I won a shopping party at Sports Basement

I've only been to the Sunnyvale Sports Basement a couple times. I bought a long sleeved jersey and a windbreaker there last winter and I barely remember writing my contact info on a little piece of paper to be entered into a drawing to win a "Shopping Party." Well after all these months I finally won!

What's a Shopping Party? Basically it's a 2 hour window where I can invite up to 200 people(!). During this time the store provides food and drinks to all who attend and everyone gets a 20% discount on anything in the store. Seems like a pretty sweet deal and sheer genius from a marketing perspective

So when is this happening? It will be next Friday, June 19, from 6pm to 8pm. They need a rough headcount to know how much food to bring and so I created an evite. If you think you'll make it, please send me a PM with your email address and I will add you.

Evite with all the info: http://www.evite.com/pages/invite/vi...KBFIZIAPGGERXB

Hope to see you there!

It's a pretty sweet set-up: decent beer and good snack. Sending PM. Thanks.

I'll be getting back from Germany that same day, but might not be able to pass-up a chance to go shopping.

This is tomorrow! If you think you'll make it, please rsvp on the evite. One thing on my to-buy list is some casual cycling shorts for commuting in.

probably going to get: 12-27 cassette, some good energy drink powder stuff, a jersey.

my wish list: snowboarding avalanche beacon, Garmin GPS (handheld), backcountry snowboarding pack.

This all depends on if I get the two checks I am supposed to be getting tomorrow.

Oh yes, take advantage of free beer.

I'll be there looking for swim stuff for the kids. Probably pick up some more bars and such too. I was able to "evite" myself with the link you posted above, so that's taken care of

Of course you need something ... base layer, shorts, jerseys ... can't have enough of those. I'm sure you'll find something you'll need.
