GenX Feb Club San Diego
If your memories of Yale include fire alarms that went off when it rained, dining hall strikes…come to think of it, clerical strikes, GESO walkouts, police union strikes…WOMEN, but absolutely no WiFi (and, who are we kidding, really, there wasn’t even internet unless you are on the tail end)…it was a time when the buttery in your college looked and smelled more like its nickname than the subterranean coffee houses they have today, and Grunge wasn’t just something you scraped out of the shower….then YOU are probably a GenX Yalie. We’re at that place now where we’re parenting and pivoting and living in the ‘burbs, so come to Del Mar and hang out with your people. (No cover, live music, full bar and kitchen available, pay your own tab.)
