JOCK 2 (Sept 14-16, 2012)

We hope you like balls, because we're calling all rough and tough men for a weekend of sports uniforms, knee pads, and all the balls you can handle. That's right, this one is for all you SPORTS FANS and admirers of SPORT UNIFORMS. So dig up your old football gear, break out your favorite baseball hat, and show off that tight little singlet you've been hiding in the back of your draw. We want you to show us what team you play for and while you're at it, show us what your favorite position is.

HOTEL INFO: Be sure to book your room soon because LarkFEST, Upstate NY's largest one day music festival, will also be going on that weekend and it's just right down the block from the Marriott Townplace Suites! Ask for the Bear Albany DISCOUNT when calling to get our special rates (518-860-1500) and remember, there's no registration fees and the hotel has a FREE SHUTTLE so you don't have to drive to the bars!

Friday Evening

JOCK weekend kicks off on Friday Sept 14th @ WaterWorks Pub for our BEARAOKE MEAT & GREET (76 Central Ave). It's a great time to "meat" new friends and "greet" buddies that you haven't seen in a while. WaterWorks Pub always has a great atmosphere, awesome drink specials, free pizza & wings, and NO COVER for all of our BEAR ALBANY buds. See who's going...

Saturday Afternoon

Head down to the hotel pool on Saturday around noon and enjoy some time making new friends in the hot tub with your fellow bears. Make sure you introduce yourself and don't forget to smile so we all remember your handsome mug. Or if you're looking to get some fresh air, check out the Beekman Boys, 2012 Sharon Springs NY Harvest Festival (pictures from last year's festival can be found here). The main festival runs from 9am-5pm on Saturday and it's not that far of a drive from Albany.

Or you can take a small walk down the block to LarkFEST, Upstate New York's largest one-day street festival celebrating the Heart of Albany. The event hosts hundreds of vendors, 2 stages of music with both local and national headlining music acts. With an estimated 80,000 people descending upon Lark Street, this is the event to not miss! LarkFEST was voted in the top 3 "Best Arts Event" in both 2009 and 2010. There will be fantastic music, over a hundred unique vendors, great food, and more! See who's going...

Saturday Evening

At 9pm, come out to ROCKS Bar for JOCK and be sure to wear your favorite SPORTS GEAR (77 Central Ave). Dig up your old football gear, break out your favorite baseball hat, and show off that tight little singlet you've been hiding in the back of your draw. As always, we'll have great drink specials, FREE PIZZA around midnight, and the dance club will be PUMPING with musical PLEASURE all night long! And while you're exploring every DARK CORNER of the bar, remember that what happens in Albany, stays in Albany. See who's going...

Sunday Brunch

We're doing Brunch at our favorite spot Cafe 217. Swing by anytime between 9am and 1pm (menu here). The food is great and all of you will get a 20% discount just by telling the waitress you're with Bear Albany group! If you are with a private group of friends larger than 6 and would like to be seated next to each other, please let the restaurant know the number and what time you plan to arrive so that Cafe 217 can make proper arrangements (518-462-0050). See who's going...
