What’s better than kicking off the Astros Opening Day in Houston? Kicking off both Opening Day AND the Astros 60th Anniversary! From where to find Astro’s swag to where to watch the game, consider this your one-stop-shop as you gear up for the big day on Monday, April 18.
ROCK YOUR SWAG
A new season isn’t complete without fresh gear to rock. Head to the Astros Team Store to find commemorative 60th Anniversary gear, plus the brand-new Nike City Connect jerseys, vintage pieces, foam fingers and everything in between.
INSIDER TIP: For a less-busy shopping experience, take an early lunch break or quick coffee run to avoid huge gameday crowds the weekend leading up to Opening Day.
HAPPY HOURS & HOME RUNS
You focus on cheering your heart out and we’ll take care of the planning. With baseball back in action, put your game face on and consider these six places to ring in the 60th season.
An All-Around Good Time: McIntyre’s (901 Commerce)
For a guaranteed good time, head to McIntyre’s to watch the game with fellow Astros fans. With food, arcade games, swings and crafty cocktails, McIntyre always pulls in a good crowd – perfect to catch all the Opening Day energy and excitement.
The Hostess with the Mostess: Biggio’s (1777 Walker)
For a 60th Anniversary season, the only way to do it is BIG. For a can’t miss game, head to Biggio’s and watch the Astros score on two 30-foot screens!
The Home Run: La Calle (909 Franklin)
We don’t know about you, but we’d trade hotdogs for La Calle tacos ANYDAY! Race to La Calle to watch the ‘Stros and enjoy Margarita Monday until 7pm with frozen margs and piña coladas for only $4.99. That’s a gameday score that can’t be beat.
The Neighbor: Osso & Kristalla (1515 Texas)
Feel the stadium energy at Osso & Kristalla, just around the corner from Minute Maid Park. Enjoy a pre-game dinner then keep the party going with drinks at the bar as you watch the Astros play ball!
The Curveball: Angel Share (924 Congress)
This local hidden gem is the curveball of the season. Angel Share serves up cocktails that look just as good as they taste – making it the perfect place to sip all season.
The Grand Slam: Saint Arnold Brewing (2000 Lyons)
No explanation needed here, just know there’s a reason Saint Arnold continues to draw amazing game day crowds. Between the food, large TV screen and delicious craft beers – you be the judge. 😉
INSIDER TIP: Utilize free street parking after 6pm, ride the Metro into town or cycle around Downtown to conveniently and safely make the most of your Opening Day celebrations!
