Have lunch with a Quake

Not surprisingly with new ownership this year, the Quakes are doing some different promotions. One of them is “Lunch with a Quake,” which will be held Thursday (tomorrow) at Buffalo Wild Wings in Rancho Cucamonga. Quakes Gabe Jacobo and Will Smith will be in attendance from noon to 1 p.m. to talk to fans, and sign autographs during lunch.

It’s a nice promotion, both for the Quakes and Buffalo Wild Wings for fans to get to meet players outside of the ballpark. However, it might be even better to have it on a day when the Quakes are at home. That way, people who have their curiosity piqued after meeting the players can see them play that night. The Quakes begin a seven-game road trip on Thursday and won’t be home again until May 7.
