Some of you may remember we had a T-Minus 50 Days until the Puck Drops party last August at the Green Turtle. I know some of the Japers' crowd came - and I think I remember a few people here wondering if we were Green Turtle management in disguise. Nope, just a bunch of Caps fans looking for an excuse to do a Caps pregame-style extended happy hour in August.
JP joined us on our "Unleash the Furry" Hershey Bears trip last spring so he can attest to the fact that it's a fun crowd.
I think *today* is officially 50 days until the season starts but for scheduling reasons were doing it next Thursday (T-Minus 43, I guess).
Instead of the Turtle, this year we're doing it at Rocket Bar and because one of our buddies is in a bowling league with one of the owners (both Caps STHs) we're getting some pretty good deals:
-20% off final bill for all Caps fans
- free pool, shuffleboard and darts
Pass the word around. We've got a facebook page set up with all the details, and yes, we've been deleting all "Party sounds lame. Go Pens!" postings. Screw them.
Here's the facebook link and the description, pass it around with reckless abandon:
Ok Caps fans, it’s time once again to show that not even the dog days
of summer can prevent DC from being a Hockey Town.
Last year we held the "1st Annual T-Minus 50 days until the Puck Drops
Party" at the Green Turtle. This year we’re stepping it up notch.
Dust off your Knuble and Steckel jerseys, unwrap your new Carlson or
Alzner jersey, bring out the face paint or your new red vuvuzela and
join us to Rock the Red at the Rocket Bar next to the Verizon Center.
Pool & Darts will be free for all in attendance as well as 20% off
your final bill!
Pass this on and invite others with reckless abandon and on 8/26/10
let's rock Rocket Bar and begin the countdown! Less than 50 Days to go
till the 2010 Quest for the Cup begins!
Let's do it folks. We're a Hockey Town. This is how we roll.
