LOS ANGELES (September 15, 2016) — The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Los Angeles (OSULA) is excited to announce a beautiful new “official viewing location” in Santa Monica for the 2016-17 season.
Imagine overlooking the Palisades and the Pacific Ocean, taking in breathtaking views of the sun setting over Malibu and the Santa Monica Pier… all while enjoying BUCKEYE FOOTBALL!!!
That’s what you’ll get at Ma’kai Restaurant & Lounge, located at the corner of Broadway and Ocean Avenues (101 Broadway Ave., Santa Monica, 91401), which is complete with 16 new HD television screens to follow all the thrilling Buckeye action on the gridiron.
Ma’kai general manager Ramar Green, along with Buckeye Murphy Moore III of the ownership team, encourage Ohio State fans to take advantage of their $4-off discount on your check (food only) and drink specials that include highlight situations like Buckeye touchdowns and interceptions by the “Silver Bullet” defense. These special OSULA discounts are good only on game days and for the duration of the game.
“We are extremely excited to have Ma’kai Restaurant & Lounge as our new game-watch location in Santa Monica,” says OSULA President Maurice Hall, Buckeye alum and running back on tOSU’s 2002 national championship team. “We’ve always had tremendous support from Buckeye fans in the West L.A. area, and we’re very encouraged with the enthusiasm that Murphy, Ramar and the Ma’kai management team have shown to make this a terrific site for even more OSU fans to mix and mingle and enjoy the games.”
In addition to its commitment to a great new West L.A. game-day experience for Buckeye fans, Ma’kai also will be donating funds to OSULA in support of club scholarships.
