As the blog has grown, one of the things I regret is that we haven't planned some sort of event for many of us to enjoy Wizards basketball and get to know each other in person. This place is a community, after all, and it's high time for that community to extend beyond the anonymity of the Internet.
In light of that, I'm proud to announce that we at SB Nation are going to be doing just that. On February 1, SB Nation D.C. will be having a Wizards and Capitals viewing party over at Mad Hatter in Dupont Circle. The Wizards will be playing the New Orleans Hornets on the road that night, and the Caps have Montreal at home. We'd love for you all to come out, get some discounted drinks and talk shop with your fellow Wizards fans.
Here are the details as they stand, and I'll fill you all in with more once we lock more down. There will be a form where you'll say you're coming that we'll set up in the next few days, and I'll post that once we get it.
- What: Wizards/Capitals viewing party, sponsored by SB Nation D.C.
- Where: The Mad Hatter (1321 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC 20036)
- When: February 1, 7 p.m. (The Wizards play at 8)
- Price: Free
- Specials: From 7-8 p.m.: $3 Rail, $3 Bud/Bud Light/Alice Amber Draft (the house ale), $4.50 house wins, buy one appetizer get one free. From 8-closing: Half off all draft beers.
I look forward to seeing many of you all there!
