Watch Party Saturday

smokin-joes-upstairs-bar2

As if we didn’t have enough going on this week we have a watch party on Saturday. After tifo painting in the morning come join us at Smokin’ Joes in the South Side as we cheer on the Hounds in Charlotte. Game starts at 7, party starts at 6. The usual food and drink specials, including a free pint of the Golden Hound after each Hounds goal, still apply.

FAIR WARNING: We’ve been at capacity the last couple watch parties. If you’re not a fan of cramped spaces the watch party may not be for you. Also don’t expect to sit, there’s very little to begin with and it goes quick.

See yinz there!

Woke up this morning feeling fine
I’ve got the Riverhounds on my mind
Lilley’s got the boys playing the way they should

Just like a couple weeks ago playing against Indy was a high scoring affair, but it took a half to get going. The first half didn’t leave a lot to get excited about. The Hounds controlled play pretty well and had more dangerous chances than Indy, but weren’t able to convert anything. The only thing really of note was seeing the distinct playing style of each side of the Hounds…
