I made my first trip to DC Brau headquarters today, after reading a @dcbrau tweet that they had the FWR Imperial Pumpkin Porter on tap—I’m a sucker for any pumpkin beer and it’s usually tough to find them outside the fall season. I’d had DC Brau’s The Public two or three times at some local […]

The Baltimore Sun ran an article in the business section last week on Bootcamp Lights, the company that recently ran some WAKA kickball and dodgeball advertisements for us. They refer to it as “airborne advertising 2.0″. Check out part of our WAKA helicopter ad on YouTube through that last link.

Speaking on the NHL Network about the Anaheim Ducks hiring of former Caps coach Bruce Boudreau, Kevin Weekes praised Boudreau for putting Caps “back on the radar” and said, “they’re now the main team back in the DC area in terms of the sports scene.” True? Do the Caps come ahead of the Skins as […]
