As the Raider Nation awaits Sunday’s matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the Chicago Bears at the Black Hole, some Raiders fans can’t wait to get the party started.
Ricky’s Sports Theatre and Grill in San Leandro, California, is located just south of the Capital of the Raider Nation, Oakland, California. Not surprisingly, Ricky’s has a Raider Rally Party planned the evening before the game between Oakland and Chicago on 26 November 2011.
DJ Dino will spin the discs, and there will be live music by Raiderhed. Things will get off to a rather early start: at 5.00 pm.
Pictured above: Raiders fans rooting for Oakland at the Monday Night game against the Denver Broncos last September at Ricky’s Sports Theatre and Grill in San Leandro.
Two events are planned in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is in the Heart of Raiders Country.
The Hazmat Boyz of Black Sunday fame will perform Saturday night at Lucky’s Bar and Grill, and Raiders fan Kevin is hoping that other Raiders fans will stop by Club Nikko’s, which he manages, at the Tropicana Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
He’d appreciate that you first get in touch (see below for details).
Where to Party Before the Raiders Bears Game
What follows is a short list of party options for Raiders fans this weekend.
