VA Tech Game Watch, NPA Tutoring & Turkeys, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Here are the events coming up soon…

Virginia Tech Game Watch
Saturday, November 19th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Ok, so it’s Senior Day and unlike what everyone thought heading into the season, the Irish are fighting to build their record back up to .500. Looking at my favorite cfbstats.com site, there really aren’t any areas where one team particularly excels vs. the other. This is also the first time ND has faced Virginia Tech, so history isn’t a guide, and the game line is basically even, so the experts have no idea how this is going to end. So here’s the thing … if we execute reasonably well all three phases of the game (offense, defense & special teams), we will beat the Hokies, and close out the home football season on a high note. Join us at one of our two game watches to witness it, and root on the Irish. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Army Game Watch, Nativity Prep, NDP Happy Hour, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

It’s going to be a busy 2nd half of November, so I’ll get right to the posts …

Army (Shamrock Series) Game Watch
Saturday, November 12th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Ok, let’s be honest. It’s hard to be confident about any of the matchups left this season. Normally, the Army game would be one where you’d be watching the second half out of the corner of your eye while you multitask on socializing with fellow Irish fans. The last time Army beat the Irish was in 1958, and we lead the series 38-8-4, having won the last 14. This season though… Army comes into this game 5-4, boasting the #2 rushing offense in the country (359 yards / game) and the #13 scoring defense (18.1 PPG). Sure, they have weaknesses, they’re dead last (#128 in passing offense) and they’re tied for #118 with a 50-50 field goal record. Still, the Irish are 14 point favorites from a betting line perspective, and we’re nearly tied for scoring offense (ND is #59/29.9 PPG and Army is #61/29.3 PPG), so this thing might actually be a game that will come down to the 4th quarter. Its going to be an amazing weather weekend in San Diego, so come enjoy your early afternoon with fellow Irish fans, have some lunch and a beverage (or two) and then enjoy the warm evening weather savoring (hopefully) Irish victory #4. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Lawyers & Professionals Networking Happy Hour
Wednesday, November 16th, 5:30pm
Little Miss Brewing; 7949 Stromesa Ct, San Diego, CA 92126
Join us for a winter Happy Hour at another of San Diego’s great local microbreweries. Enjoy some locally brewed San Diego beer and food trucks while you mingle with fellow Domers. All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you at the brewery!

Navy Game Watch (La Jolla Only), Nativity Prep, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

November arrived quickly didn’t it? This next-to-last month of the year always brings a bevy of great club activities, and this November is no exception. We’ll finish the month with our bi-annual So. Cal matchup against the Trojans, but before we get there (…and your club can literally get you there via our buses to the game, see below), we’ll have a couple of great community service projects, and 2/3 of the football matchups needed to take the Commander in Chief’s trophy. Although I’m not posting the Halloween Candy Collection list again due to length, you can check out Monday’s post if you think you can help with pickup or bagging. For the rest, read below for details…

Navy Game Watch (Rooftop La Jolla Only, no EVT)
Saturday, November 5th, 8:30 am (Pacific Time)
The annual Navy matchup has to be one of the games that makes you nervous every year, and this year there’s reason even beyond the normal concern. Navy (5-2) has some legitimate victories on their resume this year, headlined by a 46-40 win over #6 Houston. They are #5 in the country for rushing offense and for 3rd down conversions. They are, however, #120 for passing offense and tackles for loss, and #103 in stopping opponents’ red zone conversions, so they’re rather one-dimensional offensively and don’t have a stellar defense. So, expect a shootout, and hope that our defense continues their recent progress. If we can stop the Middies, we have a pretty good shot at adding another victory in our quest for 0.500. This is an early game, and given the unusual hour, we’ll only have one location to join your local ND family to watch the game. No excuses, you’ll get an extra hour of sleep Saturday night due to the time change, so set your alarm and join us in La Jolla! Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla

Halloween Candy Collection; Nativity Prep Thanksgiving Turkeys

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Happy Halloween! In November, we have a couple of our long-standing community service projects, so I wanted to get a quick off-cycle web post up to get the word out. See below for the details, and thanks in advance for you help with these projects!

Halloween Candy Collection
We need your help, as part of our service to the community we organize the pickup of Halloween candy from local schools.  This candy is then donated to a local charity that takes it to Tijuana to distribute during their Christmas celebrations. If you are able to pick up collected candy from a local Catholic school please email us at community@ndsandiego.org.

We need volunteers to pick up candy at each school/parish and then either drop it off at Church of St. Luke (El Cajon) for the Central San Diego locations, or at a house in La Jolla for the North County locations. Some schools want the candy picked up on Nov 4th, but most want sometime the week of Nov 7-10th.

