What better way to watch your favorite team than with a bunch of fans at a bar with giveaways and the possible Alumni sightings? The Devils Army Generals and the New Jersey Devils are planning on having a viewing party each month of the 2011-2012 season and would like to cater to the best fans in the NHL. In order for us to do so, we need to know what county you’re in so we can plan viewing parties in your area.
We’d also love suggestions for locations in your county so we can check them out!
Let’s hear from you Devils Army!
The Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins are fighting for the Holy Grail, the Stanley Cup. Whether you have a rooting interest or not you can not deny that this series of games is always the most exciting to watch. The Devils Generals are hosting a viewing party to watch Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
This Saturday at 8PM, join us at Hells Kitchen in Newark for some hockey and sangria. It’s walking distance from that place we call home (The Rock!) and home to many pre-game parties and events during the regular season. Of course there will be drink specials and giveaways so be there!
Here’s what you need to know:
Saturday, June 4th @ 8PM
- Happy hour drafts
- $15 pitchers of sangria
- $28 bud vessels
- $4 lemon drop shots & $3 bomb shots
Easy, right? RSVP on Facebook or comment to let us know you’re coming along!
Where did you watch Game 5 of the Boston and Montreal series? If it wasn’t at Cryan’s in South Orange, you made the wrong choice. The Generals hosted a Tweet Up to watch the game last Thursday with all the usual festivities. There was hockey. There were prizes. There was even a Stanley Cup in attendance… kind of.
Tweet Ups are fun, that’s a given. But each Tweet Up gets better. There are a few regular attendee’s and always a few new faces. It’s a great way to meet and hang out with other hockey fans and enjoy a game. Since the Devils season has officially ended this is how we can get our playoff hockey fix! There’s still hockey to watch and there’s plenty to talk about. All the usual topics are covered – players, teams, stats. Then there are the unusual conversations about hockey hats and beards. (Kim and I decided that the Flyers need to clean up a bit, don’t you agree?)
The majority of us were rooting for Boston so the overtime win was pretty sweet! We also had a ton of give aways and a drawing to win an autographed Elias puck that people were pretty pumped about.
It was another successful Tweet Up. If you missed this one don’t worry, there will be more to come! We kind of really like this Tweet Up thing.
In case you missed it, there was a pretty awesome TweetUp on Friday, March 25th! A great group of fans got together to watch the Devils play the Penguins at McGoverns Tavern in Newark, including some special guests… Does the name Ken Daneyko ring a bell?
Ken Daneyko was one of the fans on Friday – mingling with the group, talking hockey and watching the game. Of course he signed some autographs and took some pictures, too! We gave Daneyko a run down on Twitter and let him answer some fan submitted questions on our @DevilsGenerals account. In response to @21njdevils101, Daneyko’s favorite current Devil is a tie between Kovy and Parise, and said Marty has been a good buddy of his. Another fan, @DownGoesAvery, asked which current Devil/NHL player reminds Ken the most of himself. Daneyko tweeted back with, “No one, I’m one of a kind, but I’d have to say Mark Fraser.”
We also had the guys of Hockey This Week Radio Show do a live broadcast featuring our very own General Carlos, Chris Wassel of The Program and of course, Ken Daneyko. They talked about the Generals and what we’ve been up to, Zach Parise’s return coming up this Wednesday and why it’s okay to wear a Capitals shirt to a Devils game – hey, as long as it’s red!
Unfortunately, the Devils lost to the Penguins 1-0 in a shoot out, but we still had a great time! Thanks to McGoverns Tavern for letting a group of Devils fans watch their team on NCAA weekend! And of course, thanks to Hockey This Week and Ken Daneyko for stopping by and making this TweetUp one of a kind.
Check out the pics from Friday night. I know there’s a couple of familiar faces in there, let us know where you are!
If you joined us for our last tweetup on February 25th at Port 44 in Newark, you already know how much fun it was to watch a road game with a room full of other Devils fans and Devils Generals. If you missed it, you have a chance to correct your mistake!
Join us as we watch our Devils take on the Atlanta Thrashers! This Friday, March 11th, we will be having another NJ Devils Tweetup at Port 44! It is once again being organized by @Rach716.
Port 44 will be offering the same happy hour specials as the 1st tweetup: $3 house-brewed pints & $2 off mixed drinks. You can RSVP here.
You do not have to be on Twitter to come and join the fun. Every fan is welcome! You don’t even have to be a Devils fan… just be warned, you will be surrounded by us.
So come on out and help cheer on our New Jersey Devils as we continue our run to the playoffs!
LET’S GO DEVILS!

What’s better than watching the New Jersey Devils on TV when they’re on the road? Watching them play a road game while surrounded by other fans… your fellow members of the Devils Army!
Join us tomorrow night to watch the Devils take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. We will be gathering at Port 44 Brew Pub in Newark, just a few blocks from The Rock, for a New Jersey Devils Tweet Up! Don’t have Twitter? No problem! Everyone is invited to come and cheer on the Devils.
We will have our own private area, and there will be drink specials ($3 house-brewed pints and $2 off mixed drinks). What better way to spend your Friday night than to watch the red-hot Devils with other hard-core fans?
Some of the Devils Generals will also be there, so be sure to also bring your questions and ideas for the team!
LET’S GO DEVILS!
