Top Social Singles Event Leads Into OTL’s Second Weekend
That’s because Opening Day in 2016 is not on its traditional Wednesday, but on a Friday. Yes, a Friday. The date is July 15. This could lead to breaking the all-time attendance record of 47,339 set in 2012.
It most certainly will set a San Diego record for largest number of three-martini (or beer, cocktail, margarita) lunches taken on a single day.
After all, it’s one of the top social events of the year for San Diego’s singles and with it now leading into a weekend, it’s easy to envision a crowd approaching or even topping 50,000.
The track is actually better suited to hold 35,000-40,000, but that’s just one of the things you have to deal with on Opening Day. Patience is the key when getting drinks at the bar, food, betting and going to the restroom.
PubClub.com’s top tip for getting drinks on Del Mar Opening Day is to utilize the little stands outside of the bars and grandstands. There, you can get a shaker of margaritas or other concoctions in a third the time it takes to do so in a bar.
Now you want to hear more!? Opening Day 2016 is the day before the final weekend of the OTL Over The Line tournament on Fiesta Island, which is the biggest beach party in California.
Talk about a party weekend – whoa Nellie! San Diego is going to be one of the top party destinations in the world that second weekend in July.
