Arsenal FC kick off the 2015-2016 season this weekend against Chelsea FC in the Community Shield match.
And as we have for the past 7 (8?) years, we’ll be at Maggie McGarry’s in North Beach, cheering the Gunners on!
If our home pub has one drawback, it’s that Maggie’s is 21 and over only. Every season we field inquiries from local and visiting Gooners wanting to bring younger supporters to our match-viewings. Thus, we’re continuing an experiment we started with last season’s FA Cup Final.
Beginning with this weekend’s match, the San Francisco Athletic Club will be open for every Arsenal match beginning 7AM PT or later. Because the SFAC has a full kitchen, they can welcome Gooners of all ages.
SFAC’s will be flying the Bay Area Gooners banner, while breakfast and drink specials for BAG members will be available.

Looking forward to see you Gooners young and old this season!
