Come hangout with our good buddies Bring Back the Brown, Green Flash and Knockaround Sunglasses this Friday (4/3) for a Padres celebration! That’s right, from Noon to 10PM you can join in on the baseball action with all new BBTB growlers (limited run of 100), new brown & gold Green Flash merch, Knockaround sunglass giveaways and a Westside Love pop-up shop.
Also, the Green Flash Gastro Truck will be serving baseball themed dishes throughout the day including TJ Hot Dogs and Chili Cheese Nachos.
Also added, Padres and Pints will be in the house chatting about the upcoming season. Maybe with a guest? Stay tuned!
This Wednesday (5/15/13) Knockaround Sunglasses is having an event at Mission Brewery from 6PM-10PM to hype up their giveaway at Petco Park before the Padres/Nationals game on Friday (5/17/13).
Knockaround will have a pop-up shop, there will be a photo booth, music, Padres trivia, the beer will be flowing and we’ll be there filming a Padres and Pints. Everyone is invited and admission is FREE. So come join us!
Last week I examined the disappointing 2013 Padres Promotional Schedule. To put it nicely, fans were underwhelmed by the lack of giveaways and the quality of those giveaways and the promotional events left a lot to be desired.
Often times fans in general are quick to trash something but sometimes aren’t realistic (“ARGHHH Y U NO TRADE FOR STANTON PADRES!!!”) or don’t provide any ideas to solving the problem (“ARGGGHHHHH THE PADRES NEED TO SIGN A PREMIERE SS! Y THEY NO GET ONE!!! Oh, what is that? There wasn’t one available? Oh….well I’m still going to yell because I have NO ANSWERS…ARGHHHH”). I plan to be both realistic and give some new ideas to spice up this bland schedule. I won’t come up with outlandish stuff like Turn Ahead the Clock Night (That’s for you Wayne), giveaways every day of the week or have an absurd bobblehead set* of past owners (I’m looking at you Ghost). I will use the Padres current schedule, use the nights that they have already assigned (PCL, 80’s, ’98) and work with what I have been given. Hopefully I come through for the fans!
