I can't believe it's true, but college football is back in six days! We'll have all the Cal games we can possibly show at the Standard, and we're now an official Cal alumni bar, which means we're donating 10% of proceeds during the games to the alumni association. So if you come here to watch the games, you can support Cal in more than one way. We've also got official NYC Cal Alumni Club t-shirts for sale, and t-shirts and pint glasses to give away, and so on and so forth. It will be festive, we vow.
And if all that's not enough we're doing bucket specials during the games, where you'll be able to buy 5 Miller Lites or High Lifes (mix and match) on ice in a bucket for $15. And we'll pour pitchers of microbrews for $2 off the cost of 4 pints of the beer.
Basically, get yourself here. Plus, the team looks to be pretty good this year (cross your fingers). The first game is a huge one, at home against Michigan State. The details:
Cal vs. Michigan State
Saturday, August 30
If you're not a Cal fan, you can still expect us to show lots of the games you're interested in on our two big projection screens. Just ask.
