Are you looking to satisfy your inner sports fan over the next couple of days?
Well, we here in the student newsroom have created a list of sports-ing options for you over the next few days. Here are a few options to consider:
Do you know what day it is? Thursday Night Football! The New England Patriots take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight. Ventnor Sports Cafe 2411 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. Less than a mile from ONA. Eight minute walk from the Marriott Wardman.
If you have a full day attending panels, networking, and running around at ONA, why not give yourself a big treat and go to the Washington Wizards vs New York Knicks pre-season game tomorrow night? The Capital One Arena is only three miles away from the convention hotel. You can take a short 20 minute Lyft or Uber ride or catch the Metro or find directions to the arena.
Have you ever wanted to watch a playoff game in person? Tomorrow night is your time to do so. The Washington Nationals are playing the Chicago Cubs at Nationals Park in D.C for Game 1 of the National League Division Series (be prepared for high prices). The Metro is easily accessible to get to the park. Details: 6.7 miles miles from convention hotel or a 30-minute drive.
