HOCKEY The Washington Capitals are hosting their second annual Bourbon & Cigar Fundraiser at Top of the Town in Arlington, where you can sample both while mingling with Caps alums from across the team’s 44 seasons, including Peter Bondra, Olie Kolzig, Peter May, Yvon Labre, and Kelly Miller. You can also bid on “experiences” with Caps alums in the live auction. The event benefits the Washington Capitals Alumni Association (WCAA) Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarship opportunities to local high school hockey athletes.
