WHERE DO YOU WATCH THE CHARGERS PLAY???


Who's pumped up for Monday night?  How about Sunday?  Thursday?  GAMEDAY - we are.

Charger Meetups are popping up in cities around the world. So far Chicago has the largest Chargers Meetup on the map. 
Here are a couple notes to make your Chargers Meetup awesome...

PICK A MEETUP SPOT

Every Meetup should have a venue -- after all, you need to know where to meet!  If you're the organizer, you should set a 
venue. If there is no Organizer, step up to declare the spot in your town, or leave the venue in the comments.

GET THE WORD OUT TO FELLOW FANS

Chargers games are better when you watch with Chargers fans. Help get the word out to fans now. Get the word out to bolts 
blogs, communities, on Facebook/Twitter, and here on CHARGERTOM.COM . Tell them to sign up at http://meetup.com/chargers 
to help put their city on the map.  We will give a shout out to the largest Chargers Meetup.

California State Flag Chargers group with exclusive gathering place has formed in Huntington Beach, California

 I'm pleased to announce that I believe I have found our new home at Michael's Sport's Pub in Westminster. (Right off the 405 Freeway at Bolsa Ave. / Westminster Blvd.)

This place is big, bright, has good food and drink, good service and was actually my first choice when searching for a place last year.  They plan to put us in our own area, up by the pool tables, where we'll have our own sound, big screen TV and two smaller TV's to view the Charger games!

I am hoping that this is a good fit for our group and will encourage a high attendance rate.  I pay for this meetup out of my own pocket and all I ask in return is for people to show up.  It's been disappointing that out of some 93 members, we're only getting about 6-10 people showing up, per game so far.  With turn out like that, I'm not sure how long I will be able to continue to do this group, after this season.

So please, tell your friends, spread the word, come out, show up and support the group...and your team!  I am going to reserve the right to cancel future events of 10 or less attendees. So please be sure that you 'Confirm' your RSVP for an event when you receive the email request to do so.

Also, we're all adults, we all know that you need to tip at least 15% or more for good service.  If you need a tip calculator, I have one on my phone.  A good rule of thumb is to double the tax amount.  We need a viewing place so let's not burn bridges. These servers work hard bringing us our drinks and food for 3+ hours, so please have respect for both their time/profession and for our group.

I am very much looking forward to trying Michael's.  I hope you will come out and join me.  I look forward to seeing your faces! Go Bolts!!!

Cheers, Liane, Organizer~SoCal Charger Fans.  Go to the Meetup site and join the Group for all the information and to meet a GREAT group of Charger's people.  Spread the word to all your friends and acquaintances in and around the Huntington Beach/Orange County area.  Rise up Charger fans!!!  Loud and proud!  CLICK THE LINK NOW ....

California State FlagI don't yet have a bar designated ... but I would like to get LA area Chargers fans to join my groups:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/164668530281659/
AND 
http://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Area-Chargers-Fans/

Once we have enough people in the group, I plan to approach a bar in LA and ask them to make it the "Official" Chargers bar of Los Angeles.  Join up now and let's hang.

I live and work in the South bay (if you aren't familiar, that is the: Hermosa Beach/Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach area).  So that area would be convenient for me, but I am willing to travel to where the majority of Charger fans want to go.  Whether that is the Westside (Santa Monica/Venice/West LA/Culver City) Downtown, Hollywood, the Valley or other.  It is astounding that LA doesn't have even one bar that is a Chargers bar.  justinmkeller@gmail.com

New Mexico State Flag My name is Wolfgang and I am originally from San Diego, Allied Gardens (just north of SDSU) to be exact. I recently moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and found a place called Spectators. The satellite manager there, Chris H. is a die-hard Charger fan and does his best to get the Bolts on one of the main screens each Sunday. I am trying to get as many Charger fans in Albuquerque as possible to know about the place so that we can have the "majority rules" influence in deciding which screen the Chargers are shown on as well as the primary sound from that game. Spectators is located at the corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo, in the Smiths shopping center - 5850 Eubank Blvd., NE, #59, Phone 505-275-1166. Come join us and Go Bolts!!!!

Its pretty large and impersonal so if you are looking for more "ownership", try Rudy's below ...


California State FlagRudy's Pub and Grill, 3110 Newport Blvd., Newport Beach OC (Orange County), California. If all you need to make you happy is a cold brew and a laid-back, friendly place to watch the game on TV, give Rudy's a try. Billed as one of the area's most popular sports bars, Rudy's has the distinct look and feel of a neighborhood haunt, from framed photographs to a friendly waitstaff, who make it a point to learn the names of repeat customers. TVs of all shapes and sizes (30 plasma screens!) surround the main seating area, promising clear sight lines no matter how packed the place is. A retractable roof and a patio bar are great when the weather's particularly nice.  949-723-0293 rudyspubandgrill.com

Texas State Flag  I grew up in Poway, California and lived all over SoCal.  I have ALWAYS been a Chargers fan; no bandwagon here!  I even had season tickets when I lived up in Orange County.  My family has all moved to San Antonio, Texas and we go to the Rolling Oaks Golf Course off of 1604 & Judson, on the northside, to watch the games.  All Chargers fans in the San Antonio area are invited to join us so more and more Bolts Fans can show their support together.

