Hornets247 Playoff Watch Party

Published: April 14, 2011

With the playoffs about to kick off, Hornets247 is getting the old crew back together. We’ll be hosting a playoff watch party, and there will of course be free booze (this is New Orleans, after all). We’re opting for a new location uptown this time, but don’t be scared. This place has more room, more tables, more pizza, and more… doors.

Who: Anyone wearing Hornets gear and cheering for the Hornets against the Los Angeles Lakers.

What: A playoff watch party with FREE BEER and pizza specials for Hornets fans, hosted by Hornets247’s Joe Gerrity and 42 (who has a real name you can learn if you come). All you have to do is take 5 seconds to sign up for our site, and you get FREE BEER, and a chance to win FREE PLAYOFF TICKETS. We’ll have a computer on site, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t figure out how to click the link right now. Life is hard.

Where: The Doors Pizza. It’s located at 7537 Maple Street, New Orleans, LA 70118.

When: Party starts at 1pm. Game starts at 2:30.

Why: Because we love you and want to hang out oh so very badly!


  • If you are wearing Lakers gear and/or cheering for the Lakers, you will not have access to the free beer.
  • The Hornets drinking game rules will be posted and on display.
  • 18 to enter, 21 to drink. I feel like I’m legally required to say that.
  • Did I mention there is a Hornets playoff watch party event on Facebook? Invite your friends. Tell them you “like” it Hornets247 style.
  • There are rumors that the Bee-zanies will be in attendance in all their glory. I’m being told they won’t be dressing up too much, but you can. Don’t be shy.
  • Two Hornets representatives will be in attendance. Thanks, Hornets!

If the Hornets beat the Lakers 4-0, I will… (click this and answer)

    How does the pizza taste at this place?

    Pizza tastes good….

    I’ll go tonight and let you know. I grew up in an italian community, so I’m a harsh critic. If the pizza ain’t square, it’s crap.

      Game 3 ticket winners will be announced before the weekend is over. Good luck!

    I might make this, but more than likely ill go to the other watch party at La Caretta cuz its in Mandy right by me

    • 420ftjesus

      April 14, 2011 at 1:28 pm

      Seantonio, I’m going to assume it’ll be worth the drive over.

      This could be the last watch party for a YEAR.

      Gotta think about it, dude.

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 14, 2011 at 2:21 pm

        Killing me man, its a Sunday lol…….aaaaah! I’ll talk to some my friends over here about it, see if i can get one of these clowns to drive.

        Good man. All you can do is try.

        Err on the side of responsibility.

    I’ll be there. Posted it on my fb profile and HoopDat’s fb page as well. I love the blatant anti-Laker rules, very well done fellas.

    • RobertM320

      April 14, 2011 at 3:17 pm

      Second on the anti-Laker rules. I’m thinking about offering a bounty for anyone caught selling tickets to a Lakers fan for games 3 and 4.

      Not anything physical. Maybe we could create a Facebook Wall of Shame page and post photos of anyone we see at Games 3 and 4 wearing Lakers gear. Then, send it out to everyones friends. You know somehow it’ll get to their friends as well. Shame, shame, shame, if you go to a Hornets playoff game in NO and cheer for the opponents.

        If you cheer for the Lakers in this matchup and are a Louisiana native you are scum. And probably have some serious self confidence issues.

    I’ll see if I can make it out from Maurepas in Livingston to this watch party. Sounds like it will be fun. Hopefully I will have something positive to think about on the two hour drive back home.

    The hornets party sounds so totally un-pc. I love it!
    Alas, due to great distances (geographical, not cultural) I cannot attend (though I will be there in spirit lol). Cheer on the bugs versus the KOBEnistas!

    Tanti saluti a tutti 🙂

    The location is actually just a block away from my place so I’ll swing by. And the pizza is surprisingly good.

    • 420ftjesus

      April 14, 2011 at 5:15 pm

      Sweet. Saves me a taste-testing trip.

      I wonder if we can get the 5 Hornets blog families there?

      • Joe Gerrity

        April 14, 2011 at 6:06 pm

        I’m working on it. Just asked ATH and HH.

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 14, 2011 at 6:22 pm

        HH wooooo, ill be sure to bring headgear, lord knows ill be fighting someone.

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 14, 2011 at 6:23 pm

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 14, 2011 at 6:26 pm

        LOL my bad for spamming i retract my 2 previous statements. dont want to start shizz with anyone from another site or start back up shit. we are all hornets fans and we can unite to hate the lakers as one. Peace, love and good will to all hornets fans.

      • Joe Gerrity

        April 14, 2011 at 6:28 pm

        Not sure what you mean.

        HH= Hornets Hype for me.

    It’s going to be a short party. the Lakers win game one and 2. Then the get lazy and loose game 3. Phil lites a fire under them and the win 4 and 5. Lakers in 5.

    • RobertM320

      April 14, 2011 at 7:00 pm

      Dang, 18 hours after the season ends, and you guys are on our site already?

      Cant wait until next season (whenever that may be) when that roster has to be dismantled due to a hard cap! It’ll be a happy day in NBA land for the majority of basketball fans. I won’t expect to see any banners going up in Staples for a long, long time. Unless, of course, the Clippers win one.

      Don’t believe me? How many championships have the 49ers won since the salary cap? And I’ll enjoy every minute of every Lakers fans misery.

      I think this particular party was going to end after the first game is over. What the he’ll do you mean,”it’s going to be a short party.”

    • m-W

      The word I was looking for tonight with the Kobe debacle in Sacramento was Hubris. Read some Greek Myths, son. It doesn’t work out well. Ever.

      • 420ftjesus

        April 14, 2011 at 9:40 pm

        Ding! Tell him what he’s won…

    • Joe Gerrity

      April 14, 2011 at 9:57 pm

      That would be an incredibly long party. Would we get to take breaks? Can we sleep?

      Worst trash talking I’ve seen so far in the playoffs.

      • 420ftjesus

        April 14, 2011 at 10:14 pm

        I think he’s showing respect for our party powers.

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 14, 2011 at 10:19 pm

        Dis louisiana baby, nobody party like us

      • 420ftjesus

        April 14, 2011 at 10:23 pm

        Yeah. Hurricane party. The end.

        Think the Lakers can stop a party when a storm the size of Ohio can’t?


        Come on, headshots, we’ve got room for one more.

    • RobertM320

      April 15, 2011 at 2:42 pm

      Do they even know how to spell in LaLa Land? I could hardly understand it myself. “Phil lites”? Is this like a cigarette? Does he come in Menthol and 100’s as well?

      “Then the ___ get lazy”? Do you mean the team, the fans, or the coach? Please use complete sentences, not Left Coast Speak.

    Sounds like fun, sucks that I cannot go. Lucky for me the drinking age here is 18.

    • Aussie Hornet

      April 15, 2011 at 7:22 am

      Same here James, just became legal here, but would be sipping on lemonade for the next 3 years in the US

      • Hornet Seantonio

        April 15, 2011 at 10:02 am

        I doubt ud be sipping lemonade in Louisiana 😉

      • Joe Gerrity

        April 15, 2011 at 12:06 pm

        New Orleans has… liberal drinking laws for those who are 18.

      • 420ftjesus

        April 15, 2011 at 12:55 pm

        I can honestly say I’ve been patronizing a particular bar since I was 14.

  15. sceldred

    April 15, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    I’ll be there.

  16. Holy Cow

    April 15, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    I’ll be there. Looking forward to meeting the great folks of Hornets247 in person.
