We still aren't sure when or if baseball will be played at Petco Park in 2020 but now we know the jewel in Downtown San Diego's East Village is going to start hosting big events again. The Padres are joining several other public spots in starting to re-open in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic with a unique way to have fun while still staying socially distant.
In this week's OnFriar Podcast, NBC 7's Darnay Tripp and Derek Togerson talk with Padres President of Business Operations Erik Greupner, who gives us a sneak peek at some of the fun events the Friars are planning. There will be music, Hall of Famers ... and the real Ron Burgundy?
The full story and the list of bands involved can be found here:
Also on June 5 and June 6 the Lexus Lot will host graduations for local high schools, and on the evening of June 6 there will be a pair of drive-in movie showings of the classic film Anchorman. The first showing is 8:30 p.m. and the second starts at 11:30 p.m. For information on how to purchase tickets for the movies click here.
The OnFriar crew also gives an update on when the baseball players could be coming back and how comments from one of the game's most prominent players paint a potentially problematic picture for the players and owners trying to get back on the same page.
