DC Does It Right!
So this past weekend I found myself in the DC/Arlington area, visiting a friend of mine. I knew I wouldn’t be back in NYC in time for the Phins vs Saints game, so I went online and did a search to see if there was a DC equivalent to DolfansNYC, and I was psyched to find out that there was! Not only do they have a group of fans that get together for the games, they are an official fan club, fully recognized by the bar, who reserves the top floor just for the Phins fans! They have decorations on the walls and also conduct raffles. They even have their own “Igor” who is the designated first-down shouter for “That’s another Miami Dolphinsâ€¦..” And, of course, they play the fight song after each touchdown. It really felt like a home away from home. The people were cool, the atmosphere was fun and the bar (Hard Times CafÃ© in Clarendon) was awesome. (They are famous for their chili.)
I met the president of their club, Zach, and we’ll be linking to his site and he’ll link to ours. NYC and DC are so close to each other and a lot of our members and theirs may find themselves looking for places to watch the games when they are visiting the other city. Look no further guys. And welcome to anyone from the DC/Arlington fan club that would like to stop in and enjoy a game with DolfansNYC!
Check out their website here and check out a little bit of video I shot below to give you a feel for the place.
