As you're probably aware, GLB's own Jordan Ming is coming to San Diego (and Arizona) in roughly two weeks. I've assigned myself that role of ambassador for the city (meaning I'm taking off work to show her tourist-y things like the beach and the zoo).
Her previous plan to try and get people together during the day on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday to do a tour of PETCO Park was an epic failure because most of the GLBers have jobs (shocking, I know). My plan is better.
On Sunday, March 18th, Ms. Ming will be returning from Arizona with myself and Wonko. This day is a Sunday (following a Saturday St. Patrick's Day, so I won't expect much drinking from you lads) and the 3rd round of the NCAA Basketball Tournament will be going on, so there is plenty of reason to get together at a watering hole downtown together and watch it....right?
The most suitable time for an event like this seems to be about 5pm (plenty of time to drink water and take Advil, and plenty of time for the three of us to get back from Arizona), so as to ensure that there's still basketball on. So we're looking for a place downtown with lots of TVs, good food and good beer. It also wouldn't hurt for it to have some space, as I'm hopeful that we can get quite the crowd together.
RSVP in the comments below with your bar/restaurant of choice. I'm sure the democratic nature of the comments will make it easy for everyone to settle on a single place.
