Champagne showers filled the clubhouse after the Orioles clinched a playoff berth at Yankee Stadium this past weekend, and we’re hoping that there’s a little bit of that Orioles Magic left over for Tuesday’s wild-card game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Though the O’s won’t have the home-field advantage, a handful of local watering holes are throwing viewing parties for fans to tune in from Birdland.
Bmore Around Town: The tailgating experts at Bmore Around Town are hosting an Orange Watch Party at Nobles in Federal Hill starting at 7:30 p.m. For $30, fans can enjoy an all-you-can-eat ballpark-themed buffet, raffles for tickets to Opening Day next season, live DJ entertainment during commercial breaks, and unlimited Bud Light and mixed house drinks until the final out. 1024 S. Charles St., 410-727-1355
This gameday go-to is going all out to celebrate
the O’s playoff run. DellaRose’s will be setting up an outdoor pop-up bar on
the side of the building at 6 p.m., where fans can crack open $3 Bud Light
aluminum bottles and throw back $5 O’s bombs (orange vodka and Red Bull). Other
specials of note will include the bar’s signature mystery shots for $1, as well
as $1 hotdogs.
