Da Bears v. The Rams - Tailgate and NFL Game - Nov. 2019
UChicagoLA fires up the party before cheering on da Bears!
The University of Chicago Alumni Club of Los Angeles enjoyed a fun networking tailgate prior to watching the hometown Chicago Bears take on the (other) hometown Los Angeles Rams at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum.
The tailgate was a great success with many alumni from all schools of the University of Chicago coming together to celebrate and cheer for their favorite team. Catered Chicago style hot dogs, pizza, and chicken (in the style of Harold's Chicken Shack) were provided along with a variety of beverages. We even had a special guest (a famous University of Chicago astrophysics professor) appear at the tailgate to join in the fun.
The Bears ultimately lost -- but a good time was had by all and many new connections were made among alumni.
Keep your eyes open for the next time the Bears come to town -- probably at the new high-tech SoFi Stadium currently being built!
Special thanks to alumnus Dante A. Bacani for organizing and to the University of Chicago for partially funding the tailgate experience!
