Raise a Cheer for Free Beer!
There's No Shame in Being Cheesy
Last Wednesday evening, hundreds attended a Pupusa Popup held by Chef Jose Andres's Think Food Group in Penn Quarter. Chef Andres is partnering with Levy Concessions to oversee food at Audi Stadium, and has promised that RFK's beloved pupusas will also be present at the new stadium.
In order to honor Elias and Maria Polio, the family behind the pupusa stands, Andres held a special celebratory event, giving away delicious free pupusas to all in attendance at their ThinkFoodLab in D.C. Our Screaming Eagles Nest Crew was out in force, waving our flags, banging our drums, and in general having a good time. Thanks to all those who came out to join us - we hope you had as much fun as we did!
We Weren't Kidding About the Free Beer
Fair Winds Brewing Company has made us an offer we cannot refuse - let our members drink at their taproom for free! Who's in?
Tuesday, February 20th, 4:00 - 5:30pm
There are only two requirements:
1) Be a current 2018 Screaming Eagles member
2) Wear any Screaming Eagles or DC United gear
We will be using tailgate rules: show our Tailgate Guru a government-issued ID so he can verify you're over 21, let us verify that you meet the two requirements for free beer, get your hand stamped, and show your stamped hand to the bartender to get beer. Easy!
As with mid-week tailgates, food will not be provided. There will be a food truck; you are also welcome to bring food or ask bartenders for a delivery menu. Fair Winds has soda and water for those not partaking, and you can bring in any non-alcoholic drinks you'd like.
Beer will stop being free promptly at 5:30pm - even if you are in line waiting for a refill. Be sure to heed any warnings and expect a rush as the deadline draws near! The good news is that SE members will receive a 10% discount if opening a tab at 5:31pm.
Free beer is only for glasses and tasters of beer served by Fair Winds staff. It does not apply to growlers, cans, or bottles, which are illegal to drink on the premises.
No exceptions to the requirements. If you bring a friend, they must pay for their own beer, or join if they are not a member. Expect to be cut off if you are caught trying to sneak them a beer. Really, why not just sign up for membership?
Unlike at tailgates, the staff at Fair Winds will cut you off if you have had too much to drink. Please drink responsibly.
Get On the Bus!
As the drama surrounding the planned move of Columbus Crew SC to Austin continues to unfold, we of the Screaming Eagles would like to show our support for #SaveTheCrew. That's why we're taking a ROAD TRIP!
That's right, we're headed to Columbus! The Crew hosts DCU at MAPFRE stadium on Saturday, March 24th. Enough of you have expressed interest in attending that our King of the Road has reserved a bus, and we're hitting the road!
Interested? Better hurry - only a dozen or so seats on the bus are left! You can buy your game tickets here, but if you want a seat on the bus, be sure to email Jimi to reserve your seat. This may be your last chance to see the Crew in their native habitat - don't miss out!
Home is Where the Heart is
As we eagerly anticipate the start of D.C. United's season and the opening of Audi Field, we also have plenty planned for the next few months. Please follow us on social media for all the latest. We're even on Instagram now (better late than never), at @screamingeaglesdc.
The 2018 season is approaching, and we are delighted to announce that the Perch and Perch Plus at Audi Field are SOLD OUT! The Nest is selling fast, so grab your seats for Section 135 while you can! Please send our Ticketmistress a note at email@example.com if you plan to sit with us in The Nest at Audi Field.
Sign up for 2018 membership, and enjoy making more memories! In the meantime, enjoy a few of our favorites:
Our Team. Each Other. Our Community.
