There seems to be a lot going on around here these days.  Between the copious number of sporting events, birthday parties, maintenance issues and personal stuff,  I literally feel like...

The NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup has been great for us as both series have been very competitive and enjoyable to watch. What's been great about both series is that practically every game in both series have been close up to the very end and drawing emotions from fans of all of the teams as well as sucking in the casual observers.  What more could you want from a championship series?

Miami took a two games to one lead over the Dallas Mavericks after a great road win in last night's game.  Once again it came down to the last possession to determine the winner of this game.  The way this series has been going,  I can easily see it going the full seven games.  Not bad for business, that's for sure!

As for the Stanley Cup, Vancouver has a two games to none lead over Boston, holding serve in both home games.  While the 2-0 lead may sound dominant, it is highly misleading as both games have been tighter than a fat lady's girdle.  Vancouver won Game 1, 1-0 winning on a goal with 18 seconds left in the game.  They won the second game 11 seconds into OT, so as you can see, this series is way closer than it looks as it could just as easily be an even series or Boston could be up 2-0.  The series now shifts to Boston for Game 3 tonight (8pm w/Audio), so let's see if Boston can counter with a win.

This past weekend also saw us celebrating birthdays for a couple of our regulars (Happy Birthday by the way to BRUNO and HOWIE); Both celebrating their birthdays with parties on the same night; two totally distinct crowds: One party geared towards late 20's & early 30's French-Canadians who enjoyed listening to Journey, watching the Stanley Cup and had their party catered by Mile End Brooklyn Deli.  The second party was a bit younger, consisting of Ivy-league law and med students who were content with just the flowing beverages and great music.  So while it was an interesting overlap of people, it made for a great vibe and a fun night.  The only fly in the ointment was my fridge breaking down at the end of the night, which gave me added stress I did not need.  As always, we survived the bump in the road and moved on.
All told, it was a very long weekend but a relatively good one.  That being said, I never thought I'd be happy to see Monday.  In the meantime, I'll keep chasing my tail and eventually I'll catch up (hopefully).

TONIGHT: Games n Mugs Night featuring $1 Bud/Bud Light mugs, or $2 mugs, all other domestic drafts and TWO for ONE Wine or Sangria by the glass (ALL NIGHT)! Stanley Cup Final,  Vancouver Canucks vs Boston Bruins, Game 3 (8pm w/Audio)!

P.S.: Please circle Thursday night on your calendar and join us for the World Police and Fire Games fundraiser taking place at the bar!  You'll be partying with members of Team NYC and supporting a great cause as we prepare for the 2011 Games taking place in NYC this August.  It will be a great night for a great cause.
