After the Game, It's the Afterparty

By Fritz Hahn

D.C. United fans know that tonight's Beckham sideshow -- sorry, match against the L.A. Galaxy -- has been sold out for weeks. We'd been hearing the same thing about the semi-private post-match party at Lima, which will be hosted by D.C. United and U.S. National Team defender Bobby Boswell. (If you're not familiar with Bobby, he had quite a year in 2006: He was named Major League Soccer's Defender of the Year and was also one of 50 finalists in Cosmopolitan's "Bachelor of the Year" competition. You figure out which was the bigger honor: On Boswell's official blog, his biography describes him as "24 years old and really, really, ridiculously good looking.")

Anyway, back to this "official afterparty" at Lima. While it was originally for invited guests only, word now comes that organizers have taken over the club's second floor and are releasing what they're calling "a limited amount of last-minute tickets" to the public. These won't be available at the door, but can be purchased at until 3 p.m. today. (Boswell's site says noon in some places, but his P.R. team says 3 p.m.) The $50 cover charge includes an open bar from 10 p.m. on, so you should be able to drink back at least some of the cost of admission. Freebies and gift bags will be floating around, too.

I'm told that D.C. United and L.A. Galaxy players will be in attendance -- we know Ben Olsen's going -- but you might not want to count on Becks.

Does anyone know of a good place to watch the game tonight, for those of us who didn't get tickets? Thanks...

Indebleu is claiming to have an official afterparty as well.
