GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers will not be hosting an NFL Draft party this year because of construction at the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Curly’s Pub will be open for people to watch the draft, however. On May 8, the night of the first round, the pub will also offer food and drink specials, the team says. There will also be contests, offering fans the chance to win gift certificates to Curly’s Pub and the Packers Pro Shop.

The first round of the NFL Draft is scheduled for May 8, with the second and third rounds May 9 and the final four rounds May 10.

The construction happening at Lambeau Field is part of a $166 million expansion that is expected to be completed in summer 2015.
