The Standard Hotel
What The Puck Tournament
For the past five years, an impromptu rink has been set up outsideThe Standard Hotel's Meatpacking location, providing the perfect spot for, what else, an urban pond hockey tournament. Held on five consecutive. Saturday nights in January and February, the contest features 64 players on 16 teams (The Muffin Stuffers, The Fighting Cocks ...you get it) battling it out in front of an audience of bemused tourists, idling Uber drivers and every local player in the know.
