Like a lot of people, we’re thinking a lot about San Antonio this weekend. And not just because the nation’s hottest team (Michigan) is playing the best team (Villanova) in the NCAA Championship tonight in the Alamodome. It’s Wolverines versus Wildcats, and the fur will surely fly.
We’re also already thinking about our Welcome Party at the Westin Riverwalk, our Dad 2.019 venue that overlooks the main party artery of America’s seventh-biggest city. And if you want to be there for our eight Summit, we’ve opened the ticket window for a 72-hour pop-up Final Four Sale for just $149–less than half of the eventual $299 walk-up price!
There’s something else on our minds, though, and it’s something cool that happened just off to the side of the spotlight. Our friends at Dove Men+Care are down in San Antonio for the Final Four, and earlier this week they held a brief ceremony to open a new park they helped build with the NCAA and San Antonio Sports. Sixty-four days ago, Legacy Park at Higgs Carter King School was just a patch of dirt; now, there are walking trails, a soccer field, and a basketball court, and San Antonio Spurs legend David “The Admiral” Robinson (see above) was posing with a lot of happy kids.
You can see the happy, windblown event–complete with the ritual net-hanging–here.
