Free Beer for Capitals Fans

By Fritz Hahn

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.

Wednesday Update: I went to Darlington House on Monday, and everything worked out perfectly. After Ovie scored twice in quick succession, I soon had two full beers sitting in front of me.

It doesn't matter whether you sit at the bar or at a table -- the servers bring full pints of Miller Lite out to everyone after the goals. (Yes, the only free beer is Miller Lite, but seriously -- it's free.) No other food or drink purchase is required, though if you're hoping to subsist on free beers for a couple of hours, that might not work out for you.
