The All-Visiting From Out of Town/Ticket Thread

My girlfriend and I are coming down for a vacation the week of Presidents Day and have tickets to the game against San Jose. We were wondering if anyone would be kind enough to give us some suggestions for someplace to grab a bite to eat before the game and a few good watering holes for after. Thanks!

Check out this link - it lists lost of local restaurants (though it does list one or two that no longer exist).

I prefer the Irish Channel, in the Red Roof Inn at 5th & G. You can almost always get a seat or table, the atmosphere is low key, beer is great and the food better than average.

Clyde's Restaurant and Bar right next to Verizon Center is my preferred place to go before and after games because its close to Metro and the rink. Its likely crowded but there are 2 bars and good food. I think Ovey may go there sometimes.

Not a fan of Legal Seafood – at least not the one in the District. I did like the calamari at where ever it was we went --- (McCormick's???)

Gordon and Biersch makes a killer ahi tuna appetizer.

Was it McCormick's we went to? I was referencing the wrong place. Most of that post-game is no longer in my cranium.

Well being sloshed will do that to you.


If it was McCormic's (and I think it was) --- they have good calamari and it isn't too crowded.

Advice for a visitor

Hi Caps fans,

I will be in DC on business in a couple weeks and would like to take in a Caps game.

Any advice to make the experience all it can be would be great. Where to eat before, party after, etc.

Thanks for any advice you may have for a visiting hockey fan.

Ohh and I will root for the Caps!

Thanks!

Do you have a student ID? The Caps have some really excellent deals for students.

a tip before going to a game:

don't have a large dinner the night of the game as the caps' performance often induces nausea and/or vomiting.


...sorry i'm just bitter at the moment.

I was about to say the same thing.

Bring a paper bag or something, man.

I'm used to it...I'm a Leafs fan. Still looking forward to seeing Ovechkin, Semin et al vs. Tampa on Boxing Day. Still can't get over how easy it is to get great seats.

That's because the team is sucking royally, man. Plus, well.. this is DC, and the only losing team that this city really supports no matter what are the Skins.

You'll be wowed by AO and Semin (assuming his ankle is ok by then..), but you'll also be wowed at Pothier's ability to fumble the puck at the blue line at least once every PP, the inability to complete any passing whatsoever (both ES and on the PP), and the complete lack of defense. You'll leave wondering what the hell it is that you just watched, checking your ticket stubs to make sure you didn't accidentally buy tickets to Disney On Ice or something.

Im going to be in town for the Feb 2nd game, do the caps have open morning skates/practices? If so, is it at the arena? A PM would be appreciated, since I usually spend all my time in the coyotes thread.

Thanks!
