Trick or Treat? That’s how I feel about the Miami Hurricanes. Today they had a Thursday night game on the schedule against UVA. We already had plans to check out a local performing artist (who we didn’t enjoy this week by the way) at the Socci Restaurant inside of the Arlington Renaissance Capital View Hotel in Crystal City VA. We went a few weeks ago and checked out another band that was OUTSTANDING! The place is GORGEOUS and the happy hour is great! Two large plasma TVs sit at the end of each bar. One TV with the pre game coverage of the World Series on Fox and the other had pre game coverage of both the World Series and the Miami vs UVA game on ESPN.
We arrived there around 6pm and I had a glass of wine. Some of our friends wanted to go to The Tortoise and Hare or Crystal City Sports Tavern to watch the games and hang out. Socci is a fantastic happy hour spot or a cool place to unwind and have drinks. Our friends wanted to get rowdy!
We head over to Tortoise and Hare and the first problem (well for me anyway) is that they were only showing the World Series. The place “looked” like it would have been cool, but if you’re not going to play football, then I cannot hang around. So we changed gears and heading 4 doors down to the Crystal City Sports Pub. Awesome place! Loads of TVs. Every other TV had the World Series AND our Canes game on ESPN. We settled down and ate some great wings and shared an AWESOME burger! What more could a guy want from a Sports Bar on a Thursday Night?
I’ll tell you: a WIN from the Canes! But no such luck. The Canes came out flat and they could not stop the run. Made Parks from VA look like a ROCKSTAR. As usual, the Canes rally back and have opportunities to still win in the 4th quarter but just can’t pull of the W…So I’m back to…
No love for the Canes in VA!
