    Avila's El Ranchito Restaurant in Newport Beach is the official unofficial Buffs bar/restaurant in Orange County, if not all of SoCal, because the operator of that location of the small family-run chain is a CU grad and has game-day promotions for both football and basketball. AD Rick George will be there this Thursday for a mixer and some drinks and appetizers a couple days prior to the USC game. I live about 5 minutes away from there so I have signed up. If you are in SoCal, you can register here (by registering, your first drink is freeeee....) : http://events.colorado.edu/EventLis...ventDetails&information_id=161852&print=print

    It was fun. Packed bar; lots of old and recent alumni; lots of "I know someone who knows someone"; nice looking recent pi phi grad table; Rick George being the only one wearing a tie; some former players who look good and in shape; good appetizers. All of this for mostly free in Newport Beach, a minute walk to the sand. It's interesting how just a bit of good success can bring out a starved regional fan base.

    One of my college roommates lives in the LA area and he's going to the game. I suspect there will be a pretty good turnout of Buffs in the stands.

    Naw, he just was walking around with his margarita in a packed bar full of Buffs fans in Newport talking to people, like everyone else. There was no formal speech or anything. It was a good event.

    Are you related to the Rockies' mascot, by any chance?

    Buffs have to win this game at USC. I think they will.
