Hornets247 Watch Party (With Free Beer!)

Published: April 25, 2011

Yet again Hornets247 is throwing a Watch Party for your New Orleans Hornets. Did you really think we would let an opportunity to have a fiesta pass without capitalizing on it? You must not know me (Joe) very well. Pressuring my peers to get together en masse to drink and watch the Hornets dominate the Lakers is kind of my favorite thing to do.

We won’t be buying 4 kegs again (apparently we were very thirsty that night), but the Doors is hooking up 1 dollar drafts or 4 dollar pitchers, along with a shot special of some kind, and the same pizza deal. It’s going to be a blast.

But wait, you said free beer! What kind of scam is this?

If you come wearing Hornets gear, Hornets 247 will buy your first beer for you.

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

What: A playoff watch party with 4$ Pitchers, shot specials of some sort, and 10$ 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 access to all the specials, and a chance to win prizes and tickets for next year.

Where: The Doors Pub, 7537 Maple Street, New Orleans, LA 70118

When: This Tuesday. Party starts at 8:30. Game Starts at 9:30. Celebration probably around 11:45 or so.

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

    LETS DO THIS! Hive was loud last night. Except for the lakers fans behind me who were very quiet after the first quarter. I made sure to show them my terrible towel very often!

    Last time I didn’t get pizza and regretted it. I got it the first time and was quite happy, even if it’s thin and round.

    I would love to party with y’all, we know how to party here in Croatia, but I’ll root in front of my TV cheer like a monkey when he sees a banana (the whole year was the same, especially the series) and hope for the best prepare for the worst…

    GO NOLA!!!!!!!!!!

      For some reason, whenever I read ‘cro’ something, an image of Mirko left high kicking someone into another realm jumps into my mind.

      Cheers my fellow Hornets fan who would love to attend this watch party but can’t.

      Perhaps a live video chat for chaps who cannot attend the watch party? Tinychat is free and easy to setup. And maybe the guys at the watch party can also join in so we can also see 42 (who has a real name you can learn if you come) running around again.

        lol, Bug!

        Or, maybe someone can set up a Skype feed. Time for Hornets247.com to be on the cutting edge of technology as it pertains to NBA team blogs.

        Toni Kukoc, Drazen Petrovic, Dino Radja, Roko Ukic does not come to mind? Remember these names, or google them…Great basketball players…

        It should my friend…

        It will be 4:30 AM when the game begins here in Croatia, I’ll watch it, Hell I’ll go to sleep at 9:30 PM, so I can get some sleep (and be able to live the next day, go out in the evening etc) and go out and go to my basketball practice in the morning, I’m only doing it because of the heart and soul and will of this team and they have no fear because C P 3 is here…

        Oh, of course. But they never had the prefix Cro added to their name like Mirko CroCop, who is also one fine fighter. 🙂

        Hey Rob, I checked on the CBS gamecast last game and man was it a mess. Hope you shut up a lot of trash talkers in there going on about CP3 leaving and the Hornets not having a shot at winning the series.

        That’d be great Joe!
