“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.
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!
