Reminder: #RMNBParty6 is on Saturday Night!

We are a little over 24 hours away from #RMNBParty6. The following GIFs shall communicate my excitement.

Now that that’s out of the way, I have some important stuff to tell you.

  • Here is the Facebook event!
  • RFD is located at 810 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001. Here’s a link to Google Maps. Here’s a link to Bing Maps if you’re weird.
  • RFD is like one block from Verizon Center. If you take the metro to Chinatown, you’ll be 99% of the way there.
  • We’ll have our own private room after 8 PM, which will be awesome.
  • If you’re ordering food (tater tots!), be aware that ticket times could get backed up if everyone orders at once.
  • The game starts at 10:30 and should go until about 1 am.
  • Most of the parking decks around Chinatown close around 1 am. If you’re driving, take note of closing time.
  • The metro also shuts down at 3 am. Plan accordingly!
  • The RFD kitchen will close at 1 am. The whole bar closes at 3 am. If you’re still partying at 3 am, I don’t even know, man.
  • The party is 21 and up only. Sorry to our younger readers. We’ll hang this summer– promise!
  • You don’t have to RSVP for the Facebook event. We just made that to make it easier to tell your friends.
  • We, the RMNB crew, will be getting dinner somewhere in the neighborhood before the party. It’ll be a casual thing, but let us know if you want to hang.
  • At RMNB Party 1 (pre-hashtag), we invented a new shot (I can’t remember it now; weird how that works.) We should invent a new shot at #RMNBParty6 as well. Inspired by Nate Ewell and your boy Dan Steinberg, the “Perimeter Shot” seems to be the likely name. Your suggestions are welcome.
  • If you’re following along on social media– like a dweeb– you can find all the action at #RMNBParty6.
  • Chris Gordon will be taking photos on and off through the night. Track him down and make funny faces. I (Peter) will be shooting some video too.
  • We’ll have our regularly scheduled game recap up too, but it may be awful …er than usual.
  • Ian likes to hug. Peter does not.

One final note, and this is good advice both for the party and life:

See you at the party!

 
  • Sara

    One of the gazillion reasons I need to move closer to the city. Boo-hiss-boo for being 2.5hrs away. =(

    what to wear…

    what to wear…?

  • Jonathan Garcia

    The Perimeter Shot – equal parts sprite, triple sec and spiced rum. Tastes like cream soda.

    Or, if we want something more appropriate of this season, put a few drops of tabasco sauce in a shot of tequila and have someone slap you in the face.

  • Philip Young

    something reminiscent of the washington hockey capitals ice playing squad

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/ Peter Hassett

    t-shirt > shirt and tie? I have no idea how to do these things

  • Owen Johnson

    You can make it.

  • Owen Johnson

    RMNB HoltBeast shirt. Cheer him on hoping he keeps that bench warm.

  • http://twitter.com/kat326 Rachel Cohen

    I have a bow tie with hockey masks on it you can borrow. ;)

  • Thomas Conner

    Three piece suit and red tie a la Adam Oates

  • Thomas Conner

    Is there gonna be a separate recap for #RMNBparty6? I’d read it…

  • Kate Jamison

    I think my Swedes on Bikes T may have to make its second appearance of the season.

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com Ian Oland

    yesssssss

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com Ian Oland

    Yeah, we’ll have a photo post hopefully Sunday.

  • Roman Z.

    Any chance this could get streamed using Twitch lol?

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    even better just come on a bike dressed in a blue suit!

  • Sarah

    That’s already a thing (minus the face slap, I guess) – prairie fires!

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    I vote that we make some sort of name tags. This way I can finally put faces to the outrageous bloggers, internet jockeys and hockey nerds that make up the RMNB universe. Actually better yet, we can see what Peter looks like in real life, this picture serves as a guestimation :)

  • Brouwer Rangers

    If I may suggest a dinner location, selected especially for Ian Oland.

  • Kate Jamison

    Hey now, I leave dressing like a man to the men in this world!

  • Kate Jamison

    Only if you insist, Ian!!

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    A diner/bar trek of epic proportions

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    Touche, what would swedish female bikers wear lol…

  • Brouwer Rangers

    A perimeter shot should be just water because of how nonthreatening they are, right? Let’s do water shots, everyone! Wooo partayyyyyyy!

  • Brouwer Rangers

    Nearest Qdoba is FIVE TIMES FARTHER AWAY. For shame, Qdoba. For shame.

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    So the Brouwer Rangers are one of those, “I’m only drinking water tonight,” dudes?

  • Sara

    I’ve actually been debating it. I’ve spent 2 of the past 3 weekends in the city for games My liver is marching thru my body as I’m typing this- recruiting other organs for full scale protest if I don’t rest so we’ll have to see how that plays out. :)

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com Ian Oland

    No, Rangers. We’re not doing this right now.

