just do an advanced search for a word that is in here that doesn't come up very often on this board, like "Brickyard", it will bring the thread out.

It is but I don't believe it's open on weekends. It should be open on the 28th though for the Holiday Bowl. It would also be a decent choice to watch the game, and yes, I think you could call it "Cal friendly" since the place is populated with Cal fans the Friday before every Big Game, including much of the Cal Band, with instruments.

I went to Brickyard with a couple friends (1 a UT alum) for the Texass Oklahoma State game, and was quite impressed with the Hooker Whores fans. Every first down elicited a roar like it was a game winning TD. Pity they didn't get more of those...

They are good folks, but unless Cal has 2/3 of the Brickyard, it will seem like the UT bar that it normally is this year...loud proud bunch.

That's the problem with watching Cal sports in the City, a whole lot of transplants from other schools mixed with the hordes of yuppie neutrals who don't give a crap about college sports...

I've always like Stadium Pub in Walnut Creek. Not fancy but a good spot for football watching
