Sure, we may not know exactly when the NHL season will start, but as hockey fans, we can start getting in shape with our own training camp right now.
So I am happy to announce the first OTF Meetup, an opportunity for all of us to get together over drinks & food at one of the finest sports bars in all the land!
When: Tuesday, September 4 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
What You Need To Do: RSVP via our Facebook Event. If you're not on Facebook, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) separately, but I need to give Sam's a heads-up on how many people we're expecting, so please RSVP!
Sam's is going to make a fantastic venue for events like this, and we're looking to do some viewing parties there during the season. They are regular winners in the Best of Nashville, and just finished 2nd in the 2012 Toast of Music City poll for Best Sports Bar. I attended a recent Nashcocktail event there and can vouch for the quality of the atmosphere, the drink specials, and the grub - all are outstanding!
Eat, Drink, Be Merry, and Win Stuff
There will be some light appetizers available to get us started (courtesy of Sam's), in addition to drink specials and some nifty giveaways, including a gift card to Harlow Salon (that's where the Preds Dancers & Ice Girls go, don't ya know) and a rather cool bit of Nashville Predators memorabilia that I'm chipping in.
And, in order to reward reading comprehension for those of you who have made it this far, let's kick off the festivities with a giveaway. I will award a FREE $10 gift card to Sam's (you can use it at any of their 3 locations) which I will hand out randomly to anyone who leaves a comment on this post containing the magic code word OTFSAMS by midnight Central tonight (August 27, 2012). Just one entry per person, please.
So who's ready for a meetup???
