What else do we have in store for this year? How about a cigar roller out on the patio by the fireplace?
How about batting cages? How about tours of the ballpark?
Last year the demand came in for games. We heard you. Pool Tables, Ping Pong Tables, Air Hockey, and live tournament video games running all night long! As usual there will be drinks served all night, would we ever throw a party without the nectar of the Yetis?
Aside from the fun photobooth opportunity, we have something special. Get YOUR PHOTO taken with not one... but TWO WORLD SERIES TROPHIES!!!
If you ask Claes how best to experience his music, he will smile and say, “Join me at my next concert!” His live performance has been shaped by a life of touring the road, building fans from the Highlands of Scotland to the Turquoise Sea of the Caribbean.
Claes, a born performer, spent his childhood in Scandinavia, where he grew up listening to artists such as Paul Simon, Sting, Mark Knopfler, and Dave Matthews.
Performing started early at the age of 8 when Claes first picked up his mother’s guitar. Being left-handed, he took a cue from Jimmy Hendrix, stringing the guitar upside down. This worked well, until his mother got fed up with not being able to play her own instrument, at which point Claes taught himself to play right handed.

B Legit!!!! and special surprise guests to accompany :)
Keep an eye out for this bay area legend in the crowd before and after his performance. He's looking for hot gaming startups to invest in!

Anticipation buildup #2
Not only are we going explosive on the entertainment but there will be celebrity investors mingling in the crowd looking to invest in game startups. We aren't mentioning names yet, those too will be announced shortly.

Billiards, bar, arcades, and EVEN a bowling alley are hidden away in this tucked behind the scenes Speakeasy at the Ballpark. Even more perks await to be announced (trust me, you'll be blown away) so stay tuned.
