Here Is A List Of This Season’s Grizzlies Giveaways
Question: What is the one thing that gets some Memphians more excited than Trader Joe’s, Memphis-themed t-shirts, and snowpocalypses combined?
Answer: Grizzlies Giveaway nights.
The freebies given to the first fans to arrive at FedExForum are coveted items, and they seem to get crazier and crazier each year. Folks line up hours (and I do mean hours) ahead of time to snag a Grizzlies wrestling belt, pair of flip flops, scarf, or poster.
Here is the 2015 – 2016 Grizzlies giveaway promotional schedule.
