I'm sure some of you have gotten the emails or otherwise heard of this deal (oft-mocked for the inclusion of the Mystics season ticket), where you can buy playoff game tickets directly from the Caps if you purchase a package that includes a pre-game buffet with free beer and wine, a hat and rally towel, etc.
I broke down and bought two tickets to tonight's game this way because I missed out on the STH presale for the first time and even with the extra money for the "bonus items" the tickets were cheaper than StubHub and Craig's List.
Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you have taken advantage of this offer and could tell me what to expect. What time should I show up? Was it crowded? Was it hard to get drinks? Did the food run out at a certain time? Can you watch warm-ups from the Dewar's Club, or should we plan on being done with food and drink in time to take our actual seats?
Apologies for the non-hockey-substantive FanPost, but I was just curious if others have experienced this or talked to people who have.
See you tonight -- we're behind the goal where Fedorov will score the third period winner again!
