With over 500+ Cleveland fans in attendance for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, the Union Square Browns Backers had the largest and rowdiest watch party in all of New York City. Our fans were rewarded for their dedication with the most memorable win in the history of Cleveland sports, as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in epic fashion. It was a truly insane and wonderful moment.

Tears were shed, bottles of champagne were popped, and many a shot of Fireball were taken! See below for video of the final celebration.

Thank you all the NYC based fans who showed their support throughout the playoffs. We’d also like to extend our sincere thanks to the awesome staff at Brother Jimmy’s Union Square for making us feel at home during this magical championship run. The waiters, bartenders, kitchen staff, bus boys, security and management performed with the utmost professionalism and selflessly put our celebration first.

Union Square Browns Backers announce new chapter President

UNION SQUARE, New York – The Union Square Browns Backers have announced that President Hunter Hoge is resigning from his post later this month.

The Browns posted a record of 16-32 under his reign. He will be replaced by the chapter spirit animal Noah Szubski who is expected to be an immediate contributor and worthy replacement. Allyssa Manning will be stepping up as Vice-President.

Hoge, who joined the franchise in 2012 after working as General Counsel, will remain with the USQ Browns Backers through the end of the year as a consultant. His last day in his current role will be April 30th.

“I feel honored to have had the opportunity to serve alongside other incredible leaders in the organization, such as Brother Jimmy’s GM Mike Daquino, founder Ryan Leventhal, and the Shot Penguin,” says Hoge. “I’m confident next year is our year.”

The Browns thank Hunter for four years of service in the face of much adversity and wish him success in whatever challenges await him.
