Penguins vs. Capitals; Peter’s Pub, an Oakland Hotspot (Mon., 5/7/18)

1) The Penguins face off again tonight against the Washington Capitals in the second round of the NHL playoffs tonight at 7 p.m. This is a do-or-die game for the Penguins.Good luck to the Pens as they try to go for a Stanley Cup Three-peat! If needed *hopefully) game 7 day will be in Washington, D.C. Wednesday night. PPG Paints Arena. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.

2) Peter’s Pub has been many Pitt students’ local for years thanks to a range of cocktails, drafts, and craft and import bottles. The food menu also keeps rising classes coming back for more. Every day boasts different food and drink specials, and the pub’s spacious interior means dancing. Country Night is every Wednesday. Check out the great specials: $6 fishbowls and $2 Coors Light bottles (10 p.m.-midnight) and $6 Bud Light pitchers (7 p.m.-close). If you want to add some protein to the picture, try the $5.95 sandwiches ( 5-10 p.m.). Bassburgh brings—what else?—the bass to the downstairs on Fridays, and DJ MSSV spins upstairs on Fridays and Saturdays. Meanwhile, DJ Drew Altman spins downstairs Saturdays. If dancing’s not your scene, Peter’s Pub is a chill place to enjoy lunch or dinner any day of the week. 116 Oakland Ave., Oakland. (RH, CM)