Also die-hard Bolt fans are at every game at Claudia's Sports Pub and Grill on SE 30th and Hawthorne.  Come watch a game with us; you'll feel like you're "at home."  A diverse menu, featuring quality food in plentiful portions, has made Claudia’s the most popular tavern eatery.  To compliment our fine food, we have one of Oregon’s largest selection of imported, micro, and domestic beers.  For your sports viewing, we currently offer high definition big screen TV, ten satellite receivers, as well as numerous monitors. Claudia’s prides itself in continuing to provide the best in sports viewing.  3006 S.E. Hawthorne, Portland, Oregon.  Phone 503.232.7243

    Texas State FlagFrankie's Sports Bar and Grill opened in the summer of 2000.  Since that time it has grown from a humble, local haunt into the finest sports bar Dallas, Texas has to offer.  Maintaining its promise of above standard cuisine, Frankie's has perfected the art of "Bar Food" into what USA Today referred to as, ''...a menu on steroids."  But we know it takes more than great food to be a great sports bar.  Add to our atmosphere, the deluge of light and activity as you are surrounded by more than thirty High-Definition plasma televisions - nary a bad seat in the house.  These televisions, which include two 10' HDTV projection systems and two separate patios, each with two 42" HD plasmas, deliver the best of today's sports programming.  All the major DirecTV packages (Professional and Collegiate) as well as UFC and Setanta World Cup Soccer action can be seen from every corner of this "over sized den."  If sound is important to you, rest assured you can hear your game on wireless receivers right at your table so you won't miss anything from the kickoff to the final whistle.  3227 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, TX  75204, Phone (214) 999-8932


    Colorado State FlagJeremy says, the Sports Column in LoDo, Denver, Colorado is a cool place to watch any of the Chargers' games.  Over 40 TV's with about 10 of them being giant projection screens.  If you are in Denver area and want to see the Bolts kick some butt, this is the place.  Although the owner's can be a little cold when the Broncos lose.  They always try to meet the fans needs.

    Sports Column is located in lower downtown, Denver, or LoDo, just a football's throw from Coors Field at 1930 Blake Street.  From I-25, take the 20th Street Exit following signs to Coors Field.  Turn right at the third stoplight (Blake Street) and look for the historical grain elevator and the purple awnings on your left.  303.296.1930

    Lakewood, Washington The Ram is a private, independent, family-owned and operated restaurant business. We were born on February 26, 1971 when our founders took their entrepreneurial spirit and experiences they received making pizza and serving beer at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor to open their own restaurant. That first restaurant was called the Ram Pub, which was a “Deluxe Tavern” that served hot food, including cook-your-own burgers and steaks, along with beer and wine.

    SAN DIEGO
    San Diego City FlagCALIFORNIA

    According to its website, The High Dive is "an upscale dive bar."  Absolutely.  If you know The High Dive, you understand what this means.  It's small, dark despite its wall of windows, full of vintage decor, weathered furniture and fixtures, yet has a wealth of plasma televisions, a high-tech sound system and serves Amstel Light.

    If you go to The High Dive during football season, make sure you are a San Diego Charger fan.  There are several aspects of The High Dive that set it apart from other sports bars, and to appreciate any of them, you had better love the Chargers.  The Dive is too small for its typical football crowd, but there are plenty of televisions to accommodate a multitude of fans.  That is, until the Charger game comes on.  If you have come to watch one of the morning match ups, pray your game doesn't go into overtime.  When the Chargers play, every TV, except for the one facing the bathroom, switches over.

    If the television imbalance merely upsets the out-of-town fan, the steady stream of powder-blue and gold pouring in through the door usually clears them out.  San Diego fans, and indeed San Diegans themselves, are among the most considerate in the world, but tables at The Dive are always at a premium, and if you get caught in the bar not wearing Charger gear, everyone who is will come up and ask you, politely, "are you leaving?"

    Then, of course, there is The Shrine.  LaDanian Tomlinson, San Diego's running back and savior, has an altar mounted on the north wall, featuring photos, incense, prayer-candles and assorted LT-memorabilia.  In what can only be labeled as charming, or, for the out-of-towner, the last straw, the staff holds a ceremony in homage of the indomitable #21.  Accompanied by the motivating crescendo of the theme from Superman, a bartender and entourage of servers parade a can of Red Bull around as much of the room as they can reach, then place it on the altar, to the raucous cheers of a dedicated, and now wholly inspired congregation.

    If the non-fan hasn't left by now, they are simply asking for it.  Every time the Chargers score, the "San Diego Super Chargers" song is blasted, in its entirety, through the PA.  If you do not love the Chargers, you already hate this song.  It is, admittedly, the auditory equivalent of un-anesthetized dental surgery, and hearing it several times in the same afternoon will make you wish for death.

    The Dive serves grill fare, has a full bar, and the prices are rather reasonable, probably due to it's not-entirely-central location.  Come to The High Dive on a Sunday, and if you are not one already, be a Charger fan for a day.  Get swept up in one of a few pure displays of San Diego spirit, pride, and camaraderie.  Come back on the bye week if you want to see how the place actually looks.
