    Hope all had a Happy Easter watching the Thunder getting curb stomped ;)

    To the fellow Rocket fans in NYC, we will be having a watch party meet-up at the Avenida Cantina bar in Manhattan. (http://avenidacantina.com/)

    FAQ: Why this bar? It is a run by Houstonians (support our comrades in arms!) and hosts for all Houston sports teams. In addition, it has a relatively centralized location. We have used it in the past for Rockets and Texans, and don't fix what ain't broke, right?

    I'm scared of showing up, do these things actually happen??? Yes, we have had between 20-50 people per playoff game across the city.

    Reference: http://bbs.clutchfans.net/index.php...-over-manhattan-part-3-cool-story-bro.265903/

    Trust me, it happens. There is no need to be afraid. Already know 10+ going before making the thread. People gathered Sunday even without organization too. There is zero failure rate.

    Can I bring non Rockets fans/casual nba fans/kids/anybody with me? Yes, of course. Why not?

    When is the game? Wednesday, 8 pm EST.

    There is a NYC Rockets fans FB goup: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1381087608887270/ (I am one of the moderators of the board).

    If you have any questions, you can message me through the board, email, or others. Phone:

    I live in Brooklyn so I will probably stay in Brooklyn for this one.For game 3, I might drop by Chilos on Franklin Ave in Brooklyn. I know @tycoonchip will be there and they are showing the game there.

    Yeah, weekday games are a bit harder for the travels.

    The Friday time looks great however.

    @Sweet Lou 4 2 Chilos sounds like a nice place, but it is just so, so, far away for people in uws, bronx, morningside, harlem... Hope you can make it to the city on Friday.

    I'm 50-50 on whether I can make it down on Wednesday. I have an obligation in the Bronx earlier in the eve and don't want to miss any of the game. I am definitely be able to do Friday, though.

    Also, I'll reconfirm what jbasket posted and say that it has been successful and a good time in the past. Hoping to carry it on and have it grow!

    OP, do you regularly send out emails to large groups within the organization that you work for?

    I was thinking perhaps of doing The Hog Pit Friday, since there was such a even split between the two places on the Facebook group poll. Then, we can choose as a collective group which one worked best for all after both were experienced this year.
