I am just curious if anyone that is regular on the forum goes to any of the game watch locations? I am in Monterey, and though I keep hearing that there are Buckeyes in the area, there does not seem to be any formal / semi-formal gathering of fans at any particular location. Perhaps just because the area is so transient with tourists. I am debating whether it would be worth it to drive up if any of these locations make watching the game with fellow fans enjoyable. Also curious about crowd levels though, when I lived in Washington DC, the Buckeye bars were awesome, but so slammed you couldn't move.
FWIW I drive to Santa Cruz for a gym about 4-5 times a week so commute isnt a huge deal.
