The Columbus Crew, CD101 and Fat Eddie's Bar have partnered to bring you the "Brew with the Crew" radio show every Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at Fat Eddie's in the Arena District. Fat Eddie's is located at 391 Neil Avenue, next to PromoWest Pavilion.
The weekly show will be hosted by CD101 disc jockeys Brian Phillips or Joe Weasel, who will be joined by different Crew players each week throughout the year. Frankie Hejduk and Kyle Martino are scheduled to join Weasel for the show this week.
"The Crew is excited to partner with Fat Eddie's and CD101 to bring our fans a unique opportunity to get to know our players and get excited about the upcoming game," said Suzy Christopher, The Crew's Senior Director of Marketing. "These events will be fun and festive and are sure to appeal to a wide range of fans and hopefully some soon-to-be fans."
The Crew and CD101 will give away prizes and have special contests each week for those in attendance.
"CD101 and The Crew have had a successful and long-standing relationship," said Randy Malloy, Director of Operations for CD101 "We are therefore very excited about this new partnership with The Crew and Fat Eddie's."
Additionally, anyone who comes out to watch the "Brew with the Crew" show will have the opportunity to stay for the live music at THE PLAZA at PromoWest at no additional charge. Fat Eddie's also serves food and will have drink specials available.
"We are looking forward to hosting the Columbus Crew every Thursday at Fat Eddie's Bar," said Becky Long, Marketing Director for PromoWest Pavilion/Newport Music Hall. "We had a very successful Crew Fanfest at PromoWest Pavilion before the season started. This is another example of just how versatile and fun our complex of PromoWest Pavilion and Fat Eddie's can be. Fans can start with the Fanfest at Fat Eddie's from 5-7PM then move outdoors to THE PLAZA at PromoWest for great live music every Thursday night."
