Rangers viewing parties for tonight vs Panthers

http://keepmsg.com/viewingparties/viewing_parties.html

I'm going to the New York Historical Society today and I see that Brother Jimmys is about 4 blocks away. How is that place? Anyone plan on going? I wonder what type of food and drink specials will be offered. Sais the Rangers will provide free appetizers....

My buddy says they have some swamp water in a fish bowl drink that's supposed to be good, wings and BBQ food.

Can't be bad. I'd go but, unfortunately, I'm not getting out of the office 'til 7.

Bro Jams is a fratty bar. On a thursday night you're gunna get a mix of young 20s finance guys and hipsters and drunk blondes. Not a bad time, but not the ideal spot to watch the Rangers game IMO.

At brother jimmys now. Spent the day at the NY historical society. The food is ok. Not bad, not amazing. Had some $2 bud lights. I doubt they will put the game audio on. What former players are supposed to come?

I live a few blocks from there, and that's a pretty accurate description. It trends young because it's cheap.

Saw the new painting of Washington Crossing the Delaware, and it was my first time at the museum since the $75 million renovation. One of the best museums in the city, along with Fraunces Tavern.

Didn't know there was a "new" one, hopefully it's not a historical trainwreck like the old one. lol. Cant say I've ever been to that museum, which is kindof shameful since I'm a huge history buff, will have to check it out.

Brian Mullen was at Trinity Place.

The place was loud and crowded so I left after the 1st. Listening on the radio at home now.

I hate MSG.

I also went to Trinity Place last night since it is a few blocks from my apartment. It's one of my usual haunts since they serve some of my favorite beers and it's usually pretty dead once the after work crowd goes home.

During the first period, it was loud and reasonably crowded (not "body-on-body" crowded, but very few seats left). The problem was that the free appetizers (sliders, mini-dogs in puff pastry, some Americanized empanadas) kept the after work crowd hanging out a little longer than usual. They had the game audio at a reasonable volume and people were trying to talk OVER the announcers. As the game wore on, the bar was less and less crowded, until it was about 2/3 empty by the 2nd intermission.

Attendees received a free t-shirt (nothing you would want to pay for, but good enough to use at the gym), pens, and raffle tickets (they gave away two pairs of tickets to the 1/10 game versus the Yotes). I will probably go again tonight.
