We’re just days away from Washington’s Holiday Bowl match-up against Nebraska, and it’s not looking very California-ish in San Diego. Heavy rains flooded Qualcomm Stadium this week, but the football gods appear to be in our favor as the weather report for game day is for 56 degrees and party sunny.
A quick reminder that the official pre-game party for Husky fans in San Diego is the Husky Holiday Warm Up presented by WallyPark Premier Airport Parking. I’m on the party planning committee and have the inside scoop: this baby is going to rock, trust me. The UW Alumni Association goes all out for Warm Up parties each year, but nothing compares to a UW bowl game.
The night before the football game we are hosting Husky Happy Hours at Moondoggies and Pacific Beach Bar & Grill down by the beach in San Diego. Happy hour prices go all night for fans wearing purple, and I’ll be there with the Flip camera in hand. Keep checking the blog for all the Holiday Bowl details.
Last but not least, we’re selling limited edition buttons and “I love the UW” T-shirts tied to this year’s Holiday Bowl festivities. Game day buttons have been a UWAA tradition for decades, but this is the first time we are making them available to the general public. Cost is $10 for a souvenir button and proceeds go to UWAA scholarship programs. It’s a good cause, and all your Husky buddies will want one.
