Free Beer for Caps Fans

Figured it would be a disservice to the 21-plus crowd if I didn't relay this message from the Going Out Gurus:

Caps fans, if you're looking for a place to watch the big game tonight, we've got the perfect spot for you: Darlington House. Okay, so it's not right next to the Verizon Center, but check this out: Every time the Capitals score a goal, you get a free beer. No catch.
Darlington House first tried this in the lower-level Cantina pub during Game 7 of the series against the New York Rangers, and it went so well that Darlington House's managers tell me they're going to keep up the promotion as long as the Caps are in the playoffs. As if we needed for more reasons to cheer for Ovie to score.
Get to Darlington House early, as capacity is limited -- and so are the number of seats with views of the flat-screen TVs behind the bar.

If you're not going to Verizon Center or a sports bar but watching at home, Katie Carrera will be back to do a live chat at 7 p.m. If you're out and want exclusive updates, analysis and a live game summary, head on over to from your mobile phone and click on "Caps Playoff Central." It's not beer, but it is free. We try.

I think Tarik should host the chat tonight. But I bet he's probably really busy and doesn't have time to chat with us. :/

Rachel, you are correct. No time to chat.

I wish they would do that at Verizon Center.

Maybe I would understand what Wilbon was trying to say if I gave a damn about basketball. At the same time, I don't care about what the color of the skin is of the guys fighting. Fighting is something I like to see, and I enjoy it, in the context of Hockey, or even MMA. Does Wilbon honestly think that because it's a predominantly racial issue? What about a nationalist issue? Canadians are the prime supporters of hockey, not Americans. 65 years of hockey pugilism, he points to, and only 35 of them have happened here in DC. I don't think it's a valid argument.

Maybe you should do it Lindsay. Not trying to be mean but it seems like everytime Katie does it, we lose! :'(

That's a much more important story than Wilbon's racism.

Ha! I think they won a few with Katie chatting!

I *heart* Darlington House.

Since Tarik is the "beat writer" for the post, should we be afraid of him?

Title of tomorrow's Wilbon Article: Hockey is racist because it gives free beer to a fan base that is primarily white

Posted by: BondraMan | May 4, 2009 5:12 PM | Report abuse

Full Disclosure: I *heart* free beer, not Darlington House.
Of course, this brings up the old "if A=B and B=C, does A=C" connundrum.

...And that would be math. On a hockey blog. For which I deserve to be pummeled by Brashear. To recap:

Free beer rulz
4-12 droolz*

It is time for Nicklas Beerstrom.
