If you are available and inclined, there is an informal lunch with Mel Tucker scheduled for May 23 at Avila's El Ranchito restaurant in Newport (ground zero for Orange County Buffs fans). Twenty bucks for all you can eat buffet, plus full bar for purchase. The proprietress of El Ranchito is a not-long-ago CU graduate and is super involved with Buff stuff locally. For my $20, I'm going to try to get Tucker to take a picture with me while he is doing that stomach-level pointing at the other guy thing that he does with recruits. In the odd chance that someone reading this will go, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