For those interested in helping with the bagging of the candy for the distribution to Case de los Pobres, There will be a party to bag the candy at a house in La Jolla at noon on Sunday, November 20th.

Miami Game Watch, Hesburgh Lecture, Buses to the USC Game

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

We’re back to the gridiron this week, and back to our usual game watch locations, see below for that. This week, I’m dropping tonight’s community service Halloween party (figuring if you’re helping you’ve already signed up) but see last week’s post if you’re looking for details. The major excitement this coming week is our annual Hesburgh Lecture on Thursday, featuring Prof. Corey Angst from the Mendoza Business School. There’s also a meet-and-greet happy-hour with Prof. Angst on Wednesday as well, definitely join us for one (or both) of these! For those wondering, we will be doing our annual candy collection and Nativity Prep Thanksgiving turkey projects, I’m just waiting for the details, and I’ll get a post up with details.

Miami Game Watch
Saturday, October 29th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Our beloved Irish return to the gridiron this week for a matchup against 4-3 Miami. Personally, I have fond memories of watching Holtz’s Irish beat the Hurricanes in dramatic fashion back in 1988 on their way to a national championship…but I digress. If you’re pessimistic about our chances given our less-than-impressive first half, note that the line on the game is nearly even (Miami is currently a 1.5-point favorite). If we have managed to improve on our defense yet again, and if we’ve somehow remembered how to mount an offense like we did the first four games (about 40 points per game), this is a winnable contest for the Irish. Join us at one of our game watch locations to watch the lads start the turnaround. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Halloween Party (Community), Hesburgh Lecture & Warm-Up Happy Hour, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Saturday, our beloved Irish have a much-needed bye week, so no game watch this weekend. We’ll definitely be back our usual spots next weekend for the big game against “The U.” Meanwhile, next week brings our first-ever Halloween Party for the kids at Fr. Joe’s — organized by our illustrious VP and Community Service coordinator, Martin Holguin. On the heels of that, Prof. Corey Angst from ND’s Mendoza Business School will deliver a great Hesburgh Lecture and will also join us for a day-before-the-lecture meet and greet happy-hour. Finally, if you’re heading to our game vs. that cardinal-and-gold school up north, why not let the Club transport you (for a very reasonable fee). Details on all of these events are below. We hope you can make one!


Halloween Party for Kids at Fr. Joe’s Village
Friday, October 28th, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Domer Friends and Families, we need your help and support for our next community outreach event. On October 28, Friday, at the Father Joe Village downtown San Diego (Imperial Ave) we will put on a Halloween Themed celebration for homeless and disadvantaged teens. We need a team that is willing to be creative to decorate the hall, manage the food line, and also set up a craft table full of supplies to make your own masquerade mask. We are looking at 60 to 70 total people with 50 teens and the rest support staff and volunteers. Having fun is authorized, making a positive influence on these challenged teens is welcomed, and giving this group of party goers a few hours of normalcy is the goal. We need food, music, and people the day of the event willing to enjoy
the evening (In costume would be great!). if you’re interested in volunteering or if you would like more information please contact Martin Holguin MBA ’14 at community@ndsandiego.org.

Stanford Game Watch, Halloween Party (Community), Hesburgh Lecture, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Our slate of Oct-Nov events is well underway. Whether you’re a football fan, a community service volunteer, or are interested in the latest perspective on social media from the business school (or all three), we have something for you. Also if you have kids at OLP or Cathedral, or the Poway school district, we’ll have club members working the college fair tables at those events next week. Drop by and say hi!

Sanford State Game Watch
Saturday, October 15th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Well, I take back what I projected last week. I’m not sure there was anything much to learn about the team’s progress from last week’s hurricane bowl… our offense was nonexistent, but then so was NC State’s for the most part. This was thanks to defense led mainly by Mother Nature. So. This week brings a tough, but still winnable matchup with a Stanford team who has surrendered 86 points to the state of Washington while amassing only 22. Will the Irish be able to make it 3-in-a-row? If we’ve solved our defensive issues, then possibly…we certainly have the offense for those numbers. Join us to see what happens! You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same.

NC State Game Watch, Fall Crawl (Saturday!) and Domerpreneurs (10/12)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

As we get ready for another hot & sunny weekend, our thoughts turn to the folks on the East Coast who are facing a much different weekend. We hope that impact to people and property is as minimal as possible. Here in San Diego, we’ve got three great events coming up in the next week, see below for details.

