There are a lot of giveaways during the game. Everyone that goes this year will receive a Caps cooler. They also do a jersey giveaway after they game. Fans are randomly selected by seat # during the game, and when the game is over they go down on the ice and get player's jerseys right off their backs.

Are you talking about that "Fado" place across the street? I love that place but they are waaaaaaay expensive. Very cool looking place inside though and they have good beer on tap there you don't see at some of the other spots (Harp, Smithwicks, Bass, Guinness, etc)

I have never been to the Verizon Center (I frequently work in DC), and wanted to know if I can get some info on what to expect getting in Verizon center and just general info about the whole experience. Anything I should avoid or try to experience?

Thanks guys

GO CAPS
We only go to "day" games, and take the Metro.

But, since it's a 7:00 game, make a day of it.

Go early, maybe (since the weather might be ooky) grab a pass through the Smithsonian museum(s) of your choice. Early dinner in Chinatown (or the Greene Turtle @ the "Phone Booth" if you want something simple), and have a blast at the game.

Seat Number giveaways, mostly.

Maybe a parachute drop of tshirts?

Maybe something new.

I've been to quite a few games, guess I'm what you call a fairweather fan tho. I don't watch on tv too often but go to a game whenever I can. Guys I worked with at my old job were friends with Corey Labre (Ivan Labre's son). I went to a couple games with both of them. They would wear fancy suits there and we sat right behind the glass.

I would make a day of it but I work in dc a lot, there is nothing in a museum that I haven't seen something cooler. When my daughter is older, if I am still in the area I will definitely take her to the museums. And I certainly don't like walking around downtown in the rain...

BTW there is a certain govt agency around dc that has saddam's golden guns on display in the lobby. Not open to the public, but they are like nothing you have seen. I also got to be part of a crew that turned the capital dome lights out (planned).
Back on topic, how great was it to see Tim Thomas act like a b#tch after that hendricks s/o goal... Made it worth it not winning in the 3rd...

The absolute BEST was seeing Timmy fall on his freakin' face after fleeing the ice in a hissy-fit, tripping on his way out the door off-ice while heading into the dressing rooms.

I believe it is Fado, BTW; I'm a sucker for Mick beers on tap.

I am part of the prestigious "partial plan" upper echelon. ie, we have seats three rows from the top for ten games.

Great experience and love watching them. I remember going when Hunter was palying for the Caps.
