EVERYTHING ONE could want in a bar--its own home-brewed beer, good grub and one's own stein hanging from the rafters as part of the Mug Club. Plus there's plenty of Big Game tradition. From a seat at the tables, which are the original benches from Memorial Stadium, you can stare up at the goalposts from the 2002 Big Game (won by Cal, 30--7) that adorn the ceiling. Come in post-football or -hoops and drink with the Cal band and Oski the Bear (the mascot), who might be prevailed upon to do his trick of drinking two steins through a tube funneled through one of his eyeholes.

The National Anaheim
ACROSS THE street from Angel Stadium stands one of Southern California's most popular sports watering hole. Though crowds convene for all sports, baseball provides the dominant motif at the National. The place is laid out like a baseball diamond, with real stadium seats (signed by various sports figures) and a bar area where the infield would be. Looking for a bite to eat? Head out to the rightfield stands for the restaurant area; in the leftfield stands a game of pool is available on one of the National's 11 full-sized tables. For those who prefer the open air, go deep to the Outfield, the National's expansive patio.
