They told him to bring his hockey skates to the arena, as the name "Skates & Plates" meant he would be serving the tables while gliding around on the ice.
When we asked Bennett about it, he said he actually wouldn’t call it a prank “as I really thought we were going to be skating and serving the food to all the fans.”
Continued Bennett, laughing, “I thought they were going to bring our skates over and we were going to be skating on little aisles in between all the tables. So I was trying to get in the right mental state to do that tonight.”
That is tremendous.
