How do we feel about meeting up somewhere in Buffalo to watch an away game with some light heavy drinking?  Maybe on a weeknight when people don't have other commitments?

Although I doubt I can make anything in Buffalo, the 1st round is on me.

If I was in Buffalo or in town for a visit I'd be up for that.  The only SS'er that I've met is Drunkard, but as it would seem appropriate, I was three sheets to the wind when I ran into him.

This meetup should have happened before the season started then.

Just before.

Amherst Ale House is good for a game.  Millersport and N French-ish off 990

And owned by a shirttail relative, too.  But that puts the southtowners out, though.  I figure that Buffalo has the best chance of being accessible to the largest amount of people.

Fat Bob's?

Cobblestone, but I'd check if they're open for away games (nice big screen put in)

I'd be game, but odds are really slim I'll be in Buffalo on a weekday for quite awhile. It's possible a weekend would work.

If it's late March or early April, I'd most likely be in.  Prior to that, way too many youth sports commitments.

Fat Bob's might not be a bad idea at all!  Long bar, food, some measure of anonymity.  Good call.

You can make it down to Virginia place.  Have a beer or two; no one has to stay the whole night.  Chz has a good, central idea there.

You don't have to wear your Depends.  If you need to, fine, but I do know this place and it does have bathrooms.


For those unfamiliar with Fat Bob's, it's a barbecue joint.  For those who have lived in the South, well, umm, it's a pretty good mock-up of a barbecue joint.  It's on Virginia Place (NOT Virginia Street, which intersects; that's important); right next to a bar called Mother's, where Mogilny used to pound vodka and smoke packs of cigarettes at a time.  It is not my favorite place in the world, but it isn't my least favorite by any means, either, and it's a great suggestion. Lots of beers, lots of whiskies, and generally a good time.  And a long bar with lots of televisions.

What say to the Ottawa game a week from tomorrow? Come for the "HI!  My Name Is Eleven" stickers (I promise that won't happen.  I mean it.); stay for a period or two?

EDIT:  And oh, as long as your significant other is ok with the fact that you spend dorky amounts of time on a hockey message board, bring him or her, too.

Thanks. The problem is really that I'm far -ish away and depending on the night I probably wont be able to come.  I'll try to if it's possible.

Understood.  This is short notice and maybe more geared towards the locals.
