Nats Tickets, Winery Event and Football Ticket Information

Fellow Canes,

We have a couple major events coming up soon that we wanted to make sure were on your radar!  We need to make ticket purchases very soon, so act quickly!  More details on the events—our night at the Nationals game and our winery event at Desert Rose Winery—as well as tickets to road football games are below.

DC Canes Night Out at Nationals Park

Join DC Canes as we head out for a night at the ballpark! We are getting tickets to see the Washington Nationals take on the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, August 27th (7:05pm start). Tickets are $13, but if we sell 25 tickets, that price will reduce to $9! You can’t beat that price anywhere in the ballpark, so the more people that buy tickets, the cheaper it will be for everyone!

Please send money via PayPal to with the subject heading “Nationals Tickets.” In the comments section, give us your name, email address and the number of tickets you are purchasing. If we get 25 tickets sold to get the discount, we will issue refunds to everyone who purchased tickets for the difference in price.

The deadline to purchase tickets is July 24, 2013, so get your ticket orders in before that date!! Questions? Contact


Winery Event

DC Canes will be hosting a private tasting event at Desert Rose Winery, a winery in Hume, Virginia started by a proud Miami alum.  The event will go from 1:30-4:30pm on Sunday, August 11, 2013.  We are offering a passenger van option for those who wish to catch a ride out to the event.  The van will leave from the Pentagon City metro station outside the mall at 12:00pm.  We will depart the winery at 4:30pm heading back to Pentagon City.  The cost for the van option is $30 per person and includes the tasting fee.  For those who choose to drive themselves, tastings will be $8.  We encourage all of you to organize carpools and have a designated driver should you choose to provide your own transportation out to the winery.

At the tasting event, anyone who purchases 3 bottles of wine will receive a 10% discount on the total price.  There will also be cheese and meat platters available for $12.50 each (serves 2).  You may also bring your own food items to have a picnic if you wish after the tastings are done.

We are taking preorders for both the van spots (11) and for individual tastings.  Please send payments via PayPal with the subject heading “Winery Event.”  Please indicate clearly in the comments section how many van spots and/or tasting fees you are requesting.  If we do not receive enough people to fill the van by Saturday, August 3rd, we will cancel the van and issue refunds for the van portion of the fee.  At that time, we will organize carpools for the people who had paid for the van.
