The special offer is part of Bluewater’s larger “College Bowl Days” promotion for visiting fans and local residents rooting for teams playing in the six postseason bowl games in or near Bluewater neighborhoods: Bluewaters in Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Temecula, Santa Barbara and Avalon for the L.A.
