Sabres Tweetup (vs. Boston) 3/10/11 Postmortem March 11, 2011

Social Media Club Buffalo hosted a Sabres Tweetup last night. I arrived at Morrissey’s Irish Pub around 6:45pm, and it was being decided to move next door to Benchwarmers. Morrissey’s is a perfectly nice place, but Benchwarmers had about a dozen televisions and no loud Irish music. We transferred the party to Benchwarmers and were greeted warmly by Steve. He took drink and food orders with a good amount of speed and we all settled down to watch the game.

The first period, as you know, was nothing to write home about, but the guys redeemed themselves in the second period. Meanwhile, all of us in attendance flitted about talking to different groups of people, eating, and drinking. I had a cheeseburger and fries, which were very good, and the wings and quesadilla down the table from me looked pretty good too.

Steve seemed vested in my cosmopolitan, suggesting different flavored vodkas to me throughout the night. And he may look like a tough biker dude, but he makes a mean pink drink! He kept the drinks flowing for everyone from what I could see.

The Sabres continued to battle the Bruins (boooo!) and maintained a tie at the end of regulation. I wasn’t sure what to think – for some reason I wasn’t very confident in Miller’s ability to win in a shootout. And then the magic happened – Gerbe passed to Boyes right at the goal mouth and -BOOM- the puck was in the net! Benchwarmers erupted in cheers, clapping, and high-fives. It was a good moment.

If you’re ever on the fence about whether or not you should attend one of these Tweetups, I urge you to come to one and see what they’re like. We don’t bite! (Well, most of us – we’re not sure about a few but we’ll keep a close eye on them.)
