flames v. soldiers pregame & blogger meet-up info

i'll start with the blogger meetup thing. ST from completely hammered is flying in from toronto later this week, and has proposed we meet up to watch the preds game on friday. while i'm leniant to do it (knowing that the flames have a bad habit of losing during these blogger socials, and knowing that every point counts), i'm rarely one to turn down a pint and a game.... so i'll let ST tell us whereabouts in the city he's gonna be, and we'll go from there. personally, i'm thinking brewsters on 11th & 8th, but only because the kilkenny is full of such bad mojo, and brewsters is more central for those of you who live down south... ;)

as for tonight's game, the bluejackets march into the 'dome looking to make up some ground on the 8th and final playoff spot. they've won some huge games in the past weeks, knocking off such formidable opponents as the canadiens, sens, and 'nucks. it seems this team enjoys a challenge, while falling to the lesser opponents (sound familiar ??). it's this particular statistic that makes me nervous about tonight's outcome...

go flames !

My brother and I are staying just South of downtown, but we aren't too worried about being able to get around. You guys know the city infinitely better than we do, so we'll meet up wherever you guys want to go... : D

haha. am i right ?
;)

Steal Thunder said...

No, we are at the Days Inn... close though...

MetroGnome said...

Flames central? No?

walkinvisible said...

we could do flames central... it would seem like the right thing to do, sure, except parking sucks and $8 for a pint of canadian... but i'd be down...

MetroGnome said...

wow...I didn't know it was that pricey. Damn gougers.

MG, you still haven't been ? maybe it's the right thing to do.... plus, superstition says that the flames beat nashville when i'm there... and godard will have a goal reviewed....

so, is that the go, then ? FC on friday night ?? if so, i'll see if i can reserve a table.... who's in ?

me, ST, STbro, leanne.... dave ? MG ? rob ?significant others ?

leanne said...

Yeah, I'll come for a bit, I think... FC seriously? I haven't been there either.

I don't think I'm putting words in his mouth, but I'm pretty sure Dave's out of town this weekend ;)

i checked the 'virtual arena' for reservations, to no avail. i'll call tomorrow... but i figure we could go there and if we can't get seats, we could always trip across the ave to the unicorn or the joyce... i'm a huge fan of the backup plan....
:)

Steal Thunder said...

We could always go to Flames Central for the first period, take in the atmosphere, and then jet for somewhere more reasonable...

walkinvisible said...

yep. true. FC it is.... game's at 730, we'll probably have to show around 7... i'll call tomorrow to see what we can get (if anything) reservationwise.

MetroGnome said...

I think you can only reserve seats in the grossly overpriced "Wildfire Grill".

i thought you'd never been ?? ;) well, the truth is out, now. flames central's wildfire grill is where MG goes on all his romantic evenings....
;)

whatever. i say we chance it... 7pm -ish friday, FC. if we can't get a seat, we go to the unicorn. that's my vote.