NC State Game Watch
Saturday, October 8th, 9:00 am (Pacific Time)
After a win-through-more-offense game last week, this week’s game should show if we’re making any progress on the defensive side. We’ve only faced NC State once before, in the Gator Bowl during Tyrone Willingham’s first season. The outcome was a rather decisive loss. NC State is #37 in scoring defense, so it seems unlikely we’ll pile up another 50 points, as they are allowing only 21 points per game. Yes, their opponents have not been top-25 caliber, and yes, their one loss was vs. 2-3 East Carolina, so this contest shouldn’t be as tough as the two that will follow (Stanford & Miami). What this game should be is a measure of progress, and an indicator of how our October will go. Note that there is still some risk to the game time, given the severe weather which will be hitting the East Cost this weekend, so check your favorite sports websites to confirm we’re still on for our 9am (Pacific Time) start. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

8th Annual Fall Crawl (FB Link)
Saturday, October 8th, 11:30am (registration); Noon (start)
Every year, our (mostly young) alumni compete with other local alumni groups in this annual tradition organized by the Duke club. Join Young Alumni coordinators Jackie Rodriguez ’10 and Roger Sammon ’14 as they lead the Irish team to victory. Stops along the crawl will include Basic (starting point), EVTB, Knotty Barrel, Bootlegger, Social Tap, The Deck at Moonshine Flats (In that order).

Syracuse Game Watch, Fall Crawl, Domerpreneurs, Community & USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

The next few months will be busy for San Diego Club events, with quite a list of diverse events offering opportunities for you to join fellow Domers socially, professionally and in support of our community. We hope to see you at one!

Syracuse Game Watch
Saturday, October 1st, 9:00 pm (Pacific Time)
This week, our Irish have another winnable game. While we’re a difficult-to-talk-about #100 in scoring defense, the Orange are worse at #105, allowing one more point per game than the Irish, meanwhile the Irish are scoring almost 10 points more per game than ‘cuse. Defensive issues like we have aren’t fixed in one week; nevertheless, the Irish are 13-point favorites, and have something to prove, as individuals and as a team. Come cheer them on with your fellow Irish family members. Kickoff time allows a unique opportunity for a breakfast-game watch as well. We have confirmed that both establishments will be open at 9am for the game! You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

8th Annual Fall Crawl (FB Link)
Saturday, October 8th, 11:30am (registration); Noon (start)
Every year, our (mostly young) alumni compete with other local alumni groups in this annual tradition organized by the Duke club. Join Young Alumni coordinators Jackie Rodriguez ’10 and Roger Sammon ’14 as they lead the Irish team to victory. Stops along the crawl will include Basic (starting point), EVTB, Knotty Barrel, Bootlegger, Social Tap, The Deck at Moonshine Flats (In that order). Your $15 ($20 at the door) includes pizza at Basic, plus a specialty drink at TWO different pub crawl locations, plus drink specials at ALL locations, plus a raffle ticket for prizes at ALL locations, plus a souvenir item (limited to the first 100 people that register so register soon!) plus an afternoon of fun with awesome young professional peeps in San Diego!

Duke Game Watch, Young Alumni HH, Domerpreneurs do Cider & More!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Just like that, it’s officially fall. As the students are now back in school and working hard, we’re also working hard to put together some great events. Read on for the details. We hope to see you at one of them!

Duke Game Watch!
Saturday, September 24th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
This week, we have a battle of ACC 1-win-2-loss teams, but I’m pretty sure that’s where the similarities end. NDs losses come to #21 Texas and #8 MSU, while Duke’s losses were to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The Irish are averaging 38 points per game, while Duke is earning 25.3. Duke is also 0-3 on FGs this year with their Freshman kicker, while ND is 2-3. Duke does have better stats for defense, with 25 tackles for loss (102 yards) vs. the Irish 14 TFL (36 yards). Bottom line, the Irish are 20-point favorites heading into this home game, so it should be an enjoyable victory. Also of note, the Duke club will be joining our Downtown/EVT game watch this week, so we’ll have the opportunity to display the ND spirit first-hand to our ACC competitors. Kickoff time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our two fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

MSU Game Watch, Finance, Seniors, Community and More!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

I hope you’re all enjoying the cooler weather in this second week of September. Lots of great events coming up so I’ll get right to it…

Michigan State Game Watch!
Saturday, September 17th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
After winning a … winnable game vs. Nevada, the Irish have another chance to prove themselves against familiar opponent and 12th-ranked Michigan State. MSU has only one game under their belt this year, a 28-13 win over Furman, so hard to draw much conclusion from their season-to-date stats (except perhaps that MSU is not Alabama). In any case, ND-MSU games more often than not provide some great moments – bet that MSU pulls out a trick play or two, so we’ll get to see how this young Irish defense responds. Game time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our two fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego
