Bethesda Row and Rockville Town Square will host watch parties tonight as the Washington Capitals take on the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the team’s quest for the Stanley Cup.

If the Capitals win tonight in Las Vegas, the team would bring home the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.

Bethesda Row will host a watch party set with food and drink specials beginning at 6 p.m. and will show the game on a big screen showing the game beginning at 8 p.m., according to a Facebook post Monday afternoon. Mama Lucia’s, home to Capitals star Alex Ovechkin’s pregame meal of chicken parmesan and spaghetti, will be serving grilled burgers and hot dogs and drink specials, such as the “Caps punch.”

Rockville Town Square and the city of Rockville also will host a watch party complete with the game showing on a big screen from 8 to 11 p.m. Those attending are advised to bring blankets and chairs for the free event.

Also as part of the celebration, Montgomery Parks is offering discounted skate sessions at local ice rinks.

Skaters who show up at the Cabin John Ice Rink or the Wheaton Ice Arena on Thursday wearing Capitals gear only have to pay $5, including rentals, parks officials say. If the Caps lose Thursday’s game and the series continues, the deal will be valid on any other game days.

“But we don’t want to acknowledge those possibilities,” quipped Jordan Gray, assistant marketing and public affairs manager for the parks system.

It typically costs $7 to use the rinks, not including rentals.

Public skate sessions at Cabin John run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.

After group lessons at the Wheaton Ice Arena end at 8 p.m., skaters there will have an opportunity to watch Game 5 at the arena while slurping down one of the snack bar’s $2 red slush puppies.
