Hello all 1,912 NYC Bills Fans!
Will we EVER get to 2,000 members? Sabres are up 1-0 over the Bruins in the first round of the NHL Playoffs, the NFL Draft is less than a week away, and spring is here. Its a great time to be a Buffalo sports fan!
If you haven’t heard, the NFL moved the Draft from Saturday to Round 1 being on held Thursday night, Rounds 2-3 on Friday night and the rest of the Draft on Saturday. That totally screws with our Saturday all-day draft party, but the folks at McFadden’s/Calico’s were more than willing to help out. Here’s the deal:
April 22 – Thursday – Calico Jack’s will have the first round of the Draft televised with sound starting at 7pm. From 7-11pm, the bar will offer $3 import drafts (including Blue), half priced drink specials, and free wings!
April 23rd – Friday – Calico Jack’s will offer the same special with wings from 7-11pm for rounds 2-3 and will have the sound on shortly before/after the Bills pick (keep in mind its Friday night) and if there’s a Sabres playoff game that night they’ll televise if available.
Apr 24th – Saturday – McFadden’s will hold the all-you-can-drink/wing specials we use during the season from 11-4pm. The pricing can be found here:
As most of you know, this is the only party around like this, and we always get a great and exciting crowd. Its more fun with non-Bills fans there as folks boo each others picks, so we encourage you to bring friends that root for other teams. Besides, its a great special!
Last year I walked into the party and told Matt Soreco I didn’t care who we drafted, as long as we didn’t take that undersized one-year wonder from Penn State named Maybin in a must win year. Of course, he’s now a Bill and his first year was an embarrassment, hopefully he can turn things around. I have a lot more faith in Buddy Nix than than Russ Brandon and Dick Jauron, so am cool with whomever they draft.
And yes, I’d be thrilled to see them take a Clausen or Tebow…