  • Myan

    I just looked up tickets for Nashville to Reagan National…they’re only $780 each.

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com Ian Oland

    That is actually a picture of him.

  • Jonathan Garcia

    They have to move their Megazord by 1 am.

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    I knew it, he may have even been a Tri Lam…

  • Igor Kleyner

    Since it’s RUSSIAN Machine party, and we are talking about shots, here is all you need to know: traditional Russian shot glasses (стопки) are 100ml, about twice the size of regular shot glasses. Oh and Russians do not have a special term for “doing shots” – probably because that’s the only way to drink vodka properly.

  • Hockey mom

    Someone please do me a favor and take Ian to District Taco while he is “in town”!! If I was in a grave, I’d be turning over in it everytime he talks about Qdoba or Chipotle!! Please help me!!!

    GAG

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/ Peter Hassett

    see you there

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/ Peter Hassett
  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/ Peter Hassett

    I could actually do that

  • Chris Cerullo

    I will drown my sorrows of only being 18 in a boatload of NCAA tournament madness

  • Shaun Phillips

    Cheaper than a flight for me. Maybe one of these days…

  • Shaun Phillips

    Have fun everyone! Wish we could be there. Maybe one of these days. Btw, poor burritos losing to the smart guys.

  • Mash

    Here’s an idea that both Canadian and Russians would like for the Perimeter shot = Vodka shots chasing with Molson beer. Btw any ideas on where the pregame meal is going to be since I’m coming from Charles Town, WV and will probably be a wise idea to eat before I start drinking.

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    So I have been trying to coerce my non-hockey friends to join me in the RMNB romp on Saturday Night at RFD…The conversation goes something like this…

    Patrick: So guys, Saturday night wanna go to the RMNB viewing party for Capitals Vs. Ducks at RFD
    Friends: Umm what is RMNB?

    Patrick: It is a capitals hockey blog filled with funny articles, information sessions and has a great fan base of followers
    Friends: So like an internet-friends party?
    Patrick: Yeah!.
    Friends: *Crickets*

    Any suggestions on how to convince these capitals “noobs?”

  • Sarah

    District Taco is the bomb.

  • Myan

    You guys should plan another party at the start of next season. I’ll be an Old Town resident in 6 weeks!

    HEMO! *swoon* #gaysharks

  • MuzzMuzzington

    I’m not surprised. Since moving to Texas I have seen some weird Mexican drinks. AT&T his clam bar, for example, they will put hot sauce, tomato juice, clam juice, and beer in a mug. Then they throw a ton of black pepper in it and drink it.

  • Owen Johnson

    Been resting my liver for a few weeks. Gonna change that tomorrow.

  • Michael

    D’oh! If I was only living in the area…

  • JustinC71

    Where is this dinner to be held? I too like food and as a native Texan would suggest Hill Country BBQ just down 7th street!

  • Eric

    I’ll just be in my jersey but its going to be fun!!!!

  • selftitled85

    When I studied abroad in Russia – 2005…crap I am old – I had an all night drinking session with the Russian students we were staying with. After all the other Americans bowed out, leaving me as the last American standing, one of the Russians looked at me and said, “you…you drink like a Russian. But you look like an American.” One of the finest drinking moments of my life.

    Of course the next morning was filled with the worst hangover ever but oh well! Worth it.

  • Langway

    Dammitsomuch. I really wanted to make this party, but too many reasons why I can’t attend despite being a short drive from NoVa. I hope you guys are going to have more of these. I was looking forward to watching a game with some of my fellow RMNB readers. Mostly I just want to someday meet the RMNB crew in person, just shake their hands and say thanks. Thanks for providing thorough analyses, keeping us informed, and entertaining us throughout the season and particularly though every rough patch.

  • Jonah

    aww thats too bad under -21s arent allowed
    on a completely unrelated note, how bribe-happy is the person at the door?

  • Jonah

    what channel is NCAA on tonight?
    #highschoolprobs

  • http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/ Peter Hassett

    For crying out loud
    All I’m asking is that
    Kids who want to
    Enjoy our company, just wait

    It’ll be your 21st birthday before you know it
    Dude

    Top left of each game says what network it’s on

  • Jared

    Myan, we’ll have our own party here in Nashville at the Caps/Preds game next Sunday!

  • Jonah

    i think a perimeter shot should be giving someone a glass of water, and its actually vodka. you think its not gonna be a problem, and suddenly you’re choking on the floor!

  • Myan

    Nice! I’m going to that game!

  • Owen Johnson

    BTW. I drove through Nashville in June. Its a beautiful city.

  • Jared

    Nice! A bunch of my friends and I are going as well! I wore an Ovechkin jersey to Sam’s Sports Bar after the Caps beat the Preds back in December, and the waiter wouldn’t serve me a buffalo chicken wrap.
