Where are the Pre-Game Festivities in LA?

Does anyone know of any pre-parties or gatherings near Staples prior to the game tomorrow? I just secured my tickets through StubHub, and am taking my 14 year old daughter to her first M Basketball game ever. Couldn’t be more thrilled! We have to pick up tix near Staples prior to the game, and will head up early. Anybody want to say hi, look for my kid in her Peppers jersey in section 217, row 1. But, we’d love to try to connect prior if there are any events.

That would be the better way to go. But I was just trying to score something decent without spending a dumb amount. So I went with StubHub, and have to go to Marriott to get them. Anticipating a long line. Go to that alumni event.
I think I’m wearing my Woodson jersey and kid will have her Peppers jersey.

Is it dumb to wear football jerseys to this?

It will be loud and crowded, and you may even have to wait to be served if you order at the bar. But you'll be amongst plenty of Michigan fans, so it's all worth it! I'm gonna be there tomorrow before the game and hopefully afterwards for a big party if we win! GO BLUE!!!

Take the 105 West and exit on Culver. When you see the Zankou chicken on the left, turn right. Take Venice and follow it all the way down, then you’re in Marina del Ray Stuaaartt!!

USC MBA student here and have been craving a good college environment since moving to LA. I haven’t felt more in Ann Arbor than Tom’s Urban before the game on Thursday. Incredible environment with some incredible alum. The excitement surrounding this team is second to none.
