    Little short notice (unfortunately) but 40-50 ish die-hard fans, from all over NYC, came together to celebrate the triumph known as game 7. Thank you for the good folks at The Hog Pit for reserving the space for us. We will always represent the ketchup and mustard unlike no others.

    So far, we are 3-0 with meet-ups. The superstitions are clear.

    The good picture:

    The ratio has been getting progressively more even. Me gusta.

    Me too :cool: Nothing beats watching the game with other die-hard fans. While I could not make my own co-hosted event this time, ha, I have heard only positive things about the location switch as well.

    Yeah there was at least 30 or 40 people there. Was really nice to be at a bar and be able to watch the game with the volume on. I was at the bar with a few friends.

    Food was decent. Beers were cold. Plenty of space and seats. And that's all you can ask for.

    Wish I could watch it with a group like that, always watch it by myself at night or early in the mornings because people could care less about the NBA over here.

    The atmosphere was great. We should recreate it for the WCF for sure.

    Without a doubt!

    Yea, it seems like we have a lot of momentum with this.

    I would say to create a thread and see what happens? Wouldn't hurt to try :grin:

    Yo guys, there is going to be another viewing party at The Hog Pit for tonight's game. Y'all should come through, there were 40 people the last time for a weekend meet-up. (37 West 26th St).

    There are already an estimated 8 showing already. Reservation starts at gametime (obviously can get there early if you so want to) under "Rose".
