This post has been on the back burner because of stupid Chara stuff.
But like we said the day after while we nursed our hangover, the game sucked but the viewing party was a blast. We had about 50ish people RSVP for the event; not sure if that many came out but there was very much a sweet crowd there -- some of which came all the way down from NH (dedication!). The entire DOY staff showed up with kid-sized WWF Wrestling Championship belts... our silly gift to ourselves for winning Best Bruins Blog.
We hosted the event alongside our buddy Joe Gill over at Boston Sports Then and Now. He did a great job booking the venue and getting us free apps. He did a recap story of the event, too.
We gave away around 10 t-shirts (from us, SupahFans who are having a sale this weekend, Bottom Line Appearal, and Colleen Keenan), an autograph print of Tyler Seguin's first goal, a Bobby Orr print, a Johnny Boychuk print and a $100 giftcard to the Place which was then promptly spent by the very generous winner. Not a bad night, despite the game. All-in-all everyone seemed to have a good time and the beer flowed like water. A good atmosphere to watch hockey we think.
If you were at the Bruins-Habs event, let us know what you thought of it. We're thinking of doing another viewing party in the playoffs.
After the jump, lots of pictures of the event... lots of pictures... Greg (@PezDOY) photobombs at least 25% of them...
More black shirts than Hot Topic...
