Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
Does anyone have a single ticket to sell for Saturday's game against the Habs? I'd like something in the lower bowl if possible. Send me a PM.
Ben's Chili Bowl: Overrated garbage or must try if it's your first time in DC?
The chili is so-so; the thing to go for is the half-smokes.
Coming down from Canada for a game
Hi everyone, I'm coming from Toronto to watch the caps play the Blackhawks with my fiancÃ©. She's a caps fan and really wanted to see a game. I'm driving down, looks like we're staying in Alexandria/Airport area. Is there an easy way to the Verizon centre without driving? Any good places to eat/drink before the game? We're planning on shopping/sightseeing the Saturday. Any recommendations for what to do/see? Will I need to drive or is walking fine?
I would recommend re-reading through some of this thread, specifically post #11 on page 1, for eat/drink options. The VC is located in a great area surrounded by many good bars and restaurants. It really depends what you're looking for, i.e. high-end, bar food, etc. The Verizon Center is located in Chinatown so there are some really good dive Chinese places near the arena. As far as getting to the VC, it's located at the Gallery Place/Chinatown metro station. The stadium is literally on top of the station so it's pretty convenient. Uber/Lyft are also prevalent in this area and will only cost you $12-15 one way from the Alexandria/airport area. Walking around the area is fine.
If it's your first time in DC, I highly recommend walking around the National Mall and seeing some of the monuments, museums, White House, tourist-y stuff. Tons of history within walking distance. Hope that helps! Enjoy.
Hi, iÂ´m a devils fan from Sweden coming to Washington for a week with my partner and our baby. 6-13 February and i`m lucky, caps have 3 home games that week.
I have some questions.
1: Easiest way to get downtown from Dulles airport? Taxi?
2: Is it any seats that are all inclusive (food, softdrink) in the arena?
3: I have other times used stubhub for watching nhlgames, but now when iÂ´m searching there all tickets are delivered by mail? are e-tickets or what its called banned or something? If so it will make it harder to see the games, i often buy the tickets same day when im sure i will attend.
Thanks in advance/ Jens
Hi, Jensi! So glad you're coming to see the Caps!
1. Uber or lyft are the easiest way from Dulles--these are apps for your phone. It's not inexpensive, but it's worth it.
2. They don't have all-iclusive seats, but they have family packs. I've never used one, but they are probably a decent deal.
3. The NHL (or at least the Caps) has shut stubhub out of the digital ticket resale business. It's a point of much frustration for many of us season ticket holders. But you can find digital tickets on ticketmaster.com.
Have a blast!
Here are some ticket options with food.
The Eithad lounge is solid.
There's also a bus that runs from Dulles to the Silver Line metro.
I'm pretty sure the Acela club (if it's still called the Acela club) has all-inclusive options. I may have overindulged there once or twice before.
Driving down to DC on Friday 2/24 for the McJesus game. Can arrive maybe 11am-12pm. Was hoping to catch morning skate (will they even have one?) but it'll be too late presumably. Is there anything fun going on around then that we can take the kids (8yo) to? Maybe something else going on at Kettler or downtown? We already did all the monuments last time. Was hoping for some festival, etc. but a quick search came up empty.
My family of five will be near D.C. traveling from Williamsburg on vacation in the first week of April. Should I get tickets on stub hub and park at the venue? Where should I sit? Helpful advice needed.
well there isnt a lot of parking (to clarify, theres underground lots but your also competing against everyday workers in dc) so take the metro
Where to go for the best place to buy caps gear? Team store in the arena or Kettler or are they all about the same?
Found, agree with kicker; don't drive, take Metro. But as far as buying tix, because the Caps eliminated PDF printing it's difficult to sell on stubhub now. Look there but also check Ticketmaster.
Not sure about the PDF printing part but there are tons of tickets on StubHub for every game right now. I just bought a pair last week.
Alright, since I missed the game for my birthday, I'll try to make a trip to DC to see a playoff game. Regular season ends April 10th and I have 4 days off for Easter (April 14th to 17th). Does anybody know the dates for game 1 and 2 assuming we have home ice?
Not set yet.
They won't announce that til after the season ends. Also the caps have to schedule around the Wizards who also will have home court advantage
The first round series will likely start April 12, 13, or 14 if past years are any indication. Game 2 is usually two days after, but could change depending on conflicts with the arenas involved.
For your dates I'd imagine being able to go Game 2 for sure, possibly even Game 1.
Damn, I forgot about the Wizards. Here in Montreal, scheduling is very straightforward since the Canadiens are the only pro sports team in the building. I imagine I could catch a game during one of those days.
I hope so, I don't want to buy tickets and get screwed over like last time. Ticketmaster doesn't allow me to sell them back, so I'll buy my tickets when I reach the city only.
we can say for sure the game wont be on wed the 12th as the red hot chili peppers are performing that night
So, game 1 would be next Thursday probably? In any case, it means game 2 will be Friday or Saturday, which I could definitely catch.
tbh id say friday/sunday if i had to guess
