In Case You Were Wondering: The Hockey RV in Courthouse

If you caught a glimpse of this RV parked outside the Court Suites Hotel in Courthouse, you may have wondered what the heck it’s doing there. If you count yourself as a hockey fan or a video game nut, you may have also been tempted to go up and knock on the door.

The RV is on a tour of the U.S. and Canada to promote the “real hockey experience” of playing NHL 2K11 on the Nintendo Wii.

It’s here in Arlington in advance of two promotional appearances this weekend: Saturday at a GameStop in Rockville (14929 Shady Grove Road), and Sunday at a Best Buy in Alexandria (5901 Stevenson Ave). Both appareances will take place from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

DC is among a handful of hockey meccas on the east coast where the RV is making a stop. The two weekend appearances are the only items on the official schedule, but with the RV crew staying so close to the Caps training facility they have to be planning on going over there and witnessing a real real hockey experience, right?
