What up Caps fans? I've been talking with JP and Dave Nichols from the Capitals News Network and we've been coordinating a New Years Eve party in Pittsburgh for the 31st. I spoke with the Caps PR and they are only planning a private thing for the players, so it's on us. JP, Dave, and I think we found the best spot, so join us.
I went to the Caps/Pens playoff game two years ago in Pittsburgh with 6 friends. Both nights we hit the Hofbräuhaus, which is a fantastic time. It's a huge venue so it will easily accommodate all of us. Their beer menu is nothing short of fantastic, and even better, there is no cover for New Years. It's just a normal night. They'll have live music, and it's a very similar vibe to the real Hofbrauhaus. An added bonus is they have these ski poles with 5 shot glasses fastened into them, so after you take it down in front of some Pens fans you can cross check em in the face.
What does everyone think?
ps - For those that don't know, I'm the editor for SB Nation's Redskins' website, Hogs Haven. Tough times right now.
