And second things second – the Casbah has received the following request.  We are solely passing on the information to talented peeps.  Any questions, please do not ask us, but refer to the contact information in the note.  The San Jose Casbah is simply the messenger.

I’m contacting you on behalf of the Copa America Centenario taking place at Levis Stadium on Friday June 3rd.

We’re currently recruiting volunteer cast members and thought some of your members would be a great fit or perhaps could help us get the word out about this incredible opportunity. It will be an exciting event to participate in which will be broadcast to over a million viewers! It is also a chance to meet new people, perform with big name stars and most of all have lots of fun. 

The rehearsal venue will be the San Jose University – Spartan Stadium. And cast members, who must be 15years or older,  will require a commitment of:

Saturday May 21st – 12:30 to 6:30 pm Cast Orientation/Rehearsal

Sunday May 22nd – 9:30 to 1:30pm or 2:00 to 6:30pm depending on which cast group they belong to

Assistant Stage Manager

Copa America Centenario


With less than two months away to prepare, it is time to revisit the checklist:

  • Oil the elbow joints. (Drinks don’t pour themselves.)
  • Grease the knee joints. (There’s going to be some jumping out of seats.
  • Apologize to the neighbors. (There WILL be some yelling practice going on.)
  • Dust off the wooden spoons. (There will be some Galaxy ass-whooping happening!)
  • Have your bag ready to go. (We may need to escort the defeated back to their own planet.)
  • And last, but not least, pay for yo’ food! (New menu this year!!!)


I know everyone looks forward to those amazingly yummy tacos and quesadillas provided by our amazingly awesome taco guy, but we’ve decided to change it up a bit this year.  Courtesy of our same amazingly awesome taco guy, the meal not to be missed will be as follows:


Pulled Pork Sandwiches

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Baked Beans


Corn on the Cob

Grab yourself a napkin and wipe up that drool.  Now get yourself to Paypal and reserve your spot for just $15/person (and yes, it will be all-you-can-eat, just like always!), or pay in cash at your nearest tailgate.

Off to NomNom Land

As usual, wristbands will be handed out at the California Clasico tailgate.  Make your payments early so we can give Alberto and his crew an accurate count, so he can make sure all walk away happy and full!


Keep an eye out for future information!
