Crewsmas Day is almost upon us! Sing loud for all to hear! As you might have guessed, most of my weekend plans will revolve around Crew SC. But as always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


9th Annual Crewsmas Eve Party at 4th St. Bar & Grill

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us! Crewsmas Eve began as an informal gathering of fans to celebrate the first Crew home game of the season. It's since morphed into an annual party that's recognized by Crew SC itself. So come on out and celebrate with fellow Crewvians, get your Crew Union membership and wish to one and all a Merry Crewsmas!
