Things to do in Anaheim on June 28th?

I'm currently planning on driving down and dropping off my girlfriend at the ALA conference, then bummin' around until the meet-up at 8pm. I'm looking for things to amuse me. I like music, baseball, drinking, museums… Lunch ideas? Breakfast ideas? Things that I shouldn't miss? Cheap things?

My favorite dive bar in the area (just a few miles from Angels stadium). Surprisingly good food too. Great digital jukebox with search function.

I'm free after about 1. I'll be watching this thread closely.

Get out of Anaheim. Drive down to Newport Beach, or even Laguna Beach. That said, with traffic, it's farther away than it looks on a map.

Bowers Museum and the new Muzeo are probably the closest museums to Anaheim. Bowers tends toward the ancient art/artifacts and has a gemstone exhibit right now. Muzeo has Chicano art, but I haven't been so I can't vouch for it.

There is a Metrolink station right by Anaheim Stadium if you'd prefer to hop on a train and go elsewhere. I'd suggest putzing around window-shopping/having a long lunch with drinks in Orange Circle or downtown Fullerton. Both are the next stops down (south and north, respectively) on the Metrolink.

I just remembered that there's also the Fullerton Museum, which has exhibits on Fender guitars and Blues photos right now. Haven't ever been there so not sure how nice it is.

Drop me a line if you want to get into Disneyland. I'm tight with the Mouse...

Response by poster: Bump…

Maybe I should call around to newspapers in Anaheim.

Argyle, is Disneyland worth it for only a couple of hours on a weekend? I'd be afraid that I'd spend the whole time in line…

Not in June - tourist season has begun.

klang, did you find anything to do? You wanna do California Adventure? We're going if for nothing other than the Tower of Terror. It's a pitch black freefall/chuck you randomly downward ride. I could use some hoarsening. I dunno if it's "worth it" for or not, at $60 or so for the ticket, but at least you'll have company.

Response by poster: I didn't realize you were going to be in town too. I was thinking about sitting out on Disneyland, just because I figured it was gonna be crazy crowded. I hear there's a Mexican swapmeet called the Anaheim Marketplace, and I figured I might also take in a movie. Shame I don't have a laptop, as I could get some work done.
