Let’s Hab A Party

“Is party now!!! hahaha)))))))”  – Alex Ovechkin

The gang at Nellie’s, easily DC’s best sports bar no matter what team you play for, is hosting us again for a Caps watch party. This Saturday, April 20, the Caps face the Habs. Puck drop is 7pm, so we’re gathering there a little early to stake out some space in the 2nd floor “penalty box.” Our thanks to owner Doug Schantz for welcoming us back. The lockout precluded earlier watch parties, but better late than late – much like the late season streak the Caps are doing right now.Nellies 2013

At 9th & U Streets, NW, Nellie’s is a great spot and gets a very diverse crowd. Even immoral Penguins fans we’ve been told. That’s a kind of diversity we’re still trying to warm up to, maybe they were born that way. No matter, we’ve got the Habs on our minds and in our cross hairs. Hopefully Saturday night sees the Caps 10th 1st straight consecutive win.

The Nellie’s menu is top drawer , the bartenders pour a great drink and there are TVs-a-plenty. They’re just steps from the Vermont Avenue exit of the Green Line Metro, and that’s the best way to get there. We’ve hosted a watch party last season and any statutes of limitations have since expired, so WE’RE BACK! Please join us and wear your fave Caps sweater. Habs fans welcome, too. Diversity!

    Audibly laughed at the struckthrough “straight.” You’ll be hearing from my ACLU-provided lawyer.

    Are you guys going to go there for watching playoffs? I usually camp out at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern to watch entire evenings of the playoff docket. Would be fun to jeer. . . er, I mean cheer on the Caps from there at some point.

      I think we’ll be back at Nellie’s for the playoffs – if we don’t wear out our welcome Saturday night! What could possibli go wrong?
