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 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
