Who knew there was a Coaches Club underneath the ice (or floor) at Verizon Center? Makes sense, but I’d never seen the signs — or the signs.
After the recent loss to the of-so-woeful Islanders (is it me or do the Caps love close games against crappy opponents — DANGER! — in five Caps games so far this season, I’ve been to two shoot outs and an overtime. Fun for me, but not so good for a team that should be putting opponents away …) a friend of a friend hooked us up with passes to the mysterious Johnnie Walker club.
Question: does one order Johnnie Walker at the Johnnie Walker club?
Answer: this fan had a Bud Light. Didn’t want to be pretentious. It is hockey, after all.
So we joined the privileged few, hanging out in the darkened club – a small bar with a lounge-y area where the NBA game was on and a two-sided rail with bar stools . Only downer? Apparently, the players were as bummed out by the overtime loss as the fans. No shows at the club. Alas.
