American Express hosted a giant Warriors party on Saturday night at Pier 35 on the Embarcadero. The event was the fourth “All for Dub Nation” watch party and its largest to date with several hundred AmEx card holders in attendance. Local food and beverage merchants including Chubby Noodle, Don Pistos, Central Station Deli & Market, Three Twins Ice Cream, The Candy Store and Jackson Family Wines were on hand to feed the masses. Guests were able to mingle with former Warriors basketball players, Muggsy Bogues, Antawn Jamison, Adonal Foyle, Tony Delk and Corey Maggette. The highlight of the night? The Dubs 123-101 win over the Pelicans.
