E. 35th Ave., 303-586-8300) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Avalanche mascot Bernie will be on hand to “bark it up” with fans. The fun evening includes great prizes (an Avalanche team-signed hockey stick and jersey!), pictures and autographs. (Based on our source, there is no mention of any player appearances.) It’s the perfect opportunity to put a straw in the chain’s new Colorado Avalanche Shake!
