Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill Punches Guests for Prizes

NFL fans kick off the 2011 season at Smokey Bones for a chance to win all-expense paid trip and tickets for two to the final faceoff in Indianapolis.

Miami, FL, September 12, 2011 --( In honor of the highly anticipated NFL football season, Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill will be giving fans something to cheer about. From Sept. 8, 2011 through Jan. 1, 2012, the restaurant and bar specializing in good food, good drinks and good times, will offer a Smokin’ Season Pass Punch Card with which guests get punched for watching games onsite and correctly guessing a winning team on each game day. As punches accumulate, they can be redeemed for prizes along the way or saved up until the end of the season for a chance to win an all-inclusive trip for two to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

The “Smokin’ Season Pass Punch Card” will have two sides, one acting as a scoreboard and the other outlining guests’ predictions for a winning team on each game day. All restaurant locations will manage and distribute the cards upon a patron’s arrival and collect the cards after each game. The cards will be available to guests all season long starting on September 8th at the restaurant’s kickoff event where guests that receive their first punch before half-time will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card to Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill. Participants will be allowed up to two punches each game day, one for being onsite and another for correctly guessing the victorious team during one game taking place that day.
