The Denver Stiffs are excited to announce that we are taking our watch party global! On December 15th (14th in the United States), Turf Bar in Melbourne, Australia will be hosting the first ever Stiffs Night Out / Denver Nuggets Watch Party event outside of the United States.
The Denver Nuggets will be hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder for a game that will be broadcast on both ESPN and Altitude TV. Friend of the site, Adrian Gonnella will be helping us host the event with fans from all over Australia expected to make their way to Melbourne and cheer on Nikola Jokic, Gary Harris and the rest of the Nuggets.
The event couldn’t have fallen on a better night because the Nuggets and Thunder create drama every time they meet. Divisional rivals, the two teams played four times last season and three of the four games were decided by just three points or less. All four were entertaining games, especially Denver’s 127-124 win at Pepsi Center that was sealed with a Gary Harris buzzer-beating three-pointer. That game might’ve been the best NBA game of the entire regular season last year.
December 15th is also an unofficial holiday for the Nuggets since that was the date that Jokic was named the team’s starting center back in 2016. The team has gone 77-55 with Jokic in the lineup since then and has slowly turned into one of the league’s most promising and entertaining teams.
The Denver Nuggets themselves will be sending prizes and giveaways including autographed posters. Turf Bar will be providing some incredible food and drink specials. Get a Porterhouse Steak or Chicken Parma plus select beer for $20. $20 beer buckets, $7.50 pints of Yenda Lager, $9 pints of Magners Cider, and more! It’s not everyday that you can join fellow NBA fans for a watch party like this. So put on your Nuggets jersey, PFM, Garrison, or HOME shirt, grab a beer to do a shoey, and make your way to the party!
So if you’re in Australia, get to Melbourne and meet other Denver Nuggets fans at what should be one of the most fun nights of the year!
