Watch Party: The Throwdown in Motown!

The Throwdown in Motown

The season just doesn’t feel started unless a few things happen: the annual trek to Vegas. The home opener. The first three-game winning streak.

And the first Life In Hockeywood L.A. Kings watch party!
This Sunday morning, Kings fans are invited to come down to Long Beach for another killer breakfast watch party at the Super Mex on Spring. The best part about having a morning game is the ability to stuff your face with a solid Mexican-style breakfast,. Anmd breakfast is among some of the things they do best at this particular Super Mex.

Spring Street Skillet

One of my favorite things to get is the Spring Street Skillet, where you get two scrambled eggs and four (count em, 4) items. Personally, I get the chorizo, bacon, sausage and canadian bacon. I call it The Carnivore.
There’s also a plethora of breakfast burritos, as well as breakfast machaca, pancakes, steel-cut oatmeal and a kid’s mix-and-match breakfast that will appeal to the younglings. And it’s all reasonably priced.
Plus, there’s a hockey game going on! The patio fits a good amount of people, and they’ll fire up the heaters and the volume so you can sip mimosas outside while watching the STANLEY CUP CHAMPION Kings take on their hated rivals from Detroit.

Second Round Kings Playoff Watch Party at The Lazy Dog Cafe!

Game watch

PhotobucketThe Kings shocked the hockey world, by taking the President’s Trophy winners out of the Stanley Cup equation. Excitement is building for The Little Team That Can.

So, we’re heading back to our lucky spot, The Lazy Dog Cafe. Rich, the manager, is can’t wait to bring The Black and White Battalion back to Cerritos. Happy hour prices are in effect, which means good food at fantastic prices.

Nothing on the happy Hour menu is over $6! Load up and pig out as the Kings attempt to rock the Blues. Check out the whole menu right here.

Parking is an admited concern, so remember the best place to park is on the north end of the mall, behind Nordstrom and next to Sears. You’ll have to hoof it, but it’s better than trying to wait for people leaving the mall for a spot.

Those who have gone to these watch parties hopefully have a good time. I keep seeing new faces with some familiar ones. Bring your crew down! We’re gonna fill that place!

Kings Playoff Watch Party at The Lazy Dog Cafe!

Wailing on Vancouver at The Lazy Dog Cafe

Bartendress at The Lazy Dog CafeWe have had a lot of luck with our watch parties, dating all the way back to 2007. And luck is what we’re going to need if the Kings are to head back the Los Angeles up two games to none.

So, we’re heading back to our new favorite spot, The Lazy Dog Cafe. Rich, the manager, is anxious to bring back The Black and White Battalion back to Cerritos. And he’s been gracious enough to extend Happy Hour to all Kings fans representing the boys.

“What type of food do they serve there?” is the top question I got before the last party. And it’s safe to say Lazy Dog defies definition. For example: ever had some loaded potato hushpuppies? How about Togarashi edamame? Or wok-fried calamari?

Too exotic? O.K., try a brick oven pretzel, some buffalo chicken nuggets or sweet potato tater tots. The cajun fries are a personal favorite, and for $3, one of the best bargains.

Lazy Dog Cafe's cajun fries and lettuce cups. Nom nom nom.Still sounds too adventurous? No worries. Get a late night burger, chicken tenders or a personal pizza. And it’s all reduced prices! Nothing on the happy menu is over $6! Load up and pig out as the Kings wail on Vancouver. Check out the whole menu right here. Plus, Newcastle on tap, which is my current choice of beer.

Parking is also a concern, since there’s a ton of restaurants at the Cerritos Center. Rich told me the best place to park is on the north end of the mall, behind Nordstrom and next to Sears. You’ll have to walk a bit, but it’s better than trying to wait for people leaving the mall for a spot. Plus, it’ll allow you some sobering-up time after the game. (PLEASE DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE, DUMMIES.)

So, I hope to see as many Kings fans as we had last time. The Kings have the attention of Vancouver now. Let’s watch them silence the crowd at Rogers Arena and stun the hockey world.
