Here is the link for our group rate ($89/night) at the Courtyard San Diego Central, 8651 Spectrum Center Blvd, San Diego, California 92123
San Diego Central Hotel - Hotels in Central San Diego, CA
You need to select your dates and by default this link gives you two queen beds. If you prefer one king bed, just change the last letter of the group code to "a" as follows:
Group code: nepnepb (2 queen beds)
Group code: nepnepa (king and sofabed)
The discounted rate is good for check-ins as early as Friday, 10/22 through check-outs as late as Tuesday, 10/26.
Also remember that every room has a small refrigerator so you can keep your tailgate food and drink chilled overnight and then just load up your cooler with ice before heading out in the morning. Parking and internet access are also free.
SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY
We'll be having a private party at Players Sports Bar, 7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego, CA 92111 on Saturday, 10/23 6pm - 8pm
Players Sports Bar - San Diego
I checked this place out over the weekend, met with the manager and believe this is a perfect fit for us. They've got Boston sports memorabilia displayed, have a private room with plenty of TVs and are located just 1.5 miles from the Courtyard in case you want to cab it.
While we are hoping to have some special guests join us, we won't know for sure until they actually show up.
We'll have a salad, pasta and pizza buffet (soft drinks also included, bar drinks are on your own). Because we need to guarantee a minimum, I am accepting payments now as follows:
Adult (ages 13 & up) - $15
Children (5 - 12) - $7
Children under 5 - free
To encourage early payment, these prices are good til the end of September. In October the price will go up $2 and then $5 more at the door. In short, help me out and pay soon!
Please join the Patriots Tailgate Yahoo Group for payment info (I prefer not to post my address here).
As we've done in past years, we'll be tailgating right between G4 and H4 which can be reached through Gate 3 by going west to east on Friar's Road.
I'm not sure yet whether we'll be meeting up at the Hazard Center to caravan over together or not but we'll decide on that when it gets a bit closer. If you have an opinion one way or the other please let me know.
Rather than coordinating food and drink as a group, everyone should bring their own. However for the benefit of those who are from out of town or are coming in on the trolley, I will have soda, water, beer and hot dogs available for $1 each with all profits going to charity (Jimmy Fund and San Diego United Way).
Our group tickets in Plaza 17 have been purchased but there are still 5 remaining in case anyone is still interested. I will send a separate message to those who have purchased tickets with the seat assignments shortly. There may also be some cancellations so if you are interested in getting on the wait list (once those 5 tickets go) let me know. Cost is $180 each.
