Draft Party, Sabres Tonight, Quite Frankly

Hello all 1,445 NYC Bills fans!

We’re only hours away from the 2006 NFL Draft, and with the 8th pick nobody has any idea who the Bills will end up with. Will they take Broderick Bunkley? Or Jay Cutler? Or will they trade down? Or even UP??? Will they trade for a 2nd first round pick?

Come on down to McFadden’s and join your fellow NYCBBB members to find out the answers to these questions and more tomorrow from 12-7pm at our legendary draft party. We’re expecting a ton of Bills fans (as well as fans of other teams) to watch us make at least 4 first day picks so McFadden’s will have additional staff on. This is our one event that is open to all football fans, so feel free to bring your Giants and Jets fans! This is also our 5TH anniversary! I remember our first gathering when we drafted Mike Williams and traded for Drew Bledsoe!

As a reminder, here are the specials:

From 12-7pm
$35 – All the draft beer (hopefully Labatt Blue or Molson Canadian included) you can drink and wings you can eat
$25 – All the Bud/Bud Lite draft you can drink and wings you can eat
$20 – All the POP you can drink and wings you can eat
$1 off all mixed drinks

This will probably be our only off-season event as your NYCBBB staff members all have busy summers planned, including our own Michelle Girardi who has recently been engaged and will be wed at the Statler Towers in Buffalo next year!

We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow for what is ALWAYS an awesome time!

Sabres Update – from Kevin Smith
First, a special thanks to everyone that took the time to write in after my last email. Sorry was too busy to write back to everyone. There were a number of great suggestions for places to watch the games, and on Wednesday I check out the most popular suggestion – The Blue Moon on 75th and 1st. It was a GREAT TIME. The owner played college hockey for current Sabres assistant coach Brian McCrutcheon and thus has special interest in the Sabres. They have great drink and food specials and even have a goal light that goes off when the Sabres score. I was promised they’ll have the game on tonight and they even placed a special order Labatt Blue for the occasion (it arrived yesterday)! Here’s the info:

Tonight, 7pm, Blue Moon, 75th and 1st. (212) 288-9811

For those of you that can’t make it, the game will be shown nationally on OLN. As always, if you have any questions email be at kevin@nycbbb.com See you tonight at 7 and tomorrow at the draft party! – Kevin

Quite Frankly
We’ve been told that Stephen A. Smith of ESPN’s Quite Frankly enjoyed Bills fans so much for the Jim Kelly visit, that they’ve extended another invitation to us for their NFL draft pizza party! There’s one tonight at 5:30 and one Monday at 6:30. There will be many top draft picks at both parties, so it should be a great time! You can reserve tickets by calling # 212-715-6800.

Go Bills! Go Sabres!!!
