East Bay Spring Break
Diablo has some ideas to create spring break in your own East Bay backyard.
This month, college kids head to Cabo or Lake Havasu for the debauchery that is spring break. For those of you who want to relive your youth—or indulge your midlife crisis—here’s how to get your spring break on without even leaving home.
SUNDAY: Start off your spring break week with some extreme fun: Alameda-based Icarus Bungee organizes jumps off of bridges that are located within a five-hour drive of the San Francisco Bay Area. icarusbungee.com.
MONDAY: How about making an illicit trip to Cuba? Havana restaurant in Walnut Creek makes it easy to get into a Caribbean state of mind, with its Mojito Mondays, featuring half-priced mojitos and fish taco platters for just $5. havanarestaurant.net.
TUESDAY: Who’s up for 50 cent wings? Down 12 blazin’ wings in six minutes—without a drink, ranch dressing, or wiping your mouth—to score a photo on the wall of fame at Buffalo Wild Wings in Dublin. buffalowildwings.com.
WEDNESDAY: Awww, yeah. Pleasanton’s Status Nightclub hosts Weekend Wednesdays College Night—$2 to $3 well drinks and drafts before 11 p.m. statusnightclubinfo.com.
THURSDAY: The new Los Panchos in Danville has a full bar! Tequila shots and crispy tacos, anyone? lospanchosrestaurant.com.
FRIDAY: Crash a frat party at UC Berkeley. Just tell them you’re with Diablo Delta Phi, and you’re there for the keg-bong. campuslife.berkeley.edu/greek.
SATURDAY: Wake up to a latte served by a bikini-clad barista at Fremont’s Your Coffee Cups drive-through. yourcoffeecups.com.
Then, start a wet T-shirt contest and soapsuds dance party at the coin-op car wash in San Ramon. OK, we’re officially out of ideas.
