That time of the week again. Time to figure out where are we getting together to root for our Ben Ball warriors on Saturday night:

We are hoping there is going to be a sizeable contingent of Ben Ball fanatics traveling to Georgia. If you are in Atlanta and want to hook up with other Bruins for pre-game bash make sure to check out yellcrew's diary.
As for rest of the Bruins Nation, I have a feeling there are going to be all kinds of parties across the country. Once again we will list the shindigs from alum groups we have been listing through this March Madness (call it the good luck charm listings):
- Let's start with the Big Apple this week. I showed up at their last part for a bit. It was pretty incredible. Almost 300 alums packed a bar in East Village. We ended up going to another bar in East Village where we ended up watching the game with more Bruins. So the NYC club is setting up two parties for Saturday night. The RSVP list for the first location is already closed. The second location is at Village Pourhouse, 64 3rd Avenue, New York. Almost 200 folks have already RSVPed for that game. So if you haven't done it yet you can RSVP by going here.
- Just like NYC, the DC alumni club get together for watching the Ben Ball warriors have been blowing up. The Ugly Mug is going to be packed with Bruins. If you are in the nation's capital and want to join up with other Bruins, come out to the the Ugly Mug at 723 8th St SE (near the Hill). If you are taking the Metro, take the Blue/Orange line to Eastern Market Metro Stop.
- Back in LA, alums ('South Bay Bruins') are getting together in Manhattan Beach to watch Thursday's night's game. People are getting together at Mr. Pockets, 512 N. Sepulveda Blvd. (N of Artesia, S of Manhattan Beach Blvd, Manhattan Beach, CA. RSVP details here.
- Going down the 405, Orange County Bruins are setting up their party at At the Marlarkey's Irish Pub, 3111 Newport Blvd, Newport Beach. Here are the details.
As always please note even though these get togethers are hosted by alums - of course, I am sure there are open to every member of Bruins Nation.
