Save the Date: This Sunday afternoon, May 13 at 5 PM, Halos Heaven is going to be part of a giant Angels Family TV PARTY meetup to watch the Angels play the Rangers in Texas on ESPN. Details will be rolling in all week about some of the festivities, the special, the great charitable cause that it will be supporting and best of all for most of you: lots of good beer. Give mom an early Mother's Day present and head down to Anaheim with your designated driver to meet up and watch a game as the suds flow.
