    Don't the Caps usually market some free pre-season tickets? Haven't seen any offers yet.

    Mods, rules say posts must have tickets below face, so here they are.

    2 tickets for 10/7 opener. $50 OBO. Best offer, for real. Trying to recover a little bit...

    Section 413 Row H. From Monumental Account. Personal issue so I cannot go (women, man...)

    PM me if interested!

    Hey All, guess this is the right spot. Heading into DC for the Avs game, any suggestions on good spots to park that are located close enough to the game but easy to get out of after? Looking to get there early in the day to see some of DC and head to bars too.

    Looks like this thread doesn't see a lot of action but trying anyway.

    Anyone know of a good place that might show the Pens/Leafs game on Saturday night? It's on NHL Network and CBC it looks like.

    Post on Hawks Board GDT from yesterday "Lot's of empty seats in Landover, what do people do there? Watch basketball or other?". I don't post on other team's boards, so I didn't break it to him.

    I'd park at a metro station for the day and take it to the Chinatown stop, or somewhere else you want to visit first and then Chinatown for the game.

    Best Bars to Watch Hockey in Washington, D.C.

    They might give you some funny looks if you have to ask them specifically to put the Penguins game on TV though :laugh:

    Metro is definitely easiest, unless you're close enough to Lyft/Uber. All of the lots are underground so getting out of them can be a pain. If you want to drive yourself I might suggest checking out Parking Panda... they allow you to reserve a parking space in a lot or a garage.

    Hi!

    I know these same questions has propably been answered more than few times in this same topic earlier, but would like to check for customized tips before reading it through. So decided to just ask myself anyways..

    Im a big time Caps-fan coming from Finland to see the Caps play Canadiens mid through january. I actually was in D.C for one and a half day back in november 2012 just to see a home game but the lockout ruined that one. Got to see the walls of Verizon atleast..

    So this is second time in the area and first time actually making it to the game. Coming up with a friend, just for one day. We are taking the train from NY, will be there at noon and stay the night, until we leave next morning back to NY.

    Would like to hear if there is "must-to-see or experience" for a Capitals-fan or why not as a tourist aswell.? Done all the normal stuff during my last visit, white house etc, so mainly looking something outside the box :)

    Like, if there is only one place you would recommend for one day visitors where to : eat, have couple beers, see something you dont get to see every day or in a tourist-photos, get some special Capitals hometown-feeling from.? Always better if you can combine most of the clicks into one spot, as there is really limited time to do much of anything.

    If you could come in the morning, I would suggest watching a practice at Kettler. I've had as much fun watching practice at Kettler as I have watching the game at the Verizon Center.

    As for the city, I'll let the DC residents answer that one :).

    From the little research that I did, I noticed that the Caps changed their ticket pricing and made the first 2(maybe 3) rows around the lower bowl “premium”seats and gave those ticket holders club access. Is this true? And do seats in section 100 row E qualify as “premium” seats?

    How many/which museums did you go to during your last visit? The Smithsonian is really DC's best set of attractions, with the added bonus that they're all free. Pick out whichever museum(s) interest you the most and visit them. Personally, my favorite is the Air & Space Museum. If you don't mind paying for museums, there's also the Spy Museum, Newseum, and Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    If you go to a museum be prepared to deal with dozens of school buses full of kids in matching t-shirts clogging up the show

    Since you said you're looking for beer I recommend Right Proper Brewing if you want local beer. It's near a Metro stop and is a little bit away from the downtown area so you'll have a little more of a neighborhood feel to it. Fun place to stop before or after the game.

    Bluejacket is another option that I've heard is good but I can't personally vouch for it.

    Hi everyone!

    going to be in the area next weekend and figured I would take in Caps/Blues on Sunday. Do you know if stubhub is the way to go to get tickets? or should I look at a different avenue?

    Bluejacket is a great spot, as is that entire area by Nats park. Whaley's is solid too but not exactly your typical pregame spot.

    Thanks for the intakes!

    I think ill look into finding the Rigt Proper Brewing or/and Blujeacket for a pit stop. Museums are propably gonna be a pass this time, as we have less than 24 hours in the city and have a lot of hockey and some drinking to do. :)

    Anybody selling their tickets for Sunday's game against Vegas? It's my fiancé's birthday and she's been wanting to go to a game for a while.

    Hey folks new member(live in Montgomery County), Wife and I have been Caps fan for the last oh 4-5 years, get to a few games a year, watch them religiously on TV.

    Hoping to get some suggestions about good, ok great places in DC to watch a Caps game?

    While watching the post game last night the wife and I noticed they showed a bar with alot of Caps fans cheering at the Ovi score and we thought that would be a nice environment to catch the game tomorrow in.

    Looking for a place with a decent amount of fans (not super crowded so that you can't see what's going on), good food, good energy, etc.

    Any suggestions?
