Hornets Watch Party TODAY

Published: December 13, 2010

The first official Hornets247 watch party of the year is TODAY at The Extreme Sports Bar and Grille, located at 535 Tchoupitoulas. Get there early for some live Hornets conversation with your best online friends. Game starts at 6:30, but I’ll be there around 5.

We are giving away tickets, jerseys, signed memorabilia, and beer.

The Details (RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook, please!) This is how you do it really fast. And PLEASE tell your friends/coworkers/interns/employees/neighbors/bosses/lovers that we want them in attendance.

What: The First Hornets247 Watch Party of the year to benefit the Save Our Hornets foundation. Yes, people getting together watching games on TV is good for us all.

…is in it for you: Free beer, drink specials, cool prizes (including tickets), fun contests, a chance to meet all your fellow Hornets fans, some Hornets reps, and maybe some other Hornets personnel. And you get to watch what should be a good game against those three guys who play on Miami. I think their names are Larry, Moe and Curly, but I could be mistaken.

Where: Extreme Sports Bar and Grille at 535 Tchoupitoulas. I used to live in the Warehouse District, and I probably still would if this place had opened up a few years ago. It’s a new sports bar with air hockey, pool, foosball, a boxing game, and a ton of TV’s and projectors to show our New Orleans Hornets. Good wings, too. I spent some time in upstate NY, so I know a good wing when I eat one. Definitely worth checking out, even if you can’t make the party.

When: Monday, December 13th from 5:00 to 10:00pm. The game starts at 6:30, but I’ll be there at 5:00 if anyone wants to come by a little earlier to start talking Hornets. There could be some interesting things said early on.

Why: Because we need to get this party started. The Hornets are playing great, yet they are almost dead last in attendance. There are rumors that the state and the team will come to a new lease agreement (which they haven’t started talking about yet), but who knows what that will mean. Fact is we need to get attendance up, and we can do that by increasing the exposure that the Hornets have in the local community. The free beer just happens to be a nice addition.

So please come and join us for the first watch party of the year. It’s really important that we pack the house and build momentum going forward. Sorry again about the short notice, but a while ago I predicted a watch party in early December (the 13th is early in my book) and I didn’t want to disappoint.

If anyone would like to help out a little with things, please just get there a little early and let me know.
