The Game!

Join local Harvard and Yale alumns at Dargan's Pub to watch the annual football match between the Harvard Crimson and the Yale Bulldogs.

In 1916, Yale coach T.A.D. Jones inspired his players by asserting "Gentlemen, you are now going to play football against Harvard. Never again in your whole life will you do anything so important."  The Game is the annual football match between Harvard and Yale, a rivalry that began in 1875. (Learn more about the history and cultural significance of The Game at its Wikipedia entry.)

The Harvard Club of Santa Barbara (HCSB) has arranged for a gathering at Dargan’s Irish Pub & Restaurant in Santa Barbara to watch the The Game on Saturday, November 21st. HCSB invites all local Harvard and Yale alums, including their families and friends, to attend this festive event.

The broadcast on the NBC Sports Network will start at 11:30 am (2:30 pm in New Haven). For our convenience, Paul Dargan will open his pub 30 minutes early that day, at 11:00 am. Paul would like to have a good estimate of our turnout so please RSVP here on this page if you plan to attend.

Dargan’s is very conveniently located at 18 East Ortega Street, behind the city parking lot on Anacapa Street (right-hand side, heading south) between East Ortega Street and East Cota Street.
