Avaya Stadium! 

This is Avaya Stadium, home of the San Jose Earthquakes and North Americas Largest outdoor bar! Jigsaw is quickly approaching it's 5th anniversary and I've been thinking of how we can celebrate. Our anniversary falls on Labor day this year, Monday 09/03, which many people may have plans for. So I came up with a 2 part celebration -

Part 1 - Jigsaw goes to Avaya Stadium for a game on Saturday 08/25 @ 6:45pm, friends, family and kids welcome, tickets are $35/each. I setup a block of tickets for us (near the bar...and food trucks) and will need an accurate ticket count. Please sign up at the Kiosk at the gym by Thursday 07/26, I have to put down a deposit ASAP to reserve our seats. 

Part 2 - Workout and potluck BBQ at Jigsaw on Monday 09/03. Since the holiday falls on our anniversary we will have a workout at 9am and then follow it with a potluck BBQ. Friends and family welcome, if you are in town come hang out an share some memories!
