To support the home team, Caps fan-blog Brooks Laichyear has suggested boycotting Boston-based products today. Here's the problem: in our neighborhood, we're practically a mini-Beantown. Brooks Laichyear wants Caps fans to avoid Dunkin Donuts and Staples. DCist has pointed out that Au Bon Pain and Legal Seafoods are all Boston-immigrants. All here in Penn Quarter.
While we certainly don't support a boycott of any Penn Quarter establishments, if you're a Caps fan, try showing your support for some independent establishments before puck drop at 7:30p. Sure, forego the Sam Adams tonight, and instead try DC Brau's Penn Quarter Porter.
