Thanks to all those that attended our 2nd Annual Spartan Family Picnic! We had nearly 100 people attend, including several of our newly admitted students and their families. We wish our new Bay Area Spartans well and hope they have a fantastic first year on campus! Special thanks to our hosts and super planners The Dennis Family for all their help with the event, we couldn’t have done it without you!


Hard to believe it’s already time for MSU Football! This season we will again be gathering the Spartan faithful at our home bar, The Brick Yard in San Francisco! The owner and management at The Brick Yard have been a great partner of ours, donating substantially to our scholarship fund at the end of last season. If you bought a club t-shirt or attended a paid event, you also helped us towards our scholarship fundraising goal. We are at almost 65% of our $30K goal. Thank you!

The first game watch of the season is tomorrow night, 4pm PT kickoff for the game versus Western Michigan. This is the first time that the football team has travelled on the road to WMU’s campus. For us West Coasters, it’s a great happy hour kickoff time. Our signature cocktail, The MSU Mule, made with real Detroit Vernor’s, will be back on special, as well as $2 off buckets of Coors Light. Kick off your holiday weekend with us tomorrow night!

You also don’t want to miss the second game of the season, because it’s going to be a big game nationally: MSU vs Oregon! That’s a Saturday game with a 5pm kickoff on Sept 12th. We’ll see you at The Brick Yard!
