Wake for the Burgandy and Gold at Lou’s City Bar this Saturday

14th and Irving St, NW

From an email:

“Washington Wake

Saturday football is back in the NFL. The Skins will cast a somber tone over the proceedings as they lay in state at FedEx Field vs. the Eagles at 4:30pm. Funeral services will be held at Lou’s City Bar. Black attire is suggested, and “Im-peach Snyder” shots will be given out for each nail the Eagles put in the coffin. Following a loss, Lou’s will black out next week’s purgatorial Deadskins-Cowboys finale.”

  • If more bars in DC start doing this on the regular, maybe we could actually convince Snyder that he’s not wanted here and move to LA or something? I’m all for that whole Bill Simmons scenario.

      He doesn’t care what price bars charge for shots.

      • This isn’t about the price of shots (that’s obviously irrelevant), but about local bars promising/threatening to blackout the skins games (which is presumably based on local sentiment about the Deadskins).

  • I don’t even like football, but I kind of want to go to this.
    Why is it on Saturday though? Have they no co-opted enough days of the week already?

    • During the college football deadzone between the conference championship games and the start of bowl season, the NFL traditionally shifts a couple games to Saturday to fill the void.

  • This is perfect.
