Baker, Browns and Beer

Three reasons for you to NOT stay home on Sunday night! Come to one of our four viewing sites and watch the Browns take on the Los Angeles Rams.  We will actually have trivia prizes at Fado and Blackfinn. Fado will also be featuring Great Lakes Joe Thomas Kolsch beer on tap. We will need all hands on deck to cheer for our Browns in this tough match up.

Go Browns!!
Neil (WDCABBC President)

Special Announcement

Big News! Starting THIS SUNDAY, the Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Joe Thomas Kolsch beer will be on tap at Fado. This will only be available for a limited time so it’s a good reason to come on out for the later game this weekend. Due to limited distribution, it will only be available at Fado. No other viewing sites will have it.  GO BROWNS!!!

Monday Night Football

Our attendance at all four viewing sites for the Browns opener was impressive. Now here we are in Week Two, with a Monday Night game against the Jets. Does anyone remember what happened the last time Baker Mayfield faced the Jets in an evening game?

In the past, our club would not always officially meet for night games. Attendance was often severely decreased, especially during the years of losing. Many of our members that responded to our Summer survey said they might come out to our viewing sites for night games. So we have decided to officially meet at our two largest attended venues: Fado and Blackfinn. We will give away our halftime trivia prizes and will be accepting memberships and selling T-shirts.

The game will be on at Ugly Mug and Eclipse, but we will not being doing halftime trivia there. So come join your fellow Browns Backers and watch the game with other Browns fans. We promise that even if you leave at halftime so that you are well rested for work on Tuesday, we won’t judge you.

GO BROWNS!!!

Week One – The Wait is Over!

A line from a Tom Petty song kept going through my head after the trade for Odell Beckham Jr., “The waiting is the hardest part.” Well the wait is over and week one is here!

It is time for all Browns fans in the Washington DC Area to show up at one of our four viewing sites! There is nothing like watching game with other Browns fans, so please join us! We are expecting large turnouts, so please be patient and remember that we all have one goal to cheer our Browns to victory!

GO BROWNS!!
