There’s an LGBT social networking site operating in DC that’s not a hookup outfit like Grindr, Scruff or whatever the online flavor of the month is, but one that gets people together to do cool things when they’re vertical – LIKE GO TO CAPS GAMES!
The Welcoming Committee is already in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle. This Thursday, for Caps v. Stars, they’re organizing a night out to the game. The cost is $50 (info on added discount and iherb coupon code below) and that comes with a free t-shirt. From Molly at their HQ:
While we are well known for our Guerilla Queer Bar (GQB) night in which we takeover typically straight bars and clubs with hundreds of our members, we have expanded our offerings as we discussed to include sporting, cultural, nightlife, and travel experiences. In DC this summer we attempted our first concert takeover in which we brought 44 of our members to the Verizon Center for the Ariana Grande concert on July 25th. We also hosted a U-street bar crawl in August selling about 140 tickets and a very successful Pride GQB pre-party.
The basics (details are here):
- Thursday, November 19th at 7pm. Seats are in section 407 rows L-Q.
- Tickets are $50 + a free t-shirt (a 20% discount)
- Use discount code: puckbuddys for $5 off!!
- Purchase tickets here.
- Pregaming at City Tap House (901 9th Street) starts at 6pm.
- This is their first stab at the NHL but they’ve successfully hosted base ball and hoops games in several other cities.
